Prana: Mandala’s End

Here is the next AND FINAL part of Prana (Book 6 of Waldmeer). Thanks for sharing the journey!

Caution to the Wind

In Prana Community:

It was the end of the forty-day mandala which began at Mahashivratri. It was also the last day that Guru Gadubanud was at Prana Community. Most mornings, Merlyn had been travelling to Prana, from Shambhavi and Veronica’s property, to do Veronica’s yoga class (even though it wasn’t her favourite). She did it out of respect for living in their bungalow and also out of respect for Shambhavi (who was her favourite).

Prana: Infinitely Inclusive

Here is the next (and second last) part of Prana (Book 6 of Waldmeer).

Outsiders and Insiders

In the Wurt Wurt Koort Tearooms:

“Hello, Mer-Mer,” Tom called out happily as Merlyn walked into the cafe after her Waldmeer Warrior’s dance class with Shambhavi that morning. “Lover-boy isn’t here, today.”

Clearly, Rybert has told Tom that he and I are no longer a couple, thought Merlyn. Not that we ever really were.

Tom’s little Brussels Griffon, Hardy, scuffled over to Merlyn for a pat. He wasn’t supposed to be in the front of the shop but he was so delightful and so loved by all the customers that his bed, in the backroom, remained empty most of the time when they were there.

Prana: Omni-All

Here is the next part of Prana (Book 6 of Waldmeer)


In Prana Community:

“How are things going in your community house?” asked Shambhavi.

“Fine, thanks,” said Merlyn. 

She wondered why he was asking as he had never enquired about her living arrangements before.

“Do you like it there?” persisted Shambhavi.

“It’s fine,” said Merlyn, “for a single female household.”

Prana: Equinox

Here is the next section of Prana (previously Esther) Book 6 of Waldmeer.


In Prana Community:

In India, Mahashivratri immediately precedes the spring equinox which is the herald of spring. In Prana Community, Mahashivratri precedes the autumnal equinox which is the beginning of autumn. Both equinoxes have the same amount of day as night. Thus, they are a time of transition and reset.

Rybert said that the autumnal equinox or Mabon was the Witches Thanksgiving. It is the end of a year’s growth cycle, he would say. Everything changes. The trees change colour. They shed their leaves. It’s a time of general shedding. He would then add with a wink, Shedding clothes is also appropriate, but it does depend on who is doing the shedding.
