The three R's ...... Render , Roofs and Retreats .

So here we are after another week, time just seems to fly by , not without enormous amounts of work though.
This last weekend's retreat which incorporated  earth day and sing to the trees , was a truly wonderful experience , along with an 8 hour gong puja through the night on Saturday .All starting off with Ceredwin 80th birthday on Friday , so blessed that she found it in her heart to join our final circle .

The roof structure was finished and wow how fabulous to look down on the upper oak spokes from our top floor window .
The Lime render has arrived ready for the walls . 

Lots to get on with especially as we have another retreat this weekend . We are blessed that our intentions are coming to fruition, though at times it can seem a little hectic , important to be in balance .      

 And so the beach first thing with the dogs is vital . 
Not long and they will not be allowed on Penbryn until the autumn , so let's truly make hay along with roundhouses , retreats , and joy filled days

    ....... the sun is currently shining ....

Gwenhwyfar Garden: Sound Peace Chamber in the Sunshine

Gwenhwyfar Garden: Sound Peace Chamber in the Sunshine: Just had to write a short blog this early evening showing the sun shining & casting shadows of the oak posts through the east doorway . ...

Rubbish , Rocks and Willows.

So today saw us with the beach to ourselves ....such a joy when that happens . The stream had carved huge passageways through the sand , the dogs however were a little unsure which way to cross over .

Along the far end we went picking up some plastic and other debris as we walked . No time for rocks and stones today , rubbish was at the forefront of my mind . 

The dogs found two tennis balls which they happily brought home , along with my small rubbish pile and some rocks Ali has been collecting for the roundhouse fire pit .

The scarlet willow arrived yesterday a gift for our dear friend Ceredwin who will be 80 on Friday and joining the last part of the women of our times retreat . 

This Saturday being Earth day and sing to the trees , Ceredwin will have scarlet willow to plant , the other women's trees have been holding space outside the perimeter of the roundhouse since we blessed the site back in February. 

We will all plant our trees and we will then all be able to sing and bless them as their roots embrace the earth .We shall have a wonderful weekend that's for sure . Weather looking good for our fire ceremony later that day,  and then an all night gong puja . Nice job we have here .........

As if all of this were not enough we have another seeker arriving tomorrow , we hope she will find what she has been missing as she allows Gorslwyd Farm and Gwenhwyfar Garden to  sow their seeds of hope and joy that they are only to happy to do .
Blessed be .

Sound Peace Chamber in the Sunshine

Just had to write a short blog this early evening showing the sun shining & casting shadows of the oak posts through the east doorway . Feeling so incredibly blessed . We have had many projects since we arrived at the farm , this one has captured my creative passion like no other . It feels like it lives in me and I in it .

I imagine myself holding circles with amazing people who will come with their own unique energy and transform all that needs to be transformed within us whilst we sit in a modern day Celtic roundhouse asking our ancestors and the ancestors of this land to show us and guide back to wholeness . Blessed doesn't somehow seem a big enough word . The feeling behind it is just so much bigger .
To think when the idea first came and where we are today , help from other realms for sure .

Beautiful beach time

Just back from a lovely trip to the beach . Will not be able to soon , the dogs are not allowed on our favourite beach from May till the end of September , so truly making the most of it and today's weather and the expanse of beach with nobody else around , joyful.

We are back now to get on with some chores outside , roundhouse path way to help with , scalpings on the steps up to the sunroom at the back of Sunflower and painting the newly rendered wall . Always things to do and happy when we can be outside .
We manage our time here a lot  around what the weather brings , it's so organic that way . Naturally there are certain things like meal times etc that are more fixed , but the daily chores of general maintenance etc well they just seem to happen , it's like we work with all the elements and all gets done as it should . So blessed we can have this as a way of life , very different to a lot of peoples life style , and that makes us ever grateful we chose to take on something that has at times seemed a huge commitment . That's when we absolutely have to remember all the help we have from all dimensions , then we get back to a gentle way of being .

Spring is in the air

So after some extremes of weather we seem to be having more spring like temperatures and thankfully no rain . 

We headed to the beach early this morning with the dogs , we have been so busy getting things ready for all the guests arriving today , our routine has been somewhat disturbed. So we made sure whilst no one else was here Ali and I along with , Lillie , Dylan , Kipper, and Martha got to Penbryn by 7.15 this morning.

We collected some stones for our latest two rockeries , asking them politely if they were happy to come live at Gorslwyd , and they all agreed . Back home for a morning meditation , breakfast and off to work with the finishing touches of , plants , rocks and the recycled oak bark , what amazing results.

The guests will hopefully love what we have created .
The roundhouse is just becoming such a strong presence . I sat in the circle of it and already it speaks.

We have even had some new bright additions to Hedgerow that seem to bring more of the outside in .

I have already been asked by some guests for treatments , and a sound bath this weekend , how wonderful that our intentions for our little piece of heaven are coming true , the trees are even creating little hearts for us

West Wales Sound Healing Centre at Gorslwyd Farm home to Gwenhwyfar Garden and all the lovely healing and nourishing vibes that prevail here . May all our guests this weekend leave with some of its magic to remember it by .

Round Houses and Sand Circles

What a day ! Spring is so in the air after the snows of the weekend...

And what is this beautiful building beginning to appear here ?

Oh so magical to see it forming so amazingly with such love and tenderness even handling solid heavy wooden oak posts with gentle teasing to fit in place . The door opening in place and facing east is just incredible , when you think it was just an idea only two months ago ........
The magic of manifesting when we open our ears and hearts to the divine and say yes to the call. Brave we were considering at that time we very little funds for it . Yet the funds have arrived and with the help of our sponsored posts , May seems realistic for its finish. Even if the details inside need some finer work after .
Can hardly wait to hold our first ceremony .
As if this was not enough for one day we headed to Mwnt for the latest of Marc Treanors sand circles for the Spring Equinox and with the sun warming the earth we sat and looked down on the beach and his creation as the drone flew above taking pictures of what had come into being .

We really do live in such a wonderful part of this world , so much creativity and community . Blessed indeed .

The three R's ...... Render , Roofs and Retreats .

So here we are after another week, time just seems to fly by , not without enormous amounts of work though. This last weekend's retreat...
