Wonderful Women

What an awe-inspiring weekend , the first of the three 'women of our time retreats'  . Oh my , what depth they went to and discovered parts of themselves long forgotten . I really do feel we are following a path that was laid for us somewhere and sometime long ago .



As if to make sure we understood this sacred work two mornings in a row one of our doves sat on the window above our circle while each woman told her story of loves lost,  and love betrayed .
This morning we had two brave brothers join for a short while and form part of the ceremony and ritual on the site of the round house . We placed our trees together on the site , to be planted next month when we gather again .


Fred , designer and main builder of the house and Steve who held the ceremony and will be involved at stages during the build made it such a special time .





When we later gathered again to close our women's circle the feeling of gratitude and belonging was so tangible .



We have decided to offer the chance for friends and past retreatants to sponsor one of the outer round poles 16 in total which form the basis of the round stucture . These Welsh oak poles have been grown not far from us and each will naturally be a significant part of the build . We are asking for £100 per pole which will cover the cost of the pole and it's preparing and fixing in place . For that we will carve your name or a symbol of your choice on it , that you will forever be part of this new roundhouse in West Wales which has long held a tradition of such houses for healing .

All you need to do if this is something you would like to be part of is contact us and pay via this paypal address gwenhwyfargarden@aol.com . We will also invite all sponsors to the opening ceremony when the building is complete .

World Sound Healing Day here

So today is Valentine's Day and also World Sound Healing Day . We have a small event at midday planned for the global 'AH ' to ring out here and a short sound bath and lunch to follow . the Welsh weather may deter the even the hardiest from venturing out though. High winds and lashing rain it won't prevent us from holding all past participants and recent gong bath friends in our circle . We had another amazing all night gong puja at the weekend that was transformational as always .


Yesterday saw the arrival of my beautiful beloved mother shawl which will not only wrap around me it will help hold the space during the women's retreat this weekend .







I learned also that I have been accepted on a week long gathering in Brazil to witness the way the spiritist work with patients in some of the clinics over there . 
This is something that has been on my radar for a while now and just happened to drop in my line of sight at a time when a relative has recently moved to Brazil . The divines timing is so incredible , don't really know why I trouble myself questioning it !
The trip will be of great benefit for the work we do here and hopefully we will find time to visit John of God whilst there and some of the Psychic surgeons . Then time for some relaxation to absorb what we are shown .
We are so truly blessed to have been given this place to cherish and care for , we really are just custodians of anything in this realm and to have been chosen to care for such a wonderful piece of heaven still leaves me in awe .

Days and weeks

How quick have the days and weeks flown since the last blog . I have just been so busy with the day to day events that occur here .
The biggest retreat we have hosted ourselves was the last weekend of January ,followed by the amazing full moon gong bath with the lovely new sound creation earth gong. 


These have given me the opportunity to meet so many new people and connect with them. They are all weaving in our lives in the most extraordinary ways .




The next retreat 'Women of our Time' a triple weekend event is now full as is the women's soul quest with Judith Tripp in May . 


Things are really moulding into such solid foundations for the healing intention we set here back in 2012 after our first visit in November 2011, when the land here touched me so deeply I cried .
It seems to be that this land is a container for tears , both sad and joyful , sacred are they all .
Certainly of late , many have been shed here , I can but witness and weep at the depth of my soul to honour such courageous beauty from the people who allow me to share with them these magical healing moments, where grace seems to descend in a silence not even broken by the sound of the tears .


Our latest seeker has stayed over four weeks now and will leave on Monday after the all night gong Puja on Saturday .
As the snow fell yesterday another kind of silence descended , though today it has nearly cleared now leaving the bulbs upright and proud ,happy to have their feet in this land.
I do feel so very blessed to have been drawn to this magical place . It has such wonderful healing properties .

Dowsing and drawings

Has a week really passed since the last blog ???

Things have been happening here , changes all around .
After the dowsing we have the drawing or sketch of the visioned sound peace chamber . We are now having the full plans drawn .Fred has been back again and things are moving along . We have decided to go into the bank more and having had another chance to dowse all seems in alignment .
We are so happy with the design and to offer our ideas for suggested materials , the Willow and Hazel  are to be included as they are mine and Ali's Celtic trees . Naturally we will change things if required, though currently all is looking possible and probable. We have had the confirmation from building control today , always good when these are confirmed . As if to say yes to it all the daffodils and primroses are starting to open around the site of this new building gracing it with their beauty .


Our recent trip to New Zealand and the  Hobbiton film set ,is coming here to Wales. Well sort of !
Oh my , now just to create the required funding ............ It's all on its way that we feel sure .

The Round House

Well yesterday Fred came to talk about our new project . So much has happened in such a short while . I was left feeling so inspired . I doused to check the place  and alignments . Realised it would be wonderful to be able to have the canvas labyrinth held within the space at certain times .


Where the door would be , how many windows , all these things were shown to me as though the building was already finished .
The most important thing was the earth floor , it has to be Earth that we can stand on our mother barefoot and feel rooted and safe .Held by the trees around the side of the bank , within earshot of the stream , and just by the sacred grove .
Ideas about trying to use some of our alpaca fibre for insulation within the walls , it feels like the creation of something very special indeed . 



Lovely Venus who passed last year will be within the walls whilst the rest of the herd within hearing distance , their unique hum such a comforting vibe .

Nearly completed ......

So today has been extremely full so far . Our seeker is enjoying her stay , and the lessons that her time in reflection are bringing , though painful  at times ,  seem oh so rewarding . We just enjoy watching the unfolding , renewing our beliefs in why we do what we do here . So much so that just as the last two projects come to fruition , the next visions already present themselves and the people who we needed to help them come about have also as if by magic revealed themselves too.


So some pictures of the very nearly completed room at the back of Sunflower ready just in time for our recovery retreat at the end of the month .


The new visions ......... well a Celtic round house the main one , with some ideas for  a re-jig of our smallest cottage that would be set aside for seekers , and a lovely big porch on our wheelchair friendly three bedroom cottage . Sounds a lot !  Oh not for the feint hearted , dreaming big has paid me so many dividends in so many ways , so why not make these visions manifest . Timing well that's the key for me not to place a time on , just believe ,it will be so.

Our latest arrival

Our latest seeker has arrived , the first of this new year . Though we have known her a good few years now , she has come fully surrendered ready to unfold the new findings within her , I always love this , the sacred touching of the soul , bursting forth with such beauty .
Already the magic has begun , and her joy,  whilst through some tears is becoming evident . I love tears they are such beautiful blessings they flow freely when we allow them and cleanse and soothe like a watery balm .
The new picture hung on the wall in my healing room keeping watch whilst this unfolding occurred . The art work Ali's , the framing of it , a gift from another dear friend .



Oh my , I wouldn't change my world today , what I do though is try and open more freely to all that is given to me on a daily basis even the more challenging parts of the day . That today was Marthas disappearance on our walk .




 A worry if she wanders off where there are pregnant ewes . Not the case though just a scent in the woods she seemed unable to resist , also the loss of our male goose Bert less than a fortnight after we lost his wife , not sure if it's a fox 🦊 or a dog , upsetting none the less , we will have to pen them at night if we choose to have more .


Wonderful Women

What an awe-inspiring weekend , the first of the three 'women of our time retreats'  . Oh my , what depth they went to and discover...
