Druid, author, teacherr

I hear the ancestors in the wind. I breathe in their ancient breath, feeling the sun upon my shoulders and the earth beneath my feet. I honour nature, and allow my love for the natural world to inspire me to live a life in balance and harmony. I feel the spark of life dancing deep within my soul as I gaze into the fire’s flame, carrying the warmth of the embers and the light in the darkness. I drink in the waters of life, holding, sustaining, teaching of flow and release. I can hear the pulsing heart of these ancient isles, rich with spirit and history, the tales of the land rising like morning's mist from a still, silent lake.
