How can we help you?
Would you like to consult for a natural and village intelligent assist with a personal, relational, livelihood or community opportunity that intrigues you or is perhaps wrapped in a challenge?
This consulting is meant to make this kind of help brief, potent and accessible to all. It is barefoot social working, helping society heal and transform from the roots of the grass.
For practical expedience, please take a few moments to briefly describe whatever it is that you seek assistance with and your central question(s) to start the process.
Reciprocity is in nature’s economy for consults, the amount and nature of which is negotiated on a case by case basis.
Our legs don’t get stronger when we’re walking downhill.Sheila Simes released me from a self-pity phase during a really tough time in my life with these words. She and I were neighbours, sharing the work of caring for those we cared for and keeping each other sane and amused. We walked 5k at 6 am every morning in every weather for a year or so. At the time she was 65, I in my early 40’s. It was an enriching relationship for both of us. Sheila is a Great-Grandmother Grandmother Mother Daughter. She is my sister and elder, my friend.
“You want to help the world, Patti, I see that. But what are you in such a rush for? You are a person who likes doing. If you solve the world’s problems next week, then what will there be left for you to do?”Victor Munroe was an elder from the Yellow Quill First Nation. He was a casualty of the war in the plane in many ways and a true healer in return. He lived a life of reflecting and sense-making in a practical beauty way. He is now Ancestor too soon because the spiritual war had its way with his light until the spiritual war put it out. He was an extraordinary power for love. I pledge to remember that kind of love and Victor’s entirely humble strength to temper my fire for a peaceful but exciting journey of beauty returning for all that are alive.
