“Make space for the miraculous, make space for grace—these energies show up constantly in our lives. To behold them is to bear witness to them. To celebrate them. That’s an infectious and noble position to take. Difficult situations require sustained beholding.”
In times of trouble and uncertainty, it can be hard not to get discouraged or left with an empty-bag feeling. Just as pandemic fears seem to be easing up, we wake up to news of war and extreme polarization. At the same time, we have personal responsibilities to show up for our families and friends, work, and just getting through the day.
This is a good moment to connect with awareness, to reflect, and to find peace in presence. Circles of Friends who focus energy for positive intention, compassion, and support for one another can be a powerful way to create the shift. At Feathered Pipe Ranch, we have long celebrated the power of the circle and ceremony, and especially of women’s circles.
This week, we have the pleasure of joining with two incredible women—Donna Eden and Brooke Medicine Eagle—who both formed an integral part of my mom’s (India Supera) circle of female friends, led workshops at Feathered Pipe Ranch, and have devoted their lives to creating the energetic connections that clear the way for positive change. (Please also check out the work of Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen, a dear friend and promoter of the women’s circle.)
The Dandelion Effect Podcast
Donna Eden, pioneer in the field of Energy Medicine, joins Andy on the Dandelion Effect Podcast. Donna has taught tens of thousands of people all over the world how to engage with the healing and restorative power of their own energies, and her time teaching at the Feathered Pipe Ranch played an instrumental role in catapulting her career.
Her personal story is fascinating and inspiring, and yet, she believes that each one of us is born being able to see energy and that it’s a tool that lies dormant if it’s not used. Throughout her career, she’s seen over and over again that we all have the capacity to tune into energy—what she calls “The Language of the World”—and use it for experiencing mental clarity, physical vitality and joy. Tune in for Self-Healing With Energy Medicine.
Please also enjoy our guest article by long-time friend and lover of the Earth, Brooke Medicine Eagle. Brooke has taught many workshops at the Ranch through the years with other female luminaries. Her fierce and peaceful presence to the challenges that we face as an interconnected family of beings is such an inspiration in these times.
With gratitude for our circle of friends,
Executive Director of Feathered Pipe Foundation
