Moonbeams in a Bucket

                            I celebrated the full moon on Sunday at the playground near my house. Soaring back and forth on a swing. Giggling. Watching her rise gloriously in the night. That morning I had walked a labyrinth with a group of women, holding the intention of seeding the new energy that’s wanting to come into my life. Before entering the labyrinth we wandered in a nearby meadow on a hill with a tremendous view of...

Book Review: Sky Above, Earth Below

I have heard wonderful things about John Milton and the spiritual wilderness experiences he guides through Sacred Passage, so I was very interested in reading his book Sky Above, Earth Below. My understanding is that the book was adapted from a sound recording series. Some of the weaknesses of the book may stem from the fact that it was not originally conceived and organized in written format. It has a feeling of being retrofitted. The first few pages of the book outline Milton’s “twelve...
