“I try to offer a down to earth re-connection to our selves and our spiritual connection to the universe through sharing, ceremony, and seeing ourselves as an integral part of the all creation. This universal love is the greatest healing element in our universe. My work is more universal than tied to one specific tradition, tho I primarily practice the ceremonies and indigenous traditions of the Americas. “

tribute to Grandmother Sara Smith
crossed over march 24, 2015
I just got a call from Karen to say that Grandmother Sara finished her transition to the other side a few hours ago, about 1;30 in the morning I think. Karen said that she has been traveling the spirit world a lot the last couple of years. It is sad news for us, but of course freeing for her. Sara has been in a nursing home for some time now. We have known dear Grandmother for many years now, and have been very blessed by her loving energy and beautiful teachings. right now, I am looking at a photo that just happened to be on the floor near my of Sara with Tlakaelel, Steve, and Mary Thunder in Thunder's garden taken some years ago. Sara will get to hang out with Tlakaelel now. They always had a very close connection as fellow Elders. We were together the first time on the infamous Wolfsong tour of Europe in about 1997, and saw her many times since then, in Texas, Switzerland, France, Italy, and many other places. We were able to visit her at her home and center up at Six Nations one time, and she even came to our Peace and Dignity camp here a few years ago. Sara had such a powerful spirit and beautiful messages for us all. She ;love all children and I can picture many sitting on her lap. I can also see in my mind, Sara smudging down the beautiful room at Schweibenalp in Switzerland with powerful strokes of her feathers. I remember too, a funny tour we took with Tlakaelel and her to a crazy theme park in Switzerland created by Erick Von Daniken. we all laughed a lot. She and I talked many times on the phone and I was always warmed by her soft voice and great love for all. She has touched so many people, and her presence will always be with us. The last few years has been hard for her, and she has not been able to travel for some time. Now she can. I am putting one of her talks (she allowed me to record her talk, and her family gave me permission to post it) on our Kalpullichaplin.com website, as well as just a few pictures. Please keep her family in your prayers, her husband Roger, son Rocky, daughter Karen, grand daughter Holly, and the others, as well as all who knew and loved her. All who met Grandmother will remember her beautiful voice bathing us in her love, the love of Creator, passing thru her. I know she will be loving us from the other side.
Here is an MP3 recording (with hers and family's permission) of an introductory talk she gave at Schweibenalp, Switzerland during the Universal Peace Celebration in 2007.
HERE ARE A FEW PHOTOS FROM 2007 TO 2009
We have begun the monumental task of transferring 22 years of video documentary of Tlakaelel's talks, ceremonies, travels, etc. if you would like to help review videos for content, etc, please let us know.
here is a nice clip I found.

A PERFECT DAY TO DIE
hello friends, at his request, for some time now, I have been giving a talk on Tlakaelel's passing. Many people have been touched by the story with pictures of his voyage from this world of the flesh to the great unknown (unknown to us at least). many have asked me to do a film or book on his last day, so I have finally started. This may turn out to be a video as well as a book, and more on this website. I just have to keep plugging awayat it. Here is the introduction, which gives a bit on why I am doing this.Thank you for your interest.
A perfect day to Die
The Grandfather's last day
For years, I knew this day would come, but I did not expect it this time. This is a story that goes back a very long time - at least 712 years, but I will tell just the recent part. I am going to tell you about the death -passing to the other side, passing over, transitioning, transforming, returning to the Creator, reintegrating with the All, etc.- of a quite remarkable man known as Tlakaelel. There is so much to tell, that it could take many books, but I will mostly focus on his last days and the lessons this time brought me, and perhaps can bring you as well.
Why would I write so much about a death? What relevance does this have for you, or for our society? Is it not just a personal story? "Why did Tlakaelel insist on my recording his words the last day, and insist that I take many pictures? He wanted to make an example of a different way to die, and a different way to see death, not as something that should not happen, but as a natural passing, a natural leaving this world for the next one.

Tlakaelel on 2012: We are living enormous changes. We are suffering grand catastrophes, we are seeing the painful birth of a new epoch. For the year 2012, we see a special position of planets in our solar system. They say that in at this time, the Mayan calendar will end. The world will not end. This era will end. There will be a change. This will present a possibility for us to understand that all the beings on this planet are our brothers because the same father created us - the great spirit. The butterflies, the plants and all that exists, all the elements. We are all one thing. We all are Cosmos. We are the universe. All who are born here, all the human beings, we are terrestrials. We are born on this planet. This planet is our homeland. It is our home. What happens in any part of our planet at any time strongly affects us all. Precisely now, the changes are coming, and we know that the butterflies keep flying. It does not matter if the climate is changing. It is not important. Whatever happens, happens. It is an example for the human beings that we can come together. We can act as the animals do by their instincts according to the destiny that great spirit has given us all. I give thanks for this opportunity to communicate this message of universality. We are all universal beings. We are connected. We are butterflies, all human beings.
Thank you very much.
