Dear Ones

I am immersed in the revelations in Spain, working with the Earth Mother and Blessed Mothers of the Other Realms.

First, in Montserrat, with the Sacred Mountain, a most holy mountain, revered for eons by early cultures, and at the Cathedral of the Black Madonna which rests on her shoulder, we experienced the heart of the mountain literally open to us, pouring blessings upon us through the imprints of the sun, just as we completed the Tree of Life practices, awakening the Sacred Dragon of the mountain.

The mountain spoke, as I sat alone upon its crown the next day, peering into the heart of the City of Barcelona from miles and miles away. 

"None of this is important," the mountain said to me, speaking of what we pour our hearts and energy into for daily survival and accumulation of resources in this lifetime. 

"All that is important," her voice rose, "is Realization (of one's true self, one's true essence or nature,) Liberation (freeing one's self from all that entangles or binds us from perceiving our true nature or attaining Realization,) and Celebration (living in harmony with All Life, honoring and valuing the beauty, richness, uniqueness, and vitality of every precious one, person and thing, in this Great Wheel of Life, truly connected to All Life, through the Heart of Realization.)

I sat in deep gratitude and contemplation of this blessed revelation.   The Black Madonna, the Dark Mother, in the Basilica, also spoke.  She is the aspect of the Sacred Trinity of the Divine Feminine, the Element of Transformation, and the connection of the people to the Earth Mother, that the church could never quite stamp out, hard as it was tried.  Her culture is prevalent in Europe, though many in the US are not fully aware of this.


I flew to Galicia a few days later, where we held practice in a 500 year old stone monastery, dedicated to the Virgin Goddess, the aspect of the Divine Feminine from which Life springs eternal.  Here, the stones, built in the ancient geometries, which enlivened the sanctity of the place, sang with us in sacred ceremonies of the Doorway to the Ancestors, to enliven and clarify our most ancient roots.  Those of you who love sacred sound, must find places like this to sing and play, as the tapestries of sounds are so enlivened and enriched through the geometries and ancient sanctities of such places.

The next day we were escorted by a young ward of the Celtic Mysteries.  He, like so many here, are looking for their true roots, and he is part of a research group gathering evidence of the lost Celtic and pre-Celtic cultures of this region.  DNA testing proves his ancestors to possibly be the oldest of Celtic origins in Europe.  I dearly enjoyed the connections, as part of my own family's ancestry has roots right here, in Galicia.


The Temples to the Father Sun and Mother Moon and Earth are so alive and tangible.  One most prominent one, a great stone broke open like a Yoni, ready to receive the sun on Summer Solstice Sunrise, with a cave formed beneath it, with the waters of a great spring pouring through it.  Here we touched Her Body, climbed into Her Womb, drank Her Blood, bathed in Her Nectars.  The Heart of the Mother is open to each of us, should we just reach out to touch her.


As I wrote this yesterday, I was, literally, in a car driving back from Navarre (the Basque provinces,) where we met the Virgin Queen Mari (not to be confused with Maria or Mary.)  She is the Earth Mother Goddess of one of the oldest, least known cultures in Europe, the Basque.  Here, as she awaits her consort Sugaar, the Dragon, she also awaits her people to re-awaken, and wed her once again.  Again, it was a young man inflamed with the passion of the Goddess, who guided us to ancient caves and mountains that are her dwelling places here among the people.  We prayed and sang to her, and danced with her elementals, as well as the Hawks, Eagles, and Falcons upon Pilatos' Balcony, a powerful dragon point; a ridgeline where a river literally pours out of the breast of the mountain, just beneath a giant, natural, ancient stone god/goddess face in the mountain wall.  Here is but one of the places Mari awaits her dragon husband to re-emerge and claim her throne, with her beloved.  And, again, awaiting her people to awaken with her.


Above, we walked amidst the wisdom of the Elders, in a grove of ancient Grandmother Beech, awaiting our renewal.


