I’m landing from a wonderful weekend of ceremony and sacred tattoo, beautiful circles of women gathered and supported one another to receive a ‘sacred scar’, it was a truly powerful experience which will echo for some time to come I’m sure. I’m lucky enough to know the wonderful Scar Midwife Suzi Edwards who travelled to the wilds of West Wales to support us in finding our markings, markings that have been singing to our skin for many years….just waiting for the right time to be painted in! Sacred Scaring is an ancient practice and powerful blood magic ritual, one of my favourite kinds of magic! Suzi and I have already pencilled in a date for next year, so watch this space!
