On Catherine’s 45th
birthday, she received the name Rubybear in a meditation.
She knew it was related to her totem animal, BEAR, and what her learning
was to be for the second half of her life. Since then she has been
learning her RUBYBEAR medicine, which relates to matters of the heart:
speaking heart truth, being strong within oneself, receiving the
sweetness of life, feeling compassion for all the earth’s beings and,
the latest theme, LIVING LARGE with an open heart.
