Happy Winter Solstice

Today is the shortest day of the year and tomorrow Winter begins and the return of the sun for those of us in the Northern hemisphere.  Winter is a time for turning inwards.  The hard work of harvest and storage is done.  The land sleeps and we can rest from all of our hard work…

Ebodiment as Fall From Grace?

Instead of forming structure and culture from the perspective of humanity’s fallen nature doomed to an embodied life, perhaps the structure could be formed around humanity being spiritual beings that live in harmony with the All That Is.  And that life would consist of far more than the embodied life experienced on earth.  And what…

Awi Usdi (Little Deer)

This is the story of the First Man, the Cherokee story of our first male ancestor as it is told in my family.

My heart goes out to everyone affected by the Clackamas Town Center shootings yesterday afternoon.  To the families of the deceased including the shooter and to the young lady who is recovering from her injuries and her family, my prayers are with you during this difficult time. To all the patrons of the mall, I’m so…

Body Soul Reflection

In order to talk about spiritual matters, well to talk about anything really, our logical left brains categorize things, make structure and meaning out of things, which has led us, along with hundreds of other influences, to talk about the soul and the body as separate entities.  Spiritual and religious teachings reinforce this by talking…
