A friend posted this  quote from Clarissa Pinkola Estes this morning, I wold like to share with you these wise words to remind you  to listen to that call from the wild

 

The way to maintain one’s connection to the wild

is to ask yourself what is it that you want. 

One of the most important discriminations we can make
in this matter is the difference between things
that beckon to us and things that call from our souls.
When we are connected to the instinctual self,
to the soul of the feminine which is natural and wild,
then instead of looking over whatever happens
to be on display, we say to ourselves,
“What am I hungry for?
” Without looking at anything outwardly, we venture inward and ask,
“What do I long for?
What do I wish for now?
What do I crave?
What do I desire?
For what do I yearn?”
It takes spirit, will, and soulfulness
and it often means
holding out for what one wants.

Tranquility in snow

Velvet Shoes

Let us walk in the white snow

In a soundless space;

With footsteps quiet and slow,

At a tranquil pace,

Under veils of white lace.

 

I shall go shod in silk,

And you in wool,

White as white cow’s milk,

More beautiful

Than the breast of a gull.

 

We shall walk through the still town

In a windless peace;

We shall step upon white down,

Upon silver fleece,

Upon softer than these.

 

We shall walk in velvet shoes:

Wherever we go

Silence will fall like dews

On white silence below.

We shall walk in the snow.

Dream tree

Be Transformed in a New LifeCast all the old away to make room for the new. Open your eyes and behold nature all around you: a tree has to rid itself of all its old dead leaves before the new growth can spring forth in its full glory. The seed must break through its old skin before it can grow and flourish; it has to leave all the old behind to wither and die away. When a baby chick hatches out of its shell, it does not cling onto the old shell but leaves it behind forever and is transformed in a new life; so with each one of you. Leave all the old behind as you advance into the new. Never look back or hanker for anything of the old even if at the time it seemed very good. There are far more wonderful things in the New so never be afraid or reluctant to leave all the old behind.

this piece was sent to me from FINDHORN this morning, though I would like to share this with you

the painting is one of my creative endeavours

A shamanic workshop for a new world

Pleased to announce that I shall be back in Malta for a new  3 day workshop from Friday February 8th  1oth

Neil, Kat and I are joining forces again and very happy to return to this very powerful island.

As the Old World order continues its decline and disintegration, we are experiencing the birth of a New World, one prophesied by indigenous peoples across the globe. Whilst we need to continue to work on ourselves as individuals in body, mind and spirit, the focus is increasingly on working together as groups and even more widely as part of a global, and potentially cosmic network. The Inca talk of this time, which they call “Taripaypacha” or “time of rediscovering ourselves”, as a time when “ayni” or harmony will be restored between peoples and between the worlds. This will be a time of new ways of working collectively, in tune with the Cosmos. This workshop, the sixth in a series of occasional events which began in 2008 in Malta, will utilize a beautiful and powerful set of shamanic processes and ceremonies to support and guide participants on a journey from self, to group and finally to the collective. In doing so we will be modeling the way we wish to be in this New World. 

Whether you have been with us before, or are new to this work, we are very keen to connect to as many people as we can, so please join us
