The depths of stillness
After Claudia's previous book Travelling like clouds, about her nomadic soul journey, in this new book she takes us on a journey through The depths of stillness. Written through the pandemic, in this threshold of humankind and the planet, making sanctuary on the edge of the island, in deep connection with the land and the more than human, Claudia explores themes such as healing, empathy, self care, sensitivity, intuition, wisdom, soul, shadow work, collective trauma, eco-psychology, deep ecology and the feminine, while she plants the garden of the soul and receives new gifts as a healer and an Earth guardian. 300 pages.

"Following the pace of the plants and supporting their growth, I became intimate with the language and soul of this land. Intimacy with the natural world and the more than human, expands the heart. It is a relationship that is both subtle and powerful, with a rare quality of reciprocity and depth.
In a book by Robert Johnson, I read this, and everything fell into place: "Feminine wounds are almost always cured by being still. Any woman who exercises her feminine genius of stillness will find her way to the garden, the most feminine of all symbols, the centre of her being." Then, I understood more completely the healing powers of this stillness, the way I planted in circles, and how I was beginning to occupy the centre of my being."

Travelling like clouds, like the wandering Taoist monks, Claudia went on a soul journey, living a nomadic life, like a modern pilgrim, staying in the liminal zone, embodying the in between space, asking questions by living them. She lived in cities, in the countryside, by the sea, in a forest of cork trees, she made a film on solar panels while living in wilderness, she cared for women with Alzheimer's and dying, practicing compassion in action, while aligning with Soul, and listening to Earth, water, drought and wind. The book is partly memoir, partly travel writing, and explores themes such as uncertainty, loss, simplicity, living in wilderness, Nature connection, healing, energy, and trauma, with depth, to inspire other souls. It follows Claudia's inner and outer journeys, questioning how - as a Wanderer, an artist, an Earth protector and healer - she can bring her gifts, wisdom and resilience into the world to help co-create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.
