“I let it go. It’s like swimming against the current. It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are, you just have to let go, and the river brings you home.”
~ Joanne Harris
Satya writes: A new home.
Home is important. Home is where we venture out from, where we return to, where we feel safe. Home is refuge. Home is where we can be ourselves.
Home isn’t just this room I’m sitting in, with its woodburner and art and books and plants. It isn’t just the people I love – Kaspa, three cats, friends, family. Home is something bigger than that. When I’m tuned in properly, I feel at home in the Universe. I feel held by something ineffable and golden. I feel that everything is going to be alright.
A warm welcome to our new home for Writing Our Way Home. We hope that it will help new visitors to get to know us more quickly, and for old and loved visitors to see what we offer more easily.
We hope that you can find a place to rest here – that it might provide you with a quiet moment of reflection in a busy day, or an encouragement to turn outwards to your world and engage with it more intensely, one small stone at a time.
Kaspa & I love what we do. We’ve been lucky enough to run this company for more than two years now, through three January Mindful Writing Challenges, many 1:1 sessions with wonderful people, many e-courses with small groups of fellow travellers.
This year we are hoping to write some more of our new 31 Days offerings, like our Gratitude & Mindful Writing courses, which you can start whenever you like. They are designed to accompany you through a month of self-directed exploration with daily inspirational emails, an essay and exercises.
We’re looking forward to going out into the world with small stones – to France, to Oxfordshire, to just-down-the-road.
We’re looking forwards to doing more of what we love – supporting people in their own journeys, taking the message of mindful writing to the world, helping people to wake up. Doing our own work on ourselves, uncovering new layers of our bombu (foolish) nature, and being nourished by the learning. Finding a balance of work and play. Being creative. Getting things wrong. Getting things right.
What will you do this year? Where will you make yourself at home? Where will you venture out to?
Keep in touch. Let us know in the comments or by email (Satya or Kaspa) what you think of the new site and of Writing Our Way Home. Visit us at Facebook and on Twitter & sign up to our newsletter on the right. And do help yourself to a cup of tea.
