I am so happy to present this book to you at this time. A time where hope is needed and a way forward is longed for. I hope this is one of the possible ways to move forward creating the future we wish to live.
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.”
Strega Tree is proud and pleased to highlight a new diviner in our community: Amy Tanzman Palmer. Amy is a powerful medicine woman, a delightful human and a gift to our circle.
Amy was first introduced to the Dagara through a Kontomble voice divination in 2013. That profound experience changed the trajectory of her life and she eventually found herself walking the path to becoming a diviner herself.
This is a guided visualization and meditation to commune with the soul of the planet and receive a message from Her.
This is the second free download offering from Strega Tree Apothecary to anyone who needs or wants it at this time. We offer it in the spirit of nurturing and rest but also for Gaia, the Earth, that we may endeavor to listen to her and commune with her soul.
No one, but no one, knows place, land, water, Earth, trees or even humans, better than the elemental beings. The degree to which active and tended to relationships with the elemental beings has become such an “out there,” weird, and forgotten idea, displays the degree of importance they actually have to the medicine work and spiritual practices of this planet.
On planet Earth, if you want to be a medicine worker, you must have a relationship to the elemental beings of place and Time. This bond was broken, destroyed and lost so long ago because it was the only way to remove us from our medicine, obstruct our power.
But the elemental beings never forgot. They waited and they watched and they recorded and they hid and they planned and they prepared…when will those who can hear us return? Where are our humans?
They have been trivialized, and they have been demonized. Most humans are terrified of this relationship. And yet they also feel the inherent truth of it. And that terrifies them even more.
In the book Warrior Woman, by Maxine Hong Kingston, I found one of the most compelling descriptions of dragons I have yet come upon in a book. It was an exciting find for me and I wish to share it here.
Dragons are one of the unknowable knowables. If someone tells you they know about dragons, be skeptical, because they are a mystery and must remain that way. The more you think you know them, the less you understand them. It is like wiping up oil with oil, all you get is more oil.
