Our work


April Moon ended on the weekend. It was a lovely two weeks and, even though it passed in the blink of an eye, a lot happened.

There was, as always, a core group of women who posted heartfelt, genuine responses every day and also made a point of visiting each other's posts and leaving insightful, encouraging comments. These superlative human beings really made April Moon.

But there was also a large number of kindred spirits who just followed along in their own way. Some worked through each prompt in their journal. And others just read the prompts and stayed open to the answers that revealed themselves through the course of the day. The presence of these souls was also palpable and I am grateful for them too.

My final wish for everyone who received our April Moon offerings is that they learn to extend the loving kindness they showed to each other throughout the journey to themselves.

This seems to be our work in this lifetime.

It's not for the fainthearted, a life of enquiry. But it surely helps to know that we are not wrestling with our demons on our own.

P.S. Alana and I are going to post our responses to the April Moon prompts interview-style on each other's blogs (e.g. I'll post Alana's answers here and she'll post mine on her blog) later this week. Watch this space!

P.P.S. Did you know there is a band called April Moon? They are a Canadian duo living in the UK. They reached out to me on twitter and they are simply fabulous

  2. I was away on retreat for the bulk of the April Moon, but that just means I'll be working through these fabulous prompts on my own timeline. I so enjoyed following the posted entries, and look forward to Alana and your answers. And what a fun way to do it!
