Our Mama Raven's wings have lifted her spirit from this lifetime and she is in flight to her next journey, where she will dance in our hearts forever.

I've been in tears or the edge of tears all day. when I opened my emails this morning I found that Gabrielle Roth had left her body. I have known she was on the brink for over a week now, and been feeling a sort of undertow of sadness and grief. 
But now she's gone, and its like one of the foundation bricks of a whole generation's Spiritual journey's had been taken out. And I also know that her work is just starting now too. I first came across her book 'Maps to Ecstasy' in 1989, and it was so resonant for me, that I couldn't understand how come I hadn't always had this book in my life. Reading it changed my life in many ways, and practicing 5 Rhythms over the last 23 years, is a corner stone in my Sadhana.
Thank you, thank you, thank you
I love you Gabrielle Roth.
