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, it is because something is moving that asks for the particular holding and exploratory journeying of sisterhood and brotherhood, in the loose community we are always becoming anew (Secret Garden is not

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 to Being, the deepest invitation of falling in love

Maytime….delicious abundance and vitality abound and Karen asked me in a blog comment to write about falling in love and relationship…... The word ‘relationship’ implies the negotiation between two or more separate identities, two or more different perspectives.
