Geomancy in Action!
I have been drawn to the concept of working with the Earth in experiencing and creating Sacred Space for many years now, and have made a number of geomantic works, both permanent and temporary. This has blended well with my other work as a professional astrologer, as I time the creation and use of geomantic work with the transits of the Sun, Moon and planets.
I prefer to work with earth, stone and wood for most pieces, and am continually inspired by the ancient megalithic works of our ancestors, both in Britain and abroad. I will often go to ancient sites to get information and design ideas for my work, and hope to leave some interesting sites for my own descendants to experience.
I am happy to work in both large and small scale, and can create sites of a permanent nature on peoples' own land, or temporary pieces on public land for special events. I am very drawn to making circles, spirals and labyrinths, which I feel are echoing Nature and her grand designs.
I am also very interested in the use of Sacred Space, and am happy to both create a space and show how it can be used, for ceremony, or as a calendar of the seasons, or simply as a beautiful place to be. Sacred Space tends to evolve over time, and according to the needs of those who live with it, so this is also a focus, to make places that grow and develop with the years.
My own land has a number of my works on it, and can be visited to get an idea of the scale and type of thing I do. I am usually able to work with local materials, which feels the right thing for me to do, and most appropriate in terms of integrating with the land. I lived on the land, in a tipi, for 6 years, and feel this has given me a deep insight into the turning of the seasons, and the ability to be in touch with earth energies.
