Two-Spirit Spirituality Revisited

It feels like a good time to repost this piece which I published February 2014.

I have known for a very long time about the tradition of gender-variant shaman among Native American peoples primarily in North America, and recently I felt moved to research further.  This poem is the fruit of my research and prayer.  I dedicate it to my dear friend Jim, the extroverted gay mystic, who gave this gift at the hardest of times to a church which could not receive it.

    • Why, thank you, Esther. It’s always good to share presence with you on these pages. I can hear Violet chanting and the drums beating. We must let her out.
