Hello, Medicinal Hoopers and Spiritual Dancers! There is a symphony of birds outside my window, and Spring has taken her sweet time and finally sauntered into our mountain valley in Southern British Columbia. At last, I have bare ground to dance on, and this Earth girl is need of a heavy dose of the Great Mother!
The last year has been somewhat of an uprooting of old identities, letting go of past dreams and ideas for my life here in the Kootenays, and as a result choosing to move from our heritage farm in Kaslo deeper into forest, deeper into where my heart longs to be, with Nature.
I've been asking for a path to service in the world, my heart really reaching for that vision of hosting healing retreats here in the wilderness, and then bringing hoops and healing to those less fortunate, and holding space for releasing trauma, teaching others how to rise from despair and PLAY again. I think the two ideas married together make a beautiful picture, and creates a sustainable model for me to be out there helping others in all kinds of communities, conflict zones, prisons, schools, orphanages, mental health facilities, temples; wherever I am needed. I have really accepted this call from the Universe of service and i believe there is a way! More to come about that!
In the meantime, I am building a new life for myself and my wonderful family here, and I will be releasing the details of the first annual Medicine Hoop Nature Retreat in 2014, aiming for end of August, in the incredible Purcell Mountains and Kootenay Lake region. I look forward to this new beginning, and to seeing you in the Hoop! So.Much.LovE!
