Feather Messages: the ones we take for granted holds space for intimate conversation between birds and humans and trees. We invite you to gather with us at dawn and/or dusk for the transition from dark to light and light to dark. We will be actively listening and passing on messages from the birds/bards as desiring, as shining, as whistling, as journeying with the more-than-human world.
