Great Mother Rising…Ignoring the Tyranny!

I made a video today. I had every intention of talking on several issues, but found myself almost mute as I walked the woodland. A strange kind of afternoon, for there seemed to be little birdsong too. Silence appeared to be universal. This often happens after Samhain…though I know not why. For my part I’m inclined to go with the flow and whatever the Cosmos is channelling. There appears to be a ramp-up to conflict towards war happening in the world of Man…deliberate and dark. It grieves me. The elements of abusive and hate-filled Patriarchy, that has fuelled fear, horror…

It Still Takes My Breath Away!

Each morning I arise and embark on a series of rituals, that culminate with a hot cup of tea in one hand, my camera in the other and faithful Jack by my side. It is then that I step out… This has been my ritual, though not always with Jack, for the past twelve years. And so it continues… What has manifested here on this little piece of sacred Earth still takes my breath away! I touch base with it as many times a day as I can! I take thousands of photographs every year, for the sheer beauty of…

Like Children

For the 99 percent of the time we’ve been on Earth, we were hunter and gatherers, our lives dependent on knowing the fine, small details of our world.  Deep inside, we still have a longing to be reconnected with the nature that shaped our imagination, our language, our song and dance, our sense of the divine.  Janine M. Benyus As an integral part of the global awakening that is happening, humankind are being called back to the earth, to reconnect with Gaia. Not everyone is feeling this at the same time…as each one of us on our own sacred journey…

The Tipping Point Moment

 “Right now over  70% of the world population is convinced that something serious has to be done about the dangers facing the planet. …Most of humanity wants to know how to make the change. It’s one of those tipping-point times where things can change unbelievably fast…” ~ Paul H. Ray and Sherry Ruth Anderson, The Cultural Creatives Words of wisdom. Words of vision. The coming times; a glimpse of what’s to come. These times are infused with uncertainty and fear. Many people deal with this by switching off. The Tipping Point has arrived. Most of us know this to be…

Masters of a Fraction of a Dot

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history…

Another World is Possible…Dawn in a Permaculture Garden

Arising early in the morning and walking out to hear the sounds of sacred earth… The birds above and all around, the earth below… Wherever you are, even in the depths of the city, there is a hum of Nature… And, as Arundhati Roy herself says… “Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” ― Arundhati Roy “Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our…
