A story of animal communication and compassion



Wild buffalo have walked the earth for tens of thousands of years. The planet chose them, through millions of years of evolution, to be the creators and caretakers of the grasslands and prairies. The buffalo are our elders, our relatives on this earth. They are not some presence who has suddenly appeared and become a 'problem' that humans must manage to death. They do not make mistakes. Humans do. Buffalo were chosen for the job that they do: walking the earth, gently eating the grass, tilling the soil, carrying the seeds, fertilizing the earth, creating habitats for other species, awakening water underground in the aquifers to help bring the rains, and to offer their abundant bodies as food and nourishment for not just humans, but for other predators and scavengers alike--for the land herself. They possess ancient wisdom that has been carried through their memories and blood lines since buffalo time began. They adopt orphans. They mourn the dead. They carry their young in their wombs for nine months. They teach the young. They care for the elderly. They play. They become frightened. They find comfort. They tend to each other. They teach us to be family. They want to live. Once upon a time we listened to them. We have forgotten to listen. The people who cause the buffalo so much suffering have become deaf and blind to their teachings. They have to, or they could not do what they do. But the buffalo are still here, still sharing their wisdom, still offering themselves. But the buffalo have that kind of patience, if they can survive this human culture, they will be there waiting for us to catch up."—Buffalo Field Campaign

Wild Reiki & Shamanic Healing Calendar offers Rare Glimpse into Secret Lives of Cats

EWorldwire, October 4, 2006

Seattle alternative healer Rose De Dan has released her calendar, “Cats: Urban Tigers, Shamanic Perceptions 2007.” As an animal communicator, Reiki Master and shaman, she combines her photos with cutting-edge graphics to reveal the soul of the cat.

SEATTLE, Wash./EWORLDWIRE/Oct. 4, 2006 — Seattle artist and specialist in alternative healing for animals, Rose De Dan has released her 2007 calendar titled, “Cats: Urban Tigers, Shamanic Perceptions 2007.” De Dan, founder of Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing, maintains a healing practice for animals as well as for humans. Sharing her skills as a graphic artist with Alex Guillotte, De Dan uses her own photographs to create exquisite images of cats for each month of the year. Included with each image is a quote that reveals some secret about the mystery of the cat.

A dedicated environmentalist as well as a trained shaman, De Dan produces the calendars annually to share with her clientele and the general public how animals can positively impact the lives of humans.

“The purpose of this calendar is greater than the presentation of pretty images,” De Dan noted. “It is about recognizing what we have in common with the animals who share our lives and what they have to teach us.”

Partially disabled by an auto accident and unable to range far and wide for the perfect cat image, De Dan chose to prowl the haunts of her own neighborhood to capture the elusive and secretive nature of cats. The result is a full-color art and photography calendar that gives a rare glimpse into the enigmatic lives of the local cats who live nearby.

The 12-month spiral-bound calendar offers a unique, feline image for each month. Measuring 11″x17″, the calendar fits neatly on the wall. Sturdy, high-gloss paper gives plenty of room on each day to write down commitments and reminders. This monthly calendar retails for $17.99. A different version featuring a single image and the year-at-a-glance retails for $5.99. All twelve images are available in this less expensive format.

A portion of the calendar sales will be donated to local animal rescue organizations to assist less fortunate animals in finding permanent homes. Persons interested in purchasing the calendar may order directly from the CafePress website.
