This weekend’s solstice is an extraordinary one. Not only because we are in the middle of the coronvirus pandemic and the huge upheaval it has inflicted on our everyday lives, or the Black Lives Matter international uprising that seeks to change structural racism, or that we are in the middle of the 6th mass extinction … More The Holy Trinity of this solstice eclipse
In March, the world as we know it turned upside down. And my reaction was to drop the ‘extras’ and focus my energy and attention on the core. This boiled down to a few things – family, home and garden, physical health, and the women I work with in circle. Social media and blogging took … More Magic at a distance
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

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
I can’t clearly remember the first time I heard to phrase ‘holding space’ that referred to an energetical and conscious intention rather than saving a seat or some other physical waiting. But for me from the beginning it felt obvious what it meant, even if I couldn’t quite find the right words to describe what … More The Art of Holding Space
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?
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
To work magic is to weave the unseen forces into form; to soar beyond sight; to explore the uncharted dream realm of the hidden reality. ~ Starhawk The trees were whispering secrets, and a lone crow flew through the air, calling out loudly in his thick, throaty voice. The air hung still, the gentle … More Salt Bowl Ceremony
Who were the witches? Where did they come from? Maybe your great, great grandmother was one. Witches were wise, wise women they say. 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
