Fall, 2015, with Earth Peoples United, Tat Erick González and Nan Heddie

No sooner did we return from a retreat and council in the beloved Patziapa Center in Guatemala did we receive another invitation to continue the conversation around Gratitude in Santa Ynez, Calif. with our relations, Sweet Medicine Nation, Tata Pedro, sister Kirana, and the Earth Peoples United Family. You can see little baby Ixchel was still on her way in these photos.

March, 2009, Renewing the Sacred Inipi

We had a beautiful day harvesting willow and building our Church with the help of a wonderful crew of volunteers, all under the guidance of our Grandmother Jade Willow Heart.  This was an extraordinary learning experience, followed by a special sacred pipe ceremony offered by Grandmother Standing Woman. 


 




June, 2009, Grandmother Initiation Ceremony Celebration
       
In the not to distant past, the family, as a unit, was necessary for survival.  The work was shared.  Everyone had a particular function.We are beginning to look back to the old ways of respecting  the aged ones.There is a certain sense of awe surrounding the Grandmother.  She’s usually the first to awaken in the morning.  She starts coffee or tea, waters the plants, or starts a load of wash before the rest of the household is awake.  Her prayers, be they spoken or in her heart, are sent in the silence of the early morning hours. 4 am is Grandmother time. She instructed the little ones in the ways to walk the good path through her meditations, prayers, and songs.
