Look Back on 2017

on December 26, 2017

Music of 2017

Music wasn’t very important to me again this year, I didn’t go to any gigs and I only really listened to Spotify. I did sometimes listen to new albums this way but I guess the only one that was of note for me was Kasabian’s new album “For Crying Out Loud”, the first single is rather catchy:

Books

I’ve hardly read anything this year 😦 I set myself the challenge of reading 47 books this year and I’ve only managed 16…I’ve not been given many books or bought many..and I’m starting to run the library dry now…

The best ones I read were Love Your Lady Landscape by Lisa Lister, Goddess Wisdom (which I won my copy of) by Taniska, and very weird but intriguing fiction The Vegetarian by Han Kang. I got Witch by Lisa Lister for Winter Solstice which I have just started but I’m very excited to read it and hopefully it’s as good as everyone says.

Films and TV

I saw one film at the cinema as I took my mum to see the new live version of Beauty and the Beast for Mother’s Day and it was very good.

Other things I enjoyed were the new Russell Howard series, and the series based on Phillip K Dick Stories “Electric Dreams”

Moments/Things I did in 2017

Did a lot more Moon Mother work, I actually had a few paying clients this year for both healings and blessings!

I ended my Southend based women’s circle and started a Red Tent in Hackney Wick. It’s been a bit slow to start but had a better turn out in December so hoping it will grow properly in 2018!

I took part as a student in Miguel and Gareth’s Shamanic Foundation Course, which took quite a large part of the year (lessons every 2 weeks), it was challenging and empowering. In September I started on the Shamanic medicine wheel proper, so I am now a mesa carrier and am currently on the South.

arranged a surprise fire ceremony for Miguel’s birthday

I started giving Munay Ki and I have taken 3 people so far all the way through the rites. Hopefully I will train them to give it early next year

I went to a women’s retreat weekend in London which was very powerful.

We lost our other cat Mitzi in the summer 😦

For my birthday I went to Belfairs woods for a butterfly walk which was really lovely

I worked at two retreat weekends which were also very powerful healing experiences for myself

I started going to a few other circles, I went to a Goddess circle and started going to Red Tent Rayleigh towards the end of the year.

For our anniversary we went to see the Pink Floyd exhibition at the VMA.

Went to a MBS and a Yoga/Vegan fair in Southend

won lots of competitions- I won the Goddess Wisdom book, a Womb Skype Ceremony, popcorn and a Moon Mama t shirt!

it was in lots of ways, a difficult year, there were a lot of struggles but also a lot of empowerment. Hopefully next year the changes that need to happen will manifest and it will be a happier year! My Plans and other resolutions of the year to come soon!
