June O’Brien lives in the northwestern corner of the United States. A member of the Nansemond Tribe, she is a dream consultant with degrees in psychology and counseling, and has published two books of poetry.
She is from a culture in which seeing spirits, visiting with them, and being summoned by them is not unusual. She knows the spiritual medicine of wild plants, gathers them and makes medicine for the body and for the soul.
When in the forest, or the mountains gathering medicine, she knows that sometimes a spirit comes. It may seem only a sudden shift of the light, a spooky shiver, or a shadow between the trees.
Or, if you are fortunate, you may see a spirit-creature fully revealed. If that happens, it may follow you home, tell you a story. Maybe you will have no peace until you’ve written what it says. Maybe it will change your dreams, send your life in a strange new direction.
