WALKING THE LAND with Elyn Aviva, Gary White and Eileen Nauman

November 7, 2019

Meet Elyn Aviva and Gary White. They have been “walking the land” for decades and publishing books on their findings as they explore sacred sites in Europe and Great Britain.
We’ll be working together in December and we’ll be posting photos and reports as they explore the Verde Valley/Sedona, Arizona area, where we live. Exciting!

Just wanted to share some exciting news: Gary and I will be traveling to the US in November to see friends and family—and to work with Eileen Nauman during December. (
Eileen’s new book, Walking the Land, will be released in January 2020, and she asked me to write a Forward for it. I’m very excited about the material she presents in her book. She is a family-lineage shaman through her father’s side of the family (Eastern Cherokee) and carries on the “medicine” (healing skill) for her generation. We share much in common. She discovered our POWER PLACES guidebooks ( and contacted us. (
We’ve had stimulating months exchanging information and experiences. There are not a lot of people (yet) who “walk the land,” and so finding another person who is doing something similar, is thrilling.

We’ll be working with Marchiene Reinstra, Eileen’s hiking partner, in the Verde Valley, doing much walking the land in the Red Rocks/Sedona, Arizona, area. Eileen will be sharing metaphysical techniques that she was trained for. And we’ll be sharing what we know (like dowsing). It’s a wonderful and energizing cross-pollination. While we have been doing our work in Europe and Great Britain, Eileen has been doing work in North, Central, and South America. We can hardly wait to get together and compare notes and techniques. And, for our Facebook audiences who are interested in how to work with sacred land, we will be sending out reports on our adventures to all of you. Stay tuned for photos of our coming adventures and explorations in Arizona!

Walking the Land with Me Podcasts

March 17, 2018

Hi Everyone! I’m going to be posting my podcasts on a little known area of my life. Having Eastern Cherokee heritage through my father’s side of the family, I was raised in the ‘old ways’ growing up. One of them was connecting and working with the land. In the Native American way of reality, “all our relations,” has a huge and important concept to us. It’s more than a ‘saying.’

All of our relations is that we believe all living things are part of a much larger family. Man is not at the pinnacle. Man is merely one thread of the weaving of Life on Mother Earth. And our ‘relations,’ include winged ones, four-legged, the fish, reptiles, the rocks, the rivers, the land itself, bushes, flowers, trees and anything else you can think of. I was taught at a very young age…seven years old, to ‘talk’ with my relatives. They were my other sisters, brothers, cousins, nephews and nieces.

Of course, talking with them was done either verbally or via telepathy. As a 7 year old I didn’t say that was impossible, because it was possible. I could ‘hear’ the tree talking to me, or a pebble I picked up on a dirt road and held in my hand. This growing up for me was a wonderful time because I had lots of parental trees who told me if something was dangerous to me or not, or a stream that warned me not to go into it because it was too deep and the current too powerful for me.

The concept for Walking the Land, and a subsequent book I’ve written on it (and it will be published later this year), entails information on how other people who love Nature, love hiking, love the land or perhaps are rock hounds, would enjoy knowing how to Walk it themselves, because you can.

I started this podcast Walking the Land with 15 minute segments about my experiences and how you can walk the land yourself. I put a new podcast up every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. MST (I live in Arizona and we do NOT have daylight savings time, fyi), on some element of Walking the Land.

If you find this interesting, please start with podcast #1 and proceed in order because I’m building a larger picture and how you can interact with the land and “all our relations,” too.
