Bare feet, firmly pressed to the earth,
Grounded, connected, and balanced,
Right here, right now, in this time and space.
I feel myself stretch down deeply like roots,
Beyond the rocks and waters,
Searching and connecting to the Ancestors.
I call to those who stood on this land before me,
and built the roads I walk along.
Guide my footsteps, show me the path.
Grant me the wisdom of your many lives.
