Teaching Rites of Passage for 35 Years

Desert Flowering

Arriving in the sacred Inyo Mountains I am greeted by an unexpected profusion of wildflowers.  A sea of purle, pink, yellow and red, scattered beneath the pinion pine and junipers.  A testament to the hidden ferticility held deeply in this dry place.

As we come togther in community of people and land, I dig into the dry places whin my soul.  The flowers guides me, I follow their lead.  Some days I draw one, determined to learn its name and the bones of shape, colour, form.  Mountain larkspur, wild heliotrope, segolily - my companions.

“I see the Feminine defined as a reconnection to the Self, a commitment to the wildness within our instincts, our capacity to create and destroy; our hunger for connection as well as sovereignty, interdependence and independence, at once.”

 

– Terry Tempest Williams

CA Spring Vision Fast

Date: 
Apr 9th, 2018 - Apr 20th, 2018

The Vision Fast:  Following the ancient, pan-cultural pathway of fasting alone in the wild, we are called to step into our true nature and remember our home on the earth. In this simple, yet profound way, we can become who we were born to be.
