There’s a magical tree down at Martinsell and at this time of year it grows diamonds. The diamonds can not be seen by just anyone, to most people they are invisible. Only the initiates can see. To the uninitiated, there is nothing to see, it is just a damp tree, just a grey tree on a grey day. But, to those in the know, the truly initiated, it’s different. They can see without words, they can look without concepts, and experience without criticism. They bring no past conditioning and no judgment into the moment, so they can really see. They see what is there, rather than what they think is there, their minds to not filter out the diamonds so they are plain to see.

When the initiates see, they see with a quiet mind and when they give the tree their full attention without mental distraction, then that attention brings the tree to life. And in that moment the damp grey tree, comes alive and it’s diamond chandeliers reveal themselves and they sparkle in the glory of your attention. My job is to show you the diamonds, and once you can see the diamonds, you’ll be able to see the sapphires the rubies and a myriad of shiny things wherever you look.

" Staying at Martinsell in the eye of my sudden hurricane helped me to shape an understanding which sustains me every day. I return to Nicola's words and to the space I discovered in her care and I am unfailingly encouraged and strengthened in my intention to move surely into the centre of my own life and happiness. There's a lovely backbeat to Martinsell: it's a special place." ~ Peter Jennison
