September 2018 Radio Interview with Theresa C. Dintino about Divination, Spiritual Lineages and Working with Elemental Beings

Recently I was interviewed again on the Mystical Positivist Radio Show hosted By Dr. Robert Schmidt and Stuart Goodnick  on KOWS-LP 107.3 FM in Occidental, CA. This is the second time I was invited to be a guest on this lively and engaging show. This time we touched a bit on current events, new projects and then delved even more deeply into the subject of divination and how ones becomes a diviner, the elemental beings and how they work with us, spiritual lineages and how to find them and realign with them. Once again the interview itself offered me much reflection and time for thought as the...

A Recording for and about the Trees

In September of 2016 I gave a talk at Many Rivers Books and Teas in Sebastopol, CA on my Tree Medicine Trilogy of books. The recording of that event has been made available only recently. I thought I would share it here for anyone that may be interested in listening.

It was a good night and the discussion was fun and lively. Here’s...

The Memory of a Thing is the Song that it Sings

That is also how they hear us. They can “hear” us because they can hear the memory that we are singing. They say it is often a song that even we cannot hear, but they can hear it. I put “hear” in quotes because we must...

The One-Breasted Woman

  There is a shrine in the Dagara tradition that falls under the category of the Saazumwin. She is called The One-Breasted Woman. The Saazumwin are the ones who stretch between the Earth and the stars. They are the beings from the space above, the light beings, the star beings. They are cosmic and benevolent and can often be seen as what many call angels. (To learn more about the Saazumwin, see chapter 10 of my book, Notes from a Diviner in the Postmodern World: A Handbook for Spirit Workers) I was told very little about this shrine when I was first told to make it. I was told to make a...
