I know we have to remember. … I remember when we had dreamers and they knew the water and its first songs, and I remember that the dreamers found water and medicine for the people. Nan okcha. All alive. Remember. – Linda Hogan (Solar Storms) Our hearts continue to break with the murder last week of George Floyd and the eruption of grief and rage throughout the country. We are reminded, daily, of the presence of indifference in Presidential leadership to suffering and an inability, or lack of desire, to help heal the nation [...]

“If there is to be a change, it will come from us. Right here, where we stand. Women were always the story-givers, the memory keepers, the dreamers. Listen now to the land’s long dreaming. Do you see what it is dreaming? It’s dreaming you.” (Sharon Blackie, If Women Rose Rooted) https://amzn.to/2GuT3QZ Last week I was shaken, as most probably you were, by the news of yet another school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. Heartsick, I questioned whether sending this post with a consultation offer was the right thing to do. [...]

The Grandmothers: Secrets of the Old Ones

A few weeks ago I dreamed a group of us women went down to a pool where a herd of elephants was standing. It was very crowded. We squeezed in, skin to skin, with these giant animals who were so strong, so gentle. As we settled into the water up to our chests, the elephants began to rumble, to vibrate. We were there to learn how to tune into their vibrations, to sound with them, at the same level of 500 waves per second, or maybe minute. The attunement was the task. The [...]

In each moment the fire rages, it will burn away a hundred veils. And carry you a thousand steps toward your goal                 Rumi Many mornings this winter I was waking up between 3-5 a.m., with rushes of fear spreading across my collarbone and down the insides of my arms. I have hated it. And really resented being woken up so early, in the dark. I tried all the coping strategies I could think of: Prayer. Chants. Mantras. Swearing. Sometimes I would get up and read. Or [...]

Every morning I take my grandson to practice walking in the sand of the Marina, watching the dabbling ducks, Canadian geese, chortling pigeons, black and white stilts with their brilliant orange legs. Scout especially loves the pigeons. Perhaps it is the majestic sweeps they make overhead, or their constant cooing, or the magical iridescent colors of their neck feathers. Monday as we walked I found myself singing “When the moon is in the seventh house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars. Then peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars. This [...]

Crossroads: New Story of Self, New Map for the World

  It is very windy today, the new green leaves shimmering with light, white blossoms cartwheeling along the street. The very air is heavy with fragrance of freesia, roses, orange blossoms, daffodils. The Earth herself celebrating this Earth Day, expressing her beautiful, bountiful self. The wind is almost like a roar, a call, and I am reminded of Arundhati Roy’s hopeful message: “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” The yellow rose in its spiral unfolding makes me happy, calls [...]

 Early this morning, I woke to the luminous full moon shining in my bedroom window.  A circle of pinkish, pale green set it like a jewel, reflected in the feathery canopy of white clouds.  My sleep interrupted, I was able to recall the last scene of dream I was having:A dark haired woman steps up to the microphone on the small raised platform. We are surprised she speaks for herself and doesn’t have a professional public relations representative. She is the wife of a race car driver, holding court off to one side [...]

"You darkness, that I come from, I love you more than all the fires that fence in the world, for the fire makes a circle of light for everyone, and then no one outside learns of you. But the darkness pulls in everything: Shapes and fires, animals and myself, How easily it gathers them!- Powers and people- And it is possible a great energy Is moving near me. I have faith in nights." - Rilke, trans.  Robert Bly Today is the shortest day of the year, and the longest night.  These three days [...]
