Honoring A Very Special Elder
I write this after 12 days of a long and heart-connected vigil with OUR beloved Eialina Armfelt, who helped found One United Resource some 20+ years ago. In these last days of 24/7 ceremony, song, tears and letting go…..her life continued to remind us all of why OUR ECOVILLAGE is such an important sacred space at this time in the advent of human/planetary affairs. As she would remind us…..”what befalls my people, so befalls the planet”; in other words how we treat ourselves and each other is a direct reflection of how we treat the earth…..our mother. She has been the mother to so much beauty and possibility in her life time…..and her ashes will be laid to rest at the base of the Peace Pole on Vision Hill at OUR ECOVILLAGE some time in the coming months when we have yet another ‘Commemorative Conservation Scattering Grounds; Green Burial’ Legacy Project with The Land Conservancy of BC‘ ceremony and honoring for this fiery Viking Womyn whose spirit has touched all OUR lives!
“Blessed Be”.. Brandy, O.U.R. Ecovillage Executive Director
