The older I get, the more in love I am with Nature.
Maybe my spirituality is becoming more grounded. Or maybe it’s because I feel such a strong connection with indigenous consciousness. Whatever the case, I am so grateful for this natural world.
Here are the areas where my passions lie right now:
1. How can we preserve and protect this precious Earth and all her creatures?
2. How can we honor and remember the people who came before us, the First People who treated this good Earth with such respect?
3. And related to both of the above is the following: How can we hold a vision of a beautiful future?
Many people think I’m crazy to dare to imagine a beautiful future. They see all that is wrong in the world and they feel overwhelmed with despair. I am not immune to the problems of the world; I definitely see them. But whenever possible, I like to focus on the Light. I prefer to focus on the beauty, the kindness, the love. There are ample examples of the Good; it just never gets the same publicity. I believe we should all do what we can to make the world a better place, and… let’s not get so consumed with all that is wrong that we lose sight of all that is Good.
One thing you’ll be reading a lot about in my blog is a Pilgrimage or Sacred Journey that I completed in 2022. Long story short, I traveled the country, exploring some of the ancient, sacred sites and offering prayers at “the wounded” places, places where very sad and painful things have happened. (You can read more about it in my first blog entry.) Along the way, I also saw a lot of beauty, reconnected with friends, and experienced a lot of grace.
Secondly I’ll be sharing about things we each can do to help make space for the sweet creatures of this Earth, small and large. We’ve gotten used to thinking that we’re royalty and that we have “dominion over” the Earth. A more compassionate and sustainable attitude is that we are part of Nature and we are all related. What Chief Seattle said was absolutely right: “Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together.”
I like to write, I like to do inspirational speaking, I like to take pictures, and sometimes I make art. I’ll be sharing a little bit of all of that. Meanwhile, you can find out about Events, Workshops, Seminars, Talks, and Presentations, below. Or you can check out some of my videos on my YouTube channel. (Cynthia Greb) I especially recommend this one: “Living as if the World is Sacred.” Watch HERE. You can also find inspirational videos of my talks HERE, including Loving this Earth, Being Light, Angels in our Midst–Human and Otherwise, and The Most Important Things Aren’t Things. Also, listen to podcasts HERE, including: We All Have a Spiritual Support Team, How Can We Birth a New Earth (Or, Co-creating the Shift We Yearn to See), The Power of Pilgrimage, Transforming Our Fear of Death, and Communing with the Spirits. You can also find me on Facebook. If you’d like to purchase a copy of my book Grief and Grace: Stories at the Intersection of Life and Death, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, when you’re feeling discouraged, remember the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Be the Love. Be the Light.
Bless you all,

Speak at The Celebration, Santa Fe, NM
“Communing with the Spirits”
Cynthia Greb shares about her experiences visiting sites where there were acts of great sadness and horror. She goes to these places in order to offer prayers and help the spirits to move on to a place of peace. Specifically, she talks about the nation’s largest “Indian Boarding School” in Carlisle, PA; the site of a massacre of 96 peaceful Christianized Lenape and Mohican at Gnadenhutten, OH; and the infamous massacre of more than 160 Cheyenne and Arapaho at Sand Creek, CO. But the experience at Carlisle ended up being delightful and was a great learning experience which informed her work at other “wounded places.” To date she has offered prayers and ritual at twelve different sites across the country.

Talk at Pebble Hill Church, Doylestown, PA. 10:30 a.m. EST
“The Art and Practice of Pilgrimage”
Have you ever thought about going on a pilgrimage in our own country? There are many sacred places in the United States. Cindy Greb will be sharing some of the adventures, highlights, challenges, and instances of grace she experienced on her 6-month-long journey around the country, from which she has recently returned. She’ll also share some of the powerful places where we can enter into stillness and offer prayers–like ancient earth mounds built by people well over 1000 years ago, other natural and manmade sacred sites, and some of the many places where the First People were massacred and where their spirits may still not be at peace.
She’ll also answer the questions: What was her impetus for going? And what was her take-away as she headed toward home? And how can sacredness and connection with the Divine be a part of whatever we do, wherever we are?

Seminar for Susan Duval Seminars, Doylestown, PA. 2 – 4:00 p.m. EST
“The Mystery of America’s Earth Mounds”
Did you know there are thousands of earth mounds in this country? And most of them are between 1000 and 2000 years old. Why don’t we learn about these incredible structures in school? Why do our history classes all begin with a certain European explorer accidentally stumbling upon our continent? There was already a multitude of people, cultures, and traditions on this soil. Shouldn’t we know a bit about them? In this seminar, you will be introduced to the different kinds of mounds found throughout the Midwest and the South. Some are singular, some are in clusters, and sometimes there is evidence of large ancient cities like Cahokia in Illinois and Moundville in Alabama. Other mounds are in the shapes of animals or even, in one case, possibly an alien.
Who built them, and why? And why were most of them mysteriously abandoned around 1500 AD?
Cynthia Greb has recently returned from a six-month-long journey around the country, exploring earth mounds and offering prayers at ancient, sacred sites.
(This will be part I of a 3-part series. Stay tuned for explorations of sacred Mt. Shasta, stories of extra- and intraterrestrial beings, and invitations to honor the spirits of those who died—particularly Native Americans.)
