I have been reading and thinking, meditating and journeying, worrying and contemplating about the coronavirus. I have a great deal of curiosity about this circumstance. It appears that there is a crisis…a global crisis. It appears that there is a terrible thing going on. Is this true? What is really happening? One of the things […]

Serenity Medicine

One of the things that I have been wrestling with in my consciousness are the ways that people are seeking to create a “better”world. There is just so much information, explanations and analyzations of how bad the world is and how we have to do this and that to make it better. And not just […]
