Indoor & Outdoor Imbolc Rituals coming up (in London) 2014

Imbolc (Candlemass) is one of the 8 nature based festivals that pagans celebrate – and it is said to be the time when the Winter Goddess who has kept her grip on the land loosens her hold, so that the ice melts and waters break and flow again. It is when the Goddess Bride (Brigid) `returns’ to the land. Her path is lit by candles, symbolising the return of light and warmth which is imminent. Bride is a Goddess of poetry, inspiration, healing, knot-magic and weaving. With her, she brings the gifts of 3 flames!   (Read more about Pagan Festivals)

Photos & Report of the Protest 

Kill the ivory trade – not the Elephants! Action for Elephants UK Protests outside Chinese Embassy!!

Can you imagine an outside being coming to hack away human bodies..  just so that they can carve out human skulls and bones as trophy for their collection…or worse..  powdered human bones for their tasty meals..or medicines?  (well, this was already imagined and filmed as `The Predator’ starring Arnold Schwarzenegger)!

Luckily, we don;t have aliens who come to Earth to do this..  But we humans are quite happy to do it to other animals..  Elephants massacred for their tusks, Rhinos killed for their horns.. Tigers for their tooth,  fur and testicles..Whales & Dolphins..and more beasts ..all for our human greed and consumption!

I was feeling tired yesterday, ..and going to be a rather low-key presence at the Peaceful Protest outside Chinese Embassy, London..to band ivory trade..  Showing up and adding a body of support was more important, than not showing up because of personal circumstances..

But  I kept thinking about why I am doing it..  ? for me.. for the Kudos..just like some celebrities and politicians do..  to say they support some eco-campaign..?   Or to really make a difference…and really save the Elephants?

Personal tiredness is one thing..and is often self-inflicted due to the kind of life styles we lead..   But life or death..  the situation those Elephants face..are not life-style choices for them..is it?    They have no power or control over that one..  An external force (the madness of mankind) takes away that. …and their lives too..  Because their tooth is somehow `valuable’   – for medicinal reasons, or just purely as status symbols or art and craft..  !

So I got off my tired back-side, grabbed the Elephantom mask, and got into London..  to join fellow decent eco-warriors, campaigners, protestors and carers…  to be outside the Chinese Embassy in London, to send out a physical message…that we do not approve..  that we want them to get their government to stop the ivory trade in their lands…so that somewhere in other lands (Africa & India) poachers won’t have a reason to kill Elephants.. to supply ivory to the Chinese people..!

My Elephantom (Eco-Hero) mask  had the desired result..  in attracting a bit of entertaining attention from passers by, as well as Media people..  (well, they want something more than slogans, banners and placards to photograph..  Entertainment sells papers!!  So shamelessly some of us exploit that to put our messages across!)

My fellow protesters made sure they stood with their slogans and placards ..right besides me or behind me..  so those will come in photos too 🙂

Well, it was a great success..  Already initial search reveals so many big news papers in Uk have covered the event.. (links blow).

And for a first event of a new eco-(elephant) activist group, Acton for Elephants UK have done very well indeed.. Maria Mossman, who pulled us all together and started this deserves a huge hug..(never mind the pat on the back..organising this sort of thing takes a lot of guts..apprehensions, stress..and a hug will go a long way ..than a pat on the back..in soothing all that stress ! 🙂  

We’ve had incredible support from Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) with Mary Rice Executive Director participating and giving speeches, as did ..Dominic Dyer from `Care for the Wild’, and Will Tavers from Born Free..

Watch video here of all the speeches

Needless to say, we are going to keep up the good work..and the pressure..  We’ve only just begun!!

Chinese New Year 2014 (Year of the Green Horse)

Chinese New Year 2014, the Year of the (Green) Horse  (element: Wood) , falls on 31 January 2014 (usually the first New moon in Aquarius).

Chinese New Year 2014- Year of Wooden Horse- art by Mani Navasothy

As usual, festivities will be taking place on the nearest Sunday, which is  Sunday 2 February’14..  in central London, taking in Trafalgar Square, Chinatown and Shaftesbury Avenue.

The event will start with a parade along Charing Cross Road and Shaftesbury Avenue starting at around 10am. The main stage in Trafalgar Square will feature visiting artists from China. There will also be lion teams circulating around Chinatown, local artists performing on a stage at the end of Dean Street and traditional food and craft stalls.

