Dear Ones,

In my Earth Renewal newsletter I noted that last year had been rough for many people. 2017 surely hasn’t started out any easier. In this newsletter I am answering a question a dear sister in France asked me, “What is a clan mother?” It has taken me quite a while to define this role. What is in this blog is a very short answer to a big question. I have begun the sequel to Woman of the Dawn and will explore the topic in a lot more depth in that book.

Thank you for the prayers you sent to Jennifer Patten’s daughter, Savannah, and to Star Savoy. They both appreciate them and are healing as well as they can. So many people have illnesses now or are helping friends or family members who are sick. I remember those who ask for my help and blessings in my morning prayers. Maybe you do the same. It’s a good way to start the day.

I continue with all the projects I wrote about last time. Dancing with the Wheel will be published in France shortly, and I have set dates to go build Medicine Wheels in France in May. The flyer for these will soon be in the Events section of my website. Please forward the information on to any friends you have in Europe. The Medicine Wheel will be published in Taiwan in March; Dancing with the Wheel shortly after. I have set dates to go teach there in September, and have agreed to extend the trip and also teach in mainland China. Since I never expected to be traveling to teach again, this is all a delightful surprise.

Through my Facebook pages I have been urging people to read or re-read Sun Bear: The Path of Power. Sun Bear’s story is so full of good teachings about vision, life, community, the prophecies and what it was like to be a Native person in the Twentieth Century. So much of what he taught and did built the foundation for many things happening today. And he was a one of a kind true character so the book is funny and poignant as well as historical.

I appreciate how well some of you have been keeping in touch through our new group Facebook page “Friends of the Medicine Wheel Teachings of Sun Bear and Marlise Wabun Wind”. I thank all of you who have used that forum to share some of your own stories. Please join and participate in this group, and invite your friends to do so also!

I want to thank all of you who take the time to follow and LIKE me on Facebook (Marlise Wabun Wind and “Friends of the Medicine Wheel Teachings of Sun Bear and Marlise Wabun Wind"). Thanks also for looking at my website, reading my blogs and encouraging your friends to subscribe to this newsletter. Please continue to spread the word, and remember to tell people they have to click on “confirm” in the email they get right after subscribing to get the newsletter and the MP3 talk about the feminine. Feel free to share the blogs or refer other people to them, but credit them to me.

Sisters, please think hard about the responsibilities of clan mothers, and of mothers. Brothers, remember to respect and support all women, and the great being we reflect, our dear Mother Earth.

Warmly,
Marlise Wabun Wind
