It has been a month since my last post, and oh how things
Since my last scripture, I
have departed Vancouver Island and am currently touring the
interior of British Columbia.
The first bump in the road was en route to
stop # 1, the Wise Womens’ Festival in Naramata, where I was slated to teach a
Upon reaching Vancouver,
there was mega traffic, (worse than Toronto!)
and as I was inching by I noticed my car’s temperature gauge rising…rising…rising
to what seemed to be an unhealthy level.
I also heard a strange noise coming from the engine.
What to do?
I decided to wait until the traffic cleared to determine my next
An hour later when the congestion
cleared my car seemed to clear as well.
I was praying she would be okay driving on the steep inclines of the
road terrain in what felt like 30 degree weather.
When I stopped for lunch I parked her in the
shade, opened the hood, and gave her some good energy.
After that she was back to normal.
I was glad to have made it to the Wise Womens’ Festival as
it was a beautiful experience. Connection, affirmation, and fullness would
best describe the weekend. I had the
opportunity to receive a sacred chakra Tibetan bowl group sound healing, met
some truly wonderful women, played in the lake, and most importantly received
the most positive, life affirming feedback in regards to my workshop. It was my first time leading a workshop of
this kind, and I was feeling quite anxious beforehand to put it mildly. I ensured a good night’s sleep, and ample time
for meditation and set-up prior to the 8:45 am
start. I set the space with a small
intimate group in mind, yet as the workshop start time approached more and more
people walked into the room expanding our circle to 21! I completely strayed
from my outline, stayed present with the group, and kept within the allotted
time frame. What an expansive
experience?! I truly amazed myself and
was so grateful to receive such heart warming and positive feedback. I am definitely meant to be teaching in one
form or another.
Over the next few weeks my plan is loose.
Currently I am en route to Grand
Forks to stay with a lovely like-minded woman I met at
the festival who lives off grid in the forest and works in the healing arts
Today she is harvesting
seabuckthorn and canning tomatoes…sounds good to me!
My intention over the next few weeks is to
experience conscious freedom both on the inside and out, and stay close to
It seems important for me at this
The weather here is so beautiful,
even though we are approaching the end of September and for that I am grateful.
Wishing everyone a happy and fruitful harvest!
***Update!! I now have photos. The land was magical. All of the
living quarters were made from scrap materials and the designs were
creative and ingenious.
