You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.  ~ Mary Oliver Most people have heard of the right brain / left brain division. The right brain is the creative, non-linear, emotional side and the left brain is the analytical, linear, rational side (more or less). Those of us […]

Somatic Wisdom

Lineage Repair Walking. I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands. ~ Linda Hogan We all have ancestors — we are all decendants. When your grandmother dies, she becomes your ancestor. Each of […]

Lineage Repair :: when love flows

The last couple days we’ve been focusing on Permaculture Ethics. Another very pervasive idea in Permaulture is the idea of zones. The kitchen garden is zone 1 and the back 40 is zone 5. That’s the basic idea. There has been, and still in, a lot of thinking about zones 1-5 and how to use […]

Day 3 :: Zone Zero :: site plan of the psyche

Animus Mundi – the world soul is the concept where European philosophy echoes, meets and traces back to it’s own, and all, indigenous roots. The concept goes back in the western tradition at least as far back as Plato. Carl Jung, whose work has been pretty much exiled from the intellectual institutions of our times, […]

Animus Mundi :: new moon invitation

I came to traditional foods and urban farming first through my slow-food Food Cart, Fold Crêperie way back in 2003-6. I was one of the first food-carts to use organic farm-based ingredients and Slow food principles in my cooking or to appear in a gourmet food magazine.

Makings of a Manifesto :: 5 Books that still inspire me

I have been thinking a lot about my calling in life, my work in the world and how it has evolved over my 44 years. I have been asking myself, Why do I work with trauma? Why have I spent so many hours and years wondering and working to understand what happens in trauma. The […]

The Moon was Full Last Night :: why I work with trauma

Nervous Breakthrough: Derived from the oft referred to Nervous Breakdown, a Nervous Breakthrough occurs when, instead of viewing the symptoms of the aforementioned as pathological, one views them as important signs of imminent breakthrough.

Nervous Breakthroughs :: why you need more of them

There is a Palace that opens only to tears – The Zohar I want to get really honest about grief, about what I call The Weeping. I have been in the closet about it for many years, only ever being half honest about how important the release of grief is. I was reminded once and […]

Grief Gates :: how allowing your grief can get you through

Lately I have been thinking a lot about love, about how we are always calculating love’s scoreboard. About how we know we shouldn’t but we can’t help it. It’s natural for us to get tangled up in the do’s and don’t’s, the right and wrong, the eternal calculation of everything. Agonizing over every detail, certain […]

Letting Love Flow

May God break my heart so completely that the whole world falls in. ~Mother Theresa I have been talking about the weeping for many years. Mostly just with myself and the Angels. I sometimes describe it to people to explain why crying isn’t such a bad thing, when it is done right. Why I cling […]
