Winter solstice meanderings - Did you know that the jay plants acorns to feed future generations of jays?

A solstice conversation with Parcifal Solomon about reality, consciousness and the necessity of walking

When I first met Parcifal, we were in his grandma's garden, studying each other from afar, silently.  He had/ has the most arresting blue eyes and was much younger than me.  Our fathers are cousins.  We didn't meet again for many decades and when we did we clicked and talked but it has really been during lockdown that our relationship has started to bind our roots and allow something new to grow.

He reads loads and thinks more and is not scared to step off the beaten track to explore what is below, above and around what we think we know.

Join us in our conversation about jays, winter, consciousness and why it matters to feel out feet against the earth.

On the solstice, take time to go within, to drop into the mystery and to trust that the light will rise again.

Much love.

I am a well-being coach who helps people find their 'thing'; the thing that lights you up and gives you joy and energy. Listen to my podcast; 'What's your thing?' to get inspiration.

I support people to create a less stressed life, to boost their well-being, to ask for what they want and to look after their own needs so that they can hear their heart's call and live a more empowered and meaningful life.

I draw on experience and training in bereavement, domestic abuse, mindfulness, meditation, yoga, Transactional Analysis and other therapeutic approaches.

I have 2 sons who I love loads (and who sometimes drive me crazy). I'm a Barefoot Trained coach and I got a distinction for my post-grad cert in 2011.

I have a PhD which led me to look at Emotional Intelligence in schools and I have a number of academic and professional qualifications in various types of therapy.

I have practiced meditation since I went to India over 30 years ago and I'm a yoga teacher. I have written a couple of books, I teach psychology and work with a large variety of coaching clients.
