I am currently living the life of an American transplant in Glastonbury,
England, with my partner Emmanuel and my beautiful 3 year old Chantal.
My roots and 'home away from home' are in Portland, Oregon in an idealic
American setting and suburb.
Although the UK has been my base for 5 years and the experiences from
living on this sacred landscape have been about inner Underworld/ birth/
raw powers and subtle forces; whereas, in LA I was very 'out' -- a self-initiated
Priestess and writer, embodying the strange ability to walk between many
diverse worlds. After a total crescendo of experience, I sent myself on
sabbatical to the mythical isle of Avalon to finish a book dealing with my
'work' about the western archetypical memes of the banished faerie queen
and the shunned scarlet woman... entitled The Scarlet Threadno less!
Now that Flemming has moved to France, we are excited to finding new, simpler and more sophistocated ways of working together -- making things happen with ease and organic initiative. We hope to match our Cr8-ive OrgSpace modules to what is needed and wanted in this vastly-changing landscape.
In projects, I am a key communicating, catalystic and gluing agent. Recently
we're finding a new level of 'magic happening' just like our days as Synchronicity Networks in LA... we believed
that if you create the right alchemical ingredients of people, ideas and rescources...
magic indeed does happen. That 'X Factor' talked about in the
'just do it' culture -- though we're talking, with ethos and integrity. Transformation
from the inside out. The true livingness of one's truth, dream or quest.
Finding the right combination of wisdom, experience, attitude and beauty...
and finding the perfect magical combinations for all needs.
Today, marketing shouldn't be about selling; it's about attracting
and organising an idea, that is needed wanted and valued for what it is.
Not what it pretends to be. I like to 'story-board' and create a living template
for something that is alive and refreshing. What'sreal.
As Flemming said: 'I am interested also in 'pursuing an assortment of interests
related to how we might all share a world that is more open and free and
alive than the present one.... inquiring into the principles needed as a
basis for a more self-organizing and synergetic society. In that sense I'm
a futurist and a visionary, or more modestly, I'm somebody who is looking
for answers to some big questions, and who writes a lot about the search.'
How do we create forums where everyone's contribution is felt, calculated
and assimulated? How can new models of social structures and more radical
approaches get picked up where paper pushing, product pushing and apathy have
killed the vision? I believe I know. I don't know until I help you look at
it -- but somehow I feel, we intrinsicly do know... and I 'hold space'
for such solutions.
We are living in perilous times, but also there are indicators all around
us that in fact, a hook-up to the authentic is transpiring. Through
the blood and tears and sweat and bones... of us all. I firmly believe
that an open and vulnerable heart is called for. Courage and true heroism
is the antithesis of anti-terrorist propaganda and scare tactics.
We must re-member, call forth, and return to an ancient-future 'reality'
beyond the matrix of fear and hysteria. When we are centred in love, beauty
and all that is true, wise and beyond all our pettiness... something indeed
is happening that we are a part of. It is alive! And this is our hope. This
energy can actually change -- well, everything.
"The Beautiful stirs passion and urgency in us and calls us forth from aloneness into the warmth and wonder of some eternal embrace. It unites us again with the neglected and forgotten grandeur of life; for in some instinctive way we know that beauty is no stranger. We respond with delight to the call of beauty because in an instant it can awaken under the layers of the heart some forgotten brightness. "
- John O'Donohue, from divine beauty/ The Invisible Embrace
