The core goal of Margaret's work is to assist both individuals and communities in their intrinsic, ongoing search for wholeness.
Shamanic tradition believes that we are all one. This means that whether we are humans, animals, fish, birds, plants, trees – all species of life – we all stand equally in the large circle of life. We are all interdependent upon each other. Just like the delicate spider web, if one segment of the web is threatened the other segments react or respond.
Within this context, Margaret's work consists of encouraging individuals to step into a New Story. She believes that we must reconnect and build a story that will tread more softly upon Mother Earth and that only by being heart-centered can we truly heal.
In all aspects of her work Margaret provides meditations and shamanic journeying to assist with her teachings. Each meditation provides a mystical doorway where participants may travel to a world that becomes enlivened with a sense of beauty. This mystical path to nature and to the sacred then becomes the foundation of re-connection.
Imagine: The Celebration of a New Myth is a story about exploring past trauma, be it mental, physical, or sexual abuse experienced in early childhood. I call the original trauma the old myth and then describe transforming this history by bridging to a whole new story.
This transformation was accomplished in a unique way by following Shamanic tradition. By taking the past trauma and transforming it through the making of masks, shields, or drums, individuals were able to utilize all of their senses and thus get a fuller picture of how past trauma had impacted upon their developmental process.
For a full decade, I assisted individuals in this unique process that included body, mind, and spiritual experiences. It was a great privilege to witness many remarkable transformations. Bridging to new myth is a remarkable journey!
