Listening to the Moon

In the video "Listening to the Moon" from "The Wisdom of the Jaguar & The Deer," Marita One Who Catches Lightning, and Angell Deer delve into the profound connection humans can cultivate with the moon. They share insights on how to sync with the lunar cycles, emphasizing that the moon's influence is not limited to its full phase but extends through its entire cycle.

The discussion highlights the Apache moonwalker tradition, which sees the moon as a daily guide. It explores the significance of the new moon in birth and regeneration, contrasting it with the peak experiences often celebrated in Western spirituality. The speakers also touch upon the interconnectedness of the moon's phases with land and life cycles, and the importance of fostering a continuous and deep relationship with the moon.

They conclude by inviting viewers to discover their own moon cycles and listen to the moon's wisdom, integrating it into their daily lives.
