“I have been amazed from the very first time by the beautiful objects I have created with Barbara. Her attention to detail, from a prayer into each knot, to the careful preparation she makes even before I arrive, and the journeys she drums for us always deepen my connection to Spirit. Her natural ability as a gifted artist and her honoring for the sacred in Nature “hold space” to enhance my creativity . The experience each time I have created ceremonial objects with Barbara has been transformative, healing, and joyful! My collection of hand-made ceremonial objects are my favorites, as are each of the deepening experiences I had while creating them.”  Dana

“Dear Barbara, You have great knowledge, I trust you and you are a wonderful person. You keep tradition and I think that is very important! To nature you are famous for all that you do. You help animals and can speak to the ones who have passed. YOU ARE THE TEACHER. I listen to you, you are my teacher. I learn many things. Things about plants, things about animals, things about the world around me. I AM THE STUDENT.”

“Looking for a spiritual teacher to bring ritual and reverence into my life and that of my daughter, as she is moving into adolescence, I connected with Barbara. We have been spending beautiful times together making medicine, involving the girls in smudging, journeying visualizing, sitting in nourishing circles of many generations, connecting them with the spirit that lies in them and surrounds them. Barbara is a humble and warm teacher that gives her gifts generously –we can’t wait to share medicine time with her again!”  Anne

“Barbara has an intimate and loving relationship with prayer and the Four Directions, respect for all life forms on this planet and inspiration to share in her art forms and reverential offerings. I have been blessed to birth a drum and beater with her, in a most shamanic manner, including my favorite part… journeying to meet the skin’s owner. Making a feather fan was a truly heart opening experience. In all activities, Barbara holds you in her huge heart space and expansion takes place, in your own heart, mind and spirit!”  Bev

“Barbara’s medicine gift is a planetary expansion of ancient tradition in wisdom, compassion, and love itself. All the while returning the peace and harmony back to beautiful Maka Ina. It is a space of divinity and grace to call your allies and ancestors to rise your vibration and listen to your life purpose. Barbara not only facilitates this communion, but also offers a chance to rise in giving back in the abundance of medicine that is given to us.”  Joel

“I have participated in three medicine sessions with Barbara: Rattle medicine, wing medicine and drum medicine. There I connect with the Spirit world of beings who contribute their energy, form and permission to be used in medicine to help the two leggeds. I have connected with elk, cedar, birch, birds, shell, deer, energy and Spirit and I am a more integrated person because of it. The experience that Barbara creates is deeply honoring of the participants and the community we create while we stop time and seek our inner world and connection with the ways of the ancestors. We forget our world of hurry up and distraction to pay attention to that quiet knowing and reverence within us that honors nature’s ways. I take time to talk to the Spirit world and remember ancient truths. I go home with my medicine and a heart that is full, a Spirit that is aligned with that which is simple and important: love each other, honor all spirits and their contribution and be still and listen to my inner voice which always speaks of good and gentile ways.”  Janaki

“Barbara has opened me to the world of Bird Medicine, connecting me to nature, Spirit and myself in new ways. Barbara is intuitive, insightful, compassionate and grounding. Barbara brings a simple peacefulness to her Bird Medicine workshops – she creates sacred and healing space. She has always known the perfect medicine for me and guides me with patience in creating with my hands from my heart and soul. Barbara is a beautiful person and gifted healer. She can see into the soul and into the darkness in order to find the light. She carries the powerful medicine of transformation. To me, she is like the owl, helping me see hidden parts of myself and accompanying me on journeys of the soul; comfortable in the darkness and the light.”  Tara
