In March 2021 I taught an on-line sacred art retreat titled “The Mystery of the Moon Berries”, based on a powerful dream I had during the Lockdowns. The world is currently “unlocking” and my dreams keeping taking me to the night sky and the figure of Mother Goose. I am made to understand that reservoirs of deep healing await discovery there – but also that this needs to be a deeply personal journey. There will be a different blueprint or cosmogram that unlocks healing for every single individual participant.

I will hold space and provide enough background information about the key concepts (the true nature of myths, the Night Sky and star constellations, Mother Goose and ancestral deities of Old Europe) to get people started – the rest will unfold as it is co-created by our Circle!

And please check out my books! Every chapter of every book (except the two picture books for children) contain "perception-bending" chapter exercises for you to work with at your own pace and in your own space!
