I am something of a reclusive fuddy-duddy. That isn’t “news” to most of you. What might be news is my fabulous new website created by Green Willow Designs. And step by step it becomes more interactive, and hopefully for you, increasingly more user friendly.
To date I have two blogs well on their way. At the prompting of my incredible Facebook friends, friends who have vastly expanded my knowledge of the world, I created a blog entitled Companion Planting-Bio Diverse Container Gardens. My awareness was drawn to the economic issues wed to greater and greater concern for our beloved Earth. Thanks to my friends I realized that there were many people developing a profound desire to grow their own food and contribute to the health of our planet while doing so. Consequently, I was compelled to write this blog.
Companion plants are plants that enhance the garden environment exponentially. And increased bio diversity triggers robust health within any system. The Companion Planting blog combines the practicality of growing common vegetables, regardless of the space or lack of that you have, with the sophistication of bio diverse wild tangles.
The Compendium for Spirit Handling is the botanical companion to Ancestral Airs. It deals exclusively with the ritual properties of about 420 species of plants as perceived by shamanic hunter-gatherers. There is a great deal of information about the medicinal uses of these plants in Ancestral Airs but I wanted to write a book that also illustrated that at one time we understood illness as a manifestation of spirit. And the practitioners that doctored these illnesses were spirit handlers.
And finally in a few weeks my newest book will be launched as a blog. It is a sequel of sorts to Ancestral Airs. I will reveal the title to you very soon.
I am deeply grateful for the enduring support and encouragement you have extended to me. I will do my best not let you down.
