One of the amazing gifts of tending to the Dagara lineage is that its tools and listening technologies are allowing our community to tap into the wisdom of this land that we live on. This land in California is vastly different from Africa, so it would make sense that a new language might develop along with some different shrines to the beings of this land. We have been nudged, ever onward by our guides to begin the journey of connecting to a spirit elder of the First people of the land here.

The Strega Tree team has worked through divination with the wedeme and kontomble to reveal multitudes of stories of early collaborations with the elemental realm and has been gifted with a fabulous new technology that is to be called the Inner Journey Board. It took 2 years to listen for all of the components and to travel all over the Bay area, climbing mountains, seeking out waterways and inviting our tree allies to collect the medicines called for to recalibrate our connection to the World Tree.
