Earth Child to Earth GrandMother

This (poem) was me as a little girl. How does the gift of Time bloom those precious buds of childhood? Through the many twists and turns in the river of life. Here are some of mine...I used to run in the forests and meadows, singing with the birds and loving God and Nature. I would…

Tides of Life

For many years I’ve been celebrating, dancing, and ceremonializing the moon’s changes, clearly noticing energy differences within myself at the dark and full moons. Science has shown us how much the changing moon effects the Earth. Ice sheets in the Antarctic slip 20% faster during the full and dark moons. Billions of tons of ocean…

Nch’i-Wāna Solstice

My memorable sunset was at the Summer Solstice, when a few of us traveled to Nch'i-Wāna - the great Columbia River. I went for a solitary Sacred Drum Journey on the cliffs above Her beautiful waters. This pic was taken at our arrival.‪#‎blessedmoments‬ ‪#‎decemberreflections‬

Eleven Generations

I’ve been doing a lot of preparing for my retreat to the Hoh Rainforest this weekend. Some mundane, like getting stuff packed. But the biggest part is preparing the depths within me for what is to come…opening my heart, mind, and inside eyes to hearing the voices of my Ancestors. To help me in this,…
