The presence in these stones has been calling me here for years. And, here I am. I have nothing to say. And so, it is funny what came through, as I am now without my usual waterfall of words. Not even a trickle.
Today, my new friend and professional Guide of Orkney’s sacred sites, Kath Wood told me, “You should write a book.”
I am told that over and over. Is now the time? Now is the time. Yes.
And, so, the day I met the Stones of Stenness,
and The Ness of Brodgar,
and The Ring of Brodgar I could feel something else wanting to be born, birthed, expressed, illuminated.
Stories are fun to write and share, and this journey is the perfect adventure, with photos, to embark on a full epic telling, and then, the next time the 100th person says, “You should write a book.” I’ll say, “I have. It’s called….”…& it will have a title.
How fun, something new…like being connected to these Stones and works of Art and Function.
I will trust whatever comes through, in its own timing. Magic is carrying me now. I must trust & move with what is moving me.
Core Clarity invites personal & spiritual alchemy transforming:
Old trauma, disease, pain, fatigue, chronic body/mind/spirit conditions
Addictive patterns, despair, feelings of wanting to give up on Life
Stagnancy, lack of motivation, lethargy, depression
Isolation, fear of moving forward, anxiety, panic attacks
Childhood trauma, abandonment, abuse, neglect, lack of safety
Anger, frustration, impatience with others, with Life or with ‘God’
Lack of self-worth, low self-esteem, feeling undeserving
Core Clarity is an alchemical, transformational process that connects us directly to Source and activates the clearing of any limitations or blockages that are preventing us from our full expression. As this transmission of High Healing Sacred Energy melts into the body it begins to expose, release, and dissolve anything that is not based on Pure Love, Expansion and Growth of Consciousness.
Old imprints, mindsets and behaviour patterns are quickly dismantled and released. It is an effective process of Living Prayer that illuminates and reveals Living Blessings, Purpose & Guidance where they were once obscured. We work with High Healing Consciousnesses, as well as your own Guardians & Spirit Helpers.
It is normal to experience some heat, tingling or vibration as sacred energies clear your body’s resonance and field through a deep purification process. This is the unwinding & transmutation of traumas & limitations, opening the cells, expanding consciousness & allowing Life force to move freely again where it may have been stuck or stagnating due to blockages that are now dismantling, clearing & adjusting to a new level of freedom & clarity.
Core Clarity opens a powerful doorway directly tothe Heart of Our Creator, the Source of our Life, igniting an energetic, telepathic process for Cellular Healing & Core Transformation. This training opens our entire system to the highest levels of Light & Illumination.What resonates with these frequencies remains while all else surfaces to be released.

Claire: “It is my pleasure to share decades of experience from training globally as a Facilitator, Singer, Songwriter, Artist, Earth Art & Architecture Builder/Teacher, Certified Permaculture Designer, & an Ethical & Co-creative Woman.
My passions are to share what inspires me: walking & singing in Nature, gardening food forests, teaching regenerative living, building eco-homes, creating art, & writing songs & stories to illuminate clarity.
From 2012 to 2016, I served as Permaculture Designer, Executive Assistant, Accounting/Quickbooks, Farmers’ Market Coordinator, BCorp Purchasing Expert, Website Editor & Blogger & Marketing Assistant for HOKU NUI MAUI, LLC in Makawao. (www.hokunui.com), a 260-acre Regenerative Farming Community.
The Maui Permaculture Network (MPN) began in 2006. I founded The MPN on April 19, 2006, by gathering a group of fellow, new, experienced, & elder Permaculturists together. We created The MPN to learn & to grow abundance & beauty.
We started with monthly potluck gatherings & weekly workshops. Our path now includes expanding to include Orkney, Scotland, & everyone in between, all around this planet. The MPN with our wider Maui island community is a powerful ‘ohana/family, united in dissolving the corruption of Nature, & human & environmental health at the root to allow the beauty & truth of our Nature to flourish & thrive in diversity and unity.
I invite co-creation on Orkney to begin:
Exploring my roots, inviting & accessing further ancestral healing & gifts
Recording Songs, Writing Songs & Singing,
Sharing Regenerative Living Workshops, inc. Body Ecology(.com),

Thank you for being here. Everyone has value. We are Nature.
In the name of sharing.
The Maiden Stone is easily seen at roadside, with parking just in front.
Persephone is over a stone wall, and 2 fences, hidden in thick woods. Carved by Sandy Smith (Persephone Photos: below Maiden Stone photos):
The Maiden Stone, also known as the Drumdurno Stone after the nearby farm, is a Pictish standing stone near Inverurie in Aberdeenshire in Scotland, probably dating to the 9th century AD.
I can feel my life lit up by this presence, this living sculpture; changed, for good.
Stone Woman: Persephone ~ Sending great thanks to: Martin Watt, who offered: “Persephone statue, Crowmallie, Garioch, Scotland.
The wonderfully monumental statue of Persephone, carved from 8.5 tons of millstone grit, stands in a glade 100m to the west of the Pictish Maiden Stone.
It was carved 55 years ago by Sandy Smith an artist living in Crowmallie House.
The Statue carries a mirror as does the female on The Maiden Stone.”
The Isle of Harris has a fan, & I have never been there,
but I have seen it through the lens and gifted eye of Ian Lawson: Photographer, Path Illuminator, Genius. Here, you get a tantalizing peek at his vision, dedication & connection to The Isle of Harris and their tweeds and tartans woven with island Magic. It is way up North and to the left, OK, that’s west.
The morning began. June 10th, 2016. More sun, always sun, ever since I arrived in Scotland. Funny.
First, we got lost in the country, on the quiet, sheep-farming backroads. Next, we got found, & shared tea with Hilary’s artistic friend, Fiona McDonald. I was brought to meet Hilary’s friend, Fiona, at her farm house, because artists like meeting other artists. She showed us her beautiful succulent designs in wall hangings and terrariums:(https://dycenews.com/2016/06/16/plants-for-free-the-potting-shed/)
Fiona understood me right away. Out came the sweets, & a big pot of hot tea, followed by an elegant tome: the book, below, by photographer, Ian Lawson.
And, then, I thought about how much I wish you were all sitting here with us, dining on biscuits & caramel bars so good I ate mine and then had to sniff the wrapper, extensively.
The Silent Loom
This is Bella. She died in 2010, but could she ever, really?
Each page of the massive book has Ian’s impressions of The Isle of Harris next to … just look; I am speechless:
Are you with me?
Stag…Woven colors that make me weak with delight.
A ewe, and her other offspring: wool woven with love.
My laundry would be just as colorful.
May The Isle of Harris dry my laundry someday, soon.
Welcome to this step, this precious first step into what can only be met with awe. Stepping into The Mystery with no plan, only willingness, faith & love. Seems like a perfect toolkit to guide & carry me, and then there are my 5 bits of luggage, full of endless art supplies, and my guitar, Valentine. Oh, yes, we are Home.
When I boarded the plane from London Heathrow, I had missed two flights, in LAX & JFK, and nearly a third. I had run in 4″ comfortable heels with these 3 carry-on bags, my sheepskin and my guitar up and down escalators and across JFK, to the very end, Gate 3.
I had slept a total of 4 hours in 3 days, and found myself, irrepressibly grateful, wandering my mind during the long flights; 5 + 5 + 7 + 1 = 18 hours of long flights across the world, smiling at all the sweet friends’ faces who linger there, reminding me it took the whole village to get me here, to make me clear, to lift my wings for this flight, finding myself steadily eager to feel Scotland again.
