Story & Experience

My mother had an operation the day before the Global Earth Exchange, so due to the uncertainty as to how that would unfold, we didn’t make it official, as didn’t want to let people down.

However, there were 9 of us (myself, Arron, Louisa, Andy, Suzanne, Robert, Rhys, Danny and Lucy). We went to a hill just behind my house (Kilvey Hill), as it had recently been victim to a number of deliberately started fires. We all felt the sadness of the hill, at a time of new life. So wanted to show it some love and healing.

We made a rather interesting looking bird (definitely use your imagination when looking at the photo), played music, chanted, sounded and came together in love and creativity. It was beautiful. Thank you.
