Margaret Morris is visioning a new civilization in which we honor ourselves outside of the mental programming of hierarchical thinking, and the archetypal stumbling blocks of the past millennium's perceptual foundations. Given the limited scope of currently available technological ability to measure subtlety, Ms. Morris recognizes that resulting empirical data cannot possibly provide a completely accurate account of reality. There's more to reality than science knows. S/he invokes the proverbial baobob tree to keep counsel with spiritual elders, ancestors, angels, elementals, and directly with God/dess in order to channel higher levels of awareness and serve ecological sustainability on Earth. Ms. Morris is an intuitive witch, multidisciplinary artist, consultant, facilitator and lifelong yogi.
