What I did after Retreat

“How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. How much better to sit by myself like the solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake.

A Moment of Perfect Peace

“Spirituality is not to be learned by flight from the world, or by running away from things, or by turning solitary and going apart from the world.

Chronically ill and Happy!

“The individual who says it is not possible should move out of the way of those doing it.” ~ Tricia Cunningham   I’m not happy because I have a chronic illness – I’m happy because I still love my life! It’s possible, and in fact I think it’s necessary, to find happiness when life has dealt […]

Inviting Stillness…

“When I dance, I dance, when I sleep, I sleep; yes, and when I walk in a beautiful orchard , if my thoughts drift too far off matters for some part of the time, for some other part I led them back again to the walk, the orchard, the sweetness of this solitude, to myself.” […]

Don’t Play the Rescue Game!

I tried to carry you And make you whole But it was never enough I must go Lyrics from Watch Over You, Alter Bridge Many of my friends and clients are kind-hearted and compassionate souls, who feel compelled to help people.  In fact many are healers, counsellors and lightworkers by trade.

Drinking in Colour – how to do a Healing Walk

Have you ever had a rough day? Silly question.  Of course you have.

Working with Crystal Grids – Day Four

A Cup of Tea and Comfort…

Working with the energy of forgiveness

“Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.” Suzanne Somers Negative emotions can disrupt the flow of your heart chakra just as easily as boulders in a stream.
