About the Book
"Most of us have forgotten how to weep, how to love, and how to stand in the face of evil.
We have divorced ourselves so entirely from the living soil that we imagine we exist outside of its cosmic order. With our screens and our machines, our drugs, and our dictators, we have placed all faith in the greatness of our intellect, and in doing so, sent into exile the intuitive wisdom of the divine feminine force. The great intellects of our time, centered in the city that never sleeps, ridicule those who have kept their connection flowing to the land, to the flora and fauna, calling them naive, ignorant, uneducated, backwards. And yet, these are the human beings who could survive exile, who could survive cultural extraction, who could survive a medical apartheid.
As we stand on this cusp and imagine the unimaginable things that this administration my attempt to do in the name of “health”, in the name of their one world empire - I look to those souls, raw and wild, in the land and of the land, who have never forgotten.
For we all may need their help now."
My name is Maré Hieronimus and I have spent my life submerging myself in a tapestry of creative, healing, movement and performing arts. Early and ongoing experiences with nature and spirit had a profound effect upon me, shaping the course of my life. The work that I do has taken many forms: teaching, dance and performance, private movement healing sessions, the holding of sacred space through ritual and ceremony, and the writing of poetry and prose, but the purpose remains the same. The Sacred Body is a tapestry of the ancient traditions and modern techniques that I have submerged myself in, including Yoga, Ayurveda, dance, somatic practice, developmental movement, shamanic healing and journeywork. All of these techniques are used in the service of creativity and healing, and the movement towards living an embodied life in harmony with the cycles of nature, and imbued with the power of spirit.
