“In all thine operations, let the Work be guided by nature, according to the slow progression of metals in the bowels of the Earth. And in thine efforts, be guided in all ways by the true and not the fantastic imagination.”
We, my husband of 33 years and the two dogs we had then, moved from London to the wilds of Galicia eight years ago – we could see where our lives were going and hungered for adventure and beauty. We are now a three dog, two cat pack and live off-grid, self-reliant and happy. Most of our practical skills we learned (and are still learning) here ‘on the job’. We live in a beautiful cob house, renovated from a ruin and carved a vegetable garden out of the woods, which now provides most of our vegetables. We’ve also learned a lot about what it is to be a human creature, living intimately with Nature.
There is not a day goes by that I’m not deeply grateful to be living here, especially now, in 2020 and I’d encourage anyone thinking about leaving the city life to do what it takes! We are continuously invigorated by the awe and wonder of Nature and the simple pleasures of our daily lives. Our way of dealing with the challenges of the world today is to learn how to take care of ourselves, as naturally as possible and enjoy doing it. It often feels as though we are going back to basics, and that there is no one that can teach or show us what we need to know. We are very careful about what technology we use, but we live comfortably and guard our freedom fiercely. Mostly, we are falling in love with this land, discovering a new sense of responsibility and stewardship and modelling our reality to find a more satisfying way to live, with imagination and natural pleasure.
I’ve been a lucid dreamer for as long as I can remember and began my initiation, if you can call it that, via a spontaneous NDE in 2005. I’ve had a successful corporate career and worked as a healer, trained in kinesiology and psychology and I now do this work within our community, as and when. I trust the dreaming power of the earth, which is also my own dreaming power, to bring into actuality the experiences and things that make us happy. The world is Supernatural and future of humanity depends on men and women being able to make magic together in mutual appreciation and beauty.
This site covers the more practical aspects of our lives and I dive into into alchemy and the imaginal realms more deeply on The Alchemist Sister.

“There is such a thing as magic, but it has been misunderstood. Most people think of magic as the subverting of natural laws. However, real magic does not subvert anything. Magic is merely the result of directing the creative activity of the Spiritual world into the material plane. Those who know the rules for inviting such Spiritual intervention are called magicians.”
