Imbolc Greetings! As I travel across snowy fields on the train from Manchester back to Stroud, I observe the freezing landscape and the way this cold changes how we humans behave. Even as we head towards the start of a return to light, there is a cold dark presence of winter still, and death is close too. Like so many other of her admiring readers around the world, I mourn the loss of the great American poet, Mary Oliver, and give thanks for the beauty and wisdom she leaves us. I take comfort in the deep knowing of the earth which she communicated, and I praise the deep connections of love and friendship that persist and nourish me through this work.
Rest is the Essence of Giving and Receiving
Tropical greetings to the web of yoginis around the world. Writing this from the porch of a villa in Kerala, South India, hearing the sound of the Indian Ocean, and feeling the warm breezes of a tropical winter night, I am fully aware of the deep privilege and honour that it is to share these precious teachings of Yoni Shakti and blood wisdom mysteries around the world. The web of women weaving this rediscovery of ancient wisdom and the new paradigms for sharing it is a powerful connecting thread that I travel along, spinning connections like a hardworking little spider, wherever I go.

Yoga & The Subtle Body, A FREE Online Gathering
As you know, there is so much more to life than what meets the eye. Yoga and modern scientific discoveries tell us everything is energy, and everything has its roots in the invisible realms. We are SO much more than our physical form! As we deepen our practice of yoga we experience ourselves on increasingly subtle levels, and it is these subtle layers of our being that dictate our state of health and wellbeing. Learning to understand and work with the subtle body is vital to create the healing and change we wish to experience in ourselves and the world.
The Holy Unknowing
This beautiful prayer was sent to me by Lela Beem, of Amala School of Yoga in Chicago. It arrived just as I just returned from teaching in Leeds, where I had been sharing a day of support for women experiencing fertility difficulties. The message of this prayer resonated with me very powerfully.
The intuitive mind is a sacred gift
Dear womb Yoginis Warm greetings from Buddhafield, where the gathering of conscious hearts is happening, and we are sharing Yoga Nidra every morning. Settling in here after a full power womb yoga training intensive in Stroud, I am still feeling the powerful conversations that we opened up at our #metooinyoga circle in London at the beginnning of June. Thanks to Theo Wildcroft and Eunice Laurel for holding with me a clear safe space for these important issues around abuses of power in yoga to be considered. We will be reporting further on how the conversations unfolded.
