A Pilgrimage to the Edge of the World

The Deer Goddess – an Ancestral Mother

Spring is exploding here in the foothills of the Appalachians as the ‘greening’ of the landscape intensifies. I’m always transfixed by spring which turns stark winter trees into great cathedrals of green. The greening obscures neighbors houses and becomes a sheltered refuge for birds and squirrels as we welcome swifts, hummingbirds and monarch butterflies.

We’ve already had days so hot they remind us of the blazing summer heat to come T – too severe for someone born in far more northern latitudes.

Drums of the Ancestral  Mothers

For the last month i’ve been weaving invisible threads in preparation for the first ‘Ancestral Mothers of Scotland Retreat’ – everything is booked and organized and I head off home tomorrow!

I’m looking forward to two weeks of ritual and ceremony of visiting interesting sites and staying in the once place on the Island of the Big Women (Isle of Eigg). Of all the sites we will be visiting on a small island which is only 3 miles by 5 miles I am excited to learn of a site which is new to me called The Oracle – an underground cave of sorts and possibly an Oracle site! I’ll be sharing more about this and all the other sites after our retreat but oh how this sites stirs the imagination! Wonderful inspiration for an otherworldly journey.

I’ll be posting on the journey here on the website as well as my Instagram account – which you can find here
