Three owls call from the trees around the house and suddenly a poem writes itself...


Owls on the wing, riding the night

Calling me out to witness their flight.

Spirit of Darkness hiding the light,

Clouds on a moon veiled from my sight,


Sound carried far on a clear night air,

Senses alert to what may be there.

Rustling of grass, whispering leaves.

What scurries there in the old house's eaves?


Owl cries a greeting, my spirit responds,

Wings swoop to embrace me, I rise to Owl's song.

Unfolding my wings, I join in the flight,

As the moon shows her face I soar up to its light.


Spirit of Darkness, Spirit of Night,

Show me the beauty that day hides from sight.

The sprinkle of starlight, the moon's eerie glow,

The sharpness of lightning, shadows on show.

Shapes with no substance, shifting like sand

Changing their contours at Night's command.


Soft cloak of Darkness, velvet of Night,

Wrap mystery around us with absence of light.

Owl cries farewell as it takes to the sky

And stillness descends with the fade of its cry,

Night's mantle of mystery is once more restored,

And wisdom embraced from its dark realms explored.

WOW! (Women of the World) Meeting

Saturday 9 June 2018, 2pm to 4pm

Dogusbelen, Koycegiz

This year's meetings will return to a spiritual focus, whatever the topic, and we already have some wonderful volunteers to lead some of the meetings with ever more interesting topics, so keep posted on future meetings!

The first meeting topic will be
Saying Goodbye" and stems from discussions at the recent Emotional Health Workshop.
We will be looking at the role of ceremony and ritual in saying goodbye, letting go, moving on...... And this can apply to relationships, deaths, losses, life trauma, life changes, moving home - and also to saying goodbye to situations, circumstances, habits and patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us.


Often times, talking and talking and talking about something will not actually help us to release it. But when we create a ritual to release the energetic ties to a person, place or situation; when we cleanse the old, we create sacred space to invite in the new.


Rituals transform one state of being into another. Rituals help to ease the way and heal the pain of saying goodbye and letting go while at the same time connecting us with something much greater than our earthly concerns.


Ritual and ceremony can be as simple or as complicated as you like. Creating a focus for the intention we hold always strengthens its power, and we can share experiences of practices, ceremony, ritual, etc. that has helped us individually to say goodbye in some way.

WOW! meetings are for women only and require no advanced booking. Just turn up and join in!
No charge for attending, no limit on numbers – the more the merrier. Bring nothing but an open mind and a seeker's curiosity.


If you would like to keep informed of meetings, look for the Facebook group “We are WOW!” and join up.
