The Hermit

The Hermit searches for answers to internal questions, seeking greater understanding and wisdom, wanting the truth at all cost and comfort.
 Sedona, the landscape of red spires and mesas, has become a true melting pot of many different peoples and faiths. Perhaps enticed by the idea of experiencing a vortex, energy field or by the stunning beauty of Sedona’s red rocks, people have come from all over the world and brought their spiritual backgrounds with them to share with others who are on a healing path. The result of this is that Sedona now contains an abundance of areas which people use as tools or focal points for spiritual exploration, for their own healing process or just to foster inner peace all grafted together in a universal spirituality.

The sacred healing hand may be one of the oldest symbols known to be used in spiritual practices. Reflected in the natural world, the spiral is found in human physiology, plants, minerals, animals, energy patterns, weather, growth, death, thus all of these components combine to create the whole of Mother Earth and cosmos, a living entity. It is a symbol that reminds us of our evolving journey in life. The hand represents the creative power of the Divine Feminine. Together, they can bring awakening and healing to the self and the world!

The Hermit is holding a travelers staff with an entwining snake carving on it. As a spirit animal or totem, the snake has always represented knowledge and wisdom. One of the oldest symbols uses the snake eating its own tail in a circle symbolizing the earth womb and continuality. A traditional symbol of healing and compassionate care that western medicine uses to this day promoting education and positive aspects as opposed to evil.

The controversial and still artificially forbidden ancient universal plant Cannabis is depicted prominently in the image connecting the spiritual plane to the terrestrial. An anamorphic healing plant that most past cultures and societies have respected through the ages of antiquity and now being rediscovered in truth helping to heal and enlighten.
