Regeneration

Above: Starhawk prepares participants for the annual Spiral Dance.

Starhawk joined us on her birthday to discuss her upcoming permaculture design certification training and ask for your contribution to the scholarship fund, whether as a birthday gift to her, as an expression of support for a Standing Rock water protector, a marginalized urban youngster, or a middle-aged woman in transition, or just because you agree that this project contributes to the regeneration that all of us owe to our planet and our fellow sojourners here.

Action Alert: Earth Activist Training

Date: 25 June to 9 July 2017
Location: Freeport, Illinois, USA

You Can Help: Diversity Scholarship Fund

In the featured interview, Starhawk connects the dots between permaculture design, social and environmental activism, and pagan spirituality. Also on today’s show, you will hear Return to the Mother, a chant by Judy Grahn and the Wind Hags, and the Summer Solstice song Litha sung by Lisa Thiel; lyrics are below the embedded ten-minute YouTube clip. Benjamin the Donkey is on hand with Limericks of Doom, and Sequitur theme music is provided by Zympht.

Return to the Mother
Judy Grahn & Wind Hags

spoken intro:
All over the world the waters are breaking
Everywhere, everywhere, the waters are breaking

And so return, return, return
Return to the Mother

descant counterpoint:
All over the world, the waters are breaking
The waters are breaking all over the world

Litha
Lisa Thiel, vocals

I am the fire that burns within your soul
I am the Holy light that fills and makes you whole
I am the Flame within, that never dies
I am the sun that will ever arise

Power of the Sun we honor you this night
We leap across the fire to keep our spirits bright
Power of the Sun, fire in the night
We leave behind, that which blinds, to restore our sight

I am the fire that clears away the old
I am the holy light that guides you to your soul
I am the Flame Of Love for which you yearn
I am the sun that will always return

Power of the Sun we honor you this night
We leap across the fire to keep our spirits bright
Power of the Sun, fire in the night
We leave behind, that which blinds, to restore our sight
