Mandaza Medicine Man

I picked the drum with the painted moon and stars,
the dragonfly,
long time friends,
when I wore moccasins on my trail of tears,
but today

I am a shadow of a jaguar woman,
in the taught skin of the drum,
and the rhythm picks my bones
and the rhythm hides my eyes,

Mandaza speaks of dreaming
of ancestors, of aloneness
of a community of spirits alive
in the emptiness surrounding this
dark autumn night,
in the faraway land
of Strongsville, Ohio,

where the Clan of the Wounded
Healer, gather
there, in that Zimbabwe bonfire,

give life in the ashes of Light,
give thanks for all who have come before us,
who guide us with stories of how it was
before
we became dreamers.



(All we can ever give one another is our story of presence)

Love,
Anna







Those of us in a small, suburban town of Cleveland, Ohio had the priviledge
of sitting around a bonfire tonight (October 15, 2007) and visiting with one of
the most beautiful spirits on the planet, Mandaza, a medicine man from
Zimbabwe, a man whose vision, like our own, is healing and peace for our
planet. He also recognizes all cultures and all people as his family.

He is currently travelling in the United States. Starting tomorrow (Oct 16),
he will be in Indianapolis, Indiana, then onto Ashland, Oregon, Mt. Shasta,
California, Sedona, Arizona, Napa, California, and Laguna Beach, California.
Please see details of these travels at the following link.

no gomandaza.org/calendar.html

This is a not to be missed experience if you are fortunate enough to live
near any of the areas to which he is travelling.

A website is being created for him; however, the only thing up and running
at the moment is the "schedule". Should you wish to bring Mandaza to your
area on his return to the U.S. in 2008 or to whatever area you are in the world,
please contact the designated person at the link and she will be able to assist
your request.

Thank you for sharing this with others who might be interested.

Submitted in the spirit of peace and joy,
