The Human Heart of the Shaman

The Human Heart of the Shaman
This weekend, as I was honoring my grandmother and teacher, Madre Sarita, for Dia de los Muertos, she came through me with such force. It is still working on me and thus I don't yet have the words. But I wanted to at least share this with you. It is the original opening to my chapter for "Shamanism in the New Millennium". I was planning on sharing it last month for the book's one-year...

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)

Mountain Lion Medicine

Mountain Lion Medicine
Last week, the Mountain Lion started stalking me again. She has been my Totem for the last 22 years and probably long before that. My first encounter with her was the year before I met Madre Sarita—my spiritual grandmother and the woman who solidified my life as a shaman. That cat came face to face with me on a trail one night, and I came face to face with myself. It was the...
