Today I began adding another layer to this website. The cultural stories illustrate the theme of Natality through myth, ritual, sign and symbol. I include many images to create a mood, and where possible, I also add a video link or poetry. This layer will lead to another layer – ceremonies to honour The Great Mother of many names and faces who was honoured for millenia before patriarchy attempted (unsuccessfully) to erase her story and image. It is important to remember Her, not in order to re-introduce her in our current time and place, but to understand how a future matriculture can evolve. This is part of disrupting heirarchical thinking and anthropocentrism.
A week ago, we welcomed the arrival of a unique child into our world. Robin gave birth to a baby and thus became a mother, and that meant that Mike, my son, became a father and I became a grandmother (again). All of us are changed forever because Theodore Zeus Falk entered our world. Like all newborns, he is unique. He represents the promise of new beginnings, new inventions, new ideas, new creative expressions. The world will never be the same – just because Theodore arrived on April 8, 2016. Welcome sweet adorable child!
I am delighted to finally update my website. This week I submitted the final report of my Master’s thesis, and I have been celebrating by getting creative on this site. I will be updating the site regularly to add articles and essays. If you find a blank page, you know that new content is coming soon. The first task is to build a foundation, so the introduction, glossary, references and framework will be first tasks. I welcome your comments.
Terra Mandala Meditation Garden is closed for the winter. The garden will re-open in spring with a new theme: The Great Mother.
