“someday we will forget the hardship, and the pain its cause us; we will realize, hurt is not the end. lessons appear to teach us strength, we learn happiness is an inside job and to cure our insanity we must not fear what is to come, but believe in what we've been taught.” ― Nikki Rowe, Once a Girl, Now a Woman #mountainmedicine#sacredEdge#fierce#dance#art#afonart#walkerafonart
Hi, how is your magic today? Are you letting it live in the world or are you afraid people may not understand it so you hold it close. Well know this, we need it. You living your life authentically doesn’t make us doubt our own paths, your expansion doesn’t make us smaller, it inspires us to do the same. So please share your vibrant, wild magic with us. This world is better with you and that heart of yours in it. - sincerely, a love note- #lovenote#sunsetsky#mountainmedicine#wildmagic#youareloved
Did you know that the pine tree can help us alleviate our dark moods? It is also good if you suffer from guilt, and if you have a hard time being satisfied with your achievements. A renewal of energy can be obtained by sitting under a pine tree. Maybe not when they are covered in snow though! 😉❄️
Put a pine cone on your altar to ward off evil influences. Carry pine cones to increase fertility and have a vigorous old age. Floor washes with pine oil cleanse a space of negativity and ward off illness. Throw pine needles into winter fires for protection, and place pine branches over the bed to keep sickness away, or over the main door of your house to ensure continuous joy within.
So many medicinal benefits too-an infusion of the pine needles makes an inhalant for relieving congestion. Pine needle tea can aid with healing the bladder, urinary tract, and kidney problems. The needles and shoots are rich in Vitamin A and C. Use the cones and needles in a bath for breathing disorders, skin complaints, and rheumatic pain. It has antiseptic, antiviral, bactericidal, deodorant & diuretic properties.
The pine reminded the ancient peoples of the importance of taking the overview, encouraging objectivity and farsightedness. Pine is a symbol of the elevated mind and the birth of the Spiritual Warrior!
“the light makes no sense without the dark. it needs the dark to have strength.” the problem is not that there is dark, the problem is that we seek only light. one can’t exist without the other. so we are infinitely seeking a truth that does not exist. yielding a mind, a body, and a life that is not at ease.

First off, shout out to @illegalpetes for hooking musicians up with FREE dank burritos. One of the coolest things I've heard of by far, cheers!
Sitting at a bar drinking a 5$ margarita waiting to catch the light rail to the airport. Dallas tonite for a taste of Tejas before a week back home. (45$ flight to Dallas/ night with friends/and 10$ megabus to Memphis next day > 200$ flight)
I wanna take this moment to give a shout out to my good buddy @fivestringsattached for housing me, getting me to gigs, lending his p.a. and musicianship to my gigs -- thanks so much friend!
So great to see some old friends and mountains (another old friend) to kick off 2018. Last month my glass felt half empty, but now I feel full (burritos?!) Here's to looking forward to a relaxing week full of gigs and friends in Memphis, a send off by some of my favorite humans @jeanneenroute in Dallas, and the next bend in the road in Arizona afterwards. 200 gigs this year. The road is teaching me things beyond comprehension.
Earlier this season, we partnered with @PackforaPurpose so that when guests come they can support the work of Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service. It's wonderful to see things starting to roll in! ⠀
Elderberry Erry'day // How's your immune system holding up so far this winter, friends? Do you need some herbal support? I've got your back! Note to those of you waiting on packages : they're shipping tomorrow! ❤️#mountainmedicine
We're finally waking up y'all. Get #backtobasics , do your research, ask your elders what remedies they used for common ailments. The world we live in is unstable. Learn to heal yourself and your family with what you have growing around you.
Closing time @snowkingmountain! I'm loving being a volunteer SkiPatroller... even in the rain! It's a fun meld of wilderness and backcountry medicine requiring some improvisation, but I can see @tetonhospital from the chairlifts!
Patience and Easy Flow will always be better than Struggle and Hustle.
We've been taught to think until it hurts, work until we stumble and to push through it because "Mind over Matter"
How has that been working out?? Numb.
It is time to start following your joy! 🤸♀️🤾♂️🤸♀️ The universe has your back. ✨🎉🎇🎈
