Seasoned Greetings!

I have been remiss in writing blogums during the past five months during which Jill and I have been immersed in our teaching schedule as well as work on our farm… and I have also been involved with writing an ongoing series of essays that are regularly posted under Shaman Wisdom. The current series is focused upon the New Mysteries. Read more

Rain-Making And The 'New Mysteries' Reemerging In Our Times

Last weekend, at a two hour mini-workshop with a small group in Kona focused on ancestors, we happened to mention the previous event where the group had been successful in encouraging the rain. The islands are still in an exceptional drought, and as we discussed the problem, we brought up that success story and lo and behold, it began to sprinkle. The sprinkles turned into a soaker that evening so I think we’re on to something.Read more

On The Trail

Topics:  

Jill and I are currently on the trail teaching workshops on the US mainland—a Visionseeker level 2 in Sonoma, California two weeks ago, followed by a book signing for 80 people in Portland, Oregon at the New Renaissance Book Shop, followed by a Visionseeker level 1 workshop at Breitenbush Hot Springs Resort and Conference Center last week among the great trees in the Oregon mountains where we had snow as well as contact with those gentle mountain spirits who reside there.

It's at places like this that we discover with absolute certainty that magic is real.Read more

Rain - Making

On Saturday afternoon, March 6, 2010, I scheduled a book signing followed by a mini-workshop at a local bookstore called Kona Stories here in Kainaliu (in south Kona.) This event occurred in response to the release of my new literary endeavor—Awakening to the Spirit World—co-authored with my old friend and shamanic colleague Sandra Ingerman. Read more

When Elders Meet - In Rain or Shine

As I gather my thoughts this bright tropical morning, allow me to share that it has been very dry here in South Kona this year due to an El Nino climatic event warming the ocean… the same event that is slamming the mainland with torrential rains in the West and massive snowfalls in the Midwest and East.

And here on Hawai’i Island?? We are all hoping that the Hawaiian healing god Lono—the keeper of the winds and the bringer of the rains (and the god of agriculture)—will step forward and bless this island with moisture. Read more

Distant Healing Work For The People Of Haiti

This past weekend (Jan 15-17), I led a weekend workshop on Maui for 22 souls. While drumming for the group, I continually made short shamanic journeys into the dream aspect of Haiti, during which I connected with the Vodou gods (the loa) specifically with Barron, the lord of the cemetaries; Grand-bois, the healing god; La Sirene, the Haitian version of Yemaya the queen of the seas; Erzulie, the goddess of love; and Papa-legba, the gate keeper, to facilitate and help alleviate the suffering of the dead, as well as the living.Read more

An Encounter With a Jinn (Genie) In Egypt

Topics:  

Last Sunday (Jan. 3, 2010) I gave a talk to the New Thought Church in Kealakekua (on Hawaii Island) about something extraordinary that happened to me recently in Egypt.

Our travel group was exploring a large mortuary temple called Medinet Habu near the Valley of the Kings on December 10 when two of my friends, Lorenzo and Coyote (aka Lawrence and Barry), told me they had gotten a huge energy surge in a small shrine near the entrance of the complex.
