Getting a Spiritual Hair Cut

It struck me as quite funny how surrendering to divine will can be a bit like getting a hair cut. You suddenly have a flash of inspiration and decide to have a really radical haircut, so different from what you currently have, it’s like night and day. But then the mind kicks in and you end up only having an inch or two snipped. After a short while you realise that more needs to go and so off you go … Continue reading

What’s the GAC (Glastonbury Art Collective) up to Now?

It’s been a month since the Glastonbury Art Collective presented its first ever art exhibition in Glastonbury, spearheaded by Jessica Morris and held in the Grail Centre, Chilkwell Street. For those of you who didn’t manage to get down to the venue in person, here is a short video I made of the exhibits by following this link: Glastonbury Art Collective Exhibition.

Silk Painting and Mandalas in Lincombe Barn, Bristol

Silk painting is such a joy to do and it’s even more joy when others join you in a group. And I had that pleasure at the weekend when 3 other aspiring silk painters met with me to create their own silk mandalas. We were in a venue I haven’t worked in before. Lincombe Barn is the home of the Downend Folkhouse Association, just past Bristol City limits, a few metres into South Gloucestershire. It was such a beautifully warm … Continue reading

Meeting with Jessica Rachelle Morris in the Grail Centre Glastonbury

She recently created an artists collective – the Glastonbury Arts Collective (GAC) – and from that gave birth to an amazing exhibition which is due … Continue reading

Adding Tweetable to my WordPress Blog

Just spent quite a bit of time trying to add this app to my blog. After several attempts it’s at last installed and now I have a little widget in my sidebar with my tweets. When I add a blog post, it lets me tweet it out straight away and includes branding with a link back to my site. Can’t be bad, can it? It means less work whenever I complete a blog post.

Silk Window Picture Giveaway

I just wanted to share with you one of the round silk window pictures that I paint with Glastonbury Tor in the centre. They’re really quite easy to do: first of all I mark the centre and then draw 2 or 3 circles with one of those magic fabric markers that fades with time. Then I draw a design on the sign with gold resist. The next stage is to take silk paints (paints, not the dyes) and colour in … Continue reading

Communicating with Integrity For the Highest Good of all Concerned

Today was day 11 of the 30 day challenge I am doing with a lovely friend of mine, Aquara Soma. We decided spontaneously just under 2 weeks ago to do this challenge and to contemplate ‘A Question of Resonance’. And of course, we chose to broadcast our daily sharings on Blog Talk Radio. I’d love you to watch this video to hear what we’ve been discussing over the past couple of days: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvFkHNwEZVY I’ve been noticing big changes in my … Continue reading
