The Seed Songs - Book One: New Moons Trade paperback $18.95


This visionary eco-sci-fi story features a reluctant young heroine born during a time of crisis within a star-ship Federation in a distant solar system. Power objects bestowed during the time of the Ascent from Earth awaken a latent prophecy, identifying Mellinar, just entering womanhood, as the Emissary, sending her on a voyage back to Earth. While there she is initiated in the ancient lineage of the Sacred Grove. She returns to the Federation crystalized with clarity of purpose, endowed with additional psychic abilities and now supported by a young Earthling named Vedano and a shape-shifting mentor, Midigini. 

As the resource crisis deepens, Mellinar and her cohorts catalyze healing potentials and opportunities as they move from ship to ship. A resistant ruling class, increasingly obstreperous under-class and numerous rogue ships make for complications and obstructions that Mellinar and her cohorts must mindfully navigate to usher in the next epoch.

Review: An enjoyable, magical read, New Moons is an adventure embedded with wisdom we need right now, led by a young woman whose destiny is to bring us back to our purpose as caretakers of our world – or in this case – worlds.

Once you fall under the author’s spell, you will want to stay in the world she’s created. I came away believing in the greater wisdom we share and the resilience of life itself. If you don’t have this book yet – get it! Julie Akins, Journalist/Writer 


Traveler Oracle Deck and Booklet

The Traveler Oracle is a tool for change. Use it when there is a need for guidance and self-inquiry. It offers valuable questions to ask, perspectives that will stretch, open your perspective, and encourage you in the development of wisdom.

 “The Traveler Oracle is, hands down, the best oracle deck I’ve ever seen, visually and conceptually.” 

“There are many so-called “oracles” that have come and gone… many failed because they had no heart. 
None have impressed me like your “Traveler Oracle” with its compassionate healing and understanding of the human condition. It advises me, chides me and lovingly reveals my inner world in relation to a bigger understanding of my personal life adventure.”  

“The Traveler Oracle never fails to amaze and affirm with its timely observations and valuable guidance. I consult the “Traveler” for guidance because it clarifies and confirms my direction and action in the moment.
