Home Grown Medicine Cabinet

If you make the decision to activate your innate self-healing mechanisms, stay away from the medical system, eat healthily and live as naturally as you can, without doubt your health and vitality will improve. Nonetheless, even if you enjoy excellent health (as we do) you might find you need a little extra support every now and then. We avoid the medical system (it is the plague) and pharmaceuticals by choice and this post is about the home grown and natural…

Summer Solstice Ritual

Summer Solstice Ritual

This summer solstice (for us in the northern hemisphere), is an especially powerful time for transformation, as it is followed within hours by an annular eclipse and then the new moon. Here, we will be celebrating Medusa’s Wedding. This is my shorthand reference to the alchemical ritual of bringing the death and regenerative powers of the Divine Feminine, represented by the dark moon, out of the shadows and into the heart of the Divine Masculine, represented by the sun. The…

Guérir les eaux

Guérir les eaux

Traduit par ST de Géobiotantra Et s’il existait de l’eau de guérison ? De l’eau pure sacrée, qui pourrait guérir tous les problèmes de santé. La boiriez-vous ? La gouteriez vous-même ? Étonnamment, pour moi du moins, beaucoup de gens vont tourner la tête. D’autres vont accepter l’offre avec un sourire en coin, seulement avec l’intention de disputer la déclaration. Qu’est-il arrivé au scepticisme ouvert d’esprit ? Qu’est-il arrivé à l’innocence ? je suis sûre que vous avez quelques réponses à ces…

Dirt Cheap Fertilizer: micro-organisms

Dirt Cheap Fertilizer: micro-organisms

JADAM: people who are like nature The year before last a friend introduced us to JADAM: ultra low-cost organic farming from Korea. JADAM means, ‘people who are like nature’ and refers to nature-like people who choose to follow the wisdom of nature. JADAM focuses on the growing cycle and is less all-encompassing than permaculture, which ironically for us turned out to be too prescriptive and not really suited to our life-style. There is a spirit to JADAM, that I found…

I Am COVID-19

I Am COVID-19

“I am the cure, not the disease.” I had decided not to write anything more about the coronavirus, but the thought of pushing King Bilious the Pretender off his plastic throne is irresistible – mmmm, the sweet smell of hubris. I am COVID-19 and also e.coli and tuberculosis and at least a 100 trillion other microbes and fungi, most of which are hosting their own novel viruses – and so are you. You would be dead without them. Is the…

BOIS MORT, MICROBES ET DÉMONS

BOIS MORT, MICROBES ET DÉMONS

With thanks to John Doe, Information Très Vraie for the video and translation. Le bois mort est le fruit d’un paradigme mourant – et là où il y a du bois mort, il y aura toujours des microbes qui sont fondamentaux pour le cycle de la vie. La quarantaine forcée a à peine eu un impact sur notre vie quotidienne, mais hier, alors que nous commencions à déboiser les bois d’arbres morts, je me suis surpris à réfléchir à cette…

Free Cover-up, One Size Fits All

Free Cover-up, One Size Fits All

This is a follow-up to my previous post, Deadwood, Microbes and Demons, and here I’m focusing on how to deal with the stay-at-home-smorgasbord of fears. Fear is the contagion; simply knowing that there is no such thing as a virus is not sufficient to shield you from the fear of other humans, or prevent you from unconsciously transmitting it to everyone else you encounter. Transmute the fear and this transition will be much quicker and easier and the outcome, which…

Deadwood, Microbes and Demons

Deadwood, Microbes and Demons

Deadwood is the fruit of a dying paradigm – and where’s there’s deadwood, there will always be microbes that are fundamental to the cycle of life. The enforced quarantine has barely impacted on our daily lives, but yesterday as we began clearing the woods of dead trees, I found myself reflecting on this most novel situation and my growing sense that we are in the midst of the greatest healing crisis the world has ever known. There is no such…

Yarrow: Chiron’s Arrow

Yarrow: Chiron’s Arrow

Yarrow, Achillea millefolium is another one of my favourite helper plants (along with St John’s Wort, Melissa and Plantain). It grows wild here through spring and the long summer and I harvest the flowers and leaves and dry and store them for tea and wound healing powder, as well as making tinctures and sun oils for use throughout the year. When I picked it, smelled it and crushed it in my fingers for the first time, it felt like a…

Broccoli Medicine

Broccoli Medicine

Growing broccoli Broccoli is one of our garden successes. I sowed seeds of several different types, purple sprouting, green sprouting and the large headed variety – the purple sprouting is the most prolific and easy going by far. It’s been tough love for the garden. The soil got compacted when we cut down the pine trees to make the garden, in the early days of the garden we had two years of summer drought with no irrigation. (See: Six years…
