Born a natural mystic, the life of the soul has always held my rapt attention. It is the home of all truth and the greatest beauty of the phenomenon of living for me, and it is this realm into which we will journey in these windows of time together. Story, song, and wisdom teaching will be the terrain of our exploration here. The cultivation of consciousness, the deepening of wisdom, and the full embodiment of soul is our focus. Attention and curiosity are our gear.
Dive in. Together we will explore the Art of Soulful Living.
This is a strange world, and this is one of the strangest times that many of us have experienced so far. In this moment it can feel hard, impossible even, to access a sense of possibility in regards to the dream that we hold for a more beautiful world for all Life and Beings. But I believe this is a moment in which the dream can be most richly forged, and the roots of it made strong in inhospitable soil, giving it extraordinary fortitude, longevity and potency.
I believe that the dreamer and visionary within us is a living element Life's very own dream to arrange itself into a greater order of beauty, and that our lives are our opportunity to participate in and contribute to the furtherance of that dream for the benefit of all to whatever degree we are inspired and able to do so.
This is the view that gives me ground and renews my faith when it seems that there's no way to the beauty that I know in my bones is ready to be born. This and broadening my awareness out into the scope of time and realizing that it's true: I am my ancestors wildest dream. And I can dream wildly for my descendants and then use my life to make the way for that wild dream to come true for them.
Join me, and let us together explore the territory of Holding the Dream of What's Possible for the World.
Features the song Gaias Child from my new album Fertile Darkness, avaiable at https://maitreyawolf.bandcamp.com/
At the heart of the coronavirus pandemic shutdown of society is an initiatory possibility. This could be a moment where everything changes for the better if we go all the way down to the bottom of our beings and harvest the wisdom awaiting our attention there. But though a moment may have initiatory possibility written into it, initiation is not assured: wether or not we are initiated has everything to do with how we relate to the opportunity, how we navigate the moment.
Let's go there. Let's go all the way down and through the gates, surrendering a piece of false regalia at each one so that we can come into deep communion with the Truth of our Being, claim our true regalia as we walk back through the gates, and emerge as embodied wisdom ready to co-create a life-giving and beautiful world in which all can thrive and flourish.
Includes the song Wild Joy, the first single from my upcoming album Fertile Darkness, which is a feast in song of the fruits of my own initiation. Pre-order your copy of Fertile Darkness here to receive Wild Joy as a pre-release gift (album drops May 6th):
Today is "Earth Day". In this time of the pandemic, when society has finally come to a halt long enough for us to look around and take a breath, let's reflect on the world that we want to create as we move forward into the new instead of defaulting back to the status quo that is so painful, destructive, and empty in so many ways. Let's name our true feelings and difficulties with society so that we can liberate the full spectrum of our love and thereby imagine a greater collective experience for ourselves, one in which all life benefits, not just the .001% at the expense of absolutely everything else.
And above all things, let's get closer to Earth and LISTEN for what she is feeling, wanting, and needing as we move forward. Let's listen for our part of the story and when it becomes clear lets embody that station as our gift to life.
Here we are in the midst of the most powerful disruption to our collective reality that most of us have ever seen. While the internet explodes with activity transferred out of the public arena to the digital realms, a great opportunity is waving a quiet flag, wondering if we will notice that there is an incredible opening in the field of collective reality that can be worked with on a magical level to support the flourishing of a more beautiful world for all beings.
In this episode I present a very bare bones introduction to the practice of meditation. Meditation is one of the most powerful tools we have for integrating the whole of our being into activated brilliance and peaceful humanity. In this strange...
Ballast is the term for the weight that sits in the bottom of a water-going vessel to give it what I call "roots in a moving field." In this time of upheaval and uncertainty, with our daily world in a state of utter disruption and uncertainty, I...
In this episode we touch briefly on the topic of initiation and then dive fully into an exploration of the concept of "Integrating the Underworld", a practice of moving towards our darkness with curiosity, compassion, and welcoming so as to harness its...
What is belonging? How is that feeling and that experience reached and grounded when we live in a world where most people are descendants of devastated cultures living in lands that are either occupied or upon which they are newcomers? In this episode...
Forgiveness is an incredibly important thing in our lives, but what is it, really? Where does it come from? How does it work? How does it happen? These questions will spur us on in our exploratory voyage through the territory of forgiveness.
In this episode we will explore the topic of conflict and the many opportunities for growth and energetic refinement inherent in any conflict. We will also touch on the subject of "predictable consequences", a way of framing experiences that I have found helpful in managing the charge I can get around something that, when I explore it a little more deeply, I could have seen coming.
