The Breath of Gaia

Lana Holmes Earth Wisdom

Blue-skyMy Mother’s voice is a lullaby in my cells.  When I am still, my body feels her breathing.”

This beautiful phrase comes from Terry Tempest Williams book, When Women Were Birds.  One of the most delicious books I have read in a while, it caused me to think about the incredible feeling I get when I lie on my back in an open meadow or in the hammock under the Madrone trees found here in the Santa Cruz mountains of northern California.

Most of all, it is the “state of being” that I have experienced after completing an eight-day guided vision quest.  We humans need to experience slowing down to the rhythm of the earth to fully embrace this amazing living Being we call Mother Earth. Only when we slow down in a natural setting are we able to feel the breath of life.

In love and service to life and all that bring life,

Lana
