Gr'mother Terry Eaton Memorial
The panther has long been a symbol of courage, strength, and mystery. Myths and legends of panthers of all kinds are to be found from ancient Egypt to Greece, from Africa into medieval Europe and Asia, and throughout North and South America. These stories have informed, frightened, and entertained people for millenia. In the physical world, the black panther is a rare color variant of the jaguar. Its rarity adds to the mystique of this secretive spirit.
In the metaphysical world, the black panther is associated with the moon, and with the inner dimensions of our spirits. We hear the communcations of other dimensions and life forms. We heal old wounds, release old issues, and shift our consciousness through the feminine power of the night. Both men and women are reborn into our true place in the universe. The panther is our guardian and our partner in this rebirth and transformation.
Here at the home of The Panther
Lodge Medicine Society, in the heart of the Ozarks, a black panther has been
seen by visitors. It is fitting and intriguing that the panther has shown
itself as the archetype for our our organization. Join us on our journey
of discovery, as we create and manifest our future.
