Not mentioned in the blog post below (I didn't want to wreck the ambience): when I bent over Nola to give begin her healing, I was carrying a small plate with charcoal & copal in one hand & a hawk wing in the other. The burning embers slid off the plate ~ no jumped off the plate ~ directly onto Nola's right eye (evidence below), luckily only for a moment, when, in it's entirety, the charcoal slid again to the carpet & BURNT A HOLE RIGHT THROUGH IT. Nola quietly & calmly made her way to the bathroom where she appeared to be fascinated with what might look like a black eye & then laid back down for her healing, bizarrely without complaint . . . just a little chuckle "& for about a hundred dollars, you could get healed too . . "
Which is true. It seemed to work quite well for her.
