Sacred activism

Many shamanic cultures believe that reality exists as a result of the Big Dream of the Cosmos. The Cosmos have dreamt you and I into existence. All of creation is like a spider web of life that connects everything (all our relations…our ancestors, our descendants, the standing nation, the plant nation, the two leggeds, the winged ones, and all the … Read More

Winter Solstice Ritual

The winter solstice is the time of rebirth: this is the darkest part of the year, the longest night, when we examine our shadow aspects. We recognize the earth’s natural cycles and creating a ritual or ceremony around those cycles in celebration. I love Christina Pratt’s (of The Last Mask Center) podcasts, Shamanism Now.

I arrived on the Medicine Path in 2011 after I was sexually assaulted.  I was twenty-three and was consequently blindsided by confusion, shame, depression, somatic dissociation, and disconnection from my intuition.

A lesson from the trees

Linden

Have you ever noticed how happy the trees look in the spring time? For me it feels like the trees are reaching out, asking to be touched, greeted, they are saying hello, and blooming just for us. When it’s winter we typically ignore the trees. They are dormant and hibernating, we are cold—maybe walking faster, just trying to get where … Read More

Disconnect to Reconnect

Carrie JordanEarth Wisdom, Womb Wisdom0 Comments

In the beginning of 2017, my man and I decided that every Sunday would be tech-free. It went great and felt amazing for a couple of months, and slowly it faded away for various reasons: two business owners being tech-free for a full day each week proved some challenges with communicating with our teams and our sometimes unruly schedules. Some habits … Read More
