Divinations in Boulder, Colorado ~ May 20 – 22, 2016


It is possible that we have been brought
together at this time because we have
profound truths to teach each other.


Healing comes when the individual remembers his or her identity, the purpose chosen in the world of ancestral wisdom, and reconnects with that world of Spirit.

I have learned that every human being, including the most educated and sophisticated, desires ritual almost more than anything else. They want it for the resuscitation of the wild and wise savage who hides somewhere in the psychic recesses of even the most highly cultivated person. They want it because of the eternal craving of that part of the self that will never quit wanting to be intimate with Spirit.
