“Ruth Thompson Talks About Her Work” – A short video made at Hilina Pali on the Big Island of Hawai’i, on the Winter Solstice in 2014:


Quickwater Oracles is published!
A channeled message from Crow.
Bear speaks to Ruth.


A wonderful conversation with poet Diane Gilliam about the possibilities of a “new order of poetry” and about fairy-tale-like “helpers” in Quickwater Oracles.

I read a few of the channels and Diane chose This.Here.Now as a blessing to end the hour.

Writer-editor Barbara Ann Yoder and poet-channel Ruth Thompson talk about Quickwater Oracles and the usefulness of these encouraging messages to writers and artists. Ruth reads some of Barbara’s favorite channels and answers questions from other writers in attendance.
Ruth Thompson and Tania Pryputniewicz talk about Ruth’s newest book, Quickwater Oracles; Tania gives a Heart’s Compass Tarot reading for Quickwater, and Ruth reads some channels from the book.
Jendi Reiter of Winning Writers (author of An Incomplete List of My Wishes, Two Natures, Bullies In Love, and other books) and Ruth Thompson talk about channeling, Jendi’s study of magick, making art and writing inspired by Quickwater Oracles, and their plans for making oracle cards based on phrases from the book. Ruth reads and Jendi shares collage work she has done in response.
Esther Cohen joins me to celebrate the launch of Quickwater Oracles! Esther asks some great questions, I read some of the channels and give a guided meditation leading into a short writing session, and some of the writers attending read their pieces. A great start to the new year!
