The Importance of Starhawk’s “City of Refuge”

As predicted, levels of intensity, exposure, and reactivity continue to increase, so we best learn how to deal with rapidly thinning veils. I’ve said for years that this is not a time for keeping secrets and hiding from your Shadow, as the energies no longer support codependency, collusion, treason, or sweeping things under the rug. […]

Book Review: Starhawk’s “The Fifth Sacred Thing”

A local friend suggested I read “The Fifth Sacred Thing,” so that some of us could form a book discussion group about the ideas and vision of this novel. Although it took me awhile to get into the characters, I quickly saw why my friend has read this book three times and counting. It’s filled […]

Permaculture and the Sacred: A Conversation with Starhawk

This is a fascinating talk and Q&A session with Starhawk at Harvard Divinity School. She covers personal spirituality, planetary crisis, backyard gardens, city planning, stories of neutralizing the WTO and the globalists, “feeding what you want to grow,” the Transition Movement, and much more. An hour and 24 minutes well spent! “Starhawk, contemporary witch, activist, […]

Peace … is Possible

I wrote this post on 2/11/2014, and I’ve already reblogged it. Although slightly outdated with the references to melting starfish and toxic snow, the overall message holds true.

As Carl Jung noted: “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it […]

August 2016 Specials and September Reiki 1 Class

Due to multiple requests and my own intuitive leading, I’ve decided to extend the July 2016 Specials another month. Many people feel the need for ongoing support as they make huge shifts during this intense time period. I’ve also noticed an uptick in bizarre brushes with death and reminders of the very thin skin between […]

Nestle Continues Stealing World’s Water During Drought

Originally posted on Straight from the Horse's Heart:
Before we get to our featured article below, it is important to note that the BLM continues to remove wild horses and burros because of “drought,” or because there’s “not enough” forage and water.  We know there is a “man-made” drought because the huge amount of…

Drought-Stricken California to Ration Water

I appreciate Ann’s thoughtful, heart-full introduction to this post. Every time I read about the drought in California, I can’t help but conjure images from Starhawk’s novel, “The Fifth Sacred Thing.” Indeed, parts of that novel continue to prove more and more prophetic. May we all find our balance, and please — everywhere — let’s […]

Favorite Permaculture and Gardening Resources

Blog readers and local gardeners keep requesting a list of my favorite permaculture and gardening resources. This is probably not a complete list; however, these represent some of the books, strategies and research I’ve read and/or experienced: BOOKS Gaia’s Garden, by Toby Hemenway, is the usual go-to book for at home permaculture. The second edition […]
