Michael 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 episod...

Marita 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 imme...

Mother 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.

Following his visit, we recorded this video with his main / oldest student (Charles) to share about the magic we witnessed.

The reason Chee Ramon agreed to share this knowledge is that the old ways are rapidly d...

Turn it up! Turn it down. Have we come to believe it must be true because it’s loud?  Lights flash and voices shout from every corner.   The noise is deafening, and it seems we’ve forgotten how to listen to the softer voices offering wisdom for this Shifting Now.  It seems we’ve come to believe for something to be effective it must pack a punch, require extensive travel, pause our daily life, and disrupt.  But this is not so. ...

I invite you to come back into being, to sit with me as we embark on the journey of great remembering. Remembering that we are not only the Little Brothers and Sisters to all that surrounds us, but also that we are them and they are us. They - we - have been waiting and watching for the moment to listen. The Animals have so much to share with us, not only wisdom but truth about ourselves. Even the most unexpected creatures, mundane...
