Returning to Mandalas

This is an invitation to join me in a sacred Earth meditation practice. I was reminded yesterday in a conversation with a friend how much my periodic commitment to mandala meditation practices have changed my life over the years. From drawing mandalas on paper in the 90′s, to saving rocks in baskets and bowls and nurturing giant medicine wheels in the woods behind my house…

Whenever I commit to a daily meditation practice with mandalas and nature, something powerful in my life heals and shifts, answers come, pathways and decisions become clear. Continue reading

Earth Rights and the Problem of Ecofacism

I am enjoying immensely my break from thinking about environmental ethics over the past year and a half (since leaving my professor gig). It is psychologically overwhelming to teach about and contemplate such concerns on a regular basis. Now refreshed from my break, I’m back to thinking about what it would look like to grant “rights” to the Earth, including other species and ecosystems. This idea of Earth rights is circulating in the public sphere right now because it’s come up during the current climate talks as the basis of a solution to the climate crisis.  Continue reading

Welcome! The winter session is full. I will run two groups in the Spring: Sunday afternoon and Tuesday evening. Send me an email if you would like to be on a waiting list for Spring: eemeacham @

In this three-month experiential workshop series, participants will learn methods for shamanic journeying in a safe and supportive environment. We will explore a variety of journeying methods, as well as effective ways to prepare for shamanic journeying.

Embarking on a path of shamanic journey work offers many chances for profound healing, life shifts, and transformation. I know from personal experience that having one-on-one guidance from someone that has walked this path helps tremendously to actualize and learn to hold the expansion of consciousness that regular journey work invites (it’s up to us if we want to take these invitations).

Why do we say Gaia?

gaiaAs the Earth rotates us toward a new season, re-aligning our relationship to the sun, I thought I would honor Earth by reflecting on an important name of our planetary home: Gaia.  Many people refer to Earth as Gaia for a variety of reasons, including spiritual, archetypal, and scientific, to name a few.  In Greek mythology, Gaia is Earth personified in the form of a goddess, the ancestral mother of all life on the planet.  James Lovelock, in his now famous Gaia Hypothesis, argues that the biosphere is a self-regulating organism that  organizes and perpetuates all planetary systems.  Continue reading
