Here be dragons…

Here be dragons. There are edges and centres, known and unknown spaces to this map. There are braided desire paths, and wild, deep forests, and high walls and highways. There are clustered homes and circled wagons and there are gateways and gatekeepers. There are feuding tribes and border disputes and common land. There are strange beasts, and fae lords and… Read more →

Tidying up

As the new website is getting its last little tidying up, it’s time to share the last little bits from my old ‘Changeling’ creative website. A few pretty pictures, and one short text. The next time I post, hopefully it’ll all look different around here. [We’ve transfered this blog archive to the new site wholesale] I am the mother. I… Read more →

Butterflies

Big themes collide like icebergs in my thinking this week: ideological clashes; inspirational conversations; memories recalled; histories remade. I give thanks for a new space of solidarity; and to Matthew Remski for supplying the defining thematic for my week – neoliberalism as religion. I’m realising how deep run the threads of hyper-individualism, consumerism, flattened difference and above all, grief and… Read more →

Faery Fortunes

Phil and I are working quite hard behind the scenes here to bring all sorts of new loveliness to this website.

Once upon a misspent youth, I used to carry… Read more →

And at times, my ‘yoga’ practice has more in common with the free movement of… Read more →

Driving home

And I’m driving home from class with frost on the windows, into the depths of the night. I’m winding down the lanes, skipping pot holes, a little wired on unaccustomed caffeine, on the night and the cold, and the release of it all, and above all, on the music pouring into my ears from this woman’s wondrous heart.   And… Read more →

Wild Yoga Satsang 2: Action/Surrender

Last night a small group of us gathered for the second ‘satsang’ session, and set the seal on the first of our chosen themes, after the first ‘vinyasa’ session before Christmas. The theme was Action/Surrender, and present were Helen, Jill and myself, as well as the usual sacred container of those-there-in-spirit. January is a busy time, when most people don’t… Read more →

Fragments of Family

I’ve spent most of this week writing a 3,000 word submission to Patheos’ upcoming ‘Pagan Consent Culture’ anthology, and now it’s time for another blog post. I also have a space now on the OU site for my own little blog presence as a ‘junior researcher’, so in future some of these posts might appear there. I haven’t really even… Read more →
