Tam Lin, Halloween and the Ritual of Transformation

In Elfish land to dwell,

Releasing Your Pain: How Amanae Works

Releasing Your Pain: How Amanae Works: "I feel so much love flowing around in me, I'm buzzing! There is also a stillness, a deep sense of calm that is the cause of the flowing and the buzzing.
It matters little to me which area released what; I'm just glad it did. It felt right and good (effective)."
