A Quest into the Dark Side

July 21, 2016

Back in the Spring I went on a vision quest, and at the same time was invited to submit an article to GreenSpirit Magazine.

Here it is published. Its my first article ever, and I loved writing it. I took myself out onto the moors for an afternoon and this is what came through.

Also, a few words about GreenSpirit. I have been a member of this charity for a number of years now and they have been a huge part of my spiritual journey. I would not be where I am now had it not been for finding them. They are the first organisation I came across that combined earth care with spirituality. Here is their website if you are drawn to finding out more.

  2. A wonderful article Nicola.
    Having met you and Jason, taking part in a couple of your drumming workshops and making my own drum (which gives me a feeling of calm and joy when I’ve used it), You are making me think and ponder on where I am in life.
