In a Challenging World, We all need Sanctuary
Welcome to a space of Calm
A place for you to pause, for self-connection through eco-writing, meditation, yoga & earth-art.
In our complex times we all need shelter. There's a pressing need of sanctuary for the creatures, the plant species, and for ourselves.
The Little Sanctuary is both an online hub of Eco-poetics, designed to support your well-being and creativity...
...and a real world half-acre of re-wilded woodland, orchard and garden in Ennistymon, County Clare.
"And up from the liquid surface rose an otter, an otter diving to somersault, to divide in two and become a mated pair. Black as eels but halo-bright they circled, swimming me into their carnival, into a wider world. So that I want to say to you, do not fear your anguish, despair births miracles; hope is only waiting for release. Pay attention, the signs gifted are subtle: small beads for the necklace of faith we must thread for ourselves."
Grace Wells, from 'Otter', published in 'Fur', Dedalus Press.
