Whichever part of the calendar you choose to celebrate the turn of the year we wish you all a resplendently wonderful, healthy and prosperous New Year!
We look to 2018 with gleeful expectancy. Yes, politically there are shifting sands but isn’t there always? What the politicians tend to forget is that they are supposed to be serving the people, not the other way about so remember where the power really lies.
So to the gleeful expectancy. Well I have plans. All ways I have plans! For a while now I have been looking at the option of holding retreats, not just in Scotland but in many places. We are looking at the Isle of Bute as one of the venues and also France, some lovely sun and sea for those of you who would like to bring partners we are looking at options to provide them and you some extracurricular diversions.
If you would like more information send us an email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Journey circles and storytelling will be up and running again soon. Personally I cannot wait to get everyone in circle again. Also we shall be taking time to make ceremony in our favourite spot and these are open ceremonies, all we ask is that you come in respect and with an open heart. Details of those will be posted on the Facebook pages.
The online courses and the eBooks are coming along nicely and will be out soon.
I have not made any resolutions for the New Year, I tend to make them as I go along. Figuring out what my goals will be for the short term. Smallest steps toward the whole.
So I will see you, I hope either in person or online. If you have any questions about anything we do please feel free to ask. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Be kind to yourselves and those in your life.
I was having a discussion the other day with a friend. We were discussing the Seasons of the year and which one we preferred. I had to have a think about it. I do have a soft spot for Spring…but then don’t we all? Autumn though, Autumn is my favourite. Autumn is the Season of Completion. Continue reading “Autumn: The Season of Completion”→
Well, there I was sitting at the laptop writing up courses when the phone rang! Not at all unusual, that is what phones do after all. However, I was unaware at first who this person was. Continue reading “An Inspirational Task”→
We are still working away here at Spiral Heart. We don’t want you to think we have forgotten about you while we are off making ritual and ceremony in some lovely places, I have to say… so here’s a wee Lammas Gift. Look out for more news on our online courses, from the very beginning of your journey to being in the thick of it – we’ve got you covered!
There’s a certain vulnerability that we all have and if we weight long enough we finally become habituated and it bdcones part of us. Recognising that we are carrying weight that is not necessarily physical is a start. There is so much we wait to carry, for duty, for love, for disguise. Masking wounds sometimes. Take that long held habit and drop it! Weight for no-one! Define your Self! Become free, weight no more. For some it’s from a past life causing Soul loss- the wounds we salve with food while we weight to heal. It’s never satisfying because we wait for it to be fixed by others when we’ve made this weight our own.
As mentioned before on just about every social media site we are on, we were at the Lammas Fayre on Arran at the weekend. As you can see from the picture above we were making ceremony – a water ritual to be exact. Though ‘exact’ is not really the word to use… Continue reading “Arran, A Magical Space”→
As I wrote in my piece re the Summer Solstice, many people see it in different and inspiring ways. If you are not sure what to do with yourself for any of the Solstice’s or even the equinoxes then get to know them and find a way of understanding how the year turns, get back to being a human being… in time not out of it. This helps us to be mindful and grateful for all that is and it gives us the ability to rest our minds being mindful of how much we need that. Just a thought.
