Leaves From the Central Tree

Book of Short Stories


is a mythic seven-fold creation about creation. Seven Chambers combine to form a multi-dimensional story of the fall, the shadow, the quest for light, and the re-emergence into a wider story, a deeper game, a more encompassing creation.

Seven characters – a teacher, a young elf, a goddess who becomes a slave, an owl mage, an author, a seer and a hooded entity all discover what it means to "Leave an Original Creation" and why the shadow is an integral part of the whole. Seven characters – or are they one character living on seven different dimensions? – each express their fundamental selves, get caught up by the cosmic plot, and face the Ancient Enemy.


Seven Myths – each a primal blueprint, each a level in the story, each a dimension of reality – are both separate stories and yet unify as one work.

SPOKEN WORD

Galloping Before the Thunder


Galloping Before the Thunder explores the concept of how what we love can break us open to the wild unfathomable Mystery. It narrates a journey of falling in love and a deep human longing for intimacy and connection.

It plays with the idea that loving is an alchemical act of freedom that can both wound and wing us, and that both the expansiveness of yes and the limitations of no are part of the inexplicable experience of love.


Luminous Leaves is the collaboration of Leaf @thehelixlibrary & @NivPoet and is a wing of the Helix Library. This video is for sale as an NFT on Foundation.

"A creature once broke my heart with beautyruined my capacity to settleDestroyed my tolerance for chains"

You are the Art


This spoken word film explores the concept that self-creation is art. The way we live our lives, the way we perceive reality and the way we love—are deeply creative acts that contribute to the luminous version of our Self that we share with others.

In the Great Work of alchemy, expanding consciousness and becoming human—we are both the Artist and the Art. Let's Restore Love on the Planet. This spoken word rich media film is available to purchase as an NFT on Foundation

"An invitation to open your chestfrom the inside"

Things to do if you are the Air


Breath is the lifeforce of all creatures and in some traditions is considered the presence of soul. It animates our very existence upon this planetary home. Breath is the channel to the original source: it re-sources us. Air is the common-wealth of all beings and it unites all of us
