I haven’t yet had a chance to write my pieces about the Girdle Vessel and its importance and links to ancestral energy. So I thought I would share a haiku reflecting on the energy of our ancestors, I wrote in the summer (2012) instead. The Japanese link with Haiku seems appropriate. This was inspired by walking to a stone circle which is on Dartmoor; Scorhill Stone Circle on Gidleigh Common. It was built in the Bronze age and is considered one of Devon’s finest stone circles. I like to contemplate how people lived in the landscape all those years ago. They would have course had a very different relationship to nature and were much more dependant on its rhythms. This is essentially how natural elements form such a feature of eastern traditions of healing which are such a part of my life. For me these energies are universal and shiatsu and acupressure are not foreign or irrelevant to us. Enjoy.
