Beltane Garden

Happy Beltane for those in the Southern hemisphere!  (And while there are no pumpkins in our gardens here, we can say Happy Halloween to the Northern Hemisphere folk!  Have fun trick-or-treating!  We’ll be doing that at the end of April!) The traditional date for Beltane is 31st October, and astrologically this year it’s on the […]


These beautiful blue pieces were what emerged from my bundles at the Women’s Seasonal Eco-printing Circle in July.  I fell in love with them straight away – felt so nourished just looking at them.  It was my grandmother’s birthday (though she is dead now), and having them in the room inspired a fresh spring altar, clear […]

Imbolc Candles

Imbolc is the third of eight seasonal celebrations marked throughout the year by ancient Europeans, and means ewe’s milk,’ pointing to the pregnant/quickening nature of this season. This festival also became known as Candlemas, a time during which households melted the ends of their candles to make it through the end of Winter into the […]

Imbolc Eco-printing

My second Imbolc eco-printing workshop – not holding space this time, but rather, immersing in the rich art-therapy offering of Jacqui Grace! It was a delight to journey through the evening into the next day, and watch how my keyword play changed over time – a mirror of how I was changing in the space, […]

Eco-printing circle reflections

Last weekend we gathered as part of the series of Seasonal Women’s Eco-printing Circles. Drinking in the beauty of the womb-like ger/yurt, the new growth of Spring, the abundance of the altar of leaves & materials, the wisdom of the process. Keywords of feelings and experiences shared over the course of the day are woven together into […]

Today, we mark the sabbat Lammas, or Lughnassadh, the first of three harvest festivals.  Here we bear witness to the first fruits of our efforts, both physical and metaphorical, from whatever we were planting back in July-August-September last year.  It’s worth reflecting on what’s been successful, what you’re pleased with, and/or what you might change […]

Ostara :: Spring Equinox

  My plan this year is to mark the ancient Celtic sabbats, because I love how they are grounded in the natural patterns and cycles of nature, and how they call me to notice, in ritual and action, these changes around me.  I cannot help but be a tiny bit more grounded, I believe. We […]
