EDITION 40 - October 2012


Finding the precious gift!

Welcome to the October
2012 Newsletter.

Earlier in the year I lost my Mum (Lola), she was an inspiration to me on so many levels. At the time of loosing her I could only feel confusion and deep loss. However after giving myself all the quality time that I needed to really feel into the loss, I was able to really get the beautiful gift that she left. 

She was an extremely caring person that made time for anybody who needed someone to really listen. She knew her values and what she stood for and wasn't afraid to express this. 

It was in my time away that I deeply connected to all of the beautiful things about my mother. One of the things I remembered with clarity was why I originally started this work.  

I began this path so that I do my best to be there for people, to make a difference to their quality of life. Something Mum use to say was..."people don't care about how much you know, they care about how much you care". By walking my own chosen path, I feel that I am able to pass on my Mum's legacy.  

It's often only when we can find some positive reason for something so negative, that we can find closure and move on and fully accept the experiences that life brings us.

2012 is bringing everything unlike love to the surface to be healed. We have choice to either strive or thrive? There has never been a more important time for community to come together to support one another. Community that is willing and able to be real and stop supporting you to hide your true essence. In the coming weeks we will be launching our firstFire Circle for Men here in Newcastle .

So I am calling on all men young and old to book their place in the sacred circle. And I am calling on all woman to invite your male friends and male companions and your sons to come and join us! (see details below).

It feels great to be back on deck and I look forward to connecting with you soon. Stay tuned for many more local events happening soon.

With Love



'Fire Circle for Men'

The 'Fire Circle' offers men an opportunity to gather together in a deep, authentic and truthful way. It's an opportunity for each man to feel the importance of learning to honour his own capacity to become more present, sit deeper within his truth, connect to his heart, offer his wisdom, and feel his connection to mother earth.

The Fire Circle is also a place where men of all ages are brought together. The purpose of this is to support the older men to continue being valuable in the community, and to offer younger men, teenagers and boys a place where they can feel accepted for who they are, and learn from the life experience and collective wisdom of their elders.

The fire circle is also a place where men can begin to heal the collective wounds of the 'masculine'.  The masculine has been out of balance on our planet for some time and the masculines quest for freedom has been expressed in disconnected ways.; creating wars, abusive and oppressive acts against the feminine and against our planet, and the masculine has lived for power, wealth, force and might, rather than for love, unity and the stewardship of life.

The Fire Circle is designed to support you to develop your sensitivity and awareness to the earth, to each other and also to our differences. We will prepare ourselves for entry into the fire circle where we sit and take part in open sharing, we learn the art of respectful communication and powerful listening, and we become familiar with the guidelines of circle work. We also learn about the lightness of not taking ourselves too seriously, and we are encouraged to have fun, laugh and enjoy simply being together. 

Young men - There is also deeper intention for the boys and young men. Within this safe and confidential environment, an awareness of self and the other is heightened. Responsibility for each person’s impact on others is increased. When a young man is respected and listened to without judgment, his capacity for inner resilience increases exponentially. In the Fire Circle the presence of older men from the community, also fosters a non-confrontational and reciprocal mentoring environment. 

The Fire Circle is being held in Newcastle and will take place every 2nd Saturday of the month. They will begin on October 13th.

Bookings MUST be made, as strictly LIMITED places available!
