About me and my journey

 

IMG_5327

It is in the sanctuary of the wilderness that I have fallen in love with Goddess/ Divine Mother, my word for Spirit or Great Mystery. Here I found the support and safety to begin to strip away the layers and layers of old stories and energies stored in my body temple; I discovered a portal into ancient wisdom, into a deeper part of my self and the world.

It is here in Homer, Alaska– a small seaside village on the southern-most tip of the Kenai peninsula– that I learned that the wilderness around and within me has infinite capacity to hold all of who I am. I could at last embrace and integrate those parts of myself I had once split off. This Divine integration has been powerful transmutation medicine.

She has taught me that I can access Her directly and do not need to seek permission or validation via other people. I can claim my own authority; Her authority in me. We all can, this gift of grace belongs to us all.

    I have had the privilege of hiking with Trish and have felt a sisterhood with her from the moment I met her. I have a deep love of Nature and have longed to meet someone who appreciates this feeling as much as I do. Trish has devoted her life to mindful living and being with her reminds me to do the same. Her education and knowledge of the wilderness, animals, and survival skills bring nothing but full trust in her guiding abilities making the hiking experience pure joy. I highly recommend Trish for anyone considering exploring this area of Alaska and all the beauty it has to offer.
