To find the heart of any home, the place where joy is born, where people feel nurtured and healed, nourished and comforted, look no further than the sacred kitchen.
Not being much of a cook, I never had much appreciation for kitchens. Living alone, I usually only have to cook for myself and always keep it simple.
When I attended Native American gatherings where women were typically involved in food preparation, I always demurred and preferred physical outdoor labor such as chopping wood and carrying water.
But that all changed after a profound experience I had while attending a Sun Dance ceremony in the southwestern U.S. some years ago.
Prior to the actual ceremony beginning, there were both Caucasians and Native Americans in attendance. The intercessor [leader] was a Native American who I knew as a qualified, experienced elder.
A disagreement had arisen in the camp because several of the Native men did not want Caucasians present, and did not want to follow the instructions of the leader, who they had ceremonially asked to conduct the ceremony.
That was an unfortunate situation, because when an elder is asked to conduct a ceremony the best way they know how, the protocol is that they are respected and the parameters they set up are to be followed. Not this time, however.

I think we’d all like to know a prayer to manifest our heart’s desire. But if you’re like me, you may have found that sometimes your prayers are answered and other times they aren’t. Particularly if you pray for money.
So what’s the secret to a successful prayer?
My teacher Bear Heart taught me a prayer for money many years ago. The prayer isn’t so much how to pray for money as how to pray to make your living doing what you love.
It works. But you have to be clear that it’s what you want.
Here’s how the teaching came about: While I was working on writing The Wind Is My Mother, I had a full time job in a law firm.
It was a good job, and I liked it, but it didn’t make my heart sing. Working on The Wind Is My Mother is what made my heart sing.
Being highly observant and more than a little bit psychic, Bear Heart knew I loved the writing process much more than my law firm job. So he taught me how to pray to be able to make my living as a writer.
I’m really excited to tell you that my new meditation course, Meditations on the Natural World, is now available.
Meditation can help anyone struggling with:
- Stress and anxiety
- Health issues
- And much more
Having taught meditation for years, I’ve learned that most people who have struggled with meditation just need to:
- Find the technique that’s the right fit for them [there are many ways to meditate],
- Manage to find the time [it takes less than you’d think], and
- Learn how to create the habit [in this course, you will actually learn how to create any good habit]
