As we approach midwinter; the darkest night of the year, some of us may be feeling a rub in balancing the festive cheer alongside nature's strong cyclical pull into the shadow realms...
If so, this is for you.
Honouring each of us as we bow to where the lights meets the dark...
RETURN TO LOVE - The Only Task That Matters 🖤
What if we could stop projecting onto others for a moment,
catch our neediness,
unravel our control mechanisms,
slow down the subtle manipulation
She sees your broken open heart, your weary body, and your mind distraught with memories of the past. She sees the history of pain coursing through your veins, like wildfires through our Earth's forests. And yet She is the one that has empowered you to withstand the flames. She is the one that protects you from decay and turns up the heat at the same time.
Listen to Her thunderous call as it spirals out from the belly of your being, burning your insides anew. Trust in the w
Some reflections & explorations from me on the very ripe topic of: SELF WORTH (Warning: this may be a little challenging to read)
Lets get honest. Where does your sense of worth currently lie or feel challenged?
- in your body shape/image
- in how attractive he finds you
- in how many likes and comments you get on Facebook
- in how many followers you have on instagram
- in how many people are coming to your events
- in how many clients or job offers you have
- in h
The sexual nature of intimate relating is key to the potential transformation for both souls. Where by love making allows a direct pathway to the essence of spirit and oneness of being. Sacred union activates the raw power of Love and Life Force energy to carve out the body space, allowing both partners to experience the penetrating presence of consciousness into their sacred temples: the heart and sexual organs.
The meeting of consciousness with matter in this way can ve
The fact that as human beings, we long for intimacy with another more than anything, is no great surprise when we recognise the parallel deep heart opening desire for the return to Self.
The meeting of two souls within the container of intimate relating holds the potential for profound inner and outer transformation and awakening. It is the meeting of two open hearts merging into ecstatic Oneness yet allowing the true birth of each one as their individual essence. As Man an
Engaging consciously in relating with others is one of the greatest amplifiers of the unconscious realms.
As relational beings, with open, sensitive and vulnerable hearts, we are constantly invited to recognise the potential of every relationship as a mirror reflecting back our own tender, hidden and often disguised reality. We can count on those we are in close relationship with to reflect back all that is unresolved within us. This more than often manifests through conf
How many of us can openly admit we have hated on someone we are in close relationship with?
Whether it be our parents, partner, best friend, work colleague; it is inevitable that if we care about them enough then they are likely to piss us off at some point.
We often go to long lengths to avoid confrontation, as a deep fear arises of being in a situation that is anything but smooth and rosey, and instead finding ourselves challenged, feeling wrong/wronged, righteous, frus
In times of transition, there is a natural tendency to rush to rebirth, quickly back into the known, in an urgent attempt to fix, maintain, or heal that which is dying. It is so ordinary, so human, so precious really to resist falling apart and prioritise putting it all back together.
There was an old belief that as our hearts opened, the vulnerability would diminish, the terror would fall away, the tenderness would yield, that we'd not care so much about others and the wor
It's certainly been a strong time here, feeling the squeeze of this Winter Solstice/Full Moon portal, almost like entering into a tight vacuum where all the last lingering threads of what has shown itself for healing this year, came up to be unavoidably dealt with. On the night of Winter Solstice I held a fire ceremony at my house, and I could finally feel the welcomed sense of spaciousness this portal was inviting me into. At this time of year I always feel a call towards an
About The Other Night...
After a day of struggle, and resisting letting go, my body intuitively moved into ceremony in the late hours of Samhain night...
Every sign had shown it was needed, I was not being totally honest with my inner movements, a fragmented piece of me left unseen and unheld. Yet my mind was resisting taking the step...
Because for me ceremony is the ultimate space for Surrender. A sacred cauldron for the hearts most intimate prayer to be heard a
Autumn Equinox, as always, offers a significant turning point for me… And this year, as the allure of cosy dark nights by the fire and warm pots of tea begin to call to my soul, I can feel with such tangible clarity the beginning of a new and very beautiful cycle.
After a wildly intense and potent summer, (quite literally burning up in the core of the fire for most of it); the cool autumn winds are so welcome right now, gently guiding me to turn in, take stock and enquire
Have you ever noticed that bliss and pain are pretty much 2 sides of the same coin? They feel miles apart but in fact the embodied experience of them is pretty similar...
Both are certainly challenging to fully experience... Before the body is able to relax into either there is usually a great deal of resistance to face, a tension that at times can feel excruciating, overwhelming,like a giant bubble about to burst. Our experience becomes very noisy at this point, either int
After a magical day yesterday bathing in the beauty of opposites: strong spring sunshine, followed by the magnificent blue and cooling view of moon rise over the water; I am now sat contemplating the perfection of this year's Beltane juncture as the wind howls outside and a storm rolls in... Natures cycles truly reflects all the messages we need.
For the last 3 years, I have experienced very clear 9 month cycles that pull me deep into particular processes, setting off full
How many of us can say that we have never ended up hating on someone we are in close relationship with? Whether it be our parents, partner, best friend, work colleague; it is inevitable that if we care about them enough then they are likely to piss us off at some point. "One oppresses what one fears" - James Hollis We often go to long lengths to avoid confrontation, as a deep fear arises of being in a situation that is anything but smooth and rosey.

In my work, I'm often asked about Self Care practices and how best to take care during intense periods. To be honest my answer always varies depending on the person, circumstances and what's currently moving.
Sometimes self care is cancelling an appointment, giving yourself that extra time in bed or creating more space in your schedule. Sometimes it's being absolutely quiet and alone with intense emotional waves, or nourishing yourself with soulful company and playfulness.
One of the first practices I learnt when I stepped onto the path of tantra and awakening as woman, was breast massage. And still continues to be a daily practice until today.
Back then I had no particular relationship with my breasts. Other than squeezing them into my yoga bra, I was barely aware of their existence. They were there, they were ok, men liked them, just another part of my body... But the idea of touching them, and connecting to them was certainly foreign, not
What if we could stop projecting others for a moment,
catch our neediness,
unravel our control mechanisms,
slow down the subtle manipulation,
notice our pull to retract and disconnect,
release ourselves from the pity party,
drop the ideas of how things should look
and finally see the variety of constructs by which we have unconsciously learned to give and receive love… What if our friends unworthiness and shame have another friend to introduce us to? What if we were to
In the next week I will be heading back to the UK for some precious time with family, friends and to hold circle for a beautiful group of women in London. I can feel the excitement bubbling around re-connecting with soul family and it brings to light something that I have been reflecting on for some time: that Aloneness and Togetherness play key roles in the paradoxical nature of the our individual journeys. No one else can feel our bliss, our pain, allow our hearts to crack
A few years back I recognised how my spiritual journey had actually become a ‘spiritual by-passing’ of a big part of my human existence…I had spent years cultivating in silence, diving into blissful states, detaching and basically avoiding deep parts of myself that longed for healing and love. The parts of myself that make me very human, my fears, my emotions, my judgement, my deep childhood trauma and inherited pain… My cultivation turned out to be great preparation for the
I have been blessed to have spent many years exploring teachings, communities, practices that support living a life with an open heart, and yet somehow it is only in this past year that I have deeply begun to truly understand what that means and the strength it requires to stay there… The key for me is vulnerability. Ironically, there at the core of our vulnerability lies an incredible power, a power far greater than the power that the mind understands and longs for… A power
