Hello March 2015

Posted on March 1, 2015 with 0 comments
Goodbye February, it has been such a fleeting time.  Where did those 28 days go?  I had high hopes for so many projects, meetings and adventures, but the reality was I was mostly a bear in hibernation.  The weather was so unnaturally cold here, and the gray days have played a major part in my sluggishness, and painful days.  Fibromyalgia flares up when the barometer changes, and the cold tightens an already tight muscular system.  I never realized that a normal winter in Charleston is so much easier  because the sun shines brightly nearly ever day and takes the edge off the cold.  We are spoiled yes, and boy will I appreciate that sunshine and the lovely Carolina Blue Skies when they return.
I was blessed the last week of February to spend it entirely with Finn.  His whole family was away on business trips, even baby Lane went with Mom.  So Finn and I were two peas in a pod, except when he was at school.  What a joy!  It is hard [...]

Medicine Wheel

Posted on November 10, 2014 with 0 comments
I had the honor of opening sacred space twice this weekend.  It is a practice that anoints the place where people are gathered for sacred purpose.  Although the directions are represented by different animals in the tradition I studied, the message presented below is the same.  
Traveling through the Medicine Wheel is a practice that takes time and deep inner work, but the rewards are simply amazing.  The tools of access to deep peace and great perspective have been worth the journey.  In the new year ahead I will be offering a class on the West direction.  If you think you might be interested let me know.

Elder's Meditation of the Day 
"I believe that being a medicine man, more than anything else, is a state of mind, a way of looking at and understanding this earth, a sense of what it is all about."
-- Lame Deer, LAKOTA

I am excited to be going back to Springbank Retreat Center in April. This time I am very happy to be teaching flute, and creative approaches to painting. I enjoy the environment there so much.  I always come home full of peace, and a sense of how nature is so important to our well-being.  There are wonderful paths through the woods, Grandmother Tree (a lovely ancient oak), a labyrinth, and a thriving swamp that enchants.  My wish is that if you do not get to come to my workshop, you will find your way to Springbank some time in the near future for a time away from all our busyness.  Please check out their website at
This will be a great opportunity for all those who have secretly wondered if they can play a musical instrument, or paint a picture.  You do not have to be a musician, or experienced artist to embrace the knowledge of how to express yourself with these two mediums.  Our Spirit is always calling to us.  We sometimes just [...]

September 21

I am looking forward to heading back to Springbank Retreat Center in Kingstree, South Carolina.  It is such a beautiful site.  I cannot decide between Grandmother Tree, the labyrinth, the swamp, or the sacred circle as to which is my favorite.  I guess it all adds up to a place where my energy rises.  
Becky Becker and I are going to lead a workshop on the joys of the autumn season.  It is harvest time on the land, and also it can be harvest time for us to look at the past seasons and feel gratitude for what we have accomplished, received, but also to weed out that which does not serve us anymore.  Becky will be focusing on art projects to express our desires and feelings.  Opportunities will exist to do Journey Dolls, Wisdom Sticks, and Vision or Dream artworks.  There will be meditations, flute music, journaling, and reflective times on the beautiful grounds of Springbank Retreat.
