About Dorethy Hancock

Dorethy Hancock retired early as a Reference Librarian in Topeka, Kansas, in order to do something different: specifically to help raise consciousness about living in a healthy, earth-friendly environment and leaving a “light footprint.”

She built an earthen home during the summers of 2003 and 2004, treading in the mud and literally “hand-sculpting” the house, finishing it with artistic expressions of bas relief designs on the walls. The home is located on 30 acres of woods and prairie on the Potawatomi Indian Reservation north of Topeka.

Dorethy’s education concentrated first on music, then on achieving a B.A. in English Literature and an M.L.S. in Librarianship. She has a varied background of interests encompassing farm life, home economics (sewing, food preservation, etc.), music, philosophy, psychology, world cultures and religions, shamanic traditions, travel, sacred geometry, and, most currently, sound healing, having attained practitioner certification with the Tama-Do Academy of Sound, Color and Movement in Malibu, California and France.
