”When you lose touch with your inner stillness you lose touch with yourself” Eckhart Tolle

Hello wise friend,

Let’s go for a stroll together and have a chat.

This is me at 60 (picture above). Mother of 3 amazing sons (20 – 30). Recovering from empty nest.  It’s hard. Really, really hard. 

At 60, I’m a lover of words. Poetry. Philosophy. Slow living. Less. Earth Medicine. Nature. Ritual. Ancient remedies. Tea.  Always tea. 

I’m still learning.

The photo below (at the end of this post) sums me up.  Sipping tea, surrounded by books and eating spelt scones.  

The older I get, the more I value the medicine of connecting to my inner stillness.  

I’ve been offering Slow Rest retreats since 2006 all over the world.  Teaching deep rest and restorative rituals are my passion but I’m sure you already know that.   I’m looking at adding a few more retreat locations this year. Possibly New Zealand and Tasmania.  But we’ll see. I’ll let the venues find me.  I’m open to suggestions.  

Dates for 2019 retreats in France and Bali can be found here.

If you fancy a little more regular connection, you can find me on instagram.   It’s my preferred social media outlet these days for sharing rituals and what I’m reading, loving and exploring at the moment.

A Big thank you to You.

I’m grateful you subscribe to my occasional blog posts. There’s over 10,000 of you receiving them. Wow! That figure blows me away.  Mostly from USA and England.  

Thank You once again. 

My intention is always to share simple, do-able rituals.   I consider rituals to be my best friend, loyal companions that weave nourishment and a sense of well being into my life. Rituals quite simply have our back.  Help us through difficult times.  Wrap us in a protective layer when feeling fragile.  Strengthen our spiritual immune system, our physical body and fortify the thinking mind.

So today I’m reaching out, and asking if you’d like to ask me a question?

If you have a question, I’ll do my best to prescribe a healing ritual to support your specific situation.

I’ve not done this before here, so not sure what sort of response I’ll get. So please be patient if you don’t hear from me straight away.

I’m also super curious as to what challenges many of you are facing at the moment.  My higher intention is to share more helpful and healing rituals that support those challenges or difficulties in life.  As we all know life is full of them.

Well, I hope to hear from you. Please don’t be shy. 

You also have my word as a qualified counsellor that what you share with me will be strictly confidential.

Looking forward to your questions or connecting with you on instagram.

Much love.
