Word Medicine...

We just have to step in to our dreams; 
and let them go.
Other wise they have no room to grow, 
no chance to refine

what are your dreams my lovelies?

Happy Weekend
Love and Light

Images of Retreat...

three birds
headed out to Cariboo Country
to grieve
to let go
to rebirth
to listen
to awaken
to laugh
to scream
to cry
to celebrate
to live...
to live fully and bravely
their life

They communed with nature
Bore witness to the animals
Spoke with Spirit
Renewed parts of themselves
they had thought long lost.
And rebirthed faith within themselves

Fullness re-Found

Sound good?
This could be you.

Love and Light

Word Medicine Weekends

Let there be no question
All you will ever need for this journey
Was stitched inside of you
by Creator Himself/Herself
when you were formed.

Every tool
Every gift
Every answer.

All you need to do
is go find them.

~Catherine Beerda-Basso

Love and Light my lovelies

What a month you were
beautiful and treacherous
you took me to places unknown
to mountains high and valleys low
you were good to me
edging me closer when I needed to be edged
holding back when I needed to retreat
you held my willingness and eager heart
safely and securely 
you challenged  in one way
and balmed in another.

I am grateful the the richness you bestowed
the treasures given freely
 for the  community

the sister-hood
the family-hood
the spirit-hood
the humanity-hood
of the places you took me.

 I am grateful for Divine Love
and Sacred Wisdom

I am grateful for dark tunnels
with high held lanterns

fires that burn deep into the night
and the light of the never failing sun rise

marking the new beginning
that each day brings

Oh for all these things and more
I am grateful.

Love and Light

The biggest thing that happened in May
was moving The Man-Child,The Young Blood t0 his new home
in Tofino...aka Tuff city
a small surfing community on the edge of the world
the perfect place for a young man
to start a new chapter of discovery in his life.
I could not be more happy for him!

temporary home till his place is ready for him...June 1st

 Blessing to you my son...I love you
