Moving through Anger


Posted By on Jan 13, 2016

Wolf Vision by Aaron Paquette   “Anger is just sad’s bodyguard” Liza Palmer This quote passed my way recently and for me it resonates with profound simple truth.

When we allow ourselves to touch the layers of grief within we give our Spirit the freedom to flow with the rhythms of life. A Meditation on...

Hawthorn Being by Faith Nolton   There is a favourite bench where I like to sit at Lemoines’ Point just beside the open air pavilion, a bench placed fourteen years ago in memory of a family’s lost son and brother.

Willow Art by Kristen Fagan   In the Chinese Five Elements framework spring is the season of Wood Energy which is connected to new growth and forward movement in life, movement which is in line with our Soul’s vision and purpose.

Nature’s Love Song by Maxine Noel   A voice of deep beauty, flowing from an open heart, crossed my path as a gift today. Speaking of our great need for connection with Mother Earth, and with each other, this man of deep presence, Tim Macartney, called to us to honour our dreamers, our poets, and our doers.  With conviction and gentle strength he reminded us of our need to live with an open heart, and to honour all Life with...

Fireflies

Photography by Yume Cyan   Fireflies dance close to mother earth in the warm night air And I find myself seeking out small flames within Points of beauty where spirit touches down on an open thought And light intertwines with rivulets of impulse Cascading out along meridians of desire   My hands holding the warmth of your skin Connecting with the undercurrents of a life Gravitating towards the sun   By Danielle...
