Libra Moon | Lera Mimizu

This particular Full Moon is in Libra and what it is about resonates with me so much. The realisations I have been going through, the insights I keep having, the lessons I am learning. All in the last week. This Full Moon is about relationships. “It is only when we see the other for who […]

Adult Education

At present we educate people only up to the point where they can earn a living and marry; then education ceases altogether, as though a complete mental outfit has been acquired. The solution of all the remaining complicated problems of life is left to the discretion, and ignorance, of the individual. Innumerable ill-advised and unhappy […]

Sisters of the Wild Gathering | Lera Mimizu

Last weekend I went again to the Sisters of the Wild Gathering @sistersofthewild in Wales. It was my fourth time and it was powerful – like it usually is. Each time is SO unique. Like a Tea Ceremony it works on so many layers, many of which are ineffable yet can be felt strongly. This […]

To The Individual Few

Small and hidden is the door that leads inward, and the entrance is barred by countless prejudices, mistaken assumptions, and fears. Always one wishes to hear of grand political and economic schemes, the very things that have landed every nation in a morass.

In the first case consciousness nowhere intervenes; the end remains as dark as the beginning. In the second case so much darkness comes to light that the personality is permeated with light, and consciousness […]

To Receive

My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.   Nikola Tesla  

Pisces Moon | Lera Mimizu

This moon is in Pisces – my sign – so I feel really close affinity to it. Cannot wait to sit with all the sisters in a circle and drink tea in silence. There are so many women gatherings are happening in london, each special in their own right. For me there is beauty and […]

The Island

The radiant promise it offered during the day was replaced in my heart by all the treachery it delivered at night…I preferred to set off and perish in search of my own kind than to live a lonely half-life of physical comfort and spiritual death on this murderous island.   Life of Pi
