Spiritual teacher, healer, and great
cook, Paurnamasi Waki is currently in New Mexico soaking up the great Southwest's
regional culture and sun but part of her heart still communes with the Northwest
and Spencer Creek Valley, especially at misty harvest time. Paurnamasi e-mailed her
peace prayer. She wrote her recipes when she produced a booklet to benefit the San
Juan island where she lived, the Guemes Island's Environmental Trust. The booklet
is called A Potpourri of Pumpkin Pleasures, a compilation of pumpkin recipes from

On as many levels as possible bring the Earth into balance in these areas:
Her intellectual, intuitive, electrical and magnetic functions; Her
skeletal systems, circulatory systems and meridian systems; and please

complex of internal and external systems.
Please infuse the entire Earth with Divine Light. (Pause a moment: breathe

to support the Earth during Her shift into wholeness.
Please anchor these changes into the physical quickly and gently as we
joyfully express our humble gratitude for this opportunity to help in the
healing of our Divine Mother, Earth.
