A few months back a new client told me that she had been wanting to try reiki for years but didn’t know very much about it. She asked if there was some information on-line that she could read prior to our appointment. I didn’t quite know what to say… there’s loads of stuff out there … More Reiki… as I see it!
There’s been a bit of a theme in this blog over the past few months… about slowing down, lowering the expectations I put on myself and letting go of a ‘need to achieve’… The circumstances that were forced upon us in March induced a much steadier pace of life and a re-organisation of priorities, all … More The Art of Doing Nothing
I did a little experiment recently… and thought I would share with you what I’ve learnt. As part of my #30DaysWild Challenge (a campaign by the Wildlife Trusts which I do every year) I decided I would ditch the phone and laptop for a whole 24 hours and see if I could be gadget free … More Ditching the Devices
Some thoughts on moving beyond anger and frustration; Finding peace in nature and changing ourselves in order to change the world. … More Transcendence

Is it just me or is there a connection between the division and hatred sweeping our country and Mother Nature showing us the strength of her wrath? Like an … More Weather and Walking
Ok so many of you may be thinking isn’t it a bit late for a ‘New Year’ post…?!! For me, however 1st February marks a significant turn in the seasonal calendar and a time for new beginnings. Recognised as ‘Imbolc’ in the Pagan tradition it’s also when the earth seems to awaken from it’s winter … More New Year… New Blog!
It already seems so long ago doesn’t it?!! The kids are back at school, nights are drawing in and mornings have a cool chill that suddenly appeared overnight… yes it’s September and summer is soon to be a fleeting memory. We’ve been pretty indulgent this summer (by usual standards!), taking quite a bit of time … More Memories of Summer
This past month (or more!) has been a busy one and I’ve been a tad guilty of doing exactly what this blog set out to prevent… rushing through my days without stopping to appreciate the small stuff… or even worse, the not so small but pretty amazing stuff! We’ve helped to fit out a new … More Our Wild Herb Garden
