I share the soul wisdom, magic and insights of our Ancestors through the ancient art of storytelling and self-counsel works. With the wisdom of everyday unsung heroes and the human condition, we carve a new path. As a philosophical muse of human nature, quantum physics, spirit world and nature, I do not hold to any one particular tradition as one higher truth or one size fits all. Viva la diversity! Even as a young child, I recall being held captivated by the other-worldly magic of indigenous cultures, saints, mystics, shamans and Robert Service's tales of the northern wilderness. As a teen, I found battered old copies of Voltaire's 'Candide', Margaret Caven's 'I Heard the Owl Call My Name' and anything spirit world that my adolescent soul hungered for. At my age, I am a 'been there and done that' post menopause Nana. With all of the hubbub of spiritual gurus in the world, my heroes lean toward those more authentic ideals such as; my spirit world muses who consist of an ancient multi-cultural mystical sisterhood, angel guides, my Mother, Great Grandmother, family and friends. I admire the 13 Grandmothers as well as former social services clients, a medicine woman daughter and son who all live a life less ordinary. There is still so much more to do, share, explore and discover with more self-counsel books, a handful of children’s stories and another novel in the works.
