Thank you so much for your courage and wisdom in this adventure. I have passed the site on to others.
I have started an email meditation group. We meditate on Sundays at noon, focusing on healing the planet, If you would like to be a part of this let me know.
This coming Sunday I will be meditiating on the Athabasca River and the brave team that you are.
Lovely writing. Very interesting subject. So powerful, yet sad -that there are those with so little regard for the beauty of the planet.
Thanks to each of you for making this heart-breaking journey and sharing it so eloquently. I shall share your report widely. Have you thought of getting it into a national publication? It deserved wide readership. I also send my sympathy, as you will have lasting sorrow for the loss of so much that you, and so many of us, love and treasure. Momentum might be on industry’s side, but we have divine energy on ours. Courage!
I have read the account of your journey from the beginning and have vicariously experienced the elation about the possibilities for your journey with the river and each other. I have also felt the depth of the despair at the colossal devastation at Fort McMurray and noted the grain of hope that there is still time for humans to do better.
Thank you for taking this pilgrimage on behalf of us all and for the splendid writing.
Thank you for your journal of these two weeks. Your words are moving and reinforce my stance against the tar sands and pipeline development.
Maureen I have loved reading about the Athabasca River Pilgrimage. I am also so honoured to be part of it, even if vicariously! Thank you so much for the very important work you are doing. My heart breaks daily at the thought of what has happened to such a beautiful and abundant place. One can only hope that somehow everyone gains the consciousness to understand we must stop ruining our planet.
I thought you would like to know you misspelled the word “dam” on your website. Silly mistakes are a pet peeve of mine, and they can ruin your website credibility. In the past, I have used a tool like SpellingScan.com to keep mistakes off my website.

About the Pilgrimage
A journey along the Athabasca River, from the Columbia Icefields to Ft. McMurray, the hub of the oil sands industry.
Traveling also to Ft. McKay, located along the banks of the river, where seven hundred First Nation people live, their lives poisoned and forever changed by this industry.
