An Ode to Wild Woman

An Ode to Wild Woman (on Wrekin hill). Wandering the wild took her closer to home; it allowed her to find more than she’d ever known. As the wind swept on by she started to see more than views on high, she saw what she could be. Wild and free. Wild and free. Her feet…

The Importance of Getting Lost

I went to a riveting panel discussion recently regarding our relationship with Nature.  We’re not talking about gardens here, or pleasure walks at the local National Trust: we’re talking about wild, non-cultivated, unencumbered, there-might-be-a-bear-in-the-woods Nature.  One of the speakers, Nina Lyon, made a comment about our inability to get truly lost in our home country…

New Zealand: South Island Highlights

As many of you will know, earlier this year I spent a few months travelling solo around New Zealand.  What a powerful way to kick-start the year, and a very deep and personal inner journey too! That inner journey is still ongoing and very raw, and though I have already shared some of that with…

Poem: ‘The Moon Goddess’

‘The Moon Goddess’ She dances on silver beams, with sparkles of starlight in Her hair, Her heart swells with the tides, and in the stillness of night, She is radiant with magic. ~*~*~ In the twilight skies, She before us appears, a beacon of softness and rest and good dreams. And while we lie sleeping, above…

Mindfulness and Presence

I just wanted to share a few pictures that I have taken over the last couple of days that show us just how beautiful our country of England is, but also remind us to be mindfully present to that beauty at all times. When finishing work on Tuesday, I could have just driven straight home…

Autumn and the Chakras

I absolutely adore autumn; it is my favourite season of all. I love the smells, the harvest, the clear blue skies and crisp air.  But, most of all, I love the colours.  And it seems (from my Instagram feed at least) that nearly everyone else is captivated too! “Autumn is a second spring when every…

Moon Magic

It was too magical, too fairy tale-like, as if I had crossed into some Celtic dream world. Just then, a meteorite soared across the sky, right next to the moon, downwards as if it was heading for earth itself. Wow! A few moments later, I caught sight of another shooting star. This is the stuff of myth and folklore, the stuff of magic – just the kind of magic we need to revitalise our souls.
