WHY DO SHAMANS PERFORM CEREMONIES AND RITUALS?

I’ve completed for many years the cyclical ceremonies of solstices, equinoxes and rites of passage in various places in Quebec and in Europe. Amazing things occur and people find a lot of inspiration, healing, personal growth and harmonization with nature. In every ceremony the spirits of nature communicate in some way that our prayers have been heard.

HOMOSEXUALITY – A SHAMAN’S THOUGHTS

Hello Blue Eagle,

In a society such as ours, there are aspects that are not readily accepted, for example homosexuality. Thus, I would like to know what you think of homosexuality.   Laurent

A.B. —This is a complex and delicate question but an important one. Thus we need to build an ideological, sociological framework that would allow tolerance and respect for all and a context where there is peace of mind and acceptance of oneself and others.

THE HERMIT AND SOLITUDE

A READER’S QUESTION:

Hi Blue Eagle

As there is a time for everything, a different place for each one, since we don’t all have the same characteristics and functions. I would like to read what you think of the role and function of the hermit. You often emphasize community and the contribution of each one to the whole, but it seems to me that you spent 3 years in hermit mode before returning in this world and that your inspiration, your muse, Anastasia is she not a recluse?

GARDENING IN HARMONY WITH NATURE

Question of a reader: Blue Eagle, I have a question concerning gardening. Nowadays, a lot of people want to have a garden, to cultivate fruits and vegetables in an ecological way. But they are often confronted with many problems, insects who eat their salads and having to pulverize pesticides. Thus, their gardens are no longer ecological. I don’t see people living in nature having to deal with these difficulties. What advice you can give to address these problems?

THE LIFE OF TREES AND THE FOREST

Last Saturday in the “Devoir”[1], there was an article on current research by university students. One of them had discovered that the roots of a tree were tightly interlaced with those of other trees and even welded together and are thus, inextricably interdependent. They found that the trees whose roots were welded with other trees have a stronger growth than those who didn’t. Interesting! That shows that the trees do not have as individual a life as one could think by seeing them. Francoise
