Been laid low with a bug which has prevented me from beginning the year as I usually do – on retreat and reviewing the past year, reflecting on what is to come. But obviously my body/spirit had a different agenda. As I move into my 13 year (Death/Rebirth) I am already taking on the appearance of the snake shedding its skin, covered in the worst excema I’ve ever had. I am being forced to listen, to have a conversation with my body. And it is telling me ‘Start Close In – Take the step you don’t want to take’ (David Whyte) Listen. Slow down.
