Support for Windraven

Dear Friends,
 My name is Karen Smith.  I live at Isis Cove. I'm being the point person on Windraven's behalf because she is without communication and still in recovery from her losses from the recent fire that consumed her home.  Let me say that she is absorbing the outpouring of love and has been receiving copies of e-mails and phone calls forwarded to me for the time being. The following is a list that she's able to identify at this time for high priority needs.

All that remains of Windraven's home
Windraven's burnt home
After expenses, Windraven's financial resources are very minimal now. Although her home was insured, it is - as often happens in these situations - inadequate and will not completely cover her losses.  If you feel moved to send her some monetary support, please send a check (tax deductible) made out to Venus Rising with an attached note that it is for Windraven.   

PLEASE DO NOT write "Windraven" on the check. WRITE "Fire Donation".
Venus Rising, P.O. Box 486, Sylva, NC 28779

Or you may contact the Venus Rising office if you would like to donate with a credit card.
Phone: 828-631-2305 or email:

Immediate Needs:
- Cash in any amount, right now for food and simple necessities (check writing info above)- Cell phone (already donated by Kansas City breathwork facilitators)
- Computer (already donated by Paul Fairchild)
- Living Accommodations: (Brad and Star Wolf have offered her a place to live while her home is being built at Isis Cove)

Long Term Needs:
- Labor on house and/or land (Mike Cooper, excavator, will bull doze her lot and carry off debris)
- Landscaping, bushes, trees
- Furniture/ furnishings
- Appliances (stove, microwave, refrigerator, vacuum)
- Linens, towels, sheets, pillows, etc.
- TV and DVD player
- Washer and dryer
- Cash contributions for home supplies
- Storage until home is replaced

- Trauma relief in the form of a getaway from the cove

As her Isis Cove soul family in residence, we are staying aware of Windraven's needs and intend to be available in every way we're able as the future unfolds.  Please don't hesitate to e-mail me directly with questions or concerns about Windraven's recovery.  As I said above, she receives copies of all correspondence.  When Windraven is able, she wants to write her own letter of response to everyone.  Thank you, again.

Warmest Regards,
Karen Smith

Star Wolf's Welcome

My journey in life has been a spiral path of wholeness that continues to move through cycles of change taking me through many symbolic death and rebirth experiences, which I refer to as “shamanic portals of transformation.” I have learned more than I ever thought possible through a process I will share with you in my future writings, called the Shamanic Breathwork™ process, and the five initiations process called S.H.I.P. Once I have made sense of the lessons on my path and discovered the bigger picture, I am ready to pass on and share both my stumblings and my leaps along the way. In my own spiritual quest, I have always appreciated most those who shared their struggles and victories in an authentic way. That will be my humble attempt within the context of this blog.

I believe that we are all indigenous to this earth. I respect all my relations, whether they be human, animal, plant, mineral, visible or invisible ones. We are all related by the great web of life and sent here from the great beyond. Everything we say and do touches all parts of this magnificent web of creation. If I treat myself or anyone else unfairly, we are all affected in some way. Fortunately, the converse is true, as well. I am not perfect. If I am honest and have humility, I can admit that I will make mistakes as I seek to further evolve my conscious awareness. I can also make living amends by striving to change my negative thoughts and behaviors, and live from a more open-hearted connection to others and to myself. I have learned over time that all the changes I seek in the outer world must begin by looking within myself first. I have also learned that it is imperative that I have the courage to be honest with myself and to look at the “shadow” side of my personality. When I have had the courage to truly know myself better, the light and the dark, I have found the inner strength to change my life and shape-shift myself into the light of my true soul’s image.

From time to time I will share different programs and events that are being offered through my non profit organization (Venus Rising Institute for Shamanic Healing Arts) in my blog, as well as photos, videos and teachings, etc. But the main purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet to share the inner musings of my shamanic spirit and journey, and to hear yours as well. I look forward to connecting with all of you who intuitively know that you, too, are a valuable part of the shamanic process of conscious co-creation and evolution on the planet at this time. We each have a role to play and a soul purpose in the drama unfolding in our world today. Together we can create a better place for all beings on earth to live and leave a powerful legacy for those who are yet to come.

I believe we will all be remembered by future generations for the choices we make during this time of huge evolutionary change. In the words of the wonderful poem, “Summer Day,” by Mary Oliver, “what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

In Love, In Service, In Gratitude,
Star Wolf
