Out now on the Cyclic Self Bandcamp 🙏

My track ‘Breo’, created as a standalone fragment of this piece, is also out today on the DOE’s ‘Lee Lines’ mixtape: https://thedepartmentofenergy.bandcamp.com/

“The third release from The Department of Energy celebrates the real and imagined links, connections, alignments and energies shared by a raft of artists working within and without the rural, the riparian and the gothic. It is a Landscape Mixtape containing strangers, islands, friends, family, Brigid, crossings, legends, language, peaks, valleys, engines, forecasts, dunes, cures, tombs, blooms, recollections and incantations.”

The launch of which can be heard here 🔥

The sixth piece in my series of Full Moon collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and human Adam Perry

In keeping with the ‘Between Two Lives/Worlds’ theme that we tuned into this month, Adam and I ended up in two different places with our pieces. Here is the message I felt to share:

As always, the Full Moon can be viewed as a spotlight, revealing our shadows so that we can engage with what needs to be transformed

“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.” Pema Chödrön

May we all have the courage to look at what is being revealed. May we all live the Truth that change comes from within. May we profoundly respect our own perspective, thoughts and values while open heartedly listening to others and respecting theirs. May we all welcome the Divine Feminine into our lives, reflecting on where the system of patriarchy has overtaken our lives and bastardised the Divine Masculine. May each of us choose to come from love, compassion and kindness on this and every day 🙏

Le grá, Laura 💚

The fifth piece in my series of Full Moon collaborations for 2020 with the wonderful artist and human Adam Perry

My contribution to our collab this month is called “What will you choose?”

Inspired by the current cycle we are in, it feels that we’ve all been here before and will be again depending on how we choose to move forward…

Our collective is made up of each individual choosing how they are going to behave in the world. This month, I feel it is vital for us all to ask within, what will you choose?!

Here is my May collaboration with @adamperryart honouring today's Full Moon 🌕 The name for this moon (there are many) that most resonates for me is the Milk Moon. It is- in the natural way of living- the time when the milk of the sheep, cows, goats etc comes in. It symbolises fertility and as the 4 Celtic festivals resonate so deeply for me, it makes sense that the names that align with the symbology of those festivals also resonate. Bealtaine is all about fertility, the return of the sun to the earth… the life-giving milk returning to the mother's breast. Being that we're talking about milk and mothering, the name Milk Moon also really puts the focus on the feminine and the life support to be found there. 🌕 Adam has made a video about his (rather epic!💫) full reading for this month, link in his bio. The message I received from the reading is the name of my track accompanying Adam's incredible artwork: "What will you choose?" 🌕 We are at a time of change- there have been many cycles like it before and there are many more like it to come… 🌕 Life does not just happen to us. Through this and every other moment of change, we get to choose our response. That is not to say the choice is easy, it's just to state there IS choice. 🌕 Be aware of where you are choosing to put your focus- be discerning in those choices. If you are feeling unhappy with the choices you've made in the past, choose differently in the now. That's the beauty of choice- rechoosing is always an option! 🌕 The beauty of being human is *we have choice*. We get to create our own individual worlds AND choose how to move through this shared one… What will you choose? 🌕 Putting the focus on relationship with the feminine within could be helpful and supportive this month. Treat yourself and your body as though you were a baby. Soothe, hold, massage…feed yourself in all ways with nurturing care. 💚 May we all choose compassion and love for self and others on this and every day 🙏

International Woman’s Day 2017

March 7, 2017 § Leave a comment

Huge numbers of women around the world are awakening to their true strength, their true power. The beautiful, unmanipulated, true Divine Feminine power that courses through every female on Mother Earth.

We female humans are noticing the many ways we’ve been held back and held down. The many ways we’ve been told to be small- to lose weight, lose body hair, lose the loud voice, lose the voice at all, keep shrinking in every way possible, to take up as little space as possible…

We see how our society has been set up to disempower us. To keep us scared of our own power- scared of even the idea of being powerful beings. Encouraging girls and women to see each other as opponents in a fight none of us signed up for. To keep us preoccupied with appearance. To keep us stuck in comparison and feeling ‘less than’. To keep us from seeing the profound beauty within and within each other, knowing we are all deeply, stunningly beautiful in our own unique way. To discourage independent thinking. Too often discouraging young girls from any kind of thinking beyond fitting into ridiculous ideas of beauty. Ridiculous ideas sold to men, women, girls and boys by companies who keep moving the marker of what’s ‘enough’, what’s ‘acceptable’, so they can keep making money off the insecurity they have bred into us all.

This society has tried to subjugate and divide us women at every turn and in some ways succeeded. But only for a time. NO MORE.

Millions of women stand today, eyes wide open. We are strong. We are fierce. We know our worth. We are awake and we are not going back to sleep.

We will continue to grow stronger and more empowered, guiding those who are looking for guidance, supporting those looking for support and coming from a compassionate space for all, ourselves first and foremost.

We are the birthers of human life. We are the daughters of Mother Earth. We are the Divine Feminine incarnate. And we are awake. We are rallying. We are united. We will no longer be silenced. We will no longer be small. We are a potent force and we will be heard.

“Organize, agitate, educate, must be our war cry”

Susan B.Anthony

“Until the women of Ireland are free, the men will not achieve emancipation”

Hanna Sheehy Skeffington

“A feminist is anyone who recognises the equality and full humanity of women and men”

Gloria Steinem

On this day, dedicated to the women of the world, I offer up huge love and gratitude to my mother and my sisters for being my learning ground as I explored what it means to ‘be a woman’ while growing up.

I thank all the women who have been and who continue to be part of my life for their encouragement, support and friendship.

I thank all the female musicians, composers and electronic artists who have done it and by doing so have made me believe I have the right to go do it too.

I am grateful to all the women who have come before me, who paved the way so I am a woman with the right to vote, who gets to speak and have recourse if I am threatened for doing so, who gets to speak up and speak out both in my music and in my everyday life, for lighting the way to empowerment.

To all the women who continue to be met with violence and threats, abuse and death all around the world: You are seen. You are not forgotten. The tide is turning. I send you love and support and hope I live to see the day violence is eradicated and equality re-established in the world.

I am sending huge support to the women and men of Ireland marching for the repeal of the eighth amendment. May women everywhere have the same human right as men and be allowed to govern and decide what is correct for their body in every situation.

Le grá agus meas,

Laura
