"The teachings are for all, not just for Indians...The white people never wanted to learn before...Now they have a different understanding, and they do want to learn. We are all children of God.

Blue Deer Center News

Posted November 18, 2014

So, one of the questions is, "Where does one go to have contact with that? To learn and to grow from those noble ancient traditions?"

Learn how the season of Fall, the time of letting go and inspiration, is effecting you now.

"Death and decomposition has cleared space for new growth when the cycle of birth returns. And, now the shining silver trunks and limbs of the trees stand as glorious structures pointing to the clear open sky. The realm of the heavens is revealed and given its natural place of honor. There is a sense of appreciation for the beauty of what once flourished and what jewels of life still remain. There is sense of awe and inspiration – a welcome freshness in the air."
