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

These expectations: the pressure from family & society to perform and be happy can be crushingly painful as you struggle to put it all together. The tree, the decorations, the shopping, the wrapping, the planning and cooking. Everything perfectly timed and all the time with a smile. And somewhere inside there’s a voice wondering if … More Why does this time of year have to be so hard?
You feel alone in the world, even though you’re busy and know lots of people. You feel like there’s no time, no space to slow down and it’s like no-one really knows you.
