Who are you? Why are you here? What is your life about, and why have the things that have happened to you happened to you?
What could be more important than this?
We have come to remember who we are, and this is a Sacred Journey. Why? Because the things that have happened to you in your life are not who you are. Your wounds don’t have the right to tell you who you are, or what you can and cannot do. If you listen to their screams or whispers, they will tell you who you are, and you will lose yourself.
In your life things have happened and will happen, and when they do, what will you do? What have you already done? Do you stop living? Loving? Trusting? Shut down or withdraw? Become invisible? Live in pain or suffering?
You step up to do what it is you came here to do, and heal whatever might be preventing that from happening. You learn to rise again, to begin again from wherever you are and to take up the quest to reunite your Soul with the Divine and to know yourself in all things.
You can learn to turn your wounds into places of great Spiritual Power and learn to live the life you were meant to live, and do what it is you came here to do. It has been said that all suffering ceases to be when you can find meaning in it. In Medicine Work, we not only find meaning in it, we transmute it through Spiritual Alchemy into Medicine. Our Medicine, and the Medicine for all life.
Medicine Work is a Way of Life that helps you not only heal, but to live the life you were meant to live. There is no one way to heal, as Creator has provided many healed paths to walk upon.
The world needs you to do what it is that you came here to do, because that is your Medicine, your contribution, your part of the Web of Life. You are important, you are needed, and you are valued.
Creator knew this and that is part of why you were sent here – to give or make your greatest contribution for the betterment of all life.
We need you, Mother Earth needs you, and your life and those you love and care about need you. Take our hand, and let us walk with you on your path to remember who it is you really are in your Divinity.
We can help teach you the Ancient Ways of Healing & Living that have endured since Time Immemorial. Technology has changed, societies have changed, but the human condition endures, and so have the Medicine Workers.
Each of us must Earn The Light for ourselves by our own journey, and if you feel so called, we would like to invite you to take your seat at The Great Council Fire of Healing for your life, and for all life.
