Are you longing for authenticity and truth both within yourself and in this current culture. Are you longing to be in touch with your passion and purpose again, or more deeply; for a way of living that will bear gifts for humans with Earth Community. If so, here's a few tricks and treats as we cross the threshold into Mystery's dark ways. Here's a place to come and participate in a deeper conversation that gets to the roots of it all; to listen to and remember the inner true news from the source, from the ground up; to return with clearer eyes, refreshed bodies, and new insights for direction in our current ecological crisis time. If this speaks to you, read on.....
Here are weavings between Nature and Psyche who will invite you deeper into your Journey to Soul in this dark descent where the Ancient, Present, and Future Ones meet in Service of what needs to become....you might even say, a different kind of Election. Weave on..... offerings, poetry, images, why would you want to make such a journey, why with Wendy, and how to make contact for further information and booking.

~Wendy is passionate about this unique time we are participating in, what Joanna Macy calls 'The Great Turning'.
~She is following her unique path since a surprising encounter in the Arrochar Alps, Scotland in early 1990 which changed her direction and focus asking for her return to Scotland.
~Since then Wendy has been devoted to creating ways of inviting people into remembering conversations with an animate, intelligent and en-souled Earth and Earth Community; to trust the ways we are shaped by and live from such experiences on the Journey to Soul.
IN THESE OFFERINGS YOU WILL:
~experience that humans are not alone in working with the current ecological revolution; that all the voices of the others are offering themselves in this conversation when we listen. I believe humans are not going to go far without listening to the voices of the others. This Pop-Up Mystery School is another way of deeply engaging in and contributing to our current tasks and dilemmas.
~experience ways of crossing between Nature and Psyche through wanderings on the land, dreams, poetry, art, conversation and more.
~experience a remembering, or deepening of remembering, of our greater human conversation with each other and Earth Community: birds, waves, sounds, otters, rocks, clouds, rain, air and more.
~experience ways that these ones are in specific conversation with each of us, longing for us to bring our unique soul/eco-niche, the place we were born to indwell and live where everything is experienced as it is, intimately entwined in one and at the same time unique, all in an alluring dance of offerings.
~experience the old ways of who we are, what Thomas Berry called 'Earth's Dreaming'; a shift from being human-centred to Earth-centred thus changing our ways and focus into the world of ie politics, education, economics, religion. This way is also gathering pace right now and needs our urgent attention. Here is an opportunity for offering such attention to what/who is our unique contribution at this time. We cannot figure it out, only surrender. Time for a different conversation.
~experience participating in the re-enchantment of the Earth, and of humankind as integral to her authentic nature and our own.
~experience a palette of practices that can enable, open and support continuing the journey: through Council, Dreamwork, Deep Imagination, Crossing between the species, Sacred Rhythm, Shadow, Art, Poetry and more.
