Dhyani Ywahoo

27th Generation Cherokee Teacher, Founder of Sunray Meditation Society in Vermont

"We can listen to the voice of the Earth as she shakes and sings her song expressing her tiredness. She is calling us to attention, to be alert, to recognize that now is the time to transform selfish thought and action to compassionate caretaking. Do we want a world of peace and harmony? Are we willing to make that peace within ourselves? Will we call it forth? It is your choice. Your thought and action make a difference."

"Every human being has an obligation to return to this planet and to all our relations the sound of beauty, the power of prayer, the sense of harmony."
