A healing ritual for the world’s waters

“Treat the Earth well. She was not given to you by your parents. She was loaned to you by your children.” Our connection to Water is profound. Life on this planet came from water and is sustained by water. We are born from the water of our mother's womb and from the waters of Mama… Continue reading A healing ritual for the world’s waters

12 Days of Solstice: Honouring the Great Mother

We are midway through the 12 Days of Solstice aka 12 Days of Yule. Numbering the days can become confusing as it varies by tradition: some number from Mother’s Night (the day before Solstice) whilst other number from Solstice itself... and, of course, in some cultures the day begins at sunset the day before.

Honouring our Great Mother on Mother’s Day

This Sunday in Canada (May 14th) - and in many countries around the world - we celebrate Mother’s Day. For some of us, this is a joyful day when we can spend some time with our mother… honour her… laugh with her…. share memories (and cake!). And for those of us who are mothers or… Continue reading Honouring our Great Mother on Mother’s Day

Creating a Relationship with your Plant Allies

A member of our Wise Woman Bean Gealach Circle recently asked about working with Clover as a plant ally, and what that meant.  I responded on a herbal/medicinal level but also suggested I would post separately about what it means to work with our Plant Allies from a shamanic perspective, not just a medicinal one.… Continue reading Creating a Relationship with your Plant Allies
