In this little clearing in the Internet jungle, you’ve come across a tribe engaged in the mysterious art of moving beyond the contracted limitations of “normal reality” into a realm of expansive possibilities.

You are more than welcome here: you are essential!

The simple truth: your expanded capacity for love, compassion, and caring is the evolutionary transformation and awakening now emerging within our species.

My grandfather was a shaman, and I continue our lineage – although the word “shaman” is not a title, it’s a description of our shared capacity to expand our perceptions and our unique gifts – becoming higher, deeper, and broader vibrational beings.

We’re all being called to ignite our creative agility and joy –and you are a life affirming response to the damage and distress caused by the powerful predatory exploitive systems that have ruled our world.

We’re an eclectic community of people affirming “love in action” in our world – and I invite you to join us!

I celebrate your deepest inner resources – including your healing and well-being – extending to your family, your friends, neighbors, community, work relationships, and to all who we share life with here on Earth. Please look around and make yourself at home.

My book – A Shaman’s Guide to Deep Beauty – is a highly recommended introduction to the realm of expansive possibilities – with shamanic wisdom stories, practices, and exercises to help you navigate these changing times.

Video w/Francis

Fear! Amplified fear, compounded and endlessly reinforced fear! Fear is the great powerful motivating force being used to direct our behavior – to insure that the “lock-down” is maintained – to “flatten the curve” – and to theoretically keep us safe – safe from fear. As a modality, fear provokes an alarm response – we are being attacked! And as our bodies go into adrenalized flight or fight reactions, unable to do either, we “freeze.” This third reaction – more…

Solstice Ceremony

This coming Solstice occurs on Saturday June 20th at 2:44pm PDT – please make adjustments for your time zone.
