WW II – Woman’s War II As we approach the full moon in October 2014 and I reflect on all that’s happened in the past month, I’m further intrigued by the message from the ‘Woman with the Staff’, referred to in my last post, A Woman’s War. I’ve been acutely aware of the inspiration and […]

In May of this year I was asked to deliver a Team Building firewalk for residents of Forres, a small town in the north of Scotland, near Inverness and very close to a friend’s permaculture project – so it made sense to combine my trip with a visit to Ludwig’s perma-farm. Earth Ways is a […]

Aye, it’s been a funny old year; every month bringing something new and exciting – but a quicker one to pass, I’ve never known. The beginning of the year  saw me slip into the community side of things – Chairing the Community Council and working with the women of my own town; applying all that […]

We live in interesting times, for sure. The whole world is changing; nothing is as it was even forty years ago… Rainforests are lost to us; gone are flora and fauna that may have saved lives.

To me it’s just another point-scoring match where the important stuff gets lost. Irrespective of who’s to blame for this or that, […]

I could go on at length about society’s ills but in this post I’m going to overlook those and focus on rituals and ceremony – or rather, the lack of them. Every year for as long as I can remember I’ve taken part in at least one ceremony;  these range from firewalking, sweatlodges  and kriya […]

What started out to be a small e-book has taken almost a year to write, edit and re-write, turning itself into 30,000 words of experience and Spiritual First Aid – perhaps the first (and maybe the last!) of my published work. Putting these words on ‘paper’ has been quite a gruelling task – and one […]

Ayahuasca Insights

by Lesley

It’s over a month since I first had the bitter-sweet taste and effect of Ayahuasca and I can honestly say that there’s hardly been a day where I haven’t had cause to reflect positively on the experience and my learnings. If you’re reading this the chances are, you’ve already read Ayahuasca, A Very Personal Journey, […]