Now, still suspended in great bliss, joy, and gratitude from these immersions, I have just returned from a most potentized cave, where a young Arabic Princess, nearly a thousand years ago, saw the Black Virgin Mother appear to her, and instruct her to build a church here, in her honor.  Not one, but five churches abound in this ancient walled village of Brihuega, built, also, in the sacred archictectures, which preserve the mysteries, and open the portals through the use of Sacred Sound.  The Gatekeeper of the church over and over, with gratitude and joy, welcomed us to sing from the Heart of the Mother, in each sanctuary.  We truly have been uplifted.


Spanish Kings and Queens have made their summer palace here since that time, built next to the main church of the Black Virgin.  The treasure of the kingdom lies hidden in the cave beneath it.  Again, she is the aspect of the Feminine which transforms, makes new life, restores balance and integrity, protects the innocence.


The mysteries truly are alive, and unfolding for us here.  And everywhere.

The Earth is Awakening to our renewed calling for ancestral relations, elemental relations, and to the joy and the beauty of the people emerging in equal grace.  The Laws of Abundance are upon us.  We are being called to procreate the Earth with care and joy, in alignmnet with Universal Harmony.  This is the Time.  The Time of the Prophecies, dear ones, are upon us.  It is time. 

This Fall and Solstice, we, also, are preparing special programs in Vermont to assist in aligning and creating, in Dreaming the New Dream of Creation, together, as we move through this foretold Gateway of Potential, in this Time of Meeting Ourselves Again*.

It is through work, such as this, that it is happening.  The conscious interaction, and dedicated wisdom of each of us who come in preparation and readiness to open to, and receive the blessings and revelations, to meet the mysteries within our own heart, through authentic presence and inquiry, and availability to the Mother and all Holy Beings to speak to, and through us.


We welcome you in this work.  Not to our work, per se, but to THE GREAT WORK, as it has always been called!  Each of us has a part in it.



But, for those who feel called, I certainly invite you into this body of work, also.

I have been delayed through the many ongoing programs I am offering worldwide, but for you who have been waiting, I now have most information available for most programs for the balance of this year.

We have an incredible array of new programs coming up with sacred tours and retreats, as well as 1 and 2 day weekend workshops across New England, Canada, and Europe!  For my Sacred Sound Healing trainings, I not only am offering a special 5 Day Sounds of the Shaman program in July, but will be creating 4 - 6 day trainings, instead of 8 - 3 day trainings this year.  One training per quarter, in a residential center.  These will start Sept 25-30, so mark your calendar!  This are not yet listed, but will be here.

If you are in other parts of the world, and would like participate, or host us, contact our offices!  We can offer many of these programs anywhere.


These programs offer incredible and unique opportunities to enter the realms beyond normal cognition, the realms of our true awakened and luminous nature.  They cannot be understood until experienced.  The cognitive mind cannot grasp the greater realities.  We each must find the method and doorway into the Mysteries which work for us.  These methods work in most profound ways.  It is not uncommon for individuals to come out of our practices feeling they have had the most life transforming experiences they have ever had.  We go deep into the work.  We welcome you to join us.  We are offering deeply discounted programs in Vermont to assist many of you who are challenged by our current economy.  We suggest you try a program while this is still being offered.  The Three Mothers May 5-6 in Chester will be one such potentially life altering program to try this work, if you have not attended, or to deepen your experiences with Awakening, and with the Blessings experienced through reaching into the Holy Realms, and the Holy Beings residing there, if you are already doing the work.


Through creating sacred space, renewing sacred relations, and viatilzing our spirit as we prepare for the re-emergence of the New Humanity in  these "Times of Meeting Ourselves Again*  ( *From the Qero peoples of Central Peru, direct descendtns of the Inkas, bringing forward their teachings and proppheices of these times, like the Maya, and so many more.)  We often incorporate their wisdom, and their techniques into our work, along with the mystical components of ancient Hinduism, Tantric Yoga and Tibetan Buddhism, Taoism, and other Native Cultures.


We welcome you into the practices.


I look forward to seeing each of you again!

Many blessings in ALL that you do!!

Our School of Sound Healing teaches these practices.  Watch for our next article on the art of Sacred Sound, and how to attune to heightened states of consciousness, embrace, embody and voice them.
Our Egyptian practices, and other esoteric programs, embody these principals, such as our upcoming Horus and Golden Body Practices.
And, they are part of our Earth Energies classes.
