Kennaz – the blazing torch that leads to inner Sovereignty

As we go into the Autumn Equinox, we can seek guidance from the rune Ken or Kennaz – the Old Norse rune most associated with this turning of the seasons. And it seems to me that this year, its guidance is needed more than ever, because Ken symbolises the ultimate in the sort of blazing…

Removing a family curse

I remember early in my shamanic training feeling horrified when our teacher told us that we’d gain great wisdom from working with our ancestors. “What that bunch of drunks?” I thought to myself, “I’ve never seen them sober, especially that lot from Liverpool. You’re saying that I should go to them for spiritual advice?” The…

The Mystery of the Glastonbury Zodiac

I have been gestating, over the last nine years, a story and a message that the Glastonbury Zodiac has been showing me. The vision was eventually birthed through a combination of studying Katharine Maltwood’s books on the zodiac – a 30-mile round of colossal earthwork giants on the Somerset Levels – and then going on…

A Guide to the Faeries of Avalon

There are almost as many names for faeries in these parts as there are stories about them, courtesy of the exiled Irish and Welsh whose memories still remain like holographic movies hovering in the morphogenic fields of the land they left behind. To the Irish, the faeries are known as the Tuatha da Danaan, and…
