At the Stillpoint

On March 18, 2015, in Katheryn's Blog, by katheryn

My toddler son and my husband had all just come off of a long and wonderful camp we ran together on dartmoor in England for 12 years in wild spaces off grid for about 100 hearty folks to celebrate their bodies and living together in good company.  We spent much of these 2 weeks barefoot […]

 

Practice of Awe

On March 11, 2015, in Katheryn's Blog, by katheryn

This is one of the most magical places on the planet for me. Bright pink and green carpets of heather flow over the land while pungent earthy peat and coconut scented Gorse fill the air. Stone circles and megalithic sites pierce the moody skies. And strong winds clear cobwebs from my heart and carry ravens to me […]

 

Back and Forth Between the Worlds

On March 11, 2015, in Katheryn's Blog, by katheryn

Back and forth. Up and down. In and out. I cherish my capacity to be multi-faceted and flexible. I love the improvisation and creativity that comes with this practice. Perhaps it is just me asserting my right to be paradoxical especially as a woman. I love this dance with the non-dualistic. And, this dance has […]

 

Come Out and Play

On March 11, 2015, in Katheryn's Blog, by katheryn

My childhood bedroom was covered in colorful murals that I painted when I was 9.  The images were basically a wetland scene full of a giant pond bursting with iridescent green dragonflies, fat cat tails, ladybirds, exotic magenta flowers, bright cobalt beetles and a cast of a thousand other creatures with wings or fur or feathers wrapping […]

 

Sunshine

On March 11, 2015, in Katheryn's Blog, by katheryn

Been playing, gardening, working and cycling in the glorious sunshine this week. Amazing! Wondrous! Delicious! Feels like Spring has sprung. The sparkling frog spawn is adorning the pond plants and edges like necklaces.  The birdsong just before Dawn announces longer days I hunger for at last. And the snowdrops, daffodils and grape hyacinths sing their colourful songs as […]

Wisdom Often Comes in Simple Places

On April 2, 2014, in Katheryn's Blog, by katheryn

  A friend of mine spotted a car bumper sticker recently saying: “if you lived in your heart, you’d be home right now”. This makes me grin from ear to ear. Always good to have humour AND consciousness! Welcome home… every moment. You are already there.  “if you lived in your heart, you’d be home […]

 

Makers Creating Resilience: Re-skilling our communities and our lives

On March 12, 2014, in Katheryn's Blog, by katheryn

One of the things that has made the biggest  impact on my life and sanity has been an ongoing practice as a maker. This could be sewing or straw-bale building as well as cooking delicious meals, baking, or preserving jams or pestos from the garden.  My hands NEED to create and these engaging activities keep […]
