Dear Friends,


Spring is here and the colours are riveting.... I love this time of year! I celebrated my birthday in March and I am looking forward to the Summer Solstice event at the Ancient Technology Centre on the 22.06.24.


We love our circles in the Roundhouse, the magic is in the name – we are in a circle, in a setting that reminds of ancient times, everyone with an instrument, be it drums or rattles, shakers or boomwackers, we play in rhythm... we play loud and we chime quietly.... we watch the flames and embrace the atmosphere, heighten the vibe with our voices...


The stories are wonderful and having had the pleasure of playing with so many at the Ancient Tech has been a joy over the years! Shona will be with me again, her voice is better than mine but I can sing loud... and so will you hopefully – feeling blessed to be there again on Saturday 22.6.2024 . May the sky be clear and light, the vibes high and merry.



Before that date, I am pleased to facilitate at the Big Freezone Festival – 30th of May to 2nd of June.



and I am really looking forward to facilitating at the "Sounds Beautiful Festival" with a subject matter close to my heart, the music and sounds will be awesome, and it is local to me! Dates are 27th -30th of June.



If you like the pan and the beautiful sounds they make, check out Hangout UK Festival, starting 5th September near Guildford, one of my favourite festivals.



In fact this coming weekend 24-27th May we shall be at the Great Dorset Summer Camp of Musical Merriment, it is a small festival organised by the Hangout team and as it is our first festival of the year. We are excited and I cannot wait !



Enjoy Spring, be merry and keep all chins up !


With Love

We had another wonderful celebration at the Ancient Technology centre on Friday the 22nd of December. It was a long dark night, but the weather stayed clear, and we sang and drummed, ate, and drank. It is a month ago but with Christmas that following weekend and the New Year, of the Gregorian calendar, beginning, I only decided today to write. The days are still too short but just a tad longer every day, the mornings dark yet.

 

I share a few clips from the 22nd of December.

 

and a fun version of Fairytale of New York

 

To me it seems a long time ago now, I want to have the smell of spring in the air, but not quite yet (except on the sunny days...we had quite a few, crispy and clear ones, today rain and storm. Variety they say, is the spice of life.

 

Looking ahead, I am pleased to have confirmed the Big Freezone Festival – 30th May to 2nd of June 2024.

 

Check out the early Bird offer on:  https://freezonefestival.co.uk/

 

and Sounds Beautiful Festival 27th – 30th of June, check out the early bird offer here as well:

 

 

It cheers me that there are events ahead which make me think of sun and swimming and just enjoying life – without wrapping up, putting boots on and finding gloves. This is hermit time, for much of the time, and it's just as well that I have a fairly sunny disposition and manage to pull myself up when the rain lashes.

 

In fact, it reminds me of a song that I spontaneously sang to the pan, as it is always conducive to me, and then I sang over it and Youtubed it, warts and all.

 

 

Enjoy the weather. Spring is soon here.

I am writing this on the 5th of November, a week after our lovely event at the Ancient Technology Centre, a wonderful venue for Earth Kin events. Ellie Brooks put on another fabulous evening of singing with Lu Davis, listening to Claire Hillier and Ellie, and chanting with Shona Dunn and myself with all my drums, shakers, and chimes.


This time we had food and drink – warm or cold – 2 big fires, one in the main roundhouse and another by the kitchen. All very welcome as it was a stormy night, and it gets muddy, and it is very dark … BUT it was a full house, and we had a wonderful time.


We were over 200 peeps, and it never fails to delight me how the harmony appears when people sing together and make music. Most of us love listening to music, we know how uplifting (or saddening) music can be – the word 'frequency' no longer raises eyebrows (at least not in my world).


We honoured our ancestors and the 4 directions as we always do at these events, and it always uplifts to do this in a large group. The word is out that group meditations with a positive intention work wonders and on an evening like last week, there is a palpable joy in the air. I share some photos and a few clips on Youtube which we recorded.


Here are the videos on Youtube.





A December event is planned, and details will follow – we are at the beginning of November but the time to the end of 2023 will fly by. Time seems to run faster; I know they used to say 'its age' which makes one say that, but I hear it from the young generation too. We are in the 'shift' and I am glad I spelled that right


Event like this last Samhain and others I was fortunate enough to attend are doing a lot to lift the general vibe - with so much fear mongering in the mainstream media, it is good to have an alternative perspective. I am a fan of Dolores Cannon and I was fortunate to attend one of her events here in Bournemouth before she passed – amazing teachings and I share her video about the Three Waves of Volunteers which impressed me much.



I believe it only resonates with some, but it is worth a listen if you feel many things lack explanation.


The idea of being a Volunteer appealed to me then and ever more so now in 2023. Much of the last 3 years have been spent with research for me – my last circle on the 16th of March 2020 created more time for me than I would have ever given myself to study (I know we always learn but I sat down and listened to many perspectives and feel most had more time than ever before and many used this time productively).


With no ... what was it called again … ' furlough'? ... I had never heard that word, nor did I get any because I have been self-employed for a very long time. I am sure most have had their journey over the last 3 years and I feel the light is clearly emerging. They say it is darkest before the dawn, I hope this is true as many are tired and some no longer want to be here.


We all have to delve here for ourselves but there is much information available (not the mainstream, we know the revolution will not be televised... alas many have recorded themselves and others to show a different way). I can see that I made mistakes, but challenge can be an opportunity for growth, and I am glad that I can see it that way. So, I do my bit and share some uplifting videos here and use my Facebook to share others who have been using critical thinking to mistakes… these times.


According to Dolores, we all decided to be here and I choose to believe her I have been a member of empowerthepeople.earth for the last 10 months and apart from studying the law and legal (or better the difference between these 2), I am enjoying the Saturday scriptures where we study and interpret the Torah - a fascinating journey for someone like me, who was never religious as such. I am spirit in an earth suit, and I try and look after that as best as I know how; there is always new knowledge about this coming out and I feel it is up to us to make sure our new world is full of critical thinkers and discerning way showers.


Thank you for reading to the end. It is a beautiful 5th of November and with any luck we shall have a bonfire and a sing song around this tonight! Blessings and enjoy the last 2 months of 2023.
