Animism, Mysticism, and the Sacred Path
1:05:32Michael Kokal interviewed me on "The End of the Road podcast" and we discussed some fascinating subjects related to animism, shamanism, and the spiritual path. Animism is the belief in the existence of individual spirits that inhabit natural objects and phenomena. It is a shared belief and understanding of all native people across the globe since the beginning of humanity. Here are some of the subjects we discuss in this episode: - Understanding the importance of "clear reflection" to receive wisdom - The false idea of separation and not belonging - How to connect to the animate world - The path of service embedded into Nature - The original instructions weaved into the natural world - The vibrations and prayers of the elementals - Hearing the settled voices - Practicing prayers to relate - Calling the invisible And more...

Resilience through the collapse, agroecology & restoring the kinship
59:30I recently had the pleasure to interview Andy the renowned podcaster of "The Poor Prole's Almach" where we discussed some fascinating and essential subjects like: - How to survive the collapse - The opportunity offered by agroecology - Agroecology vs. permaculture - Food & biodiversity, not just for the Human kin - Invasive species & non-native species - A more inclusive definition of "preppers" - No we are not talking about returning to being a caveman or hunter-gatherer - How to restore kinship across the political and social spectrum - The necessity to embrace the changes we are in as a collective - The potential new, innovative, and also ancient solutions. - What you can do to help - And more... The global ecosystem is under immense pressure due to a combination of human activities, such as deforestation, pollution, overfishing, and the burning of fossil fuels. These activities have led to the depletion of natural resources, the destruction of habitats and ecosystems, and the release of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. As a result, we are witnessing the loss of biodiversity, the collapse of ecosystems, and the degradation of soil and water quality. Societally, we are facing numerous challenges as well. Income inequality, poverty, and discrimination are pervasive in many parts of the world, leading to social unrest and conflict. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has further exposed and exacerbated these issues, leaving many people vulnerable and struggling to survive. In terms of civilization collapse, it is important to note that there is no single, widely agreed-upon definition of this term. Some experts argue that we are currently experiencing a slow collapse of our social and political systems due to factors such as economic instability, political polarization, and the erosion of trust in institutions. Others argue that civilization collapse would entail a more rapid and catastrophic breakdown of our infrastructure and way of life. Regardless of the terminology, it is clear that our planet is facing significant environmental and social challenges that require urgent attention and action from individuals, communities, governments, and organizations worldwide. The Poor Prole’s Almanac is a project dedicated to developing a framework for an ecology-centered vision of the world after capitalism inevitably collapses. Our focus is to make ecology and agriculture accessible, replicable locally, and to highlight examples of resilience in history & people actively developing those systems in real time. If the idea of building a better, sustainable world in which humans drive positive change through our relationship with nature across the planet, then this project and our work is for you.

Ancient Cosmology & Medicine Path with Marita One Who Catches Lightning.
1:27:28Marita and I went into a deep dive into some of the essence of the medicine path. Beyond and behind the visible or the heart-lifting steps, there are many steps that are much more difficult, heartbreaking, challenging, and humbling. From the deep daily connection to land, the sacred ancient practice of planting seeds, to the radical responsibility and vulnerability, we can find in this exploration we took together some immense and invaluable nuggets of wisdom. In this replay of our time with Marita One Who Catches Lightning (they/them) we allowed ourselves the space to become the medicine, and remember our relationship to time, creation, and the cosmos through the Mayan calendar. We explore fascinating subjects like: Building relationships with the invisible world Learning authentically from the natural world Calling the teacher and what it takes to stay with the teacher Radical responsibility and humility The power of ancient calendars and their roles in our fate and destiny The difficult processes and steps into the Medicine Path The stories of cacao, corn & seeds and their role in our sacred work The deep teachings of Ancient Cosmology And the long process of remembering & forgetting... Our ancestors and who we are are not only in our dreams or in our remembering but we exist as well in the forgetting. Remembering takes time and vision and so all beings have found an example or a system or an observational language they have to relate to the passing of their journey. This spark inspired the creation of calendars as they relate to time, cycles, the cosmos, and creation as can be seen in the lineages of the Olmeca, Maya, Zapotec, Aztecs, and many more mesoamerican cultures. Join us in this exploration, let yourself receive and feel, and let those seeds Marita planted for us grow deep and slow... So you can remember how to forget.

Cycles, Life & Death, Suffering & Hope
1:01:38Mother nature is cyclical, so we are. All that is born, lives, and dies… It is not something we can control. Embracing this knowledge helps to understand life’s fragility, the importance of being present, the wisdom of acceptance and letting go. In this tender talk, an interview with Gabriela Dias, Tantric Birth & Death Doula, I explore how to navigate life challenges while finding meaning along the way.

