A Windwalker Earth Day

When I pondered what to write for Earth Day, I felt overwhelmed by the enormity of the task. I wanted to inspire as many people as possible to do something great for the Earth on April 22. I toyed with catchy titles such as “Who’s Your Mama?” to try to attract readers.

While every day should be …Continue reading

Where Was the Natural World in This Conversation?

As I sat in one windowless room after another, I held my retreat sisters and our experiences in my heart while I listened to one presentation after another explaining how to create more sustainable practices by sparking social impact, engaging employees, assessing economic impact, enhancing leadership skills, implementing better technology, issuing more thorough reports, and shifting to more renewable energy sources. Throughout the weekend I came back to one question: Where was the natural world in this conversation? …Continue reading

by Guest Blogger Debbie Noyes

Welcome to my unofficial “What’s for Dinner?” campaign! I’ve posted a lot about GMO’s, palm oil and environmental/wildlife issues (see Lend a Hand to an Orangutan and Is there a Goblin hiding in your Halloween candy?) so I thought I’d backtrack and answer the question, …Continue reading

Is there a goblin hiding in your Halloween candy?

A recent trip down the candy aisle at my local market reminded me that Halloween is rapidly approaching. Since downloading my newly discovered Buycott app which helps me choose companies that support eco-friendly practices, I decided to scan some …Continue reading

Keeping Bees in Clover

Bee in Clover ©2013 Rose De Dan

One fine summer’s day I was outside enjoying the sun, and reading while lying on my lounge chair. Lying on my belly, with my book resting on the ground, the hum of busy bees filled my ears. With the crown of my head almost touching a lushly blooming lavender plant, I could feel the small breezes created by their wings. There were so many that I wondered if there were bees working anywhere else in the neighborhood. …Continue reading

Northern Cat Lights

Recently I purchased a long-overdue, new computer. My new iMac has sped up my work life immensely, and is a sculptural work of art, for a computer (thanks, Apple and Steve Jobs!). However, it has an additional, and probably unanticipated benefit: my cat, Kiya, loves one of the screen savers.

Originally I had used one of the …Continue reading

The Gift of Spirit

Spending three days in shaman time usually results in interesting insights and occurrences, but the first session of the year-long training, Spirited Living: A Journey into Self-Healing, was more interesting than most.

Part of the three-day workshop was held at Camp Long. Located in West Seattle, Camp Long is a Seattle park with a focus on education …Continue reading

The Wisdom of the Animals and Global Warming

Island Countries May Be Underwater As Global Warming Increases

As a shamanic student my teachers advised me to choose my responsibilities carefully. As an individual and a shaman I am feeling called to work toward reversing the trend of global warming, a trend that threatens all of the inhabitants of Pachamama, Mother Earth. Our so-called advanced civilization created this crisis, it is time for each …Continue reading
