The most successful way for accessing what I call the shamanic realm are long, repetitive walks. It takes a while to develop a shamanic walk. You must walk the same walk with only some slight variation at least four times a week for a couple months before it can get to the point where you can begin to listen. In walking the same path everyday for an extended time, the environment, the way, the rhythm, become second nature so that there is nothing unexpected to worry about, no unknowns to wonder about, allowing you to relax and be deeply present to what is there, without and within.
We spend much of our time listening to the trees.
Strega Tree is a collective of diviners, medicine people, Goddess devotees from many traditions and backgrounds but we spend much of our time out in the wild listening to the trees. The trees are teaching us and guiding us how to walk the path: the path of our ancient ancestors, the path of truth. Many come and all are welcomed. There is much healing offered, many gifts to share.
This time has been foretold: The return of ancient medicine lineages to the planet. This is the time our great-grandparents knew would come, the time they have been waiting for, to return the lineages to the Earth, the ones they tucked away for a time such as this. Who will listen? Who will join?
In September of 2016, Theresa C. Dintino gave a talk at Many Rivers Books and Teas in Sebastopol, CA on her Tree Medicine Trilogy of books. The recording of that event has been made available only recently. We thought we would share it here for anyone that may be interested in listening.
Vivien’s spiritual path began in childhood when she would have conversations with the trees and play with the wind. Her interests led her to pursue a Master’s in Women’s Spirituality and a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Religion.
Vivien has been initiated as both a stick and voice diviner. She is also working on restoring her personal spiritual lineage, which traces back to the Delphic Oracle in Greece, as well as understanding her ancestral connection with the Fae of the British Isles.
In addition to her medicine work, Vivien is also an experienced teacher who has worked in public school, designed and taught a women’s mythology course, given lectures at various religious studies conferences, and is a published writer.
Strega Tree sat down with Vivien and asked her a few questions.
