I had an interesting experience while creating this doll – as I built up the layers of wool I had this image of creating a landscape of adding layers of soil and as I added her layers of clothes I was creating the all the layers of an ecosystem.

The inspiration for this doll was born in a time of ice, a time when great herds of reindeer crossed from mainland Europe across the to Britain, a time when Britain wasn’t an island. She was there with the first herds and the people who then followed the herds. The wise women of these clans were the women who went into trance to contact this Great Mother of the herds to ask for a sign of where to find the herds and in ritual gave thanks for using them for food, shelter…

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

We were chatting in the kitchen at the time. Through the window I glanced to the right and I saw a momentary striking image, an indeterminate shadow of black and white twirling, pirouetting on the spot. My eyes couldn’t keep up with the speed of this strange sighting and within seconds it was gone.

I know what you might be thinking. Is she crazy? Did she imagine it? Had she been drinking?
An emphatic ‘No,’ to each of these!

I swear that I saw it and I wasn’t the only one to do so. I have witnesses. My two daughters were in the kitchen with me and they noticed it too and even more extraordinary my daughter’s boyfriend (at the time,) has seen it as well.

These sightings were so extraordinary that I wrote this passage in my novel.

The Silent Eye Workshop

The Silent Eye

This weekend saw the monthly meeting of the Silent Eye in the north of England… a time when we reconnect, share and explore ideas and discuss plans for the four workshops we run every year. Work is already well under way for Lord of the Deep, the April workshop, which will explore the Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the oldest stories known to man, but our next workshop is a far less formal affair.

These informal workshops are held at various places across the country, making them as accessible as we can to anyone who would like to come along and meet us, see what we do, and visit a variety of historic or ancient sites in the process.

Readers who have followed our adventures at previous workshops, such as the recent Giant and the Sun weekend in Dorset, will know that we manage to see and experience a…

Amazonite & Howlite Antler prayer Beads – click to view in the shop

This prayer beads set is a combination of amazonite and howlite beads. Its inspiration lies in working with two worlds. The idea came to me while I was on my annual retreat on an Island off the West Coast of Scotland – and island whose myths include one of Amazon warriors – Scottish Amazon warriors!
The inspiration lies in the power of these women, the symbol of them in today’s world fighting for what is right, for community and place which is represented by the amazonite. On the other hand, these women were rooted in their faith, their belief in the ancestral Goddesses of Scotland whom they saw the earth herself embody. These beads hold the power for us to stand in our own truth while we face all that is wrong with the world today and…
