Great Calling: Healing Hearts at Wounded Knee Ending War that the World May Heal

By Jean Fleury

First and foremost is anunciation. I choose this word especially to honor the mysterious, but unmistakeable way the “holy” made itself known in my small life. There assuredly cannot be any greater treasure nor gift than a direct knowing of mystery’s personal and intimate love, radiance, omnipotence, and infinite power. Great, deep, unmistakable, and ever evolving comes this greatest Love. From the foundation of this tender and great relationship, all things become possible. For what seemed like a very long time, I lived in wonder at what my next life purpose might be.

Then, I met Saniel Bonder right after the Continue reading

As I awoke to Healing Hearts at Wounded Knee

BirdFeederDearest Beloved Family, Community!

You! You reading this, you are my family, my community!
Blessed Mystery allows your presence, even as I write.

As I awoke to embrace this beloved day
As I awoke to greet the morning sun glinting, sparkling off the grass
As I awoke to the beauty mist drifting, floating from the Earth
As I awoke to “too much to do”
As I awoke to Healing Hearts at Wounded Knee
Love, Great Spirit enters…..thee, me,
We Indigenous singing down the Seine!
We Indigenous raising our Song!
We Indigenous, every Human on Earth!
Slowly joining hands, Slowly joining Hearts!
Gradually, inexorably, assuredly,
Love, Great Spirit
Melting walls keeping us apart
Thou, Thee, We, Me

Here we are, December 8, 2015 Continue reading
