Healing the Wounded Earth

Palisade, Colorado, United States—Ceremony for all the wounded places on Earth—Marla Ferguson

Eight Kindred Spirits gathered at the edge of the Colorado River to honor all of the wounded places in the Earth. We each put a pin into a globe-shaped pin cushion when we talked about the wound that was most important to us. We then removed the pins and used them to attach a fabric brooch with hearts and earth symbols on it to our shirts. We strummed a wooden frog during our ceremony to bring about cleansing and purification. We then made a RadJoy bird out of natural items and trash from the bank of the river. It was a very healing ceremony!
