As we go through Life, it can be hard to keep up. So much is happening and it is not easy to take it all in and stay present.
At this time of year - the beginning of the Harvest season - fruits ripen and offer themselves. This can also be true in life, and it is good to gather what has been given. This way we can more fully receive the goodness of what is already with us, and make sure it will sustain us for the future.
Now is the time to remember. We can linger a while and op…

Looking around us, it is sometimes obvious that we are in a place of Beauty. It is easy to see. At other times, we may have to look harder and use different ways of relating. We may have a lot of assumptions about what Beauty is, and the Spirits can teach us more about what it means to them.
What happens to Beauty, when we begin to open to it in another way? When it is not about how something looks on the surface, but how it carries its essence, or how it harmonises with what is a…

Each new day opens us to many possibilities. How will we respond? Sometimes it is easy to see where we are going and what the right choice is. Sometimes the road seems muddy and hard going, and we become bogged down, confused, uncertain. Trusting can be hard when we feel vulnerable, hurt or alone, without solid ground under our feet.
Yet here we are, alive and present, still able to take a breath. We come back to ourselves and remember what we long for.
Life does not come with g…

Every ending is a beginning. We walk out of this space and step into another. Look around. What do you see? That tree you are looking at - what does it see when it looks back at you, on the threshold with the closed door behind you?
The World has just been re-created. Your next step and your next breath are your last in this life, becoming your first step and breath as they take you into a new existence – over and over and over
The message of individuality, which many of us rec…
OCTOBER 2022 -
As leaves let go and branches remain, a different view emerges. In its nakedness, Autumn brings an opportunity to see more clearly where we are. Here we can stand in an essential way, with our life as it is now.
The ideas and plans and hopes we might have for this day, or for tomorrow, can rest a while. In this time, nothing new needs to grow. Instead we can let that which is finished to fall away. And stand, like Trees, not reaching for anything, but letting leaves go and danci…
CONNECTING IN CIRCLE
Things happen when we sit in Circle
It is a central part of our work with the Spirits
Bringing the Circle together and feeling the connection
As the Power flows through
The Circle is a birthplace, a beginning and an ending
Holding space for things to happen
There is a place for each of us here,
An invitation to step in and take part
Even in times when we may not feel the connection
it is still here, holding us and reminding us
that so much more can happen when we come together
Sometimes it can be easy to lose oneself. Maybe it is because we are running too fast, with too much to do. Maybe we expect a lot of ourselves or opt for an easy way out. Perhaps we are facing great change. At such times, the ground can feel loose or shaky, and we become uncertain. We may make choices that do not feel quite right and regret creeps in with a growing sense of unease.
What happens to our souls when we are not true to who we are? Avoiding the truth can, over time, make ou…
Life makes itself known, in its vibrant and insistent regeneration. Springtime in Scandinavia is a rich time - tight tiny buds on trees unfurling, early flowers reaching for the Sun and green growth overtaking dry remnants of Winter.
Whatever tragedies play out on the human stage, Nature insists on Life. Here it is again, right in front of us. We can open to the Power of new Life, of Regeneration, of Budding and Blossoming. Even in sadness, grief and anger, Beauty is here. Even in …
