I would like to thank all of you who have rejoined my Healing Music newsletters. Thanks for pushing the button or link or e-mailing me, much appreciated and glad to have you on board for my future adventures! I am sending each of you a heart hug!
I am just back from a fun filled week at Bancroft. I offered another workshop at Grail Springs and had some incredible experiences!!!! We were out in a canoe having a boxed lunch and up above an eagle started to circle around us. Then another and another until there were four eagles floating high above (maybe they had their eye on that boxed lunch.......). The last evening I was playing my flute as I led the group out towards the tepee. I looked up to see a double rainbow shining down on us. There wasn't any rain, just this beautiful double rainbow that was joined together - a single strip of radiant colours. wow
Here is picture from the Enchanted Forest at the Grail.
