One Foot In This World, One Foot In the Next

At this time of year when, as our ancestors would say, there is a “thinning of the veils between this world and the next,” when Nature unabashedly undresses before our eyes and goes to rest in the Underworld, I felt it timely to discuss this thing called “death”. People often speak to me of theirContinue reading “One Foot In This World, One Foot In the Next”

Dance, Cry, Laugh, Hug, Howl at the Moon, Tell Stories, and (most importantly) Stay Human!

It’s not that I relish performing live before an audience. To be honest I’m very reclusive, as most artists probably are. Yet standing before a crowd, baring my musical soul, dance, and voice – vocally or through my horns – always felt like necessary medicine in overcoming stage fright, singing my truth, and expressing myContinue reading “Dance, Cry, Laugh, Hug, Howl at the Moon, Tell Stories, and (most importantly) Stay Human!”

Ethical Harvesting of Wild Foods

In light of crops trying to adapt to ever-changing climate patterns, and so many extreme weather patterns of late, I have wondered what food cultivation and water supplies will look like over the next number of years. Actually, I’ve wondered this for a couple decades and built a healthy library on the topic, but didn’tContinue reading “Ethical Harvesting of Wild Foods”

Creating Structured Water With the Analemma Wand

I purchased an Analemma Water Wand some months ago when I first listened to an interview between its inventor, Dolf Zantinge, and host Tom Cowan, MD. While I do not pretend to fully understand how quantum physics in the 3D realm operates, my bodywork healing practice of 17 years reveals that a great deal happensContinue reading “Creating Structured Water With the Analemma Wand”

Horses! How They Heal Our Hearts!

Not knowing in early 2020 whether our clinic would/could reopen I chose to expand my education into the field of equine and small animal massage and acupressure. Facing my fear of horses was the biggest hurdle and MAN am I glad I did. Over a year later a true love affair has blossomed that keepsContinue reading “Horses! How They Heal Our Hearts!”

Three Things You Can Do…

3 things to inspire you to get outta bed each day: 1-Seek novelty. Have you learned something new lately? Been to a new bioregion? Spent time in Nature? When you seek novelty and find it, lose it, then seek and find it again you’ve increased your dopamine (pleasure hormone) levels fourfold. In other words, theContinue reading “Three Things You Can Do…”

Shine Your Light!

Watching this show on Chaco Canyon. The narrator said, “..the ancients were marking the center point of time, where Heaven and Earth meet (Equinox – even day and night), and the powerful ones lived in circular houses. They could communicate with all of Earth’s creatures and elements”. I realized at that moment a rainbow fromContinue reading “Shine Your Light!”

Nature’s Message 🌲🌷🌏

I slept outside last night to be closer to the Earth. I don’t want to be homeless or surrounded by noisy tourists in a campground to know the feel of the planet under my body. I awoke this morning a little achy but way more alert. Why choose to occasionally sleep in one’s own backyardContinue reading “Nature’s Message 🌲🌷🌏”
