Equinox - March 2013

Blessings to this auspicious day -
An Equinox welcoming in the spring,
and in other lands,
ushering in the fall.

A time for warming the blood -
Moving the old bones in the heightening sun,
or searching out that hibernating cave.

Whichever way you are welcoming this day,
it is a turning point.
And from here, nothing will remain the same.
Welcome what this day has to offer,
and feel its blessings
in your heart of hearts.

Re-Connecting - Again....

Am I the only one out there who returns to a project several times to re-invigorate it after leaving it alone for a time? I hope not...

So much has happened - not happened - this past year. I have been reflecting on the initiatory experience this has been, and am aware this is one of those times that my teacher Sandra referred to as "I wasn't sure I would live through".

Well, I am still here and better for it.

There is so much going on in the world today - so much pruning and old vines, and so very much new growth coming from the branches. In the northern hemisphere, spring is well on the way, and the days are getting longer. The cold is giving way to the warm, even in the midst of March snow storms here and there.

I made a promise to myself that I would get my creative juices rolling again after a bear-like hibernation. This blog is one way to do that. So in the next few weeks I will be exploring how to blog on a regular basis, and how to share with a broader audience some of the thoughts and insights I am having. I will also share some things from others who are inspiring me at this time.

Just a bit of news first...

April 13th is my ordination as a priest in the Independent Catholic Church (Old Catholic). This has been a calling I have tendered for many years. So many of my shamanic practitioner colleagues have indicated over the past 10 years that I am a bridge (lol, I've been called worse...) and that I would bring a shamanic understanding to the Jesus Path. I never thought it would quite look like this, but it does "fit" very well. I taught a few workshops on Christ-Centered Shamanism and the resonance I experienced was profound and life affirming. It is being drawn into a deeper level with this ordination. When I said "yes" to it, I had no idea just how profound it would be, and I am very humbled my the awareness of its impact upon my life right now...

In the meantime, if you are ever in Kingman AZ on a Saturday afternoon, come by:

So stay tuned, and I will be posting on a somewhat regular basis... If you want to be on a mailing list to receive this and other creative input, please let me know.

Blessings and Light,
