“If you travel far enough, one day you will recognize yourself
coming down the road to meet you.

And you will say – YES.”

Marion Woodman

that resides within all of us.

She reminds us of our cyclical nature, and holds the promise of renewal and transformation. I invite you to join me and find guidance in the gentle, reflective light of the moon.
