A Hundred Thousand Welcomes

A Blog About Tree Wisdom, Plant Medicine, Forest Bathing, Wellbeing, Culture and More Besides.


If you are new to my website welcome. This is my blog about many things, but above all it's an exploration into what it means to see the lie of the land. Bear Dreaming, the Green Man, Trees, Rocks, Folktales, Awareness, Human relationships with the earth, Wisdom traditions/musings. Rocks and bones, ancient stories retold that unfold in news ways. The past reaching into the future calling us back to ourselves to be present, here, now. Connect with our Native Soul and Wild Land Dreaming.



The Ancient Ancestral Fire

The call to feel the heart of the fire and smell the smoke. The call to hear silence and the sounds that drop in to it that play a melody to the heart. The call of the land to heed the path to home. To sit at home within oneself and within the landscape. It is a story of me, myself and I. It is a story of them, you and us. The story of journeys taken, dreams woven and treasure found. It is a collection of musings, old lore, discovery and endless curiosity.


I hope that you like it. I hope that you will join me.


It is a mix of tree wisdom, plant medicine, archeology, history, anthropology, folklore, ecology, poetry, art, spirit, dreams, beauty, and more.


A hunt for the wild and a documentary of being the wild. A journey of time travel, weaving stories together.


I hold out my hand, will you come? Will you come see what I’ve found?


Shall we walk across that ridge and see what lies there? Maybe it’s a village, they’ve been expecting us. Maybe a forest so old, that it would take 10 men to stand around just one tree. Maybe it will be a rolling grassy plain. Or, maybe, it will be the sea where our toes can sink into golden sand. Shall we go then? You and I? We will never know if we don’t go.


Here, take my hand.


In short a look at the past and the here and now, and what it means to live in the modern world. An attempt then to Live With Art And Soul and Become The Blessing The World Needs.


I run workshops and retreats. I also have a small shop here, do take a look. I pay a tithe on everything I do to plant and protect trees. It is my way of honouring the wisdom and life gifted to me by Mother Earth.


Friends have been endlessly telling me to share more of my writings, this then is the start of posting more in depth articles. It is Seed Fall, the start of the Celtic New Year. I hope you will enjoy your journey with me.


Many Blessings to you
