“Miracles are natural wonders that we can all recognize when they appear—the unexpected healing, the inexplicable shift in our mood, the reunion, the reconciliation, the car that suddenly starts again, the phone call out of the blue, the windfall, the reprieve, the sunbeam on a gray day, the blossom, the field of wildflowers where once was only asphalt and debris. Miracles can grow anywhere there is a seed and a little bit of dirt—but how do we find those seeds and plant them?

“In my book Take Back the Magic: Conversations with the Unseen World I show how we can take the seeds of desire in our hearts and plant them in the underworld for our ancestors to tend. The dead know how seeds need to break open, sprout, root, and can guide those tender shoots towards the sun through the darkness. But how do we water and tend these seeds? How do we collaborate with the dead? And how do we trust the rhythms of the season as we grow our miracles?

“On the one hand, collaborating with the dead is simple: we ask them for help and they offer it. On the other, anything having to do with those on the other side can bring up so many questions and confusions and concerns. We don’t often talk about these matters in our everyday lives—and yet all of those souls are happy to help us with our everyday concerns.

“In this special discussion for those who have pre-ordered my book Take Back the Magic: Conversations with the Unseen World I’ll share some miraculous gardening tips, some magical horticultural folklore, and answer lots of questions about how we can, with the help of the dead, cultivate so many wonders in our lives. I hope you will join me on this adventure!”

All beings are blossoms
