‘Listen to your hearts
Find the truth that’s beating there.
Open to your longing
For right living in the world.
Know that it is possible
For the point of power is now.
These are the most important things:
Hold your vision. Love with passion.
Speak your truth, and also listen.
Open to the dreams that call you
To a truer manifestation
Of the spirit of creation
And honouring of sacredness.’
Hi everyone! Hello and Welcome to my website.
I am the Elder Bard for Poetry for the Bardic Order of Ynys Witrin. Have a look at the Visions of Transition video to see what I’m like! The focus of my work is exploring the role creative expression has in healing our relationship with the Earth. To this end I give talks, perform poetry, and run workshops all with the intention of helping people to become effective agent of change in a world in crisis. So please look around the eclectic mix of writing available on this website and feel free to use the material whatever way you like – only do let me know. I love to hear all the different ways people have found this site helpful.
So there are two strands to my work that are closely related. Opening to the Awen is about aligning with our individual creativity, throwing off the shackles of a society that depends on generating a sense of inadequacy in order to shape us into consumers, and discovering the abundance and joy of life as an adventure in creative exploration .
The other is eco-psychology and the Work that Re-Connects. The truth is that we are all interconnected and want to “move away from all the lies of the culture that is dying” and this work shows us the way forward though resourcing ourselves for the journey ahead, moving out of denial about what’s happening our planet, finding power for positive change and supporting each other to take the steps we want to take towards creating sustainable ways of living.
The more fully I can engage in this work the happier I am. Please contact me if you would like me to perform at an event, hold an Opening to the Awen circle, give a talk on eco-psychology or run a work that re-connects workshop. Or if you’d just like to say your piece, I’d love to hear from you.
Love and light to you all,
