The one word that best describes Loretta's and my journey across the USA to visit earth spirituality centers in tribute to her brother John.
I left California fancying myself a marginal farmer and came back realizing that what I have initiated at Dancing TreePeople farm has been amazing. Now, my energies are drawing me to something new and yet unformed.
I am clear that I will not know what is next until I let go of what has been.
We need to put DancingTreePeople farm on the market and set an intention that someone will purchase it who can continue the transformation that was started here. This decision has triggered the next whirlwind. In the weeks to come so much will happen. Yet, I am at peace in the midst of it.
Dancing TreePeople Farm is a special place. It has taught me to take things one step at a time, to be persistent and observant. It has taught me that the universe is on my side, even though my vision might not be how things actually unfold.
It has taught me that each new cycle, each season is an opportunity for abundance and a change to try something new. it has taught me to appreciate and value community and connection.
It has taught me that nature is powerful and fecund.
There will be a great deal of grief in letting go... for so much has taken place here and so much of my life's blood, my time, resources, hopes and dreams have been poured into this farm. This place is special. It is beautiful and alive. It is rich beyond measure.
In the weeks ahead, it is my intention to share the wisdom of Dancing TreePeople Farm and the insights that I will take forward into what is to come.
