Lifting the lid on Pandora’s Box

February 28th, 2014 by Tonya

We hold a Wellwishers' Meditation every month for those involved in or interested in a project we're developing to help make ourselves and our community more resilient in the face of climate change, financial volatility, resource depletion, that kind of thing (I love my long sentences, don't I?) This means not just working on the 'outer' to create local sources of food and develop a local response to flooding or environmental change, say, but also acknowledging the 'inner' change that is required within each of us to adapt to a changing world - and help facilitate a shift in consciousness to enable this Read More...

Cultivating resilience in our communities

February 21st, 2014 by Tonya

I spent much of last weekend out 'on the ground' reassuring and mentoring people - and especially the elderly - displaced as a result of the recent (and ongoing) floods in an area about half an hour's drive away from where I live - one of the worst affected areas of the UK, being the place where a number of rivers and waterways meet Read More...

Spring cleaning our food cupboards!

February 21st, 2014 by Tonya

So this blog post symbolises the 'parting of the ways' for me. With the beginning of the countdown to our 21-day cleansing plan, on Monday, all food-related posts (ie, those associated with the programme) will move over to Facebook and be published on Facebook only. So those that signed up to the Little White Feather blog, you will be pleased to know that it will return to being what it was originally 'billed' to be - a blog about conscious evolution and related subjects Read More...

Further to fly

February 20th, 2014 by Tonya

As I fell asleep last night, I was shown a picture of an eagle's outstretched wings, vast and spacious, as it lay on the wind, high above the Earth. Then, relaxing further into its perfectly surrendered flight, it stretched those majestic wings still further... wider and climbed higher into the sky Read More...

Exploring our relationship with food

February 17th, 2014 by Tonya

For those of you who are looking to do the Little White Feather cleanse with us - our 10-day countdown starts next week - this is the perfect time to reflect on your relationship with food (and drink, for that matter)! Is this relationship perfectly balanced  - or are there areas where the dance between you does not flow as well as it could? Is there a time of day, for instance, when you just have to have a cup of tea? Or do you 'need' a cup of strong coffee to get you going in the mornings? And, say, when you look at the truffles in the picture here, for instance, is there an, 'I must have you!' voice that screams inside you, rather than a gentle inner voice prompting,  'maybe later, for pudding?'  This is the kind of thing I'm talking about here Read More...

The 21-day cleanse… is it for me?

February 15th, 2014 by Tonya

As I mentioned earlier this week, the 21-day cleanse consists of gradually taking out of the diet all those foods - and drinks - that may be 'fighting' with the body, ie, pretty much anything that doesn't occur naturally in nature or that may be difficult for your body to digest. The ten days before the diet begins (ie, from the Monday after next - February 24th) we use to psychologically and physically prepare for our new way of eating and drinking Read More...

Why cleanse – and why now?

February 14th, 2014 by Tonya

For me, lapses of energy for no apparent reason, pronounced mood swings, feeling uncomfortable in my body, aches and pains... are all signs that I need to unburden my body-mind of toxins. If you're feeling any of these things on a regular basis, it might be a good idea to cleanse. The detox programme I'm proposing – and which begins on Monday  (though you can of course download the information our Facebook page at a later date and follow it any time you like - the cleanse is going to be on Facebook only this year) is a relatively gentle one Read More...

For your Valentine’s Day

February 13th, 2014 by Tonya

I have met my soul today. Shining in the eyes of another. And my heart is aflame with the beauty of The One. A thousand lamps have been lit, a thousand songs have risen in my heart, a thousand seeds have been planted that will grow and bloom untended. When we are together, our energy reaches out and becomes a doorway, lighting up the area around it, and everyone that walks through looks up to stare, not knowing why, yet changed in the presence of its transforming fire Read More...
