...Earth Offering, Mandala Cards...

For the last seven years I have found pure joy in been making Earth Offerings throughout our travels. I was first inspired by the Q'eros tribe in Peru where I sat in Despacho Ceremony making offerings and prayers to the Apus (mountains) and beauty surrounding us. This collection includes some of my favorite offerings from 2014 now available through ETSY.  

These are great to give with gifts, as gifts or just as prints to hang. With the holidays approaching, the possibilities are endless.

~~Heartbeat of the Mother, Orcas Island~~

Last month, Naia and I returned from a six week road trip through the Pacific Northwest.  We started in San Diego and made our way up close to the Canadian Border.  One of our stops along the journey was on a ferry out to Orcas Island in the Salish Sea.  Many dear sisters were gathering for a drum retreat and it was such a beautiful way to hand off Naia for a bit to her Aunties so that Mama could get in some self love time.  Papa has been on Catalina Island recording music so this has been a beautiful opportunity for me to reflect on my gratitude for Agustin and his help and love for us and our family.  After six weeks apart, we will reunite this coming week!

Mila Redwood taught the drum workshop and Baelyn Elspeth served us tea throughout the gathering.  Jackie Rose lovingly prepared all of our meals with local and organic food right from the island.  One thing I love about Orcas and the other San Juan Islands is their dedication and commitment to banning GMO foods for sale or grow.  It would be so amazing to see the Hawaiian Islands take on this model.

The drum is commonly played by Men and it has been so beautiful for us all to witness an openness  to Women over time.  The Mothers heartbeat can be shared within our own two hands with the offerings of the trees and animal skin for everyone.

Through Spirit Weavers,  I believe we are all beginning to recognize the connections and impact that these short five days together has for years to come.  Many gifts and visions are received there such as the Heartbeat retreat!  Thank you Mila for following through and bringing this dream to reality!  Thank you Indi and all teachers for passing along the drum knowledge so that Women and Men can continue to sing their hearts song!

Spirit Weavers Artwork~ by Karolina Daria Flora

I have posted on here before about my dear sis, Karolina Daria.  She is one of my favorite humans on the planet and she inspires me to no end.  I wanted her to be a part of this years gathering but knew it may not be possible as she most likely would be in Iceland hanging with glaciers and gnomes. I knew her art would be perfect for the gathering.  She puts so much love and intention into the pieces she makes i only imagined something truly magical coming from her hands.  Below are the images she shared of her finished pieces.  In the digital age, much is lost behind and image.  Karolina hand wove each and every piece for the image by hand using the ancient Huichol style of string art.  These were not collaged on but instead woven with love and light for the sisterhood.  Thank you Karolina, you are truly a gem and a light worker beyond! 

 "Preparing that image had been an honor and a great adventure for me to explore a technique used by the amazing Huichol people of Mexico- painting with threads, yet another way of trespassing the rigid rules of linear time, mastering patience and being completely in the here and now.
It's been a beautiful time for me to devote many winter evenings to creation of this piece, with which I want to send my love and bless each person that next week will be weaving magic with Amy and all the wonderful teachers, the Desert, the Sun and the Moon." Karolina Daria Flora
