I will pack my bag with my special things, with wand and stone, incense and bowl.
I will wander to the woods, to the place where holly and oak grow around each other.
I will greet the trees, and the spirits of the place, asking for their blessings, for their welcome.
I will take off my shoes, and barefoot I will call to the gods asking for their strength, their blessings, their wisdom and their love.
I will say my prayers. I will enter silence. I will sit and listen inwards and I will look out to the beauty of the world.