I have been visiting these festivities in London ..on and off..for a number of years, on my own or with friends..  As an astrologer , I have an interest in  chinese astrology, and as an Esoteric Practitioner of magic , I find their energy systems (Feng Shui) quite interesting and akin to the various ones I explore or follow..  (My sister knows far more about both these than I do!).    This is notwithstanding the fact that from my University days to present day,  my closest friend and fellow Physics Graduate is of Hong Kong Chinese origins;  another closest friend from my Civil service work years is of Vietnamese Chinese origins, and a close Pagan friend is also of Hong Kong Chinese origins..  (Effectively along with 2 others, they form my most dearest, trusted and closest friendship group! ) 🙂

Anyway, if you like to see what it’s going to be like in China Town (London), here’s a Video I filmed and put together few years ago.  Chinese New Year video 2012  (I seem to have misplaced the video footage from 2013)!

Peaceful Protest to Ban ivory trade (25th Jan’14 London)

Action for Elephants UK will be holding a peaceful demonstration outside the Chinese Embassy in London on 25 January 2014.  This demonstration will be conducted in a peaceful and respectful way towards China.

Peaceful protest 25Jan2014 to ban ivory - Outside chinese embassy (London)
Peaceful protest 25Jan2014 to ban ivory – Outside chinese embassy (London)

China is the world’s main consumer of ivory, with demand soaring in the last decade as more and more Chinese have acquired the means to buy it. The result of this escalating demand is a huge rise in poaching elephants for their tusks, to the point where the killing has reached unprecedented levels and threatens to wipe out elephants forever.

China have the ability and power to ban the trade in ivory, causing the demand for ivory to decline, giving elephants a fighting chance to recover in their numbers.

This event will be to welcome positive steps that China have taken in recent weeks and ask them to do more. To be world leaders in banning ivory and saving elephants.

Please join us on January 25th to add your voice at this event. We will provide placards that you can download and use on the day.

———–
Getting there – where and when
The closest underground station is Regent’s Park, about 8 minutes’ walk from the Embassy.

The demonstration will start at 11:00am. Everyone should start gathering at the embassy at 10:45am and we will remain there until 2:30pm.

Please wrap up warm; there are toilets and facilities close by for food and drinks.

O, to be a Man in modern times (Male Mysteries)

O, to be a Man in modern times:

So Brad Pit talks about standing by his woman (Angelina) when she lost 30 pounds and went through a low of all time.. and Dustin Hoffman emotionally explains the interesting thing about being a woman in Tootsie ..(`That was never comedy for me’..*tears*) ..

Do you think it’s time the rest of us men started to speak of our discoveries, our emotions, our hopes, sacrifices, dreams and nightmares.. and about the women who lifted us up.. and those who used us, abused us, envied us, feared us, toyed with us, loved us, hated us, and wanted to put us on planes and shoot it down?

Or shall we speak of those who could only see a threat and the large monstrous shadows the small boys within us cast? Shall we ordinary men speak of the darkness and light we have found in the hearts of the women in our lives?

Why must a man be praised only when he shows sensitivity to a woman or a child?
Why must he tuck his tooth, tail and claws, and submit or be vilified?

Why can’t a man’s voice be as strong as thunder and as sharp as a sword, as well as his touch be as gentle as feather and eyes soft and smokey as mist? Do we not worrhip Odin & Thor, Hern and Ares, as well as Pan and Sol and Osiris too? What of Chiron the mortally wounded warrior-Healer-Teacher? And Prometheus bringer of fire?

Isn’t it time.. for men to educate the world that we have more than just testosterone and beer flowing in our veins.. ?
There are moon-huts and red tents for women.. So isn’t it time for some Weyland-Huts and Sun-Circles..for men??

Males Mysteries in London - coming soon in 2014 (by Mani Navasothy / Hern's Tribe)
Males Mysteries in London – coming soon in 2014 (by Mani Navasothy / Hern’s Tribe)

Being a modern-man is not just about a pussy-kiss, a cock-rub or a bunny-tail dabbing on our faces and arses..
It is more than a spear to the Cauldron..
Deeper than a lance to the boil, more joyous than a wand to the Chalice.

It is not about the guilt of not being sensitive or strong, providing or not, or carrying the shame of men gone before and what they have done to other women..

Being a man is about the dance of light and life in all our dark places… turning war into peace, and peace into prosperity, with Sun in our hearts, moon in our brows, and Stag-horns adorning our Crowns..

