Membranes of Hope: A Guide to Attending to the Spiritual Boundaries that Keep Lifesystems Healthy from the Personal to the Cosmic
by Theresa C. Dintino
“I write to figure things out.This was proving to be true once again. The push for us to work with the membranes is because of this: The soul of things are at risk.
All of life is alive and ensouled. And the earth is as well. She has many membranes that surround and protect her interiority, her soul. By tending to and caring for her soul, we support and strengthen her membranes.” ~Membranes of Hope
In this book, Theresa C. Dintino defines this revolutionary concept and offers the reader tools to learn how to engage in this work at any level they wish to participate. There is no better time for this book and the work that flows out of it. Join the movement to care for and repair the membranes at their many levels to restore and maintain health in the lifesystems of the planet.
“Membranes exist at the spiritual, energetic, and physical levels. There are membranes within membranes within membranes. Consider a human body or an ecosystem and all the layers and overlapping membranes held within them. The strength and health of each membrane affect the strength and health of the whole. We need the membranes at each level and scale to be healthy and strong to keep lifeystems healthy. Membranes hold all in integrity and wholeness. Membranes nurture, feed and inform what is within them as the within feeds and supports the membranes.” ~Membranes of Hope
Theresa C. Dintino is the author of eight books and serves as a guide and spiritual mentor to many. While attempting to reclaim and restore her ancestral medicine lineage, the Italian Strega tradition, Dintino was surprised to be “claimed” by the West African Dagara tradition of stick divination. Honored by this invitation, Dintino pursued it, and in 2011 was initiated into this potent form of divination. Besides her family and daughter, this turned out to be the greatest gift of her life. Stick divination helped Dintino find her way back to her own lineage and enables her to help others find and restore theirs.
This beautiful practice of Dagara stick divination continues to offer countless gifts. In multiple divination sessions, Dintino was taught about the spiritual membranes that protect, nurture, and inform lifesystems. Together with the wedeme (the elemental beings of the wild who facilitate this form of stick divination), the entities of the Dagara cosmology, and her own guides, Dintino was shown this important work.
