 How to Find and Sell American Wild Ginseng - Owlcation

 In a Place of Wild Ginseng

In the language of the ancestors, a gore was a wedge-shaped area of land—the word originally meant a spearhead—bounded on two sides by other features. (You may recall that the Gore of Lothlórien was bounded by two converging rivers.) The Gore of Sweetwood is defined by two coulees (ravines), and wild ginseng grows there.

There, on the delta-shaped Ginseng Gore, with stones from the surrounding coulees, we will raise the Mother Cairn. In the earth beneath it will stand, facing the point, a terracotta image of the Mother herself, her holy delta lovingly modeled.

There will we lay the ashes of the dead.

A cairn is the ultimate in democratic architecture: anyone can add to it. So, through the years, the Mother Cairn will grow, like a pregnant belly, as more stones and ashes are added; it will be for us a place of memory, and rebirth.
