As She Is: Film About A Personal And Collective Journey by Megan Mc Feely

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious.
If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door.
If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door.
If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.” 
― Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Speaking about the impetus that lead her to make this film Megan writes on her website:

For years there was this deep sense of insecurity inside…or rather a wrongness
about my existence that I did not know how to describe.
I tried to live the values of the culture, follow the roadmap to success
imparted to me through community, family and school.
I was determined to be an “acceptable” kind of woman, even though I was obviously not.
So I got educated, went into business, wore suits, thought rationally,
competed against others and was successful for a time, but then my life fell apart.

I had been looking outside— in what I did, what I had, who I knew—for who I was,
but it didn’t work. The best way to say it was the outside was not connected to the inside
so I was living someone else’s idea of me (who I wonder?)
I was not free and did not know how to live what I valued.
I had no idea if there was a more natural way for me to be.

It became clear that the only way I could understand was to explore
from the inside…to renounce what the culture valued and reconnect to my inner knowing.
I now know this unknown inner dimension of myself as the feminine….
so I started with a simple question that guided my journey. What is the feminine?

I asked some remarkable people who embody these traits to find out how they would describe the feminine,
to get a sense of how being connected to this part of themselves informs their lives and
how it is lived in balance with their masculine aspect.

This is my personal inquiry, but I have a sense that this film is also
about our collective journey towards wholeness because I am simply a microcosm
of the macrocosm…and so are you’.

This film Includes conversations  with Anat and Llewellyn Vaughan- Lee, Hilary Hart, Larry Merculieff,
Maata Lynne Baron, Orland Bishop and Vandana Shiva amongst others.

Only A Question Of Time, radio play by Alan Plater

One of my favourite radio plays is currently available to listen to again for the next four weeks
on BBC iplayer.
It is Alan Plater’s Only A Question Of Time.

Once upon a time an Englishman met a Welshman in a field. . .
he was there to tell him the correct time.
It’s hard for us to imagine these days that  up to the Victorian era Britain had a difference in time of half-an-hour from the eastern to the western extremities.
The play begins with the arrival of an Englishman representing, Isambard Kingdom Brunel:
he comes to tell the Welsh that due to railway expansion,
time needs to be changed ie standardised.
Plater’s comedy is a real juxtaposition of consciousness,
that of ‘rural’ and ‘rational’ man and their very different experiences of time and some of the consequences within our society over the next two centuries:  Link

So if you can find 45 minutes to just sit and listen whilst the sun goes down….
if not then maybe whilst commuting by train……

John O Donohue: Anam Cara – Soul Friend & Imagination As The Path Of The Spirit

These two talks are very inspiring and give such a profound sense of our sacred connection to life, and just how short a space of time it is that we are here on Earth.
These talks also draw on the wisdom of the medieval Mystic Meister Eckhart and are all the more poignant as John died only months later, aged 52.

Nativity
by John O’Donohue, from Conamara Blues

No man reaches where the moon touches a woman.
Even the moon leaves her when she opens
Deeper into the ripple in her womb
That encircles dark, to become flesh and bone.

Someone is coming ashore inside her,
A face deciphers itself from water,
And she curves around the gathering wave,
Opening to offer the life it craves.

In a corner stall of pilgrim strangers,
She falls and heaves, holding a tide of tears.
A red wire of pain feeds through every vein,
Until night unweaves and the child reaches dawn.

Outside each other now, she sees him first,
Flesh of her flesh, her dreamt son safe on earth.
