The Ninth Storm

9 February 2016 //
FEBRUARY WOMB YOGA NEWSLETTER: When the high tide meets floodwater From the ninth storm, Where does it all go? Rushing in torrents down the narrow valley, Filling fields, washing roads, drowning paths. Fences are disappearing, Trees are up to their necks, And there are swans in the street.

Samhain Bleed

1 December 2015 //
I was honoured to spend my fiftieth birthday Samhain (Hallowe’en) bleed in the company of the Irish yoginis in Dublin, my mother’s hometown.

Summer Greetings...

4 June 2015 //
I am just back from an extraordinary time in Lesvos, where I was studying yoga with inspirational elder yogini and yogi, Angela Farmer and Victor van Kooten www.angela-victor.com. The work in the goddess temple (aka yoga hall) was heart-opening and remarkable, but the heart-opening work continued every day outside of our front doors, for on the beaches of Lesvos are arriving every day, boatloads of refugees: from Syria, from Palestine, from Nigeria, from Afghanistan…

How is your copy of Yoni Shakti?

14 October 2014 //
Sadly, due to an error at the printers, one batch of copies of the first printing of Yoni Shakti are not wearing very well: a few readers have reported that the cover lamination has peeled apart and the colour pages have come adrift. If your copy shows these symptoms, then please can you send a photograph of the book to the very lovely Zoe (zoe@pinterandmartin.com) who will be happy to send you one of the top quality new copies when they are ready to go.
