Mia Feroleto has a heartwarming discussion with two leading lights in the online blogging community. Laura Bruno and Ann Kreilkamp share their knowledge and vast experience in the spiritual, healing, ET and permaculture realms as we navigate through these challenging times.
Ann Kreilkamp is a 77-year-old, full-fledged “crone,” a term she helped bring into the vernacular with her magazine Crone Chronicles: A Journal of Conscious Aging (1989-2001), now archived at www.sagewoman.com). In 1992 the magazine spawned the still ongoing annual Crones Counsel (www.cronescounsel.org). With a Ph.D. in philosophy, and working as a consulting and teaching astrologer since 1976, Ann over the decades Ann has ignited a number of social experiments, all of which aim to integrate the polarity between individual and community. The latest of these experiments is Green Acres Permaculture Village (www.greenacresvillage.org) where she now lives, in Bloomington, Indiana. Her book, This Vast Being: A Voyage through Grief and Exaltation (2006), will soon be joined by the results of her Recapitulation Project, the collection and sharing of literally hundreds of her essays, both published and unpublished, spanning the last 50 years. Ann’s entire life has been dedicated, she says, to “opening space,” by which she means seeing through any linguistic or organizational framework that we humans might dream up into the infinity beyond and within. You can find her near-daily commentary on both world and personal events at www.exopermaculture.com.
Laura Bruno is a Medical Intuitive, Reiki Master Teacher, Life Coach, professional Intuitive, author, and artist. A fateful 1998 traumatic brain injury shifted her intended life course from a professor of English Literature to a very different type of “reader.” Four years of near-total disability initiated her into deep meditation, shamanic journeying, herbal remedies, visual therapy, energy medicine, food vibrations, the power of prayer, and a world of uncanny synchronicity. In October 2001, as part of her own recovery process, Laura began helping others that traditional medicine and mainstream culture left behind — encouraging clients to rewrite their stories into more magical and soulful tales of liberation, creativity, empowerment and joy. Laura is a life long experiencer and holds an M.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Chicago. She completed her Permaculture Design Certificate in 2016.
