The healing power of nature...

The land has held me as I danced in celebration, sat by Fire to receive guidance, connected with my brothers and sisters in community, worked through conflict, and deepened my love for my fellow Firekeepers as we walked this path together. My last visit was again in winter as the land and river held us beautifully for our Ukalai women’s work. And I will be there again twice this year to continue these experiences that feed me and bring value to my life, and that become memories as part of the felt-sense of the place.

I find my connection with Blue Deer like any meaningful relationship that deepens over time. I have come to feel at home there, discovering a sense of belonging. I have been so grateful to the staff that welcomes and supports the work taking place. I leave feeling restored in a way that doesn’t need words.
