Happy new year 2021!

We have had a wonderful 2021. Despite ongoing challenges in the outside world, we have loved connecting with guests old and new at Eco Retreats in a full and busy season!

2021 also saw the birth of our third baby Phoenix, free-birthed at our home in the forest in late July. Once again I have deeply felt the miracle of new birth, and the immense power of the Universal energy that surged through me as I birthed Phoenix. Caring for a tiny baby reunites us with unconditional love; the fullness of the trust and love we give and receive is awe-inspiring and humbling.

The name Phoenix means rebirth and transformation – fitting for this period of transition we are in as a global society. My 2021 New Year’s message still feels so relevant, I am inspired to share it with you again as we enter 2022 and continue through this transition period:

This year, we have realised the importance of human connection – although apart more than usual, connection has never felt so strong or so important before.

We have realised the importance of divine connection, and finding an inner strength to navigate these turbulent times.

We have been forced to see in stark daylight the failings of the system we have constructed for ourselves, so full of corruption and control, so far removed from what we all need to thrive.

We have had to find our own truth in the midst of many conflicting narratives; a truth that resonates within our being and guides us in the most difficult circumstances.

We have re-discovered our own sovereignty, our ability to live in closer alignment with our truth, removing our energy from those systems that are no longer serving us.

We have felt fear, and remembered that love is always stronger than fear. While fear resides in our mind, love permeates our being and our Universe.

And so, at the end of the year, there is peace depsite the storm outside. There is hope and trust in a brighter tomorrow.

At winter solstice we celebrate the return of the light; we have felt a darkness this year but the light always returns.

At New Year we celebrate new beginnings. This year, we have been watching the death of old ways and systems; we are shedding old skins and emerging into a new world.

Each of us has the ability to participate in co-creating the New Earth we wish to inhabit, and to support one another to live this into reality.

This year has equipped us with new tools and new resilience; we are ready to continue our journey without fear of the future. While there may still be rocky roads ahead, we know how to navigate these. In the darkest hour, our light shines most brightly.

We are so excited about what 2022 has to offer and look forward to seeing many of you again at Eco Retreats this year.
