Arcana & Embarkment


In the old tales it’s the one that bends their head to the Otherly, or the strange, 

or the outcast that gets led to the water of life and so proves redemptive to culture.

                                       –Martin Shaw

Aims & Benefits


    The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention.
                                    –Julia Cameron


The Hedge Guild Oracle can help us to:  Increase sense of presence and enjoy increased mindfulness.  Better explore personal direction and our own unique path.  Deepen awareness and understanding of natural authentic self.  Awaken bodily senses, learning to better sense the world we are an integral part of, see more patterns and beauty, hear more exquisitely, taste every nuance of our food, savor even the mundane details of our mortal lives.  Explore the so called “sixth sense,” including resonant empathy and innate intuition.  Tap into bodily knowing and primal instinct.  Grow our sense of place... of family, home, land, ecosystem and bioregion.  Further our awareness of and active relationship to the natural, revelatory world.  Recognize the intrinsic nature of and animating force in everything, and every thing’s intrinsic value apart from human use.  Increase our sense of self worth and confidence, based on our true abilities rather than imposed or imagined characteristics and gifts.  Come to better understand our fears, and how to use them as markers for what needs our attention, as fuel to act, to change what needs changing.  Realize that we are a co-creators of not only our reality but our world, and commit to acting accordingly.  Discover how to give back to the earth that provides and inspires.  Learn how to grow from every mistake or misdirection.  Get beyond victimhood and the attachment to escape or distress.  Extricate ourselves from unhealthy habits, expectations, judgments and ways of thinking.  Develop healthy attachments to life, spirit, values and missions.  Make every moment a decisive moment, and take responsibility for what we both do and don’t do.  Reawaken a childlike sense of wonder and connection.  Learn how to best utilize our gifts and skills for the good of the greater whole.  Discover how to actively fulfill our most meaningful purpose.  Positively affect, even in small ways, everyone we meet.  Make our environs more healthy, beautiful and natural, as we heal, express and manifest our natural selves.  Learn to better celebrate and greater savor.  Become enlightened – about what matters most to us and to our deeply walked missions.

 

Such enlightenment is casting a light, not only on outward form, but on the inner recesses of a truth or being.  It is the intense experience of conscious interconnectedness, the wordless timeless thrill of being propelled into realization, relationship and responsibility, challenge and delight …even in the face of the darkest of nights.  It isn’t meant to spare us any lesson or assignment.  Instead it thrusts us into the pulsing fabric of a rhythmic, patterned universe.... and in this way, back into the fullest living of our purposed and manifest, spiritual and magical lives.

The Creators

Kiva Rose & Jesse Wolf Hardin created this Oracle at their sanctuary in the wilderness of southwestern New Mexico, a wildlife and botanical sanctuary seven river crossings from the nearest pavement and a hundred miles of uninhabited forest from the closest little city.  They have been sharing their enchantment and passions through their plethora of books, along with their periodicals Plant Healer Quarterly and the free Herbaria Monthly available at the Plant Healer website.  


Kiva & Wolf each wrote sections of The Hedge Guild Otherworld Deck, and Wolf is the designer and creator of all of its illustrations. 


Kiva Hardin is a writer, herbalist, myth-maker, folklorist, botanical perfumer, wife and devoted mother, and homestead-tender.  She is the much loved author of hundreds of articles about plants, medicinal herbs, and the mythos of nature and the fae.  Her series of deeply moving books begins with the acclaimed Weedwife’s Remedy: Folk Herbalism For The Hedgewise.


Wolf Hardin is a mind-stirring ecosopher, enraptured father and husband, artist and writer, counsel, musician, activist, historian, presenter and storyteller – the author of over 1,000 published articles and more than 25 books including Wonderments, Kindred Spirits, The Practice of Herbalism, The Healing Terrain, The Medicine Bear and The Plant Healer’s Path, available through the online Plant Healer Bookstore and from distributors including Amazon.


Together they have long served the rewilded Anima Sanctuary’s riparian ecosystem, encouraging the reintroduction of native herbs, providing a refuge for the myriad wildlife, raising their Aelfyn Wolfson Thorn and Inga Winter, enchanted by the magic revealed through a life of purpose in the bosom of the tale-telling natural world.
