Marrying another person is a big step, it involves courage for the commitment you are agreeing to. It requires a level of vulnerable intimacy, a willingness to be seen by another person in all your wounds as well as all your glory. It requires emotional bravery. This was one of my biggest barriers to opening … More Love (yourself) this February
It’s been two years now since this course first started writing itself. I know that’s kind of a funny way of expressing it, but it’s true – I didn’t so much write this, as get out the way and let it write itself. This way of writing is true of many of my creations, such … More The way of the witch

A diversity of women from different walks of life create a rich environment … More Sacred Women’s Circle: a video
This summer seems to be revolving, once again, around the theme of self-care. We want self-care, and that doesn’t just mean bubble baths! Before self-care can be efficient, i.e fulfilling it’s aim of being nourishing for mind, body & soul. There has to be in place a grounded concept of who you are and what … More Internalising feminism
Let’s start with what a Mother Blessing Ceremony (hereon refereed to as *MBC*) is NOT. Ok, so *MBC* is not a baby shower (gifts for baby and party games), it’s not a religious ceremony, it doesn’t need a celebrant (but you might like to have one anyway), it is not an opportunity for people to … More What is a Mother Blessing Ceremony?
The idea of the witch is a ongoing thread weaving it’s way through in our modern world, one that has continued to haunt children’s fairy tales and is prominent not just at Halloween but also in political bickering on one hand, and then people self-identifying as a witch on the other hand. (1) Witch modern … More Weaving the Witch
A women’s circle is a safe space for women to share their stories, be heard and be seen. This is an act of resistance! We take the power over ourselves, our thoughts & our feelings back into our own hands. Women have been sitting in circles longer than written history. We gathered around fires in … More What is a women’s circle?
This is a story of 2018. It was the year in which the Full Circle Sacred Yurt Space was born here in the woods. The planning started back in 2017, but it wasn’t until February 2018 that ground was broken and the yurt arrived. Since then the circle has continued to grow and hold space for … More The year in 40 photos (or less)
Gently unfolding, yet profoundly shifting. I’m dreaming of creating a space, a closed container for some deep & slow work that evolves through the seasons over a full year. Each month we’ll spend a full day together; sitting in circle, sharing our stories, honouring the season and life cycles. Spend time in nature both together … More Dreaming the witches’ way
The year passes in linear fashion yet in reality it spirals, as we pass each seasonal milestone, we are not the same as we were last time. Like a river, our waters continually change, our cells constantly regenerating. Autumn transition This period of autumn leaning into winter has a soporific effect on me. I feel … More Curling into winter’s embrace

And there’s a little witch in every woman today! ~by Bonnie Lockhart The hardest bit about being a western witch, is the hundreds of years of heavy baggage it can bring. The … More The way of the western witch

Organised around the dominant patriarchal society where worth is measured by productiveness, and time counted in hours; it’s easy to get swept up and forget that there might be another way. Sometimes ,it can feel like there simply isn’t enough hours in the day to fulfil … More What is a Red Tent?
