It’s been a while. I’ve been cheating on the blog with the book.
Here’s a little something for you whilst I carry on ramping up that word count. A meditation for the difficult stuff, for the stuck stuff, for the angry and hurting and resistant stuff, for the staring into the abyss of the unknown and wondering how you’ll make it out alive stuff… Continue reading →
I’m about to embark on launching the next chapter of my Work into the world – what the thoughts in my recent “sex magic” post evolved into.
Work entitled Making Love with God.
