Learn to Become a Spiritual Caretaker of Your Community and the Earth

Learn to Become a Spiritual Caretaker of Your Community and the Earth

Divination is about so much more than one on one interpersonal dialogue. Divination is community medicine. Divination has a much larger role it wishes to play within communities and with the earth. Divination has a public component that is wanting to be explored. It’s time to take it to the community.

There is a wholeness to the medicine that wishes to be articulated.

The Strega Tree Collective has for many years been working on the land with the local spirits and sacred spaces that need tending for the good of the whole. Now we are offering a class to teach others to learn these methods and techniques. The class, taught by Theresa C. Dintino, is based on her newest book: Membranes of Hope.

Overwhelm and the Art of Procrastination

Overwhelm and the Art of Procrastination

How are you holding up lately? With sincerity, I hope that you are healthy, occasionally seeing friends and family in person, and able to pull off most of the tasks at work and home that are required of you.  I (Sarah here) feel like I am riding the wave of stop and go with some finesse. I can never know when my child might be home for a surprise week off of school which can cause me to cancel all of my work.  When we drop back into the rhythm of school, I witness a lack of “get ‘er done abilities” and make poor use of the window of “free” time.  I am full of good intentions to accomplish my long list of tasks, but overwhelm and ADD kick in and I basically walk in circles.  I feel like I might not be alone in this, so I will share what helps me to not feel like I am letting down my team in the other realms.

Welcoming the Dark with Dark

Welcoming the Dark with Dark

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, especially in the U.S. where we just “turned our clocks back” then you cannot but notice that we have entered the time of darkness. Though the shortest day of the year is December 21, November often feels like the darkest month. Time to slow down and welcome the dark. Traditionally this is done by bringing in the light: lighting candles, putting up twinkly lights, but how about sitting with the dark in the dark and letting it greet your own dark? How about acknowledging the dark with dark instead of light?
