This is an all-new format for my sharings here: I’m working with limited tech… this is bringing me more freedom and gifts, rather than any sense of scarcity (as conventional ‘logic’ would dictate)… It’s helping me see the possibility of a much-simplified online presence.
I’d love to invite you to listen in to this podcast with full bodymindspirit attention, whilst doing something active and/ or creative: these are living transmissions, intentioned towards your sentience and into our collective co-creative expansiveness.
You can keep in touch with me via my Patreon and support me via my Gifting page.
Aaaah, halloooo gorgeous, sacred living women and men!
My podcast today is probably the one I’ve been most excited and also nervous about sharing: really delving deep into the Truth about Art, and the Truth about our Divine Co-Creative capacity, is hard in today’s climate of suppression-of-all-things! Our very language is very distorted – in many ways is full-inverted – so expression around what our True Nature is, can easily be lost in type. Hence, living voice, spontaneous sharing and flow of vitality in the right everymoment – this seems the best way!
I’ll be sharing much more on this vast mystical subject via my Patreon very soon…
The Co-Creation Sessions
Our Co-Creative Sessions have moved to Zoho rather than Jitsi – it’s more stable and clear! We meet twice every Wednesday – 11 am and 4 pm Rome, Italy time… painting, writing, composing, playing, exploring, sewing…
Just now we have space for up to 10 beautiful souls… If you’d like to get access to the links to join our next sessions, contact me directly: I send them out via my Zoho mailing list, my Patreon and on Signal App, and if you send me a request, I’ll add your email or Signal profile.
I’ve been in a bit of a hietus these past two weeks – immersed fully in gardening and in deconstructing and reconstructing this sweatercoat – inspired by Katwise’s glorious creations!As you’ll hear/ see from my podcast below, it has been a powerful experience…
This is the first time in many, many years that I’ve made a garment just for myself: purely, indulgently, pleasure-fully my own second skin. This brought up a lot of feeling about contraction and limitations imposed (by myself ultimately!) on me, and helped open a whole new area of sovereignty and self-expression: the moment when I put the coat on and it actually fitted, was a potent alchemical gateway….
LIVE PAINTING SESSIONS / THE NEW CO-CREATION SESSIONS
Our sessions are evolving! We all felt that it might be exciting to also embrace other materials, to interweave our multiple talents, disciplines and projects – so beginning this week – every Wednesday at 11 am and 4 pm Rome, Italy time, we’ll be opening up also to sewing, music, writing, and any other practise that will fit into our Jitsi meeting room! See/ hear/ feel you there.

I felt a sentience around language rise up in the past year or so – centred around the embodied sense of my own not-yet-learned mother tongue, which would’ve anchored my intimate relationship with land, season, community and all things. I felt this all aligning inside me – a ripeness of it being ready to awake, and the unfolding of a wider view of the world, unrestricted by the rigidity of mainstream language norms.
A podcast with Tiokasing Ghosthorse reconnected this non-linear sentience with my front-lobe, conventional-logic mind. His elegant explanation around the quantum difference between his people’s Lakota language, and English confirmed my growing intuitive around indigenous languages, and what is lost when they are undermined – or violently oppressed (as with Scottish Gàidhlig): a people’s intimate relationship-with-all-things is so effectively, deeply censored, by their having a language of competition, separation, compartmentalising replace their own.
English in particular is a language rooted in Empire and subjugation of all things natural, papal power and assumption of supreme white man as god authority: this separates us profoundly from spirit, from feeling, from deeper knowing. A language with such roots also asks us to stay at the front of the brain pushing forward, to push from the front of the tongue and mouth forcing our will on the world. It makes us ignore heart and pelvis, and thus to lose the immense creative power of our being whole, and using the sum-of-our-parts as one great force for Life.
It’s powerful to live in a time when we are relearning the many languages that have been oppressed through destruction of our indigenous tongues: ecological, wholistic word-structures, the language of sentience and of the sacredness of Life, of the liberated mind-body-spirit – and the language of the deep feminine.
My own life has been blessed and enriched both through being immersed in multiple languages from countries other than my own (German, Greek, Italian), and through re-finding languages that I hadn’t understood earlier were so incredibly valuable, and necessary – languages with depth, meaning and treasure in them; the language of pain, the language of poverty, the voice of my pelvis and core energy source, and my own land’s mother tongue.
I spent at least 3 decades immersed in the intuitive-spontaneous act of making art, largely to gain alignment with Truth, with the synchronicity of Life – thus to stabilise and harmonise everything around me.
But what unfolded in parallel with this fluency in the language of the sentient world, was a proficiency in the language of the sacred feminine: this vital force so powerfully held in the dark from peoples’ lives, and so efficiently kept from our structures of power.
As I feel the language of the deep feminine flowing through me, via my knowing my own body more and more, through unblocking stuck patterns, through speaking emotion when it calls out, through finding throat-lungs-heart-mind interconnectedness via my mother-tongue… Through listening to the voice that flows through all things – I begin to be whole, and I become a part of a whole world again. Not a static, cold, dead world of ‘logic’ but a – vibrant, dynamic, alive world of Life.
I am an intimate part of this Life-full world, as we all are: we’re all movers within the intimate fabric of the world; through our knowing its vibration through our whole being – through speaking the True language of all things – we become fluent speakers of our indigenous wisdom.
And here’s an additional video on Learning A Language Successfully 🙂
I’ll be announcing openings in the new year for The Divine Creative mentoring programme, which will be supporting the immense creative potential of wise humans like yourself, in challenges like this reweaving of the divine feminine into our world… In the meantime:
