Mourning Dove Effigy Mound

Posted by Picasa"This effigy mound is a spiritual place where you can come and let your Mother, the Earth, hold you. Let the children play on it. Dance on it. Use it to unload your grief and pain. Let it renew and strengthen you. Lay back in the soft fold of it's wings, and let Mother Earth unburden you. Then get up and leave your troubles and cares on the mound, as you walk away renewed and refreshed." John A. Beaudin 1946-1993

The snow is melting, enough to uncover the Mourning Dove Effigy Mound. In the summer they mow it just a bit longer than the rest of the field, and it is visible. This is a sacred place, the Highground. It is a healing place, as I have said, many times before. People from all over the world come here to renew themselves, and to mourn for themselves, and for their loved ones.
