River of Words & Images by Azul-Valérie Thomé

Welcome to a new River of Words & Images
from SOULand and Azul-Valérie Thomé

Warm greetings from beautiful crispy cold Totnes in Devon, England.
The last two months of SOULand happened underground in the Soil of Soul and Death. I have had the honour and privilege to accompany my mother to her death. It was a rough tempering and surely maturing soul journey woven with grief, creativity and true mystery. It is an apprenticeship with death and the
3 SOULand thresholds of Death.

Why wait for an obituary to say thank you...
​There are so many women who my gratitude warmly meets. I will choose the 13 who appear immediately and with whom I have travelled for a while.

Thank you dear 13 for the Home Coming and Initiations (some rough ones)  you all offered in your unique ways through your vulnerability,  strength, truth, kindness, words, prayers, challenges, imagination, ceremonies, courage, rough weathers, trust, vision, wisdom, enwilding, walking sticks, soul voice, connections and beauty....
My Blog post: HERE 
Our Totnes Life Cairn is been offered an astonishingly beautiful site for 2018 on Sharpham Estate by our river Dart.  
See More details of how to get involved on FB HERE or SOULand website
I am working on my first ever CROWD FUNDING to support the SOULand vision, it's 2018 Pilgrimage and the BOOK that longs to be written collecting the work of the last few years.  A BOOK that will also weave stories of the deep conversations and relationships among Women, Waters and Soul.  A BOOK that will inform how to create the first SOULand Hospital/ Sanctuary by a Water Mill ( Looking actively for one if you happen to have one)...
If you feel moved and know others who could be moved to support and intertwined themselves in SOULand then you will be delighted to see the next Newsletter with the CROWDFUNDING SITE.  Deep gratitude. 

WATER has an important message...

 WATER has an important message for Humanity ~ One of the most needed awakening today is the one that births back to our Animist Self.
WATER has an important message for humanity, according to Azul-Valerie Thome, animist and founder of SOULand: Making the World of our Longing One Maturing Soul at a Time...
Animist is the world’s oldest known belief system, predating even paganism. It is the belief that objects, places and creatures all possess a distinct spiritual essence. Azul told Reconnect that water has been speaking to her for the last two years. She said:
“It is time for me to take a leap of faith and share one of water’s messages with you. Because nothing else matters more to me right now than giving voice to something other than humans. This is an excerpt of the message…
“All of us; soil, water, plants, air, animals and all ancestors are calling you humans, to us... so we can save your species. We know and have known for a while that you do not have much time left if you do not wake up to your birthright belonging to earth and come home soon, real, real soon. We keep dying, we keep giving away our lives to shake you up from a deep and very long amnesia. Once you can allow the truth and quality of such love to permeate through your traumatised being and desolate soul you will wake up from a life time of anaesthesia to your immense grief and capacity for love.”
The full message is available at:  
with responses from 
Jon Young, Francis WellerPat Mc Cabe, Manda Scott and others 

Azul admits to being “shattered” by the messages, filled with “spiralling loneliness” and of fearing the reaction of others. Despite this, she feels compelled to speak out, saying: “There is something emerging in our dying world that deserves to be courted and longed context and tribes are forming... can you hear them? I know that I am not alone listening to our new world with  a living imagination and longing soul.”

Azul is inviting people who share her beliefs and sensitivities to stay in touch and share their stories. She is also offering to act an animist mentor. For more information email: or +44 (0)
