    in Spirituality

    Join us for this exciting episode with Plant Medicine Practitioner, Medicine Maker, and Wildcrafter, Scott Kloos.  Learn about his walk in Folk Medicine and the work he's been doing in Portland and beyond! 

    Scott Kloos has been working with the native plants of the Pacific NW since the late 90’s. In addition to many years of self-study, he completed the 1999 Herbal Apprenticeship Program at the Herb Pharm in Williams, OR, and in 2000, he attended a nine-month Community Herbalist Training Program with Christopher Hobbs. In 2009, he studied Traditional Western Herbalism: An Intuitive and Energetic Approach with Matthew Wood in Portland, OR.

    He spent seven years studying the human psyche (his own and others) in Paul Levy’s Awakening in the Dream group. Paul’s unique synthesis of the Dzogchen School of Tibetan Buddhism, Western Alchemy, Jungian Psychology, the Dreambody Psychology of Arnold Mindell, and shamanism deeply shaped his view of the world and his approach to healing and working with plants.

    He is the owner of Cascadia Folk Medicine, which produces small batch herbal extracts from the native plants of the region. In his healing practice he works with the psycho-spiritual aspects of plant medicine and hosts monthly Plant Teacher Ceremonies. He is one of the founders and a faculty member of the Elderberry School of Botanical Medicine in Portland, OR and is finishing his first book tentatively titled, "Wild Medicinal Plants of the Pacific Northwest: 120 Healing Herbs from Alumroot to Yerba Santa".

    Truth of Divine Self

    in Spirituality

    The simple truth of life is that we are all Divine by our very nature. We live as human and we tend to ignore the truth of all of us. It is my sense that we are more afraid of how small we are than how great we actually are. Life is to teach us our divine natural selves yet it goes completely ignored by most of us. God did say that we are just like as well as Christ. We have been conditioned to think the opposite of this idea through religion and education. We have been led away from this truth for thousands of years yet today we are in a period of great change to take us in the other direction. Look at the natural world and we can seeit. Our beliefs are being shifted so that we can see greater things of life and oursleves. All illusions are bing shattered one at a time so that we are able to see and realize the truth of us all.

    Seattle's Ground Zero Anti Nuclear Movement, Occupy and 1960s Resistance

    in Culture

    In the 1960s, resistors of the draft had no cell phones, social websites or even broad range fame.  Many were scorned.  How did they organize?  Many were thrown in jail, federal prison and fled the country.  Their resistance permeated civil rights, the Vietnam War, the Farmers United Workers movement (organizing Unions), etc.  Father Lawrence Rosebaugh was a part of all of this.  Tonight, we will take his book and compare experience from his life including him illegally climbing into a Georgia army base and talk about the difference of resistance movement of the 1960s-80s to todays movements of Occupy and Black Lives Matter.

    We will also discuss other movements like Cindy Sheehan's despair over her son, Casey's death.  Code Pink was involved with war resistance.

    In the 1980s Ground Zero established close ties with Nipponzan Myohoji, a pacifist Buddhist order from Japan, who worked with the Ground Zero community to build a peace pagoda. Unfortunately, the peace pagoda was never completed due to repeated denials for a land-use permit from the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners. Members of the greater Kitsap community also voiced their rejection of the proposed building in local newspapers. In May 1982 a temporary geodesic dome, which had been used for the monks' religious ceremonies, was destroyed in an act of arson. A stupa was later erected on the grounds as a memorial.  http://archiveswest.orbiscascade.org

    Recitations can be a useful tool to reconnect with balance, when our environment is distruptive.
