Three tuning forks of various sizes

Seeing and hearing Debbi Walker’s remarkable stories of healing animals with sound therapy at the Animal Energy World Conference in England this past May, my immediate reaction was: Earthfire animals! It wasn’t only the stories, but Debbi’s medical training and her extensive research into the nature of sound healing, combined with deeply intuitive skills, that impressed me. Her analysis went from research on the vagus nerve to the beautiful statement that with sound healing, ancient memories are switched on. And so I invited her to Earthfire, and two months later, Debbi arrived here from England to spend seven days working with our animals (and humans---necessary!). She is so...

We are all Midwives for Life There are so many exciting, positive, mind-bending new learnings going on in the world. We are such an innately creative species.  It is a joy for me to keep up with them in the field of human/animals/nature/Earth relations and then share them with you. Part of the pleasure is letting the information flow through me to you. In our last conversation, one participant asked me if I felt like a midwife (I love the perceptions that come out of these conversations). After a moment’s reflection, I said, “Yes,” because what I am doing is trying to help birth new ideas and perspectives in the service of Life. And, really, I realized, each of us is working for a...

Seeds in various stages of germination

Seeds are tiny, magical packets of latent energy and potential, ready to burst forth when conditions are right. They contain the very essence of Life itself: ancient wisdoms and future hopes, exquisitely designed to adapt and evolve as needs arise. Part of Earthfire’s mission is to be a seed center. Here we gather selections of what we would like to see to germinate, take root, and unfurl into the light; stories that educate, inspire, inform and embrace hope and action. We invite you to partake, swap and share them. May they all bear fruit. The EAT-Lancet commission has released a report on feeding the world's growing population within planetary boundaries. Humans lived nearly...

Bottles of various sizes filled with colorful oils, with herbs and mortar and pestle in the background

What would a conference be like if it was founded on a vision handed down from an unearthly source? The Animal Energy meeting I attended earlier this month can offer a bit of an answer. In 2011, Marie Holliday, founder of the conference, was conducting a training on the Emotional Freedom Technique, a well-researched method of releasing trauma in humans. As she was teaching a procedure called Personal Peace, she writes, “A very loud and very clear, deep male voice spoke as I was talking about this---right above my head: 'You will never have World Peace until you take our Animals with you.' It was like a call to action, no choice, a command.” “From that second on, my life was...
