A Lesson In Letting Go

In the middle of winter, there is a temptation to numb our senses while we wait for the flowers and bumblebees to come back in the spring.  But each season holds an equal amount of wisdom that is just waiting to be unlocked by those who are truly awake. Our ancestors had no choice but to listen.  Their lives depended on it and their spirits thrived on the deep understandings that were inspired by the earth cycles around them. Native shamans, granny healers and wise elders weave their own ... [Read more...]

Words Of Wisdom To Lighten Your Load

Have you ever read something that so closely matched a thought you were having just moments before that your jaw had no choice but to drop halfway open? I was meditating on the importance of patience and trust last night, and BAM – I stumbled across the passage below first thing this morning. “My wish is ever strong that you find enough patience within you and enough simplicity to have faith. May you gain more and more trust in what is challenging and confidence in the solitude you ... [Read more...]

The Healing Magic Of Tree Mushrooms

If you’ve spent some time in the woods, you’ve probably seen a tree mushroom before. These ornate and often multi-colored organisms grow only on living or decomposing trees, and there is a large variety of them in the Earth’s forests. But did you know that many of these are superfoods? In today’s video, I am joined by special guest Tero Isokauppila, a Finnish wildcrafter who is on a mission to bring medicinal mushrooms to the world. He and I delve into 3 of the most powerful tree ... [Read more...]

Staying Centered In A Wild World

The other day I did something I shouldn’t have. Before going to bed, my wife Michelle and I made the mistake of reading some mainstream news headlines, which – as you know – are fear-based with only small bits of levelheaded truth. Not a smart way to end my day! “If it bleeds, it leads!” This saying was true when it was first spoken a few decades ago, but is probably truer now than ever. The tricky thing about fear is that it can be contagious, like a wild fire. It ... [Read more...]

What Being Naked In The Snow Taught Me

7 years ago, during a rite of passage in a snowy Connecticut forest, I learned firsthand the power of cold and hot temperatures to transform us. I had been invited to spend some time with a traveling shaman, who we’ll call Juan, and his inner circle of friends for the weekend. I knew that anything was possible, but I never would have predicted the lesson I was about to receive. On the second day of my visit, I was sitting on the stone hearth of a warm fireplace, connecting with some very ... [Read more...]

Helping the Healers Who Help Us

A while back, we shared a powerful drumming ritual from one of our spiritual brothers, Dan Hull.  Despite the loss of use of his legs years ago, Dan has continued to heal many others through his powerful ceremonies. His dedication to spreading love and the teachings of the Red Road is as strong as ever. Over the years, one thing that hasn’t been quite as strong is Dan’s hand-controlled van, which allowed him to remain independent and physically reach many people to assist them... [Read more...]

3 Promising Native Remedies For Cancer

If there’s one word in the English language that has the power to stop anyone in their tracks, it’s “cancer”. This shadowy disease can impact your life and the lives of everyone you know, even if you don’t have it. My grandmother died of cancer when I was 16 years old and it hit me like a bolt of lightning. Her passing shook us as a family and still hurts to think about today. Without knowing the specifics, I can safely say that you’ve endured a similar loss ... [Read more...]

This Iroquois Autumn Soup Holds Many Secrets

Up here in the northern hemisphere, we’re entering a beautiful time of year when the weather remains warm even as the colder months approach. In the States, we call it “Indian Summer”, but this is experienced by many countries across Europe and Asia as well. In Germany, Austria, Lithuania, Estonia, and Finland this warm period of autumn is called “Old Women’s Summer”. This is the time of the harvest, and with the bounty of fresh produce available from local farms, ... [Read more...]

You Are Your Greatest Ally

Human beings are incredible creatures, capable of doing so much good. Many folks spend their entire day giving to others—physical care, emotional support, intellectual ideas, and more—and they do it without a second thought. BUT, we “two-leggeds” are not always great at taking care of our own needs. We frequently prioritize other people and projects over our own basic care, whether that is spiritual support and nourishment, or something more immediate and physical. When it comes...

The Death of “Am I Good Enough?”

A few months ago, a close friend recommended that I meet Laurie Gerber, a life coach who bridges both the sacred and the scientific in the work she does. I was struggling to find balance between my life mission (serving you, The Sacred Science community) and my personal life at home as a father and husband. I was spread thin and feeling overwhelmed. At first, I was kind of skeptical about Laurie because she didn’t fit the description of what I would think of as a healer…  But after our ... [Read more...]
