{Join Me Live} The Gathering over a Virtual Cuppa Tea - this is my letter to you

How are you?

I've being wanting to write to you, yet I had no words.

I've being wanting to reach out, yet an invisible force was pulling me back.

As I've being playing this tug-o-war game with the many facets of my psyche, it's very cleverly pushed me into the paralysis of inaction.

Then, this yesterday, I received a beautiful email from a tribe member. Her sweet words moved me to tears aswell as igniting a spark within me.

This spark told me to get over myself and just write!

And so I sat,

and I wrote,

and the clarity emerged.

Here is my letter to you dear reader,

The world as we know it continues to be thrown into disarray, confusion, global uncertainty.

We're teetering at the cliffs' jagged edges of the unknown, gazing fearfully into the giant chasm of uncertainty.

To peer over that edge brings up a kind of vertigo that simply renders us useless.

To step forth into that feels far too dangerous.

It continues to feel for me like a great big hand has descended to earth and roughly weeded out all that is familiar, stagnant and stale; all that has us on a collective auto-pilot of living and working in ways that have become so disconnected from Nature.

I feel like I'm staggering around, gazing wearily at my surroundings that are familiar, and yet eerily changed. I constantly question, and question, and question until I feel like I'm going completely mad.

I don't know who I am anymore.

and at the same time....

Who am I becoming?

I know I don't want to go back to the "old ways". I feel frozen to this spot. The shadows are playing with me!

However, for the first time since this pandemic began, I'm beginning to look up to see the possibility of a new kind of world. To begin to even contemplate what this could be. The thought of stepping forth into the new ways is becoming the seed of a possibility right now.

Where are you now on this journey?

As these weeds are being uprooted by the big hand, it is creating space for new roots and pale green shoots to begin to form in the earthy soil beneath me.

I know this new world is beckoning. Calling. Willing us all forward.

To dream. To imagine. To collectively vision within this enforced pause.

And so...

I'm inviting you to join me live


The Gathering over a Virtual Cuppa Tea

Date: Thursday 23rd April 2020

Time: 9am EDT | 2pm BST | 3pm CEST

It feels like the most nourishing option right now.

So, in order for me to know how many cups to lay out around the kitchen table, please:

Register Here

...and do invite your friends.

We'll open our space together by sharing a beverage of choice, mine is a tea!

Over the 60 minutes together, we'll have a chance to share where we are now; so please show up exactly as you are.

And, if it feels right for you, we can begin to dream into the world we wish to see now, when we emerge on the other side of this. Because we will emerge, we just don't know when.

I'm learning that this is not meant to be a solo journey.

It is the time to gather collectively, and, with the right support, we can journey through this together.

We are the wayfarers of these times.

The old tattered map is gone.

We are the shapeshifters. Nimble, flexible, listening, ready.

It's time to brave up to the new alternative possibilities beyond the crossroads of where we're currently at.

I'd love to chat to you over a cuppa.

So, remember:

Register Here

Wisdom keepers and elders have known that a time of great upheaval and change was going to occur. How else were we going to stop and listen to The Mother?

And stop us in our tracks she has.

Ilarion Merculieff says we're now on "Earth Time" and while we're here, we've got to "dream a new dream".

John Perkins says we've got to remember that "the world is as you dream it".

Bring your own beverage and prepare to gain the courage to dream into the new world that we wish to see.

Let's ignite a collective spark as we gather together in this global virtual village that we are living in.

See you tomorrow, Thursday.

With love,

PS: The swans are building their nest in the pond beside our house. Mamma swan readying herself to lay her eggs.

Yesterday on my walk with my son, we counted 13 fluffly newborn chicks swimming beside mamma duck.

As I come to the end of this letter to you, I'm sitting outside the front of my house. The morning sun is shining it's light on the tender new leaves of spring as the pigeon coos; the sparrows cheep and the cool spring breeze rustles the brown leaves of the beech hedge opposite me. The 2 swans fly noisily overhead.

Reminding me that all is well.

Nature will continue on regardless. Rebirthing herself over and over again.

Lets sink into her wisdom, which we all hold within us, and collectively dream in this new world, together. With linked arms and open hearts.

Beauty in nature rebirthing herself through us.



PS: Remember to register here so I know how many cups to lay out!

"Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose. Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hands and you recognize and greet it. Only then will you know how to give yourself to this world so worthy of rescue." - Martha Postlewaite ​ ​"We are the ones that are being called to rise up and reignite a new leadership paradigm." ~ Eimear Stassin
