Eco-psychologist, counsellor and poet
‘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.’
Welcome to my website.
This quotation from the poem that I produced to become the Chaired Bard of Glastonbury in 2009 still is as good a summary of my ‘take’ on life as I’ve ever produced. I seek to live authentically, to find my path of heart and the courage to follow it and to help others do likewise.
However you have found yourself here – through meeting me, because it’s a link from a workshop I’m offering or simply because you’ve stumbled across this website randomly, please contact me and let me know!
I recognise that this website is in dire need of updating and as I get clearer what exactly I’m doing next (I’m currently in a great state of flux) I intend to replace it with something much more ‘professional’ in presentation. Still I think something will be lost in doing so because what’s here in its patchwork imperfection is a true reflection of who I am.
In terms of how I want to progress, the Goodwill Patterns are at the heart of the work I do myself. In particular I have come to see forgiveness as a powerful and important practice and I want to offer ‘The Power of Forgiveness’ workshops to share the tranformative process I have found so helpful in my own life.
Alongside that I recognise that having studied ecopsychology for thirty years I am not entitled to call myself an ecopsychologist and in this capacity I am expanding beyond the Work that Re-connects approach I initially trained in with Joanna Macy to offer my own ‘take’ on ecopsychology.
In September (14th to 18th) I’ll be at Green Earth Awakening to talk about my approach to ecopsychology and to do a Work that Reconnects workshop.
In the pipeline there’s a Council of All Beings in Hallr Woods in the Spring and some talks and workshops in Southampton that I’m planning.
PLEASE let me know if you’d like me to come and talk about either the forgiveness process or ecopsychology where you live as the one advantage of being homeless is that I can go anywhere!!
Blessings on your paths.
