Courage to Love

At the end of this year I feel very grateful to be sitting here again, summoning up the words for my end of year post, for honouring, for blessing, for wishing. This year I will be brief. This year I wish to be, more than do, to gather at the centre of my core and […]

Joining The Tides

20th April 2015 Descending Holy Mountain… Climbers walk past, fast paced, heads down, carrying their heavy load of gear, chatting – loud – busy, busy headed, talking, talking. Has the Mountain left nothing with them…How can you climb a mountain and not acquire some of its stillness? This most sacred of temples is made of […]
