We Are Not Forsaken

Great mother writhes and moans on her sickbed,Hoping her discomfiture will jog us awake.Wildlife waits in the wings,Wondering if we will answer the call.The wind gives the trees their voice,“Remember yourselves, remember yourselves…”The buzzard screeches down from above,“It’s not too late, humans!”The world holds its breath, watching our every move. Then… We lift our heads,Continue reading “We Are Not Forsaken”

The Power of a Woman

Yesterday was the full moon, and felt very powerful indeed to me. I am increasingly in synch with the lunar cycle and have started offerings women’s gatherings with each new and full moon, along with a gorgeously wise soul-sister. It feels like very important, meaningful work at this time to hold space to bring theContinue reading “The Power of a Woman”

Earth Medicine

To follow on from my last entry, which documents my recent experience of depression, I wanted to share my ongoing journey towards subsequent recovery. I must caveat this entry by saying I am no authority on how to recover from depression, I can only share my personal experience with heartfelt honesty. Every story is uniqueContinue reading “Earth Medicine”

Converging worlds

I attended the summer conference of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) the other day, the topic of which was ‘Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace’. To be honest, I didn’t really pay much attention to the topic when I booked on, my main motive being accruing some much-needed CPD hours, toContinue reading “Converging worlds”

A cosmic orgasm bursting out of my pen

Sometimes I connect with a higher part of myself and free write. Sometimes the results astound me. This was one of those times – the pen flew and joy and wonder bubbled up within me in an explosion of poetic prose; I was crying by the end of it. Despite it feeling quite vulnerable toContinue reading “A cosmic orgasm bursting out of my pen”

Creature teachers

Today is International Day for Biological Diversity. As such, today I choose to write my own ode to our beautiful planet and the gloriously diverse life that she sustains. Without her we wouldn’t be here. She is our mother-ship! She is the mother that loves us unconditionally and keeps on giving to us, no matterContinue reading “Creature teachers”

Spokesperson for mother earth

I have been watching the magnificent, gentle power of Greta Thunberg’s addresses to the EU recently, and feeling moved to tears at her bravery at speaking out. She is an inspiration to us all. One girl, owning her power, speaking out, from a pure place of deep care about our beautiful planet Earth. She isContinue reading “Spokesperson for mother earth”

What is it all about?

The title of this post was a question I posed to myself today. I have recently returned to the midlands after a year in the Scottish Highlands followed by four months travelling around Mexico. I’m back, and I’m ready to delve back into teaching, sharing, serving my community. My aim is always to inspire andContinue reading “What is it all about?”

Time with myself

Today I felt to write a post. What about? I’m not really sure, but I want to let the fingers fly and see what comes out of me. Tomorrow I’m going to turn off my phone, shut down my computer and do a three-day complete technology detox. It was recommended to me by a mentor/teacherContinue reading “Time with myself”

Saving myself to save the world

The following piece of writing flew out of me with a strange urgency one morning a few months ago, following an intense dream. Today my heart feels utterly wide open and I feel so very connected to every single being, so grateful for this human existence and have so much love in my heart that IContinue reading “Saving myself to save the world”
