On Tender, Loving, Vulnerability and Transformation

Let me make it clear that I share what I share because I believe and know of the power in vulnerability. I am well, I am strong, I am blessed, I am exactly where I need to be, experiencing exactly what is needed in service of my own transformation and that of the collective. I do not need or seek sympathy. I share because I feel it is important to share the whole of me, the whole of the...

Male Suicide and the Divine Feminine

At different points yesterday I found my mind wondering about the suicide of my homeless friend Rem and I saw the connection with the feminine, the heart, the feeling centre. Rem was loved by many folk but he could not feel it. I can relate to this.

As the leaves come to the end of their short life and the trees let them go, they can fall to the ground and nourish saplings of the future. And I welcome the different weather conditions that the seasons bring. The photo was...

Reflections on Having our Needs Met

I have been seeing my resistance to asking to have my needs met recently. I notice that sometimes I don't ask for what I need for, for fear of rejection...for fear of the other saying 'no'. And that somehow if they were to say 'no' I would somehow be less, I would be worse off than if I had kept my mouth closed. But I also know that this is not true. Whenever we ask for what we need we...
