May is the Month of Mary

I went on a women-only retreat in my home town of Glastonbury, together with a Dutch friend of mine. We walked from my home to Well House Lane at the base of the Tor. This retreat was organized by a native South-American shaman. I did not get to see him initially, we only met when we were well into the retreat. My friend and I neared the entrance to the place where the retreat was being held. Just after the White Spring, to the right, was a feeble rope-bridge, covering a deep ravine. My friend and I started to walk the bridge, it was scary because with every step we…

{:nl} Sig and I went to Drenthe the other day. I needed to be in Sacred Space, in an ancient one, to recharge my batteries. I always ask if I may enter, and when I leave, I give a small gift.

Fearless!

Being with my granddaughters makes me become fearless, their well-being (they have wonderful parents by the way) is paramount… My kids in general make me fearless and my zest for life as an older woman makes me feel fearless. Also the well-being of us, people, makes me fearless. When I see unjustice being done in general makes me fearless. From a very young age I would jump into a quarrel between people, school ‘chums’ if I spotted one. Seperating the warring parties and strike up a conversation. Thank Heavens my work gives me full opportunity to celebrate my fearlessness, in helping people to understand their life situations, their struggles, their…
