Here's the recording of our December 2021 Winter Solstice journey circle and celebration.
The focus of this circle was working with the element of Earth. Jason began by sharing information about this element and then gave a drum bath with our ceremonial drum, Moorland Whisper. Then, Nicola shared the natural history and underlying energy of one of the animals most closely associated with the earth: Mole. She then led a guided shamanic journey to seek insights from Mole around 'coming down to Earth'. We wrapped up with a Winter Solstice ceremony setting out intentions for this winter.
You can download the Grounding Drum audio track using the button at the bottom of this page. The transcript of the chat is below.
During the evening we referenced from the book 'Practical Elemental Magick' by David Rankin and Sorita D'Este. Here's the link to it on Amazon.
Two further books were referenced in the chat box by fellow participants. These were:
Here is a link to the Mary Oliver poem: Moles

19:26:48 From Rachel Hawkes : A two way flow
19:26:51 From AnnyTurner·Scarboro : I am sooo aware of that now It seems easy to tune into, the mycelium

19:34:40 From Kathy McVittie : This is bringing tears; utterly lovely and with simplicity and solidity.
19:34:58 From Gemma Bevan : It makes a lot of sense I was up early and went for a walk in the woods before dawn. All I could smell was damp earth and the woods were very quiet.

19:35:47 From Chris : Silence must be heard song by Enigma. The time has come to learn that silence must be heard

19:36:38 From Pauline Elsworth : what are the core messages of fire and air please?

19:41:00 From Paulina : I agree Veronica
19:41:00 From Jacinta : I dreamt about a mole the other night😊
19:41:17 From Lindsay Trevarthen : I teach that to my qigong students for relieving stress, worry and grief.
19:41:18 From Rachel Hawkes : They are another amazing pair! Sorita has written some great books on Hecate.
19:41:34 From AnnyTurner·Scarboro : Yes I was conscious of the mycelium through my back, in our opening meditation in the valley
19:41:41 From Susie Fox : Thanks Rachel. When I did Seichem Mastership I I had been on an allotment waiting list on the council and suddenly, I got an allotment. They had decided to cut the allotments available in half and give perfectly big enough allotments out to those on the waiting list. Spirit was agreeing: now you have Seichem Mastership you need to dig mud!!!!
19:42:02 From Fiona Keane (Galaxy S5) : yes Rachel read a bit of her x
19:43:23 From Rachel Hawkes : @susie - soo fab!

19:54:25 From Kevin Howells To All Panelists : Very quiet here
20:04:26 From Steve W : Thank you 💚🙏
20:04:41 From Rachael Halliday : Thank you. At first the rate made me feel the earth is still young. Then I wondered is it was more rapid because she is distressed. What action do we take for distressed beings…. Oxygen. I can’t put an oxygen mask on… by being her I deplete it so the message “plant trees, heal me, plant trees, love me” in time to the rhythm was the message I have received. Having repeated it mantra-like it felt the tone changed, the pulse felt fuller and stronger somehow. Thank you 🙏
20:04:48 From Julie Keadle : Thank you
20:04:53 From Jacinta : Thank you that was so beautiful 🙏
20:04:58 From Paulina : Beautiful and powerful, thank you

20:05:15 From Ali : Thank you, that was special.
20:05:19 From Kyla : Very powerful. It reminded me of something the dragons told me once, that the planet was not just called Gaia, but Mother Heart. (apparently we put the H at the end instead of the beginning and called it Earth) Not only because the planet had a heartbeat but because she looks after her children with unconditional love.
20:05:26 From kathycar : 🙏
20:05:36 From Susan : exactly my feeling womb og

