Calling In The 4 Directions

Calling In The 4 Directions

I call the East, the rising sun, and new beginnings. I call the winged ones and the element of air. I honor the four winds and the realm of the mind. I honor the trees of the east and their roots, branches and trunks. I choose to tell the truth without blame or judgment.”

I  call the South, the midday sun, and creativity. I call the element of fire and the realm of the spirit. I honor fertility, passion, and activity. I honor the land animals and insects. I honor the trees of the south and their roots, branches and trunks. I choose to show up and be present.”

I call the West, the setting sun, and transformation. I call the element of water and the realm of the heart. I honor the animals and plants that live in water. I honor flow and receptivity. I honor the trees of the west and their roots, branches and trunks. I choose to pay attention to what has heart and meaning.”

I call the North, the eclipsed sun and the stillness between breaths. I call the element of earth and the realm of the body. I honor rocks, minerals, and crystals. I honor the trees of the north and their roots, branches and trunks. I choose to be open, not attached, to outcome.

The Leader’s Invocation

The Leader’s Invocation

Cosmic Prayer for a Leader

I have seen that the accepting of Cosmic Responsibility

is the equating of my mortal self

with the power of wind and lightning

and of the morning dew

and of the seas and storms

and of the wolf song

and of stars and comets and of an autumn leaf

and of suns and solar winds.

It is the accepting of my Cosmic Power, my Godhead.

Only thus may I live a Life

that has caught the Essence, the Truth,

and will stand into eternity.

Only through total acceptance and surrender to the awesome scope of Cosmic Responsibility,

Only thus may I know that I have come to God and it is me.

The Healer’s Invocation

The Healer’s Invocation

The Healer’s Prayer

In healing I walk…


With healing before me I walk
With healing behind me I walk
With healing above me I walk
With healing around me I walk

In healing all day long may I walk.
Through the returning seasons, may I walk.
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
With dew about my feet, may I walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of healing, lively, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of healing, living again, may I walk.
My words will be healing.

The Forest of Dandaka Tree Calendar

The Forest of Dandaka Tree Calendar

The Forest of Dandaka Tree Calendar is a moon based calendar with the months named after trees. Below are the dates and also the “Days Out of Balance” which are traditional holidays with a twist in The Crystalline Power of Trees.

This is roughly based on a Celtic Tree Calendar. A traditional Celtic moon calendar information can be seen here: https://www.thoughtco.com/celtic-tree-months-2562403. I have changed some of the trees to better reflect Lan’s journey.

The dates change slightly as the New Moons change. Below the dates are based on the New Moons for 2018. This calendar starts on the first new moon closest to the Winter Solstice.

Stay tune for a downloadable calendar with new moon, full moon, mercury retrograde info and more for 2018!
