With the surprise of a connected phone call...The Divine Flow of the Tipi Family is gonna take another adventurous turn. We have been asked to co-create with the Lovely Permaculture Goddes Charlotte anthony . We are due to head to a Ringing Cedars Anastasia Intentional Community with the outcome of gaining knowledge to share as well as have the opportunity to co-teach with this amazing woman! When we return we will be loaded with even more knowledge to bring into our Tipi Family Lives!
This morning the Earth is Wearing Diamonds. This is our first freeze of the winter and we are blessed with enough firewood and a kick ass wood stove! There is something Magical about the earth and the outside of the Tipi covered in a layer of ice. Everything shimmers and blesses us with extraordinary light!
Taking a deep look at our level of waste and recycling, We as a family decided 3 days ago to completely stop buying things in plastic or metal. We are doing an experiment to see how our life shifts. It was a challenge on our first shopping trip and indeed we had to put many things back on the shelf. We are buying in bulk and only fresh. I have already noticed a difference in how my body feels eating even more fresh foods.
Wowza! We have been busy with the Tipi Reset. We decided not to build a deck and instead went Native and did a mound and trench. I hauled woodchips from a local project and created a mound with the center being the highest point. This will allow any water that gets in to drain out an into our trench that we dug. We also peeled and finished up our new tipi poles! This was a very challenging job. I have one huge recommendation if you ever choose to harvest your own poles the way I did. PEEL THEM RIGHT WHEN YOU HARVEST THEM!! I cannot stress this enough. I did the kinda lazy thing and waited till I needed them! My job was so hard. I am grateful that I had my mother and family to help peel. I had already peeled about 8 on site where I harvested and the difference between the 2 was substantial to say the least. I repeat!!! PEEL THEM ON SITE!
I am enthusiastic to say we now have two tipis up and ready for use and this week I plan on setting up one more for guests to stay in and as another shared outdoor space.
The first Sweat Lodge and Nature Connection Event will be in late November or early December!
