Are your questions talking to you?

‘Do we decide questions at all? We decide answers, no doubt, but surely the questions decide us.’ Lewis Carroll

Is there a value to our questions that we haven’t quite explored yet?

Questions run around in my mind that relate to our existence, the web of life, of which we are somehow a part. What is interesting to me is that, once voiced, it seems that everybody at some point in their lives asks the same questions. As Lewis Carroll says above, we are free to choose the answers but it would seem that the questions are a constant in our lives, that innately create a connection between us. If we were to locate the origin of the questions themselves, then perhaps we would be part way to finding the answers. What if the point is not only to locate answers to the questions but to see the existence of the questions as their own answeras a clue?   [Read more…] about Are your questions talking to you?

The Spirit of Sound: Singing, Healing & Community – May 26, 7.30pm. Grace Cathedral, SF.

Coming together ~ a time for renewal and connection. There are many ways to be a peaceful presence on this Earth; a social activist, a personal healer, an environmentalist, an artist… a parent to life. We might be involved in politics, we might write, campaign, converse, communicate. There is something else we can do that heals the inner framework that both influences, and is influenced by, our rich, interactive, world: we can deepen into our consciousness, through shared sound. As a sound healer, I know the value that sharing through sound brings, and I get to witness the unity that develops on all platforms, through the sacred act of singing in communion. This brief, yet valuable, visit into the realms of sound and healing, invites us to experience this together. Come rest in the harmony of community. It is time to gather, it is time to sing. Come join us, in the Spirit of Sound! ADVANCE TIX ON EVENTBRITE [Read more…] about The Spirit of Sound: Singing, Healing & Community – May 26, 7.30pm. Grace Cathedral, SF.

Building the boat, whilst out at sea.

Sometimes we just don’t know what’s around the corner.

About 6 months ago, I started working with an organisation called YesCalifornia; I was nervous about the direction the world was headed, and terrified that the new administration were going to plummet us into new depths of social conflict and environmental degradation. If life wanted to get my attention, this was the way to do it. Put Trump in as president, frighten my feminist values and my feminine self, whilst concurrently threatening my home, my planet, my environment, and the communities around me, as well as my values around education, freedom of speech and the desire not to go to war, for anything. Serendipity left nothing out. [Read more…] about Building the boat, whilst out at sea.
