Soul Work

Are we suppose to know when our struggles will end? No… we must trust that the process of life is filled with both negative and positive, happy and sad, struggle and loss, and flow and freedom. We all have our good and bad days, but when life gives us extra challenges, so much that we must reach…

Marzanna – Autumn and Winter Goddess, The Season of Night

Mesolithic Shamans and Dreamers

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – More and more on earth, our pre-history grandmothers who ruled the shamanic cultures are being revealed with more ancient artifacts surfacing.
