Greeting

The world, and our lives, are burning — a relentless fire.

This is the challenge facing watercarriers, those capable of retrieving the forgotten waters of healing — and returning them to community through authentic ritual.

 

Leadership skill and healing knowledge combine in the art and science of ritual; they are two sides of the same coin. Indivisible by nature. Needed by culture.

The commonly misused term “shaman” refers to these water-carriers who have earned the skills of spirit and soul work. Their connection to the Other World carries the responsibility to become a bridge, activating the knowledge, medicine and powers of healing they earn, for themselves and others. The business of ritual.
What are these mythic waters?
The Waters of Life bless the living to bring life alive.
The Waters of Death  bless the dead to bring spirit alive so remains can be cherished, and the ended, finished.
 
Water carriers know the boundary between the living and the dead. They know how to enlist hungry ghosts into their proper vocation as advisors and ancestors.

Medicine Without an Expiry Date:

Indigenous Remedy for Modern Trouble

Who Is This Work For?

First and foremost, you are working with bringing your own voice more fully into the world—even if it begins scratchily—as a force for change and healing.

 

You've come around, or are coming around, to the understanding that indigenous sensibility is a set of skills we need to learn again to re-enchant the world.

 

You understand healing and leadership starts with the work of fully being ourselves.

 

You are interested in animism, but perhaps haven't found anything in-depth that has caught your passion.

Possibly you've attended attempts at ritual that don't quite achieve the requirements for full aliveness, for wild grief and wild praise, for depth of soul. 
Perhaps you are ready (or not ready!) for the next initiatory step on your journey.
Maybe you are seeing the issue of Eldership, no matter your physical age, as requiring education.
 
I thrive on working with open-minded, curious, feeling individuals, and am known for drawing expression out.
 
I love gathering a diversity of ages, genders, cultures, backgrounds, and I build appreciation for diversity well.
My passion is mentoring people in reclaiming their own indigenousity toward rewilding modernity.
