GREETINGS!


I am so glad you have come and are willing to spend a little bit of your time on my sacred website. I call it sacred becuse I consider all of life sacred - every bit of it, from teh animals that everyone loves to hate like skunks an dsnakes, to our own creative endeavors whethyer they be the arts, building new roads or doing finger painting witih our children

My intention for this site is to create a nature-oriented website to convey who I am, my love of the land and to share my writings and poetry. I offer my work here to nature lovers, those needing to find solace in nature, those interested in something outside of themselves or people visiting the Verde Valley area of north-central Arizona who might like to do something different in nature. Enjoy the photos, my writing and let me know if something here touches you. May you be blessed. Rita Faruki
 

ABOUT ME

Currently I reside in a little village in the rolling hills of Cornville, Arizona south of Sedona. I have lived in four Western states, as well as in Morocco, North Africa. I grew up in Ohio, with an Irish mother and a Palestinian father. I was raised Catholic, but now consider myself a Pantheist, one who see Spirit in everything. I also classify myself as a Native American-Zen-Pagan! This matches my values, as I find my God in my animal brothers and sisters, and my friends of the plant and rock worlds. Years ago I was given the name, "Beloved Protector of the Animals, She Who is One with the Animals." I am certified 2nd level Healing Touch, certified in 2nd Degree Reiki, and am a student of shamanism, as well as many other modalities like animal communication, the Emotional Freedom Technique and Native American ceremonies. I write poetry and articles about nature and animals. I feel so many people are divorced from the natural kingdoms, and it is my hope that my writing can assist people in coming back into balance and harmony with Nature. Like many people, I have had various careers: I was a teacher here and abroad, I worked in the aerospace industry and worked for The Nature Conservancy for twelve years. At this time of my life, my focus is on integrating all that I have learned and being of service to people in coming home to themselves. I have a variety of exercises and wonderful doings in nature that are designed to assist people in becoming still, balanced, and aware of the assistance the natural kingdoms have to give us. Come do a Sacred Earth Walk with me and find out how you can co-create a new life with the nature spirits! Read more specific information about my varied life experiences...
