… a word I have been contemplating, what does it actually mean to just ‘be’? I began asking people what they felt ‘being’ was. There was mostly a lot of ‘well that’s a big question…’, un-answering, until a beautiful woman called Maria came into our shop. We got to talking, as often happens in The Honeyclock, and she spoke about how we take our ‘beings’ with us where ever we go and how do we allow our being to be…. in what ever situation we are in right now. So, now I am contemplating further…

For children dolls can represent many different experiences in life, from scared or happy to Mother or Father. They can be an opportunity to safely explore many parts of the world that surround them, inside and out. Our dolls are made from natural materials (cotton & wool) and so they are soft like us.
See our new DOLL page
(under products) for the beautiful handmade dolls we stock in our shop.

With all this beautiful rain, watched over by sunshine, something to float in puddles is just what every child (big or small) needs. We have lots in stock, from self propelled, rolling & rocking, balloon powered or choose one of my favourites, our boat & docking station ($32.80). If you are living somewhere without puddles then all these boats are excellent in the bath tub, swimming pool or on a calm day, in the ocean, river or lakes.
hanging birds and their houses
Birds are all around us, singing, nesting, feeding, enjoying the sun and the rain. They’ve also entered our shop and we love them so much we thought we’d create a web page just for them, now you can enjoy them all the time – check it out- Gifts – Bird Houses and Birds

“Stumbling through life, gazing at the stars, we can miss the greatest treasure beneath our feet. For the ordinary faculties of our soul – how we think, how we feel, how we act – are the rough & fallen forms of our highest spiritual capacities”*. The teacher and seer, Rudolf Steiner, talked of 6 simple exercises, which take just a few minutes of each day, and are power tools for personal growth and inner strengthening. I have been practicing these exercises over many years and every time I consciously set my being to incorporate them into my day I feel the breadth of my inner world widen allowing me a clarity that reflects inwardly & outwardly. We have four books on these exercises in our shop -
Enlivening the Chakra of the Heart by Florin Lowndes
Raising the Soul by Warren Lee Cohen
Stairway of Surprise by Michael Lipson
$23 a collection of Dr Steiner’s statements on the exercises
“These exercises are simple, but demanding. By strengthening our capacity to pay attention, they allow us to say the right word & have the fresh thought just when we need to. They gradually lead us out of the mire of distraction & confusion, & allow us to practice what we need most: continual presence of mind.”*
