The Heart(h) of your home

  I work with my allies daily, sometimes in simple ways — such as connecting with Mama Earth in a walk in Nature at a local greenway or park — and at other times in more complex ways: sitting at my altar, journeying with my ancestors and other allies, performing rituals. One of the thoughts… Continue reading The Heart(h) of your home

Wisdom from Canada Goose

I went for a quiet walk along Kitsilano Beach here in Vancouver, one of my favourite ways to connect with Mama Earth, and to meditate and reflect. And I saw so many Canada Geese! Some were loudly honking at me, defending his/her territory, while others stood guard, ever vigilant . . . and perhaps wondering… Continue reading Wisdom from Canada Goose

We need to remember the songs…

For me, Earth Medicine is about our spiritual relationship with Nature... such as how we synchronize our energy with her, the healing herbs that Mama Earth provides us, protecting and promoting the sustainability of all life and the health of the planet.

Dreaming with the Stars

What do you see when you look up at the night sky? What do you dream about when you see the stars, the moon, a comet or a shooting star? When I was a child, I dreamt of being an astronaut or an astronomer...or both. I loved the night sky... identifying the planets and constellations,… Continue reading Dreaming with the Stars

A Lughnasadh ritual for Abundance and Rebirth

I love this quote from Henry David Thoreau, which - for me at least - perfectly captures my thoughts about Lughnasadh and other harvest festivals... that true abundance is intangible and that we are a speck in the immense cosmos around us, a piece of stardust in the human form. “The true harvest of my life… Continue reading A Lughnasadh ritual for Abundance and Rebirth