The Green Witch interview on Herbal Medicine & Earth Connection Practices
1:24:44The world is changing rapidly. Between Climate change, ecosystems collapse, and the broken political, economic, and social systems, our nervous systems are put under extreme pressure. Yet, your nervous system holds the key to your health and to being able to engage fully in your life. Herbal medicine and simple rituals aid enormously in moving through these times of evolutionary transformation with more emotional ease, greater mental clarity, and physical and spiritual peace. Nourishing herbs like oatstraw (Avena sativa) and nettles (Urtica spp.) help us find our strength. Nervines can help with pain relief, deep sleep, and clear skin. We’ll hone in on the gifts of sedating skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), uplifting St. John’s/Joan’s wort (Hypericum perforatum. Robin Rose Bennett is a storyteller, writer, and herbalist.

Jesus, the ultimate Shaman
1:17:28Hear live from the authors of this new book that explore the bridges between the Christ healing ways and shamanism. In a world increasingly perceived as overwhelming, chaotic, or even dangerous, people are being drawn to deepen their spirituality in response. Shamanism is one avenue that is becoming increasingly popular for achieving that goal. Shamanism derives from millennia of worldwide, multi-cultural practices that connect the ordinary, material world to the non-ordinary world of Spirit. Today, Shamans and Shamanic Practitioners offer simple yet effective ways to help people connect with Spirit. They teach people how to move back and forth between these two worlds, whether for personal, spiritual growth or the healing of themselves, others, and the environment. Jesus, the Ultimate Shaman is an easy-to-read book that covers a multitude of topics. Sally Denny and Steve Bull provide their readers with a basic introduction to Shamanism and describe many of the shamanic tools that are able to be used.

Living in Time of Prophecy with Grandmother ThreeCrow
1:57:11As an elder, dreamer, and visionary, Grandmother Threecrow responds to my questions and shares insight and wisdom regarding this time of prophecy we are living in. Here are some other questions we explored in this exceptional live online connection with Grandmother Threecrow: - Is prophecy written in stone? - Are we helpless? Is it hopeless? - What is this timeline we are all living in and did we sign up for this? And if yes, why would we do that? - Do you believe that we are powerful co-creators and that we can create our own reality? - Do you know about the prophecy of the star children? - Do you know about the prophecy of the rainbow warriors? - Do you know about the power of word, thought and emotions? - Is humanity in a time of great change and transition? - What do you know about frequency, energy and how to use those powers? We explored these questions and more with a deep conversation with an extraordinary elder, Grandmother Threecrow. Grandmother Barbara Threecrow carries the legacy of her ancestors: and a linage of experiencers contactees, communicators visionaries and seers – derives from her heritage; Celt, Nanticoke Lanape/Delaware and adopted Lakota – She is a child born with a Caul, a child of the stars, healer, seer and teacher of earth ways; the way to live in harmony according to tribal consciousness and Creator’s law of one. Grandmother is the caretaker of sacred stones – sacred bundle keeper, leader of traditional ceremony and caretaker of the Can’nupa Wakan Sacred Pipe. Prophecy was given her over thirty years ago, that women were to return to the sacred circle to retrieve their original knowledge – to reset the code of human's fundamental nature: the blueprint of the superior intelligence and how to retrieve the ancient wisdom within our DNA – Grandmother Threecrow shares the truth of our origins, about the Star Children of today and how to see behind the curtain of this Wizards world; the matrix that generations before us were born into. Grandmother says; We are inter-dimensional beings – we are more powerful than ever imagined –she speaks of the original agreements of the soul/spirit and our journey upon the medicine wheel of life – our purpose, place, and point of focus in regards to prophecy. She guides us on how to free ourselves from the fourth world of chaos and transition into the fifth world thousand years of peace – discloses the prophecies realized and prophecies unfolding and how and why humanity is transitioning as is the mother earth; the great ship in this cosmic realm. We are not alone - the ancestors, the E.T's and the elementals whose presence existed from the beginning are our teachers our guides. Grandmother speaks to our achieving of our fullest potential; higher consciousness - inner/standing, psychic extra/sensory clair-audio clair-sentient and the gifts received upon birth. She shares the importance of our knowing that our return is to become that which we were meant to be in this present and future time/line. She will answer the often-asked question: why is this timeline unique and why am I here? Grandmother speaks of the mysteries the truth of the unknown the un-thinkable the unexplained - her wisdom covers a wide range of circumstances, phenomenon and the unexplained is explained from spiritual guidance; the guidance from the Grandmothers of the spirit realm who have been with her from the beginning and before. Grandmother Threecrow share with us the prophecies unfolding, the law of one, this unique timeline regarding the Sacred Feminine the Sacred Masculine, living in the time of prophecy and our being asked to participate during these times of change and challenge. She brings to us the wisdom of those who dwell in the realm of spirit her guides and teachers known as the Grandmothers.
