Barb Lutz, aka Tribas, began her life’s purpose and Work in 2004 when she began creating altars and sacred spaces for Kim Duckett’s unique conceptualization of the Wheel of the Year as an earth-based psychology for women. You’ll most often find Barb’s altars on the ground in the center of a Circle of women celebrating the holydays, births, deathings, handfasting’s, and other life passages and are made entirely of intricate compositions of dirt/sand/rocks and other natural items. She has presented at and provided altars for ASWM, Modern Matriarchal Studies, National Women’s Music Festival, and the Reformed Congregation of the Goddess-International. Some of her altars can be seen at kimduckett.org and RCG-I’s Seasonal Salons. Barb’s muses are Nature, the work of Marija Gimbutas, and contemporary Archaeomythology. Barb is at work on a book of photographs of her altars, with additional text about her creative process.
