The Blackbird and her lessons
Merle means Blackbird, the animal medicine of the wise and mystical guide who leads to transformation through a higher path of knowing. Merle draws on her ancestral knowledge to navigate a deeper connection to self. We meet her through meditation, mindfulness, writing, poetry and cooking.
Engage with age, embracing the Third Third
This exciting chapter of life is about recognising our gifts, our wisdom, our experience. This is the harvest phase, the time to take the hard knocks, the lessons and teachings and knead them into new experience that is wise and nourishing to our world. This is the time to look forwards not backwards, to lean into the potential of the future and to appreciate how rich this season of life can be. Merle is writing a memoire to her future. She invites you to join her in this journey rocking into the Third Third.
Listenbear is a hand embroidered bear, made in South Africa. He is the hero of his story. In the book “Listenbear learns the Trees’ Secret”
he is told by the old growth trees:
“Bad things happen, they just do…But you are still you…And, No-one can ever take your smile away from you.”
He is taught a meditation technique that is easy and fun: “Close your eyes and smile”
