A Message From Quiet Thunder
Dear Sisters and Brothers: Our new land, Suma Sil, is very inspiring. Walking the land reveals a generous variety of plant life. Ancient oaks and manzanita populate the Grey Pine Belt. The pioneer species of the now-rusty shrub Deerweed, that has come in after fire, fixes nitrogen in the soil for other plants to come in time.
Suma Sil means Health and Abundance. Let's commit to bringing Wellness to the Long Dance, our Lodges and our life. Here is a chart that presents herbal medicine in the context of our Lodges for you to incorporate. Page two gives a peek into the use of the herbs. I'd like to call your attention to Suma, a plant from the Amazon rainforest that qualifies as an adaptogen. This means that it is balancing in both over-active and under-functioning states. Food is Medicine! With love and light, from Quiet Thunder
Vision Quest 2021
The Vision Quest is for those seeking profound depths of healing and awakening, discovery of personal truth, sovereignty, and empowerment at a soul level. This is a rite of passage, an "ordeal" experience that helps the small self to die away unto the emergence of one's authentic being that is encoded with your original Knowing and heart's Vision.
We will be holding Vision Quest on May 26th-30th 2021
There are 10 slots available, if more are interested than we will open a second date.
All that will quest must take Hua's Empowerment through Ritual and Ceremony class first. The next class is October 25th & 26th
If you are called to this, please contact Hua at 805-481-0892
Brother's Dance it's time! Let's do this!
After the resounding success of our 30th Long Dance, and the purchase of our homeland, we are looking to develop our new ceremony for the Brothers! After years of contemplation, we are now in a time that we can. Our community wants to support the Brothers in a Summer Solstice Ceremony.
