If you would like to help you can buy a gemstone
for the Healing Circle
We need to create nearly 300m of path. We have two options, to buy the stones for this or to ask for them to be sent to us. We have decided that asking for others to be involved in this would be a lovely way of building a lasting monument.
So, please post us stones and old feed bags (or compost bags). We can then mark out the Labyrinth and as the stones arrive we can build the path bit by bit until we get to the middle bit.
We will donate the money to buy the Moonstone Gravel for the middle bit and anyone can send us gemstones or buy them from us to build the Healing Circle.
A Healing Circle is a circle of goodwill. We will hold a book of names of people who would like to be remembered on the last Thursday of every month. We cannot read out the names but the book will be put in the circle on that day as a remembrance of those who have passed away, for goodwill to go out to those who need it and as a thank you to those who have been a part of building it as their names go in the book as well.
Anyone anywhere can ask to be put in the book. They don't have to come here and it doesn't cost anything.
We are hoping to make a documentary of the making of the Labyrinth and add in as many Labyrinth based facts as possible. This will be in English and Welsh. If anyone would like to translate and narrate it into another language that would be very welcome.
We have been given packets of Lavender Seeds by Thompson & Morgan. So in February as part of the documentary we will plant and grow them. Although, we've hit a bit of a hitch. I bought one of those polytunnel/greenhouses, the green ones. We have taken in a rescue German Shepherd who was a little bit upset his first night and of all things he chose to chew that. So it may look a little patched! Jerry is forgiven, he's adorable.
Please send us stones for the path. Just put them in a box and post them to us! Or come and add your stones to the path.
Please send us your used animal feed bags and we will add them to the path and cover them with stones to make the path.
The new idea is to start the Labyrinth by donations of stones. The path can grow. The lavender will be planted in February and can be planted to mark out the path when it is big enough.
So, please send us your stones. If you clear your garden and have unwanted stones, please send them. That way by goodwill the Labyrinth will grow.
We have gemstones from the Healing Circle from the place we have moved from, that will start the focus. You are welcome to buy stones from us or send us stones.
I am looking for a "day job" where I can work from home
Of Old Castles and wild places...
We are all on a journey. Our paths cross and re-cross. No two moments are the same.
For us this is journey's end. This place is all that I could wish for but the missing piece could be plans, hopes and dreams that you have. We have the space and we have 28 days where we can make other people's hopes and dreams become reality.
We are a place of many parts...
ARAPAWA GOAT SANCTUARY
These beautiful little goats are rare breed and the numbers are frighteningly low. In 2006 6 were brought from Arapawa Island to try to conserve them. Since then the story has been chequered and we are now left with few in the UK but those who have them are dedicated and love them. We have the great honour to have some and we would like to set up a permanent Sanctuary.
They are not commercially viable and up to this point I have funded their upkeep myself. They are living with our other goats but to be able to breed them properly and keep the lines pure we need to create a safe and comfortable area for them. Hopefully we can fundraise to raise the money to do this or we can find some help to get the work done without a vast outlay of valuable funds.
There is a fabulous place to stay just down the road and a friendly taxi firm with people carriers to bring you here. So you can have the luxury of a hotel and the wildness of this place. An ideal combination if you enjoy a comfortable bed and a shower in the morning!

WALES COAST PATH
The path stretches from Amroth to Burry Port. We are very close to the path with a right of way which goes to it so ideal of you want to investigate it. Our bit comes under the Llansteffan bit on the brochure.
We are not a "site" as such. We have 28 days we can offer to others so that they can enjoy this place too. Please contact us if you are interested at firstname.lastname@example.org

This world is an amazing place. Nature in all its tooth and claw is the most magnificent of things that will always win out. We can drag the weeds kicking and screaming to the compost heap but they will be back as they are natural. We can force nature to our will but the Mother will laugh and decide otherwise.
Blessed be all those who are good in this world but to those who wish others ill will, I wish you all that you deserve with love and light. So shall it be...
