Greetings!

I am excited to announce that I will be hosting the 2018 Summer Flora & Fungi Hike on Saturday, July 7th at McConnells Mill State Park in Western Pennsylvania… and, I’d love for you to join us!

Summer is the perfect season to explore Pennsylvania’s land in search of interesting and useful plants, trees, and mushrooms. McConnells Mill State Park — with its deeply-cut gorges, hemlock-lined ravines, whitewater currents, and historical landmarks — is a prime area for summer exploration.

While exploring the Slippery Rock Creek Gorge within the park, we’ll delve into a myriad of fascinating topics related to this season’s flora and fungi, including:

  • Edible and medicinal plants
  • Edible and medicinal mushrooms
  • Summer wildflower identification
  • Tree identification, along with edible and medicinal uses
  • Medicine-making using wild plants and mushrooms
  • Natural history and ecology of the area

… and more!

First New Moon of Summer

By Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Greetings dreamers, healers, artists and moon people, we now enter our  first of “Three Moons of Summer” which begins June 13, 2018 and then the Summer Solstice, Thursday, June 21st(Northern Hemisphere 3:07 am pdt). Our three moons of Spring have completed with six intentions total and I am sure you did your workings to become more aware of your fears even if you didn’t approach them yet. Even a small amount of what you are personally working on with more understanding helps alleviate some stress. Review your last three intentions and full moon release intentions and review the insights you have at the door of the summer moons.

With the solstice, we meet the second half of the season, the “Season of Fire”. For those unfamiliar with my terminology, I work with the way our ancestral past did under grandmothers leadership (long ago), before we…

Communication for Prosperity ~ New Energy with the New Moon in Gemini

By Brana Mijatovic, Ph.D.

Dear all,
This New Moon in Gemini (exact on Wednesday afternoon) is going to be all about communication, ideas and projects.
You will most likely feel a renewed enthusiasm for something you’ve been thinking about for a while.
You may also receive new information or new insights that will help you come up with new projects.
You may notice that it is easier to make plans, organize meetings, and receive cooperation from others.
It may feel like the floodgate of possibilities has finally opened up and you’ll be tempted to check them all out. Being flexible and adaptable as planschange and new ideas come up is the key.
Aquamarine (above) and Blue Tourmaline (the top photo and below) are the top two stones I recommend for this energy.
Nurturing and supportive words will come easy now and everyone will benefit from spending time by the water, as Mercury, an astrological ruler of this New Moon, will be in a Water sign.
If you want to amplify your focus and intuition and maximize the effect of this energy with my New Moon in Gemini meditation, which you’ll listen to every night for two weeks (until the Full Moon), let me know by replying to this email.
Till next time,
stay healthy and happy!
Brana Mijatovic, Ph.D.
