My Soul Call
When the Soul wants to experience something,
she throws an image before her
and steps into her own experience.
Many people go to Ireland looking for their roots. I didn’t. I just went on vacation with my dad to see a new country and enjoy some quality father/daughter time. It was all of that. And it changed my life.
For many years my life was filled with our graphic design agency, providing strategic consulting to nonprofit and government organizations, and even teaching at a local college. Environmental sustainability, arts and culture, public parks and public transportation, ending homelessness, and social justice was the focus of all my work. I loved it and was quite settled in it. However my soul wanted a different experience, something she made quite clear during my first visit to Ireland. The ancestors were insistent and persistent, my spiritual teachers were gracious and patient, and the image emerged – the image that is now my life. The call of soul. Sacred communion with the land and landscapes. Sacred communion with ancestral and other world energies.
Now, through my books and writings, sacred journeys and sacred gatherings, it is my honor and privilege to offer sacred encounters for others. To heed the call of soul. To step into sacred communion.
I live in a forest sanctuary nestled near the coastal waters of Washington State, I also spend much of the year at our cottage in west Ireland.
When recently in Ireland I had the opportunity to walk along the River Bóinne with Anthony Murphy. It was a time of deep philosophical sharing. Here is the link.
