I was having a discussion the other day with a friend. We were discussing the Seasons of the year and which one we preferred. I had to have a think about it.

I refer you to the wonderful Sacred Hoop article that I shared – all about the myriad of Shamanic practice and its origins. Go look and share the article then sign up for the quarterly magazine.
