Sprite's Medicine Walk

Notice: Sprite's Medicine Walk is on Hiatus

Sprite's Medicine Walk seems to have always been given the gift of support from out of the blue at the most convenient time. This support indicated to me that no matter how frustrated or tired I might become with the work involved in maintaining Sprite's Medicine Walk that God wanted it to continue to be available to those in need. Recently that magical support hasn't been there, and I feel that it is God's signal to me that it is time to let it go.

Sprite's Medicine Walk was online for many years (1997-2002) and was well known on the net (at least in chat circles) for being one of the best nature palaces around. This is due to the work that was put into maintaining it, and the love that poured out to it's visitors through God's will. Wizards at Sprite's Medicine Walk were counseled to be in prayer before starting work so that they might ask for God's help to find the right words to say each time they chatted with someone in need. I am positive that, through His wisdom and grace, Sprite's Medicine Walk helped quite a few persons. Many times, wizards were able to talk someone down from suicide, or support them through trials, and all of us recognize that it was the work of God that helped this to be so. In that vein, I trust that if Sprite's Medicine Walk is to be open once more God will ensure that the funding, and the opportunity will arise to bring it around again. Until then the work and the concept will wait for the right time and audience.

I would like to extend sincere and heartfelt thanks to those in and out of the Palace Community who supported Sprite's Medicine Walk through it's stay on the net. Without all of you, Sprite's Medicine Walk would not have been as wonderful as it has been, and remains. Further, if anyone who helped with Sprite's Medicine Walk continues to see it's value, please send me a message to that affect. I would gladly give rights to the Medicine Walk to someone who both helped put it together, and has the time, the expertise, and the financial wherewithall necessary to maintain it.

I would also like to remind everyone that I and the other authors & artists who contributed content to Sprite's Medicine Walk still hold our copyrights, and will prosecute anyone who attempts to replicate Sprite's Medicine Walk either in part, or in it's entirety without my express knowlege.

The Sprite's Medicine Walk Yahoo Group will remain intact, and will be available for anyone who needs support, or help with finding medical references.

I will personally remain at least semi-active in the Palace Community, and I can still be reached via email, or ICQ.

Thank you for your interest and patronage!


An Introduction

Hi, I'm Sprite, a.k.a. TreeSprite.

In 1996, I was shown the wonders of a new kind of chat software called The Palace. I fell in love with the program instantly! I got to know people that I wouldn't normally have met, and I became a member of a worldwide community.

I also found out that there is more to the Palace software, than just chat. When I found out that I could create my own Palace I suddenly had a new purpose. I downloaded and installed the Palace Server Software, acquired a registration code for my Server, and set about the task of fulfilling my vision.

My vision was grand. Creating a palace of my own required me to try to attain several goals:

  1. To provide an environment of trust, love, and respect so that all visitors would feel welcomed.
  2. To encourage users to learn about, come to understand, and respect the ways of others who live in this world with us.
  3. To offer hosted chat events in which users could participate, and learn about physical health, mental health, and spirituality.
  4. To create and maintain a safe environment so that visitors going through a personal crisis could feel at home and supported.
  5. To provide a relaxing place to visit so that visitors could experience the world that was here before the realm of work and stress that we humans created.
  6. To educate others about the wonders and beauty of nature, and encourage them to help preserve the treasures of the earth.
  7. To look for a way to make the Palace available, and manned twenty-four hours a day so that all the above goals would be facilitated.

To the right is an example of The Palace chat software. This particular scene takes place in the "Listening Lake" room in Sprite's Medicine Walk with (From Left to Right) Lancer Domino, Sprite (That's Me!) , Tiny, and my husband Corwyn.

As you can see, sometimes the conversation, and the funning can get way out of hand. Still, I think that one should have a sense of humor, and be able to take the time to relax and have fun with friends new and old, and the Palace software is the best program for this that I've found.

I hope that you will take the time to visit Sprite's Medicine Walk. I am personally available to talk to anyone about incest, abuse, multiple personality disorder, and manic depression. I am a survivor of both incest and abuse, and have lived with family members who were diagnosed with multiple personality disorder and manic depression. I can offer support to persons who have a family member with these disorders. I am not a qualified medical or mental health professional but I am a loving and caring person who has been through hell myself, and I enjoy being able to offer support to anyone who wants an understanding ear. Visit Sprite's Medicine Walk and come enjoy the beauty and the love!
