Pink Lady's Slipper is a rare native Orchid which grows in the Northeast. After a twenty-nine year search, I recently reencountered her. This is a sharing of some of the lessons which I have learned from her. (I have learned more and I know that there are many more to come.)
Someone asked me, "Was the wait worth it?" The short answer: “YES!” The real answer is that I have learned there wasn’t a wait, there was a journey. Had I met Pink Lady’s Slipper before this day, it would not have been the same experience. The dreams, the shamanic journeys, my life events, even the walk up the mountain all contributed to the magic.
