About rain crowe / Village Mystery School & Dream Temple

Well-come, thank you for making your way here. We've transformed recently into this portal of village connection and are glad you found us.

Take some time to breathe a breath, and let your imagination – a language of spirit – have some space to dance.


I belong to a cadre of magical-cultural artists dedicated to serving the descendants of Life by supporting a spectrum of communities in growing their resilience, imagination, and intimacy.

I belong to a clan of web-weavers, walk-betweens, and edge-tenders who continually collaborate in the embodiment of an emerging earth culture, rooted in the re-membered, regenerative, relational practices of the ancestors.

I belong to a lineage of experienced educators, facilitators, activists, story-tellers and priestesses of Earth-based spirituality. I belong to all beings with whom I share accountable relationships, at a radical land project in Portland, Oregon.

I belong to the source of creation, as I work and play in strategic visioning; focusing on how the Great Spell: the all-encompassing, uncompromising collective liberation that is our birthright, may continue to move through the vessel of me and my kith and kin.

I belong to the spirit-spoken call of unequivocal commitment to ecological interdependence and decolonization. And not least of all, I belong to keeping temple in the woods behind my home, where I am held in the company of Mystery.

Of blood, I am most recently from the Midwest, settled onto the ancestral lands of the Calumet people. And before them, from the lands of Poland, Croatia, and Ukraine. I belong by adoption to the Briton and Germanic peoples, and I’ve been learning about my bloodlines and adopted genealogies and heritages for over a decade.

Currently I live on the ancestral lands of the Multnomah, Clackamas, and Tualatin Kalapuyan peoples of Chinook nation- the lands of the salmon, cedar, camus, huckleberry, acorn, and so many more beings. Here, at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers, I inhabit a small home on the edge of a woods with my wyld neighbors.

I share land-tending on a seven-acre project committed to equity, justice, regenerative culture, and spiritual expression. Here together, we tend gardens, goats, and each other, through a lived promise of learning how to enact solidarity and work through internalized patterns of oppression.

Over the last thirty years I have studied political movements, comparative religion, cultural anthropology, systems thinking, trauma-counseling, group and interpersonal conflict transformation, the histories of oppression, survivor advocacy, witchcraft, magic, and ritual.
My learning path includes formal university, Bolad’s Kitchen, the Reclaiming Tradition, continuing educational programs, and life as an out cisqueer-femme, raised working-poor, white-privileged, and disabled edge-walker. I am most grateful for all of my teachers with whom I’ve studied, learn from every person (human and beyond) I meet, and am committed to a humble wisdom path.

Currently I earn my livelihood as an ancestral connection guide, group process facilitator, conflict worker, ritual priestess, spiritual advisor, consultant, and educator through a series of courses, programs, trainings, and mentorships about content at the intersection of radical political history/engagement and animist spiritual connection.

I belong to these times of unraveling, of empire crumbling, and the returning. I am compelled to explore enduring questions about how some of us as modern human creatures came to be in estrangement and disenchantment, and how we can leave a living world for the ones yet to come by reviving interdependence and re-enchantment rooted in the knowingness of the preciousness of our existence. I create evocative, potent, and necessary works rooted in spiritual service for individuals and groups to explore, understand, integrate, and act upon. I am a conjurer and a curator of containers and constellations of bright and willing participants ready to metabolize their griefs, face fear of uncertainty, and do complex shadow work for necessary changes. My work is grounded in anti-oppression theory and praxis and is explicitly focused on dismantling injustice for shared liberation and well-being.

The visions of Village Mystery School and Dream Temple are in need of resources and focused time to come to be.


As a vessel for creativity, woven with the animate web of life, my allegiance is to the good earth, our only Home, and I am guided by the star beings, those luminous reminders of our infinite potential. I know together we can find a physical home for the school, we can breathe into the development of our infrastructure, and we can grow a refuge in the perfect storm of collapse from the compost of all forms of supremacism.

Thank you for reading. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your support in whatever way it may come.


Blessings on your home and health, on your people, and your gifts. Blessings on your dreams and your path. May it be clear, may you move with assured grace. May you receive kindness and be protected from all harms.

Goals
68% complete
This goal helps me with basic material security.

Fulfillment of this goal supports me to afford to stay in my lovely, modest home (250 square feet) and have electricity/propane/wood for stove, to insure and maintain my lovely, modest car (1992 subie), to have access to reliable healthy food, and to procure amenities of life. This goal also helps me to pay off the debt accrued over the summer of no income due to the pandemic in which I was sustained by friends and comrades, most of whom need to have that resource returned as it comes back in my direction.
Thank you so much for this level of support. I'm so grateful.
