Hello! This blog will represent two paths, which are really the same path. First, it is a path of advocacy and truth based on science and fact to help us better understand this keystone predator we call wolf. Second, it is an invitation for the creation of a community healing circle to better understand the spiritual lessons and wisdom of these beautiful four-legged brothers and sisters. This community is currently located in the McCall, Idaho area, yet we will also address wolf and predator issues of the Northern Rockies and beyond. These creatures are currently caught in the middle of a political battle with their extermination being called for once again by people who understand the value of money over the value of our living planet and its vital ecosystems. The wolves need our voices to ensure their survival. There are many misconceptions about the grey wolves re-introduced to the Northern Rockies, and intentional or not, many false claims have been made in order to put the lives of these creatures at risk for extermination. I encourage you to investigate the truth of these rumors and misconceptions for yourself. The website, www.westernwolves.org is a great place to start.
The spiritual journey is not required to be a wolf advocate, but as I was inspired to create this community through a dream I had, I have committed myself to offer a sacred space to learn more about the spiritual teachings that The Wolf Spirit has to offer. As of right now there is no set agenda on how this will come about. Just like growing from a pup to an adult, we must learn to navigate through the teachings and wisdom to create a strong community. The wolf pack, as well as the "lone wolf", teaches us vital information about community and interdependance. The Wolf is a wonderful teacher of Mother Earth wisdom, and is offering to teach us in it's own way how to connect with earth wisdom and indigenous teachings. In this age of rampant pollution and corruption, remembering the connections we have with Mother Earth is important for our own physical and spiritual survival.
I hope that you will join me in rallying around these beautiful creatures, so that together we may learn the importance of living in balance with our surrounding ecosystems.
