Agenda-Free Aliveness

Freedom is agenda - free. Freedom may still be drawn to work with apparent people in a healing and transformational environment. Here's what Joy had to say about that! Life is not serious. Simply, utterly whole. If you are drawn by this message, there is a day of dialogue, talk, silence and laughter exploring in…

She is in All – and in both Man and Woman

Why we sit in same gender circles in Secret Garden When we invite men and women to sit in circles of their own gender, a separate event or within an ongoing mixed gender group, it is because something is moving that asks for the particular holding and exploratory journeying of sisterhood and brotherhood, in the…

The Insistent Me

Wholeness is unconditional love ..... it is the play of everything. Including the insistent and demanding nature of separate self. Realisation of the unconditional love of Being is not a new age 'love and light' fluffiness and denial of 'reality'. Pain or war or unconsciousness and all the shadows of shame, fear, guilt and rage…

Awakening and Emotional Challenges

Ordinary extraordinary THIS is it. That can be a frustrating thing to hear for someone who is seeking Freedom or healing, because the ego is looking for something bigger, ‘special’. Once there is a glimpse of empty fullness, the glistening light and love of creation, it is seen clearly as all that could ever truly…

Being Honest

This is a guest blog from Tim my beloved life partner, who plays an essential part in Secret Garden both in the background between groups and supporting me and co-facilitating during them.

Gratitude

We all have many things it is so easy to be grateful for - food on the table, shelter, a society more safe and stable than many. A beautiful practice is to recall on waking each morning some of the thing you are already grateful for. This will make real shifts in your vibration very…

Death, Loss and Endings

The bottom line This life and the apparent creation everywhere cannot be possessed. ‘You’ are not separate from anything that appears in manifestation. Energy expresses as every single possibility and it is constantly changing. Energy is a shapeshifter, a dancer. So everything you love, everything you want to keep, everyone you want to hold to…

She is in All – Man and Woman

She is in Man and Woman Why we sit in same gender circles occasionally in Secret Garden Gender is not who you are-yet it appears to make a very big difference! When we invite men and women to sit in circles of their own gender, it is because something is moving in the loose community…

Unbounded Aliveness

'You' are unbounded aliveness, 'you' are utter stillness, 'you' are everything, 'you' are No-thing, 'you' are all that is, 'you' are the essence, the source of all. Secret Garden has nothing to offer the personality. There are no ‘solutions’ to the whirligig of pleasure & pain & perceived problems of relationship, work, health, money, except…

Ineffable Love

Circles are always unique and are highly experiential - they are about YOU, your freedom to live the fullness of being, ecologically and sustainably, in your chosen life. Realisation of the unconditional love of Being is not a new age 'love and light' fluffiness and denial of 'reality'. Wholeness is unconditional love because it allows the play…
