A Gathering of Women

“Sister, open your heart, fling your hopes high and set your dreams aloft.
I am here to hold your hand.”

(Maya Angelou)


Something special happens for women when we gather together in circles, creating a sacred space where we can hear and be heard, where we learn and share, support and empower each other.  The bond of “sisterhood” is the greatest gift we, as women, can give our own selves.  In the presence of our sisters, we all stand equal, allowing each of us to share our inner most fears, dreams and desires.

When we gather together, we create a circuit of energy with other loving and conscious women, we magnify the nurturing, the healing, the grace, the freedom, the creativity and the love our lives stand for.

Yemaya Blessing of the Waters Event

For the last ten years, around the first full moon of the year, I have lead a special beach side devotional rite in order to  Yemaya (also spelt Yemoja and Iemoja), the Yorùbá Orisha or Goddess of the living ocean around.  This year is no different.

On Thursday, 12th January I invite you to join me in this informal rite that will be held at Grange Beach where we will be asking Yemaya to bless the world's waterways, seas creations and all other beings that fall under Her protection.

Around 8.00pm we will be gathering on the grassed area along the forefront in front of the Grange Hotel (look for the purple banner) before heading down to the shore at 8.15pm.  The rite will commence around 8:30pm.

Encountering the Dark Goddess


The Dark Goddess is often associated with the Jungian “Shadow self”, an archetype that represents the neglected side of our nature that can drag us down into a pit of despair.  In his book, Shadow Dance: Liberating the Power and Creativity of Your Dark Side, David Richo describes the shadow as "that part of us that is incompatible with who we think we are or are supposed to be. It is the realm beyond our limits, the place where we are more than we seem".  He further states that it is "ironically humorous because the opposite of our self-image proves to be true in spite of all our tricky attempts not to believe or display it."

Psychic Development Course starting soon

Starting Wednesday, 7th September for initially four weeks until 28th September with the possibility of evolving into a regular group, "Sacred Journeying", a course in exploring the psychic centres, will be taking place.
Psychic (sometimes also referred to as "intuitive") development is learning to open yourself up to your guides, the higher Universal energy or even listening to your higher self (or subconscious) and listening to these often subtle messages that come through. In essence we are ALL psychic or at least have the ability - it is just that we have closed off this ability for various reasons.
