Winter Solstice Circle of Lights
Winter Solstice Circle of Lights at the Newton Medicine Wheel in the PLOT Sharing Garden, In honour of Elder Mentor Grandma Amy Wuttunee Eagle Tail Feather Eusterguerling. The weather was winter cold and the opposite was true of the hearts who tended and attended the Candle Light Vigil.
Death of our Mentor
It is with very sad hearts that we share the news of our dear Friend of the PLOT and Mentor, the Newton Medicine Wheel’s Visionary and Founder Elder Grandma Amy Wuttunee Eurtergerilng’s passing.
Amy, Manchu S’quao’s Earth; Worm Woman’s devotion to the teachings of the Medicine Wheel and to the wisdom from her lineage was unparalleled. The knowledge was imparted with great grace, love, and humour and has been a blessing for so many.
While we grieve the loss of this beautiful being, I sense all her ancestors and those on the other side celebrating and welcoming her arrival, acknowledging her life, and her passionate work to regenerate and keep the teachings of living with the Laws of Nature alive.
Thank you for being an example of how to walk in a good and soft way, and how to be in right relationship with this amazing Mama Earth.
Thank you to Don and Cora Li-Leger for welcoming Amy into the PLOT Sharing Garden project. Amy always tells the story of your enthusiastic acceptance of her wish to create a Medicine Wheel.
