Wishing you all a Peaceful Christmas
and Healthy 2021

From my hearth to yours - I send you my best wishes as we experience a very different Christmas.  I am able to light my wood burner (a joy!), and will add candles and of course fairy lights to bring sparkle into the festive days.

Bringing LIGHT into our homes is a tradition that has been followed for thousands of years, across all traditions  - and as we're just past the Solstice, the days really are getting longer.  The wheel of the year turns, just as it always has done, hold on, have faith!

If we have practised yoga and/or chant together this year - thank you SO much for your support.  The classes, workshops and monthly chant group have provided structure, routine and support for us all - and it has been a real privilege to keep connected.  If our paths haven't crossed this year - there's always 2021!

There is a link here for the Birch Moon Podcasts - I've mentioned this before, and whilst not the most professional of recordings (!) they are providing support for many as they listen in or follow a pranayama or Yoga Nidra practice, a relaxation or the talk on Positive Psychology.  They're free - and for you to enjoy.  

A Winter Solstice Blessing

May you have a warm heart,
open hands,
a creative mind.
May you experience inspiration and brilliance,
clarity and focus.
May you laugh richly and deeply.
May you circle and celebrate,
May you change and grow
May that which is waiting to be unlocked
be freed.
And may you soar with the knowing
that you are carried by a great wind across the sky.
