We Thrive

Let’s make 2016 a year where we all thrive and grab the opportunity to do so!

Prides, sets, lairs, clumps, schools, flocks, brands, churches, clubs, synagogues, temples, mosques, covens: these are only a few names for ‘community’. Almost all species of our world thrive in community. It is known that people are healthier (and happier) when feeling part of a community. Not belonging to a community makes creatures feel lonely and there is the danger of not thriving, of not ‘being safe in numbers’.

Without the sense of community on-going loneliness becomes like a chronic illness.

When dealing with loved but forgotten items it takes time to recollect the memory, hold the item in your hand, go through feelings and then the big decision is there: with or without us.

I’ve been an artist for over 20 years, I’ve thrown away my art (my children were […]

Love-able Environs

It feels as if there is a change happening in my world. Would love to write here: Our World, but I can’t speak for others. If you agree with me, please let me know in the comments section below.

I feel that the ‘good’ is getting stronger, it feels that a surge of Love Warriors (how can I say that differently without using a war-like term?) is standing up and make very sure that they are counted.

As many of you know, I’m travelling through the United States teaching at two events. One was the Labyrinth Society’s annual gathering in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the other is coming up tomorrow, at the Fellowships of the Spirit in Lilydale, New York.

I’ve been in situations – multiple flights, train rides, airports, taxi sharing rides – where fellow travellers and I shared small spaces. […]
