Wild Hearts Sipping Cups of Whisker Tea
As part of the Wild Hearts Sipping Cups of Tea series, it was with utter delight that I followed a trail set down by The Faerytale Apothecary's very first human co-conspirator.
Issa (pronounced eeeesssa) is a priestess, chaos witch, and wise woman of a certain age. During the day she works as a staff wellbeing expert for the civil service, making sure people get a fair deal at work. She also leads staff pagan networks so people can come together and share their faith and love of the earth. She holds the space where people need to be and holds the people when the space is too big for them. She is a daughter, a mum, and a grandma, who enjoys travelling Britain with her tiny caravan. Join us on this our most marvelous adventure!
The Faerytale Apothecary's Wild Hearts Sipping Cups of Tea is an experimental affair seeking to follow the Medicine Trails left by Words from Specially Appearing Stories. The recordings will often times be messy unedited affairs that aim to include all the languages from all the peoples (regardless of species or corporeality) into the conversations. There will be no written transcripts, simply an offer to sit a while, listen and see where you might be taken, prompted, curiosly led to. Other humans will be invited to gather our good weather gear for the trip from time to time. Our starting point may sometimes shift in location but home will always be with That Which Dwells Beyond The Gap In The Old Stone Wall - the creative space for my ongoing Doctoral Research. Research which will no doubt pop in on occasion too. Individual Words will be our doors to inner (and perhaps sometimes outer) landscapes. There will be Spontaneous Stories making Guest Appearances. We will explore what it may mean to be Touched by a Story. We will welcome Ordinary Story Speakings. We will Gather Glitterings in our Baskets as we make our way. All served up about once during a month with a drop of tea crafted by a Wild Heart or two. To listen to the gathering, simply press play...
