Resurgent is a term I have chosen to denote rebirth. In ancient times every event was perceived as an aspect of birth, death and rebirth. This is particularly true of ritual problem solving.

Anecdotal: Fagus is Roebuck, Deer and Chipmunk Medicine. As a gatekeeper of ancient wisdom it is entreated for access to ancestral memories and reflective knowledge, enhancing one’s ability to avoid making the same mistakes repeatedly. This is based on the understanding that knowledge sustains the human spirit. Fagus is rendered into ritual bowls as well as snowshoes. The spirit within Fagus is invoked to address spiritual pain related to genetous experiences and broken hearts. Issues such as these can cause attrition or loss of spiritual energy or direction as well as the destruction of personal shields. It is both exorcismal and incarnant for associated endopsychic wounds.
