The songs you opened with and invited us to sing throughout were very simple yet so powerful, especially because they came to you in dreams. I felt the whole circle entrain each time.
Your invitation to “put down the pen…” and be open to receive the oral tradition was such a relief. I could feel the information in my body as it was spoken! You transmitted some powerful and important wisdom that spoke to each one of us, especially tapping into our ancestors and honoring and working with them. Thank you for being your beautiful confident self, a true wisdom keeper. I always think of you as “She Who Brings the Light.”
