Dancing with Goddess Try to imagine beautiful women working together in love and trust, honoring their Goddess, provider of all. These women are wild women, which mean they are free spirits - connected in all ways with their environment - in tune with the energies about them, in tune with their own energies, unafraid and bold in how they live their lives. This is your birthright - to live freely and without fear. You cling to what you know is right in your heart. You trust that you will always have what you need. You allow yourself to be vulnerable and open to love. You dance with the wind, revel in the warmth of the sun, and play like a child in the rain. You are these Amazon Women, now, in this place, in this time, wild and free, strong and beautiful. 

From the BranchIt is my hope in this book that I can give you a few ideas of what the ogham is, where it might have come from, and how I (and others) use it as a spiritual tool. There is much we do not know about the Ogham. It is not known for sure if the ogham was ever used for divination. And finally, it is not known if the letters were ever used to designate lunar cycles. What is known is that there were many oghams - the letters themselves, bird oghams, tree oghams, etc. The letters being symbols for certain words, not all trees as it thought by most today. What we have is a system that uses several oghams in combination that is not necessarily historically correct but that which works for us as a tool for learning. This book deals with those teachings set in a framework of the lunar year.

Ogham TwigsWithin this little book are complete instructions for creating your own set of Ogham Twigs – a tool to use for divination as well as to learn more about the Ogham. You can make your set as you like it using Popsicle sticks, tongue depressors, or you can create a set such as shown on the cover. You may also gather twigs from each tree or from local trees in your area. Let your imagination be your guide. May the wisdom of the Old Ones be your inspiration. 

This little book is a collection of prose and poetry I have written over the years which appears on my blog also entitled Her Breath. I was prompted to create this book for my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who might otherwise never really know me.
