Fall & Winter

Changing Market

In response to many who have expressed a desire for a deeper, more satisfying personal connection with the world of First Nations people, I am pleased to offer you a series of Workshops & Personal Retreat Days  that I conduct on my land in Udora, located just 15 min. N of Uxbridge. During our time together we will share and enjoy an experience that allows us to respond to the rhythm of Nature as we collectively enjoy lovingly prepared homemade food, walks in the woods and connection to All of our Relations.

Fall & Winter

 

4 Season Medicine Walk – (Four part Retreat Series)

In Native tradition, Medicine is anything that will aid the seeker in feeling more connected and in harmony with Nature and all life-forms.  Anything that is healing to the body, mind, and/or spirit is Medicine.
In the way of my Ancestors, I have chosen to offer these insights through a Four Season Medicine Walk retreat series which acts as a bridge to the ancient understandings of Native Knowing Systems.
Please join me as we move into the fall and winter phases of our Medicine Wheel journey.  Introspection is the medicine that awaits the seeker in the Western direction.  The season is Fall when the spirit of the bear summons us to our own caves seeking the answers within through our dream time. Moving slowing to the Northern direction is the winter season that guides us to the sacred place of the Elders where wisdom is revealed and gratitude expressed in prayers of thanksgiving.   Note:  the fourth part of the series (Winter) will be offered approx. 6 weeks after the Fall retreat.  Participants can begin their 4 part series at anytime during the cycle and are encouraged to complete all four seasons.
