Family Doin’s

"What about it, Mister Healer-Dealer? Can you strut
your healin' stuff? Got me a bad knee, shoulder ain't right, arrowhead been
stuck in my leg for ten years, teeth gone or rotten, sluice line to my gut
plugged up. Not only that, but I'm spiteful with bad notions." A story from the new novel, The Drop Edge of Yonder.

Homo Luminous: The New Human

Many prophesies in the indigenous world speak of this time in human history as a period of great transformation.

We Are All Shamans-in-Training

The shamanic archetype is one of the major processes that is becoming animated in the collective psyche of our species. It creates a synthesis of the conscious mind and the unconscious, a further evolution in the incarnation of a more all-embracing, integrated and expansive consciousness.

The Artist as Healer of the World

Art-making is a sacred act. Art attains its greatest numinosity and ability to affect others when the creator of the work of art is being transformed by the act of creating. One can mimic sacred art for a living (many people get paid for this) but this is mere forgery. There is a world of difference between copying, imitating, and aping sacred art, and living our own creative experience. When we live creatively, guided by our daemon, our life itself becomes a living work of art.

Breaking Spells We Cast on Ourselves

Our wounding is a numinous event that can initiate us into a deeper level of our being. When consciousness is guided by feelings of gratitude for the wound's offer of self-realization and personal evolution, it reveals itself as a worthy object of veneration. Our wound manifests as a doorway to our healing, a portal through which we can glimpse our infinite potential.
