Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers.

Three Questions from Inner Transitions

The Transitions movement asks people to examine three questions.

1.
What inner beliefs underlie our outer world?

2. What is going on? Why have we made a self destructive world? Why don’t we wake up and do something about it?

3. How can the Transition movement support Inner Transition?


These questions are a platform to begin an inner journey toward the spiritual self. Part of the journey involves recognizing the ancestral wound. Once recognized there follows the question, what should I do with it?


From the indigenous perspective you would begin to work with ritual. The best rituals I've experienced come from the work of Sobonfu Some, Brooke Medicine Eagle, and Anastasia of the Ringing Cedar series.


If you wanted to begin gently, you could get the Women's Wisdom from the heart of Africa audio book set and listen. Just by listening, you'll feel a shift begin to happen.
