Come as You Are

Come as you are. Walk the  Thundering Cloud’s wild prairie spiral now in full bloom. Waiting for you, sunrise to dusk. Walk the ancient spiral and visit with the natural world. Open free to the public, 5:30 am to 7:00 pm,  August 8th to August 15th.


“You don’t need tickets

To listen to crickets.”  Douglas Florian, children’s author

Take your prayers and intentions into the spiral and open up to the wisdom that is everywhere. Or simply come and listen as you move through the wild flowers and grasses. 

“Listen to the voice of nature, for it holds treasures for you.”  –Huron Proverb

Located at Thundering Cloud’s Center for Creative Expression, LLC 6 miles west of Plain Wisconsin. Call or email ahead for directions, 608-588-3005. I will be available walking the spiral each sunrise till August 15th, 2008. Sunrise walks will include a brief guided meditation.  Dawn and dusk are transformative times in the prairie.

“Attend me, hold me in your muscular flowering arms, protect me from throwing any part of myself away.”  – Audre Lorde, African-American Poet and Activist  

“For love is our true purpose, our true calling. Love is calling each of us home, to the vast reservoir of love within ourselves.”  –Lama Surya Das, Buddhist teacher and author

Dusk           by Shannon King 

At Dusk iridescence,

houses, trees, grass, flowers

begin to glow

giving up the stored light of day.

darkening of sky

opens to us, a glimpse

into the heart of matter,

as it lapses into night.  – Shannon King, poet, artist, friend