It is much much more.. !
Background :

Back in 2002, in `Unicorns’ (my then-coven), a small group of men studying transpersonal psychology with the late Maureen Brown, began to meet monthly for `Male Mysteries’ discussions, prompted by Maureen. It lasted only few months. Some years later, I went on to start Hern’s Tribe, with ideas of it being a male mysteries group..but it evolved in a different way, encompassing men and women. For a long time, I have thought about these. A few years ago, Chris Crowley mentioned something about a Wiccan Male mystery meeting..that never materialised. With the guys of Hern’s Tribe, I’ve made some explorations (closed) on this subject.. exploring fire, using animals (road kills), tool making and so on (I once had to `procure’ a dead-Stag head using only a sharp edge of a branch..and later clean it all up only with craft knife to the bone..! So let’s just say Ia m no longer `squeemish’)

The NEWS: (Male Mysteries is coming to London)

So..in 2014, look our for one or two new things.. as preparations have been already underway..for few months on the exploration of `Male Mysteries (London). A facebook page & group are already set up (secret for now)..and additional pages in my Hern’s Tribe website are being developed too.. Dates for meeting are set.. and all will surface soon 🙂

Gaian Times: Eco-Spiritual Magazine #9 out now!

You know what..in all the excitement of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary event, I totally forgot to blog the fact that last week, the issue#9 of the Gaian Times e-Magazine was published online 🙂

Cover- Gaian Times #9 Nov2013
Cover- Gaian Times #9 Nov2013

Editor’s Letter

“…Gaian Times Magazine just keeps getting better – as more and more professionally published authors, experts and beginner-writers join our ever growing team of contributes!

In this issue, we are joined by Kenny Klein, who writes about a very Wiccan Samhain, Amber Agha sharing her shamanic perspectives on Releasing the past held by the land, Julie Dollman writes about Re-Engaging with Living Energy, and Christ Street focuses on the mystical nature of London – be it a city of revelations, planetary chakra or a Stargate!

That’s not all! John Dray, Andrew Durling & Maria Mossman contribute eco-themed reports on the Declining Bee population, the Fracking issues & movie, and the March for Elephants, UK – a new group set up to campaign for saving Elephants!

Something I had always wanted to know- and as if my magic- Bruce Nixon’s feature on how money is made by banks and the impact of monetary reform – covers my curiosity!

Gordina Steckert from Germany writes about spiritual concepts to keep us emotionally stable; Vathani Navasothy not only writes about Herbs fo ruse at Halloween, but gives us photo-blogs about the Dartmoor Stones – which rather nicely resonate with our mini-author profile on Rebecca Beatie who has written books on those very west country landscape-inspired fiction.. !

Wendy Stokes has once more contributed with a Book Review, and also written about the troubles caused by those `Teenage Exorcists from USA’.

My own interview / video follows up the matter, by giving an opportunity to Maria Savva -owner of Spirit of Isis. Interestingly, Maria’s son George Eralclides – whom I met during that event turned out to be a fashion blogger, and has contributed GT’s first fashion column!

And that’s not all.. By now you’ve seen the titillating images of that `Angel’ on the cover..and will know that we are starting some new features.. into the many worlds of alternative cultures. We start with a report on Erotica 2013!

Well, things are certainly going to warm up, as we head towards winter in western hemisphere, and summer in the southern hemisphere.

Earlier in 2013, GT took a few extra months to surface (April’13). But we are going to make up for it… with a special edition next month! (Oh yes, more work for me..I’ve only just finished with this issue!)

As it’s coming up closer to Christmas / Yule, and New Year, we’ll go with those themes..as well as our usual columns. Am already looking forward to `The Muse that got away’ (ahem, that will be a Burlesque feature on a good friend of mine who is very successful now in Canada!). We hope to have features from the alternative/ goth scene in Brighton; A persona profile of a Glastonbury Priestess of Avalon.. Astrology, and more!

So hurry up and finish reading this issue…before the next one gets here quickly!!

Best Wishes

Timelines: Personalised Doctor Who graphics – Celebrating 50 years of Time-Travel!

Well, by now you can’t have failed to notice..that the whole World is heading for a cataclysmic event of epistopic proportions..  (epic is such a common word now..so am borrowing `epistopic’ from the Doctor Who series itself!).

Actually it’s not cataclysmic …but jubilant and utterly Celebratory!

No other TV show has been going on for 50 yrs – yes okay with a few years of break in the middle! But that’s like a person going all recluse for few years and returning to family & friends.. What matters is when it started..and if it’s still `alive’  🙂   Besides, in the `gap years’ there have been plenty of audio & video dramas of Doctor Who stories..  starring actual past `Doctors’ ..so I call that a good continuity!

