We have a most incredible group of people joining us in our Thanksgiving lodge on December 1. Space has been filling quickly for this special day of gratitude to Mother Earth and her wondrous bounty. As I look back on the many lodges I well remember one in particular with Walking Thunder, the Dine Medicine Woman and one of Mother Earth's most wonderful teachers. There was a very large man, well over 6 feet who came out at the end of the lodge and he was weeping openly. I had never met him before and I ran up to see if he was OK. He just looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, "Pati, I've had a terrible rash on my body for more than 15 years....and it is gone"