20:14:26 From Katie Joanne : Surrendering to being totally in the dark and trusting my gut 100% xxx
20:14:55 From Melanie To All Panelists : The warm amigo darkness...
20:15:10 From AnnyTurner·Scarboro : Oh Wow so pertinent for me just now, I thk my gut has been telling me for a while, to the point of me having a poorly tum over it!!
20:15:36 From AnnyTurner·Scarboro : I was being polite!
20:16:15 From Chris : I wonder if mole is connected to the funghi network?
20:16:29 From Gemma Sealey : Born in the darkness, moving deeper into the chthonic memories, I really like this diligent animal
20:17:16 From Rob Lines : reckon mole is connected to funghi Chris
20:20:06 From deb : Sorry lost signal briefly- what intention did you recommend please?
20:20:43 From Janet : they trusted their intuition
20:21:19 From Mair : Have you read Duncton wood by William Horwood - all about the mole world
20:42:56 From Melanie To All Panelists : That was an awesome journey!
20:43:07 From Kathy McVittie : Blue!
20:43:20 From Xenia Meinert : Hello Blue! <3
20:43:34 From Sam Ben : Hello Blue ❤
20:43:40 From Annkat : Blue 😍
20:43:41 From Lindsay Trevarthen : Sleep!
20:43:48 From Betty Spaghetti : Thank you 🙏🏽
20:43:51 From Maggie Hands To All Panelists : Well mole told me to unearth my treasures and told me to get on. He was a bit impatient! I got sent back even before the journey track finished.
20:43:52 From Rob Lines : roots of money plant and roots of a beech occupied my mind though that.
20:43:56 From Norma Corp : lovely to see Blue I asked the universe for him to join
20:44:02 From Kathy McVittie : It was all about the nerve endings in my sensitive nose, and about my sensuality
20:44:12 From Helen Towers To All Panelists : Solitude in the woodland was the message from mole x
20:44:23 From Kyla : Interesting, I found that I couldn't journey as I was too restless, that I had to just get up out of my seat and walk around, ended up getting something to eat, and as I was coming back into my room, the callback beat started playing haha.
20:44:27 From Karen : I read Duncton Wood years ago, will dig it out to read again now, thanks for the reminder !
20:44:34 From Annkat : disappointed I couldn't find mole, but a goat came 🤔
20:44:38 From Jacinta : What a fantastic journey, thank you. I took myself actually outside for this. Mole has just informed me to stay in touch with Earth. I have a problem with staying ground so he is spot on!
20:44:43 From Fiona Keane (Galaxy S5) : Couldn't journey tonight , maybe partly cos I only got round to doing the Mycelium journey yesterday! So still processing that marvellousness😅
20:44:47 From Maggie Hands To All Panelists : Love Blue 💙
20:44:49 From Lisa : it's only by carving our own path that we can find the things that nourish our soul
20:44:56 From Kelly Kennedy : I meet Fox who took me to an underground wagon, where I swam with an Orca……the message was to ground in the earth and with water xxx
20:45:01 From Janis McCall To All Panelists : Touch is important, fully experiencing textures. Also accepting touch, going deep into my bones, the deep quiet of my bones
20:45:12 From Paula Caffrey : It’s ok to be in the dark about somethings. There are many delightful things in the dark.
20:45:27 From Sandra To All Panelists : I revisted my ancestral home. - I got the sense to contact the owner and ask if I can visit with my mother who used to live there. There are 2 huge monkey puzzle trees in that garden.
20:45:35 From Rachel Hawkes : He was a funny one - like a grumpy Yoda! Get connected, connect to that stillness and see that connection in all of the earth. As above, so below. Only in stillness will I find the answers.
20:45:50 From Melanie To All Panelists : Mole invited me to touch her fur and her paws and stroke her back. I said thank you for letting me touch you. And she said it’s important to let people touch you and not necessarily physically but allow people to touch your heart. And thank them for doing so. Also the mycelium was silver and glowing! It was warm and beautiful inside the earth!
20:45:53 From Kelly Kennedy : Underground lagoon….. not wagon 😉
20:45:58 From kathycar : Best journey ever, Mole Told me to be quiet and not keepin jumping ahead. Slow down, think before I act , listen think and then act. This explains my behaviour recently.
20:45:58 From Dorothy Robbie : A memory surfaced from my childhood of lots of moles that had been trapped and hung on the wire fences of fields. So sad. I said sorry to mole for man’s cruelty.
20:46:00 From fae : I shall watch my dreams and see what comes as i fell asleep 😴
20:46:04 From Sujatin Johnson : Draw a line under things that I have outgrown - that are holding me back by me hanging onto a thread.
20:46:08 From deb : I had mud applied over me while lying on a stone table by a guide- better than a spa day😊
20:46:12 From Mair : Mole said, no need to push too much or make too much effort, just trust. Also to be still and silent and listen or sense what I need to do next. there is no hurry, you are loved and nurtured x
20:46:12 From Ann : Hi Blue❤️ I was given a message re feeling safe, grounding and silence. To change my passwords. My mind can be overactive so calming. Mole was with me all through.
20:46:23 From Paulina : Perfect guide for me, into the darkness and into the unknown, new pathways - to trust myself and my instincts. So many questions and finding the answers.
