Mick Dodge, Barefoot Sensei: "Following Your Feet. WOW! HOW? NOW! Stepping Out of the Shoe Box!"

mick



Yoish! I feel it is necessary to warn the shod and sedentary that there is a danger in stepping out of shoes and engaging the land with your naked soles and learning to step into your primal body memory.



Because it will “make sense”!



And “making sense” is addictive.



It is a challenge for the tender feet at first. But it is… Continue

Pause and give thanks!

'Tis the season. Let's pause to give thanks for the many blessings of 2009 and prepare for the coming year.



I spent a few hours, today, with Mick Dodge [Dee-oh-gee], the Barefoot Sensei, an "Exuberant Animal" who has now blessed SingPeace! A Pilgrimage for Peace & Global Harmony with his deep footing and grin. I'm greatly refreshed and honored to be in the company of one who wends his way in the elemental wisdom of the "gated wild."

I see the four corners of the country are (roughly) represented, today: Florida, NJ, Texas and the Pacific Northwest. Let's cradle and croon this infant through its various ages and stages of growth with goodwill, peace and harmony.



I want you to know that I'm writing and publishing the SingPeace! gypsy wagon story… Continue

SingPeace! backstory: Childhood Dramas & Traumas

Singing for Peace and Global Harmony off the end of a gypsy vardo - Romany for wagon or caravan - to my mind evokes a colorful, ever-resourceful community on wheels but also close to the earth, at the heart of which is the universal appeal of their life-sustaining music and dance.



This SingPeace! Pilgrimage was conceived at the intersection of our recent economic downturn and the simultaneous rise of the human…

BLACK BIRD MEDICINE

BLACK BIRD MEDICINE