Right..  I have much to say about a Hero and a show that has inspired me, seen me through personal hard times, propelled me to go on and do a Physics Degree, turn my hate of History & Sociology into deep interests and much more..

But ..bit busy right now..!

So I’ll start ..by sharing some of my recent art works/ graphics…modeled on the `Time Lord mythos’ ..as it becomes applicable to my own life. (not that you’ll know..unless you are a close friend ..)

-Mani Navasothy

The personal story so far…

Timelines (c) Mani Navasothy   - May2013
1.  Timelines (c) Mani Navasothy – May2013

The original TimeLine graphics  (above) shows me at various events..wearing masks (for Pagan ceremonies etc).. and key points..  with key people (partner, sister)..

But the one below is a variation on my original `TimeLine’ graphics…but with a Halloween Twist (with `Death’) in the middle..  It’s as if other forces have started to interfere with my timelines..  (bit like when the `Great Intelligence’ jumped into the Doctor’s  time-steam in `The Name of the Doctor’)

TimeLines (c) Mani Navasothy 2013
2. TimeLines2 (c) Mani Navasothy 2013

And below you can see a recent one I started to do..  called `Regeneration’ ..as a result of  personal stuff…!   (yes I really was going through difficult times in my life ..this whole year has been like that- sadly).

Regeneration (c) Mani Navasothy 2013
3. Regeneration (c) Mani Navasothy 2013

On an artistic level, this (above) shows two separate `worlds’ merging..  (the outdoor nature shot is taken in Euston, London, and the indoor shot is part of the Westminster tube station, London..   and the Tardis is a photo of the model that is outside Earl’s Court tube station, London)..and me..well, that’s a photo of me in my room.. ! 🙂  The `jacket’ of course is my 9 year old `tribal jacket’ (that I wear for rituals in woodlands..)

This then leads into the one below.. called `UnRegenerate’ ..  and it takes the concept of a Regeneration `going wrong’..  (as in the case of when The Master trying to regenerate beyond his 12th incarnation in the `Deadly Assassin’ (Tom Baker story set in Gallifrey).  I used the same background graphics as before..but used a new photo of me being in my comfy night robes at home..

UnRegenerate (c) Mani Navasothy 2013
4. UnRegenerate (c) Mani Navasothy 2013

This then leads me to a strange one in the middle.. `Shadow Hunter’.  The idea is that the `Regeneration’ has gone a bit warped..creating a fractured / splintered personality..  ie the Shadow.. of the Self.

Shadow Hunter (c) Mani Navasothy 2013
5. Shadow Hunter (c) Mani Navasothy 2013

And all this finally brings about a happy resolution..which is.. `Manifestations’   – where the process is complete, and a more settled `new’ self finally surfaces and..settles..  🙂 ..and about time too…’cos it’ll be my birthday soon.. !  ps. If I ever run a big magical empowering conference or something ( a festival)  I’d call it..  `Mani-Fest’ of course… a play on words..my name..and festival..but also about manifesting your own realities..:-)

Manifestations (c)Mani navasothy nov13
6. Manifestations (c) Mani Navasothy  – Nov13

And that brings me to something else that I shall blog later this evening.. something that will blow you side-ways..to know ab out the good Doctor Who.. !

Video: Spirit of Isis Healing Centre’s Right of Reply (to Teenage Exorcists!)

Spirit of Isis Healing Centre (Waltham Abbey, London) gives their Right of Reply to the `Teenage Exorcists’ and `BBC3′ who filmed outside the Spirit of Isis, declaring it and the Goddess Isis to be demonic!

The Centre offers Spiritual Guidance, Healing, Holistic Therapies, Counselling Services and various Psychic services to anyone of any religious or spiritual belief, and so takes the accusations of the `Teenage Exorcists’ very seriously – as not just offensive and ignorant but also as one that can ruin the good name and reputation of a legitimate tax & bill paying shop/business in the UK.

International March for Elephants – Today 4th Oct’13

One elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory. At this rate, none will walk the earth in 2025. Help make a stand and join the March.

Organised by The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the International March for Elephants will take place in 15 cities across the globe on one day with one message `Ban ALL trade in ivory’

Join us for the peaceful march on Friday 4th October and unite for the protection of elephants in asking our Governments to work together in tackling the illegal ivory trade.

Meeting Time & Location: 10:45 – 11:00

Meet at Forum Magnum Square (SE1 7GL)

Begin March over Westminster Bridge to Parliament Square 11:30 – 13:30 & Peaceful protest in Parliament Square.

And guess what?

Elephantom is going 🙂
