Experiencing the web of life

Yesterday while rockhounding in a wooded quarry, I felt myself suddenly pulled by a maple. It wasn’t the grandest tree in the place, and there really wasn’t anything about it physically that stood out, but it just felt different to me. I usually describe being in the heart field of a tree as bet...

Take your place at the table of creation

Long, long ago I got confirmed in the Catholic Church on Earth Day, and at the time I felt there was something significant about the coincidence, but it’s taken me decades to come to it. Last year, when I felt the call to build a garden—I mean a food forest sort of garden, not just […]...

Shared breath

Yesterday I had the joy of sharing breath and heart space with two magnificent beings: a pine tree and my Gramps. What a heart field this pine had. I could barely speak while feeling its energy. I could feel it even 20 feet away, and it was very hard to leave. In its presence, all […]...

Take it to the trees

2020 was the year my Instagram friend Lee and I hoped to meet each other in person, yet who knows when we’ll all be free to travel once more. The other day she mentioned she was going to spend time with her trees and in popped inspiration we both thrilled to: Could she please whisper […]...

Tree and beaver on being

When I am too wound up and heavy-hearted to hear my inner guidance, I take to the trees and bring my favorite tree communicator with me. He found this funny birch that spoke of beaver energy—or should I say BEa-ver energy. I had been putting a lot of pressure on myself the past couple of […...

Trees on intelligence

Spent yesterday with some trees, and it really felt like the woods were thick with knowing. There were some spots where the energy was so sweet and intense, I would just pause to take it in. There was one tree growing by a creek that I felt drawn to. Its energy wasn’t particularly palpable, but [&...

A heart like the sun

Yesterday I spent much of my day scraping off paint, a rather monotonous task that nevertheless gives me occasion for mindfulness practice. As I worked through several layers of paint, I was noticing various thoughts and feelings pass in and out of awareness. One such thought was how this year I had...

Pop-up Akasha: Group landscape

Lots of folks in Mystery & Mastery are currently moving through transition, so last Thursday it felt best to open a pop-up Akasha with the energetic landscape of our lives and see what happened. The Records had us start off imagining ourselves as a grove of trees, standing in a circle. We’...

About space, not time

This morning I woke up with a little nugget of clarity: I am currently spinning the biggest cocoon for myself that I have ever spun in my whole life. I knew that I’d been sitting in the mystery for some weeks now and had long passed the usual phase of resisting it against my better […]...

Loving nature

I was so inspired by a conversation with a new friend the other day. She had a lifelong career as an environmentalist, doing work she was passionate about. Yet upon retirement she realized she had somehow missed the mark in terms of fulfilling her purpose: “There’s a difference between d...
