Beltane Blessings!

Celebrating Beltane by firewalking with drumming by Jen Grange of Lakeland Wellbeing

It’s finally here! Beltane is my favourite festival of the year. I can’t tell you how excited I am (although if you’ve met me in person or seen me online, you can probably guess! ) Today (May Day) is traditional Beltane – the Celtic fire festival celebrating the midpoint between the spring equinox and summer solstice. Astrological Beltane […]

Fire walking – how it changed my life

Fire walking to heal the witch wound

I’ve had some adventures in my life, but Fire Walking is the most empowering thing I have ever done! The first time I tried fire walking I was terrified! Always one for a challenge I was keen to give it a go but seriously, how could I walk over 600 degree coals without being burned? It […]

What is the witch wound and how can we heal it?

So, what is forest bathing, and why is it good for us?

If I had a pound for every time I was asked “Do I need to bring my swimming costume?” for forest bathing in the Lake District, I’d be a rich woman! It sounds a bit peculiar doesn’t it, to bathe in a forest and perhaps implies some state of undress, however I can assure you […]

Why is self-care so important?

I read an article in a popular newspaper recently that said we are all so exhausted (referring to the situation over these last few years) that we need another word for it! But how do we deal with exhaustion? The pressure we have from the constant negative bombardment of the media, the pressure of work […]
