He’s a wisdom keeper, a Norse God from the shamanic tradition of the Indo-Europeans. Lately I’ve been contemplating what it means to live wisely, so getting to know Odin has been a HUGE GIFT!
In most version of the myth Odin hangs himself on the World Tree to attain “runes of wisdom.” After an epic journey to the Underworld he is reborn as a wise healer. He spends the rest of his life devoted to helping others.
People ask me: What led you to this work? I tell them: Cancer. Yep, that’s right. The big C word… I know, it’s unconventional. I’ve received a number of requests recently to talk about my story. I’m honoured (and a bit nervous) to share it with you. Here’s how it happened…
In a few weeks time, I’ll be teaching on the St. Francis of Assisi pilgrimage, hosted by Dancing Spirit Tours. The theme for this year’s pilgrimage is Living Your Purpose. I attended the Assisi pilgrimage last year, and it was one of the highlights of my life. Places are still available this year!
I’ve been re-reading my journal entries from my Assisi pilgrimage last year. Here are some of my reflections on pilgrimage, purpose and following the holy plan for our life.

‘Feeling live’ means experiencing the juiciness of the moment. It means exploring something new, taking time away from the daily grind, and putting yourself in a new environment.

The Syrian Refugee Crisis: It’s Everyone’s Responsibility
As much as I try, this holiday season it’s especially difficult to focus on decorated trees, baking cookies or the traditional winter activities I enjoy.
This year, my thoughts are spread across the world, with the 12 million innocent Syrians who have been displaced from their homes. This year, instead of buying gifts for my loved ones who already have everything they need, I vow to make a difference for a family who strugg
