A Library for Wild Sacred Places

Posted by on Jun 10, 2015 in Good Things | No Comments

One of the things that I love so much about going on long trips by car is that I am not limited to what I can carry. So, for me, that means that I bring books. Lots of them. I have a very well-stocked kindle which is always in my handbag. I have a Scribd ...

It has occurred to me as I have begun sharing my latest offering, Petitioning the Selkies, that not everyone knows what it feels like when their soulskin needs tending and mending, replenishing and restoring. The story of Sealskin Soulskin as retold and shared by Clarissa Pinkola Estes in Women Who Run With the Wolves has ...

This image is made from two photos. The first is of the shoreline of the kyle as it snakes around to the cottage where I lived when I was 20. The second photo is of me and my daughter posing in front of the cottage. As I shared yesterday, I am journeying back up north ...

16 years ago this summer, I moved to the far north of Scotland with my tiny daughter and a very pregnant belly. My beloved had found a job working in a rural high school, as we needed to bring in more money to support our growing family. I should add at this point, that I ...

Confessions of a Selkie

So, I have a confession to make. I have never read Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ Women Who Run With The Wolves from cover to cover. It’s not that I haven’t had the time. And it’s not that I don’t respect the work that went into structuring this incredibly important book. In fact, I’m sure a lot ...

I went looking for a feather…

I took myself out on a treasure hunt. If I’m being honest with myself, I was looking for a sign. A message, of sorts. A wink, perhaps, from the goddess to gift me with clear-seeing as I stare blindly into the mystery of things. And, if I’m being even more honest with both you and ...

Have You Met Your Goddess Self Yet?

So, yesterday, I launched a new 4 week course called The Goddess Self – an online sacred selfie experience. Let me tell you a little bit about it and how it came about – the inside scoop, as such….. This year has been hard for me. Big issues around my health have kept me immobile ...

Each Practical Magic Business Circle has it’s own animal totem. I don’t know why. All I know is that as it comes closer to the time to open the circle, one animal in particular makes its presence felt in a wide number of obvious and impossible to ignore ways. And each time the animal makes ...

Wishes, Intentions, Prayers

Stepping across the threshold, we all instantly fell into a reverential hush. And then even our whispers melted into silent awe as our eyes adjusted to the interior of the church. It wasn’t fancy. Or elaborate. Certainly not ostentatious. Instead, the elegant simplicity of the architecture, and the beauty of the light that streamed in ...
