Thanksgiving - Controversy and Gratitude

Uncategorized Nov 24, 2021

November 25, 2021 is a holiday in the USA called Thanksgiving. On this day people in the US celebrate what is taught in elementary schools around the country as peaceful and caring relationship between the newly arrived colonist from England (Pilgrims) and the local Native American tribes. Children learn that the arrivals to the “New World” were struggling to adapt to the environment and Native Americans showed them how to grow gardens and harvest from the land. The abundance gained from this relationship was celebrated with a feast – which is why a feast is still the focus of this holiday.

 

But, as positive as the basis of this holiday is presented to children – the true history is much more complex and controversial. The mainstream education on the history of the United States is continually being revealed to be “whitewash”. The conflicts, betrayals, abuses, extractive practices, and outright genocide are not acknowledged – which...

Vision Quest Report 2021 Part 3 – The Animal Nations Message

Uncategorized Oct 28, 2021

This is the final message that I can share from my Vision Quest this year.

 

Each Vision Quest for many years, I’ve been visited by a spiritual entity that I call the collective consciousness of the animal nations. This spiritual energy reveals itself in the quest as a shimmering mist that takes on shapes of various animals and delivers a message to be shared with the people.

 

This year’s message revealed future changes coming to the natural world and provided guidance to the people

 

The first part of the message revealed that many people around the world need to continue to take responsibility for tending the region they reside in. People working with the Sacred Tools should continue to pray for the environment and all the natural beings who live there – creating “safe spaces” for both the local and migratory animals. Through prayer, attentiveness and deep connection – people will be guided as to how to tend the natural (and...

Bison Project and Land Update Fall 2021

Uncategorized Oct 13, 2021

We have some exciting news regarding our base of operations in South Dakota USA. An additional 31.6 acres of land that is directly adjacent to our current property has come available to purchase. Before the 1970s this land was originally part of the location that currently supports the Bison Project and the in-person camps provided by HMS in the Black Hills. It has been held in a family trust and has never been available until now. Due to several factors including the opportunity to expand our bison herd, the possibility to hold larger teaching camps and ceremonies, and the protection of the ecology in a bigger way, we have decided to purchase this land!

 

 

After a few weeks of going back and forth with the current landowners, we have settled on a price which is reasonable – especially considering the current market in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The land needs tending, fencing and water access to make it viable for the bison herd and the camps which was...

Vision Quest Report 2021 Part 2 – "No Charging for Ceremony"

Uncategorized Oct 03, 2021

After the 4 days of purification, I was finally ready to enter the sacred Vision Quest. My mind was finally clear from all the cluttered stories that had been knocking around in my head. My heart was at peace and not caught in the swings of emotions – and for the first time is a long while I felt robust joy from the teaching of humor that was recently revealed. My body felt strong and limber after detoxifying over the past four days. The voice of my spirit was louder and clearer than it had been before. Now I was ready to quest.

 

The Lineage Vision Quest that I go on each year is ultimately a part of my responsibility to be of service. While many people might Vision Quest for personal reasons, such as for “power or growth”, there comes a point in the spiritual learning journey that you realize true power is only accessible by being in service – by being a “Helper” to the Powers of Creation. The Vision Quest is a way to connect to actual...

Vision Quest Report 2021 Part 1 – The Teachings of Humor

Uncategorized Sep 23, 2021

As many of you know, each year I do an overnight (or longer) lineage Vision Quest. This year I completed the quest on September 2nd after going through four days of purification rituals. As part of my responsibility to teach, lead, and be a “Helper” of creation I must enter deep communion with the Powers of Creation and the Great Mystery – asking for guidance, support, and healing for all.

 

During the four days of purification leading up to the quest there were many auspicious occurrences and deep insights. The smoke from massive fires burning along the west coast and Rocky Mountains of North America clouded the sky and dimmed the daylight at my quest location. On the third day of purification the mid-day skies turned dark orange and the evening crickets began to sing in the eerily still air. The world seemed to stand still for a few hours – conveying the message that the imbalances in nature are worsening and need our prayers and actions. In my mind I...

The Bison Project - Male and Female Bison

Uncategorized Jul 18, 2021
 

One question we often get asked is how to tell the difference between the male and female bison. When first encountering a bison herd it might be difficult to tell the differences, but with a little bit of knowledge and observation, you will find it easy to tell them apart (most of the time). Below are some of more easily observed unique features of the male and female bison.

 

 

Size/Weight: Adult male American Bison can weight up to 2,000 pounds, which sets them at the largest animal in North America. An adult female bison is typically only half as heavy. Bison tended in ranches can exceed these weights with food supplements.

 

 

Sex Organs: Male bison have a tuft of hair on their belly which indicate the penile shaft.

 

 

Horn Shape/Size: In adult males have horns that are wide, stand straight up and are thicker than females. The female horn is slenderer (compared to the males) and have an inward curve.

 

These...

Lineage Vision Quest Part 7 - Integrating the Vision

Uncategorized Jul 07, 2021

Once the set duration of the quest has been accomplished, the quester is often retrieved by the person facilitating the quest. The quester is brought back to the village and ceremonially released from the quest. This typically involves a gentle purification ceremony and specific songs. During this final step in the Vision Quest, the quester shares about their experience during the quest with the facilitator of the ceremony. This is opportunity for the facilitator to support the lessons of the quest and the re-integration of the quester. 

 

After the completion of this final stage of the Vision Quest, the quester is welcomed back by the community.  Often this first occurs by the community feeding the quester.  During this stage the quester may or may not their story with those that are present. This is completely up to the quester to decide. 

 

Later, after rest and recuperation, the quester may have personal conversations and share the events that...
