Poem: Beautiful Child

HOZHO

Beautiful Children, we are

All of us
From the EAST, born spiritually holy
Created of the air, fire, water and earth with divine light and love

Beautiful Youth, we are
All of us
From the SOUTH, we learn how to make a living to travel in life

Beautiful Parents, we are
All of us
From the WEST, we gather to celebrate spiritual family love
our fireplace, hearth and home in ceremony

Beautiful Grandparents, we are
All of us
From the NORTH, we renew
SELF-Reverence and Reverence for Mother Earth and Father Sky

Beautiful people, we are
All of us
Traveling the four corn-pollen footsteps with all our relatives
All is created in beauty

About Patricia Anne Davis, MA Choctaw-Navajo/Chahta-Dineh

My English name is Patricia Anne Davis, MA and my ceremonial name is used only for personal ceremony. It translates to "peacemaker" or "one who greets others with peace". I have spent a life time learning and practicing healing knowledge and processes, beginning with my own father, who was a medicine person who made his lifetime priority healing three generations of people in ceremonies. He was my teacher from birth in the home and in ceremonies until his transition in 1983. I earned a BA in Psychology from the University of AZ and an MA in Whole System Design, the language and techniques of creative change, from the Center for Creative Change at the Antioch University in Seattle, WA. I worked in the Health and Human Services profession in every position in the continuum of care for Behavioral Health, Social Services and Mental Health for over 20 years. I am an original writer of "The Beauty Way Curriculum" K-12 Prevention Education for alcohol and other drug recovery and wellness restoration in both the English and Navajo language, published in 1990. Currently, I am in private practice as a Practitioner and Diagnostician and also an International Teacher and Consultant of Navajo/Dineh blessingway ceremonial healing principles that are cross-cultural, inter-generational, inclusive and universal in practical application.
