The video below is the revised edition of the photographic Story of the Forest at Rainbow's End, now known as Raven Hill Botanicals. It's an anthology shown through photos of my life on the mountain and the changes we have gone through with the forest. In 2008, the pine beetle infestation devastated the forests of my mountain home near Potomac, Montana. In 2009, I had to have the top of my land clear-cut to save the remaining trees. We worked on forest thinning and restoration three times because of deforestation and destruction. Where once there was a forest is now an open meadow. This year I purchased a tipi which I intend to put out in the meadow to start a new Sacred Circle of Healing after 15 years. Friends, neighbors, campers, and people of the Healing Circles will gather this summer for Forest Bathing, Song-Dance-Drumming Circles, and learning how to sit and/or dance in peace with the flowers, trees, grasses, and other humans and animals who grace this beautiful land. Calling forth our collective energies in re-forming ceremonial gathering places where people of all colors and creeds are welcome to join our Sacred Circle to celebrate each other and all Nature Spirits that dwell here and help us grow to love, care, and nurture one another. Please come and join us. I am putting the call out to healers of all genres and people to help me organize a collective Heaven-on-Earth approach - crystal healers, reiki healers, dancers, musicians, drummers, herbalists, flower & gem essence practitioners, as well as people interested in participating in coming together to help heal the earth. This will be family friendly and children of all ages are welcome.

APRIL Snow in Montana and How the Birds show us spring is just around the corner, no matter how late
It has been a long and brutal winter here in Montana and it is spilling over into springtime. In fact, day after day, we have had cold temperatures and and snowstorms. In fact, we had another snowstorm today, even though it has already melted off. Many of us are wondering if we will ever experience the springtime blossoms. Meanwhile, I am observing spring through the myriad of birds either returning or stopping by on their migration, or those who call Raven Hill Botanicals home all year long, like our raven families and, of course, the wild turkeys!
