Message for the New Year

audio message

Painted Cave, Santa Barbara, CA

Earth, when I am about to die
I lean upon you.
Earth, while I am alive,
I depend upon you.

Ashanti prayer in honor of the ancestors

My Message for the New Year:

Remembering those who have passed in both peaceful and violent ways. Innocent children taken in a terrible moment and elders acknowledging their time. Ash and grain and sun and rain, one passage blending to another as dawn greets us with an expression we can only guess at. May we choose to courageously rest in our compassionate hearts as we enter this new cycle.
