The Alchemist Grove 16: flutes

We keep exploring of our senses. This week, we focus on hearing. When I wake up in the morning, especially if I slept with open windows, I love to be awaken by the sounds of my environment… I still have my eyes closed, my body is laying there, peacefully. And I know I am home […]

The Alchemist Grove 15. The bowl

This week we will explore another sense: taste. We often don’t really give it enough of our attention. We like this meal, or we don’t like it, we are attracted to this or that, but we rarely experiment our taste. I love tea. And I am trying to learn plants property to mix herbal teas […]

The grove/ le bosquet: upgrades/améliorations

I wasn’t happy with 2 of the cards, so I took the time to upgrade them a bit to make them better fit with the grove. Je n’étais pas satisfaite de deux cartes, j’ai donc décidé de les refaire, pour qu’elles soient plus en phase avec le bosquet: Growth rings/ anneaux de croissance Here is […]

The Alchemist Grove 14. The feather

We keep exploring the Grove with our senses. This week, we will focus on touch. I usually don’t touch people I don’t know. Once I know who I am dealing with, then I can start touching them. Because, to me, touch is a very important sense. It creates a connection, a special bond between two […]

The Alchemist Grove 13. Dew drop

First week of Spring, everything seems to wake up. I thought it would be a good idea to start our exploration of the Grove with our five senses. Beginning this week with sight. We often look at things, look at people, look at landscapes… Without seeing them. So this week, we will truly try to […]

The Alchemist Grove 12. The Egg

The time has come for us to get out of our shell, of our comfort zone and to explore the Grove. We need to get rid our our dull enveloppe to let our shining selves wander between the trees, connect with Nature and explore the magic of our existence. We are so used to shell […]

The Alchemist Grove 11. The Door.

Last week of winter. It’s time for us to step out of our shelter and to start our new journey in the grove. A door is opening, as well as we are. Outside, everything is peaceful and welcoming. We can confidently make our first step forward. We already have a choice to make. But we […]

The Alchemist Grove 10. Bag

This week, we pack our bag to make sure we have everything we’ll need on our journey. I love packing. Because I put in my bag a mix of things I need wherever I go, and things I want to take with me. It’s a moment of choice, of preparation to live something unusual, to […]

The Alchemist Grove 09. Books

Books are magical to me. Words have their own magic power, they can materialize our deepest feelings, our secrets, as well as they allow us to have access to other people thoughts, inner world. They are this simple but effective mean to communicate knowledge, from centuries ago, or the latest discoveries. They create a culture, […]

The Alchemist Grove 07. The Pool.

This week, we take the time to look within. Self-reflection is an essential part of growth. By looking at what we did, what we lived, how we acted, how we lived it, what we learned from it, we have a better understanding of ourselves and the world we hold within. I love to take some […]
