I find essences very subtly and gently altering, but I wondered if it was possible to experience something much stronger like psychedelics. They never answered my question directly, but several months later my… Continue reading A Gift From Gnomes & Fairies: Mystic Mushroom

What’s in a Land’s Name: Cape Disappointment

Camping at Cape Disappointment on the Washington Coast recently, I was curious about its name. As an earth alchemist, I attune to the imprints that are held within the subtle energy of land, in this case, land memories.

How to Thrive in Chaos

The Columbia River Gorge was formed by cataclysmic flooding and massive earth movements. The flower essences I co-created beginning in 2000 come from the wildflowers that live here and have learned how to thrive in extreme conditions. They are survivors!

Embodiment of Women’s Pleasure with Queen of Hibiscus

  At the urging of Pele, I made a flower essence from different colored blossoms of the beautifully expressive hibiscus flower. I journeyed down to the ocean to infuse the volcanoes and ocean energies into this essence. Last night, I dreamt that the yellow flowers danced in my pelvis. I first made hibiscus essence in… Continue reading Embodiment of Women’s Pleasure with Queen of Hibiscus
