Homecoming

A Poem by Kavi Jain

Coming back,

Home to the Land


Weaving each day,

In sync with the elements


Mirroring,

Healing waters of emotionality


Realigning,

Nature calibrates space and thyme


Foraging for center,

A respite for the weary soul

Healing,

Rest, reparations and expression

Community,

reciprocity, belonging and care Land Back, Stewardship, rematriation and protecting the sacred Grounding, Barefoot, in rich forest beds

Ancestral Wind,

gently pushes as we walk eachother home.

Landscape of Nature | Language of Medicine


Everything we need to heal can be found right in nature.




[Water + Air]


We meditate, on and off, throughout the day. We often lay together as head-to-foot like 2 cashews; yin + yang and yang + yin nestled like koi. Intuitive and reciprocal protection, expressing our love language while we nurture one another on our separate journeys. Rising to the day just as Father Sun peeks through the eye of the horizon. Moving our bodies with ritual tasks, lighting the wood stove, preparing a large pot of tea to flush toxins and ignite the digestive fire. A blend of soft green and nettle nourish the cells, spicy ginger root and cinnamon reinvigorates circulation. Life force glowing in my belly, burning off yesterday's lessons. Blowing the breath of 'hope' into a fistful of tobacco, offering it to the hearth, expressing gratitude to the ancestors for walking me home safely each night.








[Air + Earth]


Midday is spent connecting with community, savoring the give and take of reciprocally woven relationships, intentionally giving more than I wish to take. Building on our home, a little bit each day. Living beneath our means, aligning with the circadian, grounding to the earth, speaking to grandmother, embodying the divine. Divinity exists in all things.





[Nature + Mineral]


Going over dreams, notes and synchronicities spanning recent days, weeks and months. "Listen to the wind. Taste the air. Ground to the earth. Observe is an instinct. Fragments woven from protection, awareness, understanding, compassion, inner knowing, open channel, align with boundaries when we breath into center. The more you learn, the more we understand. Kundalini rising, as Prana, alchemical purification, alignment, and the ongoing expansion in consciousness and awareness beget our ascension. We are coming home Great Mother."




[Mineral + Fire]


Preparing sustenance for Odin, going for a walk with nature, greeting spirit each day in all things. Greeting sun and moon, engaging with sound in all directions, in gratitude for animating our collective existence. Taking time to track and piece together clues from my guidance from version of my higher self, observing and lighting the path, overarching from the ethers. Slowly, throughout the day, chipping away at the stories that I did not write for myself in this lifetime, to allow space for the great remembrance.




[Fire + Water]


Sinking deeper into human waters, the source of life, reconciliation and grief, engaging deeply sunken fragments of the inner child. Layers of karma, identity and wisdom manifest through numerals in the fabric of dimension. Chakral meridians rising, convene at emotional high-tide, where the physical and instinctual meet the intuitional and spiritual, atoning at the heart space of Annahata, in the unconditional one's mercy and grace.

Graze

(a poem by Kavi)


Enjoying the day,

in hermitage


Keen, observing,

as the hawk clan does


At late-autumn cusp

winter's hibernation time


Sharpening our gaze

as we graze,

remembering to snacking often
