Final Barefoot Breathing Course

»Posted by on Apr 8, 2013 | 4 comments

Final Barefoot Breathing Course Last year I took an unusual journey of exploration via a process known as Barefoot Breathing. I wanted to remind you about this course again because this month it will be running for the very last time. I wrote about my experiences in this course way back then so I thought I’d repost it here to encourage you to consider taking this amazing journey for yourself. If you’re ready to hop on over there now to sign up, just click on the image to the left and you’ll go straight there!   This is a unique course that provides the opportunity to explore our connection to the heart of nature and ourselves. I’m lucky because most of the participants are in the northern hemisphere where it’s still cold and...

Trusting Our Wings

»Posted by on Jan 6, 2013 | 2 comments

Trusting Our Wings Where is our home? Where is the path that will take us there? Not yet, whispers the wind around the tops of the trees, raining debris down on us. You have lessons to learn. You need to know how to trust yourself. And so we sigh and lie down for the night, under a crescent moon, soft grass for our pillow, and wait to face another day, to learn what we have not yet learned, to follow the paths that go where we know not. This is the way to truth, to life, to ourselves. We might arrive bruised and torn, tired and wounded, but we will arrive because we have no other choice. We can’t go back, we have thrown away the key that turned in us, we have ceased to be wind-up toys and have become pilgrims. One day we will discover our wings and know how to...

Do You Know the Landscapes of Your Soul? Today I have the great pleasure of hosting day 5 of Essence of Wild’s Virtual Blog Tour. There is also another stop on the Virtual Blog Tour today at Allurynn’s place over at Moonlight Muse, and yesterday Essence of Wild visited Subtle Harmony with Gin White. Click here to read Gin’s blog and here to visit Allurynn. Below is my review of Landscapes of Your Soul, the latest enchanted offering from Essence of Wild.  Jason Smalley and Jackie Stewart are the creators of the Barefoot Breathing course which I got great joy out of taking part in last year.  Together they have designed this elegant e-book and the accompanying meditation as a means of teaching people to connect more deeply with the ancient spirit...

Entering The Cave

Entering The Cave I’ve always loved the quote by Joseph Campbell that says “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”. He was probably speaking symbolically, but last month I actually did enter a cave …and I was fearful! I was on the island of Santo in Vanuatu and I kept hearing about a place called Millennium Cave. We were told it was an 8 hour trek and required a moderate level of fitness. I’m not particularly fit at the moment but I’m healthy and in good shape so I looked at it as another chance to widen my comfort zone. I was pretty sure I could do it even though I knew it would be a challenge. Of course as the day got closer, the doubts started to creep in as they typically do. What if I got halfway through...

Barefoot Breathing

»Posted by on Mar 12, 2012 | 14 comments

As mentioned in my February post, I’m dedicating this year to exploring who is underneath all my ‘stories’ and getting in touch with my essence.  There are so many amazing opportunities out there for doing this sort of exploration that I’ve had to make a list and a schedule to keep up! At the moment, I’m taking an unusual journey of exploration via a process known as Barefoot Breathing. This is a unique course that provides the opportunity to explore our connection to the heart of nature and ourselves. I’m lucky because most of the participants are in the northern hemisphere where it’s still cold and even snowing in many parts, whereas I’ve been happily wandering around barefoot in the grass and mud and even...
