Life is calling us up individually and collectively in a big way. We are being asked to ‘listen’ better with all of our senses: to pay better attention – deeper, more broadly and with more discernment – to what was and what is and what might be – inside and out and beyond. What’s being summoned is the kind of listening that taps into all levels of consciousness and opens the field of awareness – listening that shows us what’s really going on and what’s needed, so we can attend to this skilfully and in doing so, enable more of life to flow through us for good effect. We are being asked to be a vessel that empowers life.
Meditation doesn’t change what’s happening in life, but an established practice can support you in building the capacity to hold and be with things as they happen.
The bridge between sacred practice and everyday living goes both ways. In the powerful portal of The Sanctum, we are invited to stand on, and perhaps experience how we might better navigate that bridge-building awareness of our inner worlds, so that we can cultivate capacity to meet the outer world and all that shows up there with more presence, grace and ease.

One day, Laura met The Muse – an energetic portal into a beautiful rich seam of age-old wisdom that is deeply relevant to our lives today. Messages began to come forth through her and a collection of stories gathered, wanting to be shared – As the Birds Land was born.
Sadhana is a Sanskrit term, meaning ‘regular spiritual practice’. In modern terms, this can of course mean many things – meditation, prayer, breath work, movement etc, as long as these practices are undertaken with an intention to connect more deeply to our inner selves, and the world around us. What is key to Sadhana, is that whatever practice is chosen, it is done regularly (daily) and rhythmically.
This season, as we journey into the dark half of the year, we’ll meet again for regular sacred ceremony in The Sanctum. In each circle, held weekly, we’ll share tea ritual, listen to poetry and guided wisdom, and connect in silent meditation and reflective space.
