Spirit works in mysterious and, sometimes, rapid ways. I prayed for a place where I could take the work I had been doing with the zoo animals, building bridges between species, and bring it to the next level. A place where we could work more closely and personally with the animals, and for an extended period of time rather than only several hours.
And then I happened to call Debra Petosa as she was driving back from a workshop held at Earthfire (which had only just begun opening their doors to groups). Deb raved about the weekend, and I was excited about the possibilities. But when someone sent me Earthfire’s powerful video, Energy Healing Wolf, the hair on my neck stood up, and I knew I had finally found the place I had been seeking. And the more I learned about the individual animals and founders Susan Eirich and Jean Simpson, the more sure I became.
I had thought I would organize the event for next year, but Spirit said NOW. So, somehow it all came together in less than one month’s time and the event is a reality. There are people attending from all across the U.S. – from all 4 directions, which is beautiful. For me, being there will be a dream come true, one I hope to share with all of you in a future newsletter. (Coincidentally (not), I later found out that October 4 is World Animal Day which fits nicely with the purpose of the weekend.)
There are still four spots available. If you have been thinking about attending, now is the time. I cannot guarantee that this event will be held again next year as the success of Energy Healing Wolf (which went viral not long after I saw it) has made Earthfire very popular. Deadline for sign-up for A Walk on the Wild Side: Answering the Call of the Wild is September 15, 2010.
And now a special bonus gift is available! Everyone who attends will receive Vi Miere’s latest mist package, One Earth, created for A Walk on the Wild Side. Three mists – Environmental Oneness, Communication, Alignment – are combined in the One Earth package, bringing together Heaven, Earth and Spirit to assist in creating greater connection with the animals for event attendees.
