Where are my edges, where does my sense of self stop and other begin? What feel like the non-negotiable boundaries required in order for me to feel safe and how does modern life or the demands of my work encroach on that?

Phases of the Moon

We can lose touch with the thread of “who we meant to be” as the cloth of life becomes ever more wooly with the friction of circumstance and it can be so useful to reconnect with that most pristine of golden fibres; the one that led us to want to be here at this place and time in our collective evolutionary story, contributing our all-important piece to the tapestry. Working with phases of the moon has been such a powerful mechanism for carrying out such an overview; so much so that I want to share what I learned from an extraordinary book on this topic.
