Dearest Sisters,

It’s half term and I’m balancing being a mama, crafting, writing, packing up orders and preparing for my Thirteen Moons Samhain vigil this weekend…luckily I’m in my ‘Summer phase’ in my cycle…so it’s all possible! I’m so looking forward to circling with my group; connecting with the ancestors and silent time on the land! Our Red Tent group are having a Drumming in the Ancestors evening a couple of days later…feeling very blessed to be part of such a wonderful community.samhain

This week I’ve shared a new video about my relationship with my handmade drums – find out what  I use them for, how women have used drums over the years and how a drum can lead you to your tribe, connect you to other women and help you find your rhythm in life…

Also on the blog … a call for support for the Love Zimbabwe Mothers project – can you help? Find out here.
