Calling the Keepers
Throughout 2022 I am facilitating six bi-monthly webinars, whenever I sense a cresting wave of energy within the Earth.
“Call the Keepers” is a phrase I initially heard in meditation; it later echoed in a powerful dream. The complete message was “Call the Keepers... there are many. Help them move past their fear into their Great Animal Hearts.” Based on this inner guidance, I invited anyone who resonated with this invitation to gather for the first gathering in February to contemplate what being a Keeper means, for the well-being of humanity and the Earth. Who is a Keeper? To put it simply — anyone who is dedicated to serving Life.
On May 6th, I held our second gathering with two wonderful wise-women, Betsy Perluss, Ph.D. and Cassandra Leoncini, exploring the theme, Dancing in the Sanctuary of the Unknown. With their permission, here is an excerpt from our three-way conversation.
Betsy Perluss, PhD. is a psychotherapist with a background in eco and depth psychologies. She teaches ecopsychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute; from 2001-2012, she was a professor of counselling at California State University. A seasoned wilderness rites of passage guide with the School of Lost Borders, Betsy aspires to live a life informed by the wisdom of the land, the pan-cultural ceremony, and the mystery of initiatory rites. She currently lives on the unceded territory of the Nisenan along the Bear River, in the wild and raucous oak forested foothills of the Sierra Nevada. www.BetsyPerluss.com
Cassandra Leoncini has traveled her life as a seeker and a keeper. Exploring the more than human world and the rivers of mythos, she’s been supported by the book business, symbolic anthropology and interpretive archaeology. She’s a published writer with deep roots in archetypal astrological counselling. She continues to gather many circles, facilitating experiential rites of passage and annual transformational writing retreats. www.twoeaglesastrology.com/cassandra
Our Third Keepers Gathering will feature Elinor Dickson, co-author of Dancing in the Flames, The Dark Goddess in the Transformation of Consciousness with Marion Woodman later in June. Date TBA.
