Abstract

This medicine history began in ceremony. These words faced and received sacred directions. All from above, and below, gathered in the centre in interwoven movements. Knowledge and cycles were folded in/to each direction as we aligned in spiritual configurations. We stood in the Northern door, the Macehual direction of elders and ancestors, and the sacred winds of deep experience of knowing beyond knowing, calling in the ancestors to this creation.
