Sherwood Forest Refuge


20160829_160443_resized.jpg

Like Robin Hood and the Merry Men, we took refuge in the Sherwood Forest as our last haven home in Canada before re-entering the States. This seemed symbolic of this portion of our tale coming to closure and stepping into greater clarity from any illusion of “fantasy”, while also owning our power to create the faery tale of our own dreams. Nestled in an idyllic little forest oasis protected by century old elms of Sherwood Forest Golf & County Club, we have been navigating the new journey ahead by heart consciousness.

Although we’re still finishing out this last day today, I thought to share this post, as I am winding down things on my end.

We’ve had two and a half days and three nights here, which was just enough to prepare us for re-entrance into the States tomorrow.

We spent most of our time hunkered down in the quiet of this remote forest community, which is about 25 minutes from the city of Regina.

Alongside our own focuses, we spent quiet time around the pond pool at the edges of the forest overlooking trees and the rolling hills of the golf course and strolling the large grounds at dusk.

Sherwood Forest is a really unique little community and resort that hosts 268 yearly owned/leased campsite lots of residents who live in rv’s or a few mobile homes, and have their own magickal little plots of land creating an enchanted little neighborhood community of tiny mobile house living.

It was fun wandering through the streets named after things you’d find in the tale of Robin Hood and seeing the yards each person has uniquely created – some with gardens, decks, water features, and more.

Then there are the short term campsites like ours available, with use of the entire grounds.

I was able to finish my current book I’m reading (4th in a series) with so much peacefulness, but also spent time in contemplation and reflection on the path ahead, as everything is getting turned upside down again to view from a new perspective.

Makes sense with all of the major planetary dynamics unfolding including the two solar and lunar eclipses on the new and full moons this month beginning the first of September in Virgo (our first full day back in the States) and in Pisces come the 16th.

During our time here we did venture into Regina for errands, along with trying an all vegan/vegetarian restaurant called Hunter Gatherer Vegetarian Diner (quite unique and yummy) and then taking a 3 mile stroll around Wascana Lake in the 6 square mile Wascana Centre Park (simply beautiful and felt like an early Autumn day).

Regina is a lovely city with Victorian homes on some of the streets downtown near the many parks, and a host of interesting restaurants, and health food stores.

Magick was in the air, felt in that early Autumn breeze and even fun signposts like this street sign.

Elphinstone has several meanings but felt like an oracle path a faery or elf might follow in the Lord of the Rings or something, since we seem to be venturing in mythical tales lately including literally living in Sherwood Forest for a few days.

I’ve noted the shorter days and softening light.

I’ve been sensing an early and colder Winter this year.

And it’s the first year I’ve actually witnessed chipmunks hiding their acorns and have had so many run-ins with bears bulking up for their long Winter’s naps.

I feel a hibernation coming on early myself, to include a real hunkering down and need for retreat into creative madness…the kind that is intoxicating and fruitful and will manifest newness in all areas of life.

I’ll be sharing an update soon on where things are currently and upcoming changes at hand.