20:46:24 From Janet : that was the most restful journey ever.mI went through the loose soil into mole's tunnel and came to a dark chamber. she said she would go and make tea, I could either keep digging or rest. I chose to rest and felt secure and held . I could smell compost and felt totally comfortable
20:46:30 From Katie Joanne : A message from mole has been that 'eyes can bring deception and pretence' and not to use them to make decisions - or to pretend myself - a need to be real. I followed mole as she made her way through the soil and I saw luminous strands lighting up as she pushing forward. She had a territory she worked and found enough to eat within it. xx
20:46:34 From caroline To All Panelists : Initially in a hostile environment wanted to leave but returned and a group of moles look me to a large field and meet my past pets (cats) and feel the message that I need to let myself grieve. Cried a lot.
20:46:40 From Xenia Meinert : that was very interesting - firstly when I entered the door I saw another tunnel under the earth, and a badger came, wanting to tell and Show me Badger stuff. 😉 After I told him About mole, he brought me further, and then I found myself doing mole Things, digging earth, shoveling it behind me. Feeling if it is too solid (Stones, roots) or if it's earth that I can shovel away. Digging around obstacles like Stones, Eating if something is delicious, shoveling earth behind me and kicking away with the feet what I don't Need.
20:46:50 From Ali : I had some disturbing images, felt oppressed, unable to move freely. It's about recognising my fears around being underneath the earth. I need to be a different form to go to ground - fungus or a mole - go beyond my human self.
20:46:55 From Kim : I never found mole until it was time to come back but hesaid I could come back again
20:47:05 From Katie Joanne : ... She showed me that the trails I make in my own living and surviving touch on others ecospheres and I have bigger impact than I know xxx
20:47:09 From Chris : Message to clear out old clutter, mentally and physically. Best done in the dark days. Also to rest ready for the new.
20:47:19 From Xenia Meinert : touching, Feeling if I can use it, put it aside, eat it or if I have to move around it because it is an obstacle.
20:47:25 From Sandy Holt : I have been restless all night for some reason - I finally relaxed and dozed just as the drum called us back… the message was that I need to quieten my mind and get sufficient rest to hear the guidance I need.
20:47:28 From Miranda : I went for a long walk today and all along the path for most of the walk were molehills. So I already felt connected. Fox took me to mole. Mole told me to keep things simple to go to Earth stay relaxed. Eat. **** 'Rest. Mole hugged me and urged me to let go of trying too hard.
20:47:37 From Sam Ben : Mole scared us when I opened the door and soil came pouring in to the room, thankfully my companion managed to hold the soil tide back. Once we were able to go through into the tunnel, Mole reminded me to work more deeply with my crystals and to make sure that the tunnels I create on my path don't fall into each other, so to make sure I keep all options open x
20:47:44 From Ann : Mair I read the whole series of Duncton Wood and often remember it.
20:47:47 From Rosslynne : am just loving Blue's purring
20:47:56 From Rob Pearson : mole talked of immersion integration the healing unity of mind and body as earth and sky are .
20:48:03 From Kathy McVittie : @Annkat Goat is important to me so thank you
20:48:05 From Alison Gaffney : Loved meeting mole and my owl guide was there already - I lay down in a field of mole hills and was invited into moles tunnel world. Mole explained about using my senses and being aware of the different types of soil and earth. There were sometimes obstacles and you need to move around them. Tree roots help sometimes to hold the earth in place ... I came back up with a woosh up a mole hill.
20:48:18 From Eileen : Push out all the things you do not need, like the mound of soil left by mole. Petrichor.
20:48:59 From George : immerse myself in earth,,,mole got me to lie down and painted my face with earth,relax and rejuvenate
20:48:59 From Anne Jepson : Great journey thank you, met with mole and he told me to dance to connect with the earth, then lie down and feel the earth beneath me, feeling the energy in my hands and feet. Saw vivid emerald green around me xx
20:49:21 From Rosanna Zabeth : I felt a bit knocked back by mole's treatment of worms!but the message for me seemed to be the need to be more 'ruthless' in the need to nurture the self, no namby pambying around!
20:49:25 From jackie kersley : I met mole, he was like a wise old grandfather, complete with spectacles. He very seriously told me to look after my health better. To Carry on taking care of my garden and walk more often with no purpose, just slowly walk and be quiet. Not to talk so much. 😂😂
20:49:43 From AnnyTurner·Scarboro : It was! When I went through the door and was straight away in a tunnel! Mole said "Trust and know, as what you feel within, is what I feel in the earth, Feel your inner depths, your inside Trust what you know and feel inside. What is outside, what you see or are told is not you. Listen to your inner voice. Make your own tunnels, trust and feel supported as I do in the earth. There is great strength in this. Everything will be clearer" ---then my scribble got so I couldn't read it but I will sit with it later
20:50:33 From Janet : the ability to rest completely 💚
20:51:05 From Katie Joanne : My intention is to close my eyes and ears and let me intuition see and hear. xx
