1 am Solana Booth: Remembering Mother’s Breath

I will invite attendees to accept that we as a human family are in an unhealthy relationship to ourselves and one another and most importantly to Mother Earth. Regardless of which happened first, we are all in tough times; we are in “the thick of it”, a term used when we are having a tough time during a plant ceremony. This sharing will be my testament to humanity and Mother Earth and healing, to having the entheogenic, spiritual experience, to remembering Mother’s Breath. Humans must heal. This is what Mother Earth is asking. Indigenous people are the original sentinels of Mother Earth. We have an intimate, informed, and evidence-based connection to her. It’s knowing that we are both made of the same elements, that we are both mostly water to start. This will be a moment of my matrilineal matriarchal lineage to express the story of remembering Mother’s Breath, a story of how deeply connected we are to Mother Earth as a human family and how we can reframe the dysfunction happening among all of us right now and restore the spiritual connection that binds us to each other, to essence, and to Mother Earth.
