A Walk in the Woods


A walk in the woods

Awakening the senses

Stirring the imagination….


Carved onto a branch where wise owl patiently sits, are the words –


‘Thinking up is a cosmic skill, up up direct your mind

Your light body will expand, freedom too you find

Forward and up thinking, a direction just to be

Much easier to fly in a body that is free’


Owl is poised ready to fly silently into the night at a moments notice

He has choice

He is the observer and the observed

Master of inner and outer worlds


The branch is old but it is sprouting new leaves

The wisdom is ancient and timeless…


On a leaf a mouse is meditating … up up up to the big up …the cosmic up … up there!

He feels fantastic



A little mouse balancing on a big delicate shimmering leaf

Contemplating the vastness of it all



It might all seem a bit batty but who cares

Lets fly

Crazy bat

Be yourself

Accept yourself and all your battiness

Fly in the day

Fly in the night

Non conformity with all its bat whirls and twirls and swirls suits you

Be you


The spider weaves his web and connects us all

How lucky we are to have creative spider and his world wide web…


Another mouse eases on a branch in semi supine lighting his body with direction

Lightening his load

Whilst badger efforts his way over the branch…


What are you doing Mr Badger?


Could you find another way?


Two mice meditate, watched by a hedgehog

Today Miss Hedgehog hasn’t quite learned to let go

She is feeling a bit prickly

But definitely curious that there IS another way


Learning from the example of the calm, balanced, meditating mice

She contemplates her defences

Hmmm, interesting!


Golden leaves fall around the meditating mice, they see the abundance of it all

A pink moon is held within a dandelion clock


The bracken fronds remind us that all movement and growth spirals…spiralling dancing relationships


Mr Fox has been out running rings and now, like all dogs, knows how to look after himself – master of rest after activity and a master of active rest…

A comfortable, warm place for an afternoon snooze

Siesta time, dreaming time, to wake inspired ready to play…

Clever fox!
