Articles & Art

  I was deeply moved by “The Essential Woman” and felt someone had expressed my own feelings and heard my voice… Thank you!…

C... Australia


I was gently inspired and encouraged by what you wrote… I am amazed at the thoughts you express… While I feel the essence of what you say I only wish that my total being would resonate continually with the truth that is expressed… Thank you for the way you both write and illustrate such magical and mystical truth… May this long lost beautiful magic of true femaleness be embraced by us all… I just want to encourage and bless you in your calling…

Richard... Australia

  It was at 2.30am. this morning that I read your article “Deeper Passions”… How inspiring!… This is the best exposition on woman I’ve come across, what woman is all about… Thank you is all I can really say and I mean it profoundly… Those men who read this article would feel the same gratitude as it explains the feminine within them, what they are actually trying to reach within themselves but are unable to bring to consciousness or articulate… Again, profoundly, thank you!…

Michael... Australia

  I was impressed by your article, “The Spiritual Purpose of Menopause”… I felt that your portrayal was informative, sensitive and very true… This is what actually happens to a woman at this time… Having just come out the other side of menopause I can now look back as I read and identify with everything there… Thank you for this brilliant article!…

Liz... Australia

  I felt I needed to say how much I received from your writings… The articles on woman and menopause were so beautifully written and touched me deeply… They were very informative and so skillfully constructed… The article on anorexia filled a hole for me… In my teens I suffered from anorexia… After reading what you wrote I understood more thoroughly what I had experienced at that time… It was so beneficial I cannot but hope that your writings are read widespread…

Amanda... Australia

  I just wanted to say that I love your article… Being a wild woman, I know you know this but, you are truly beautiful!…

Alicia... Australia

  I read your article… What can I say?… Other than I understand… It simply is… Thank you!…

Leila... New Zealand

  I have to tell you how much I enjoyed your article on the Winter Solstice… It was great, so full of emotion and feeling… I thank you for that…

Annette... New Zealand
 

  Your "Wildness of the Female Spirit" is a sheer reading pleasure... It is marked by profundity, clarity, and poetic beauty...

Joseph... U.S.A.

  I just finished reading and enjoying your article and the information on your other writings that followed it...

Giselle... U.S.A.

 I have just come across two of your articles... I just wanted you to know that once again, I HEAR YOU, SISTER!... Your writing deeply resonates with me, I will print your words, so that I can read them in bed at night... It inspires me and fills me with hope to think of Women who Know all over the world expressing their truths... May all go well with you, may you prosper and be happy… …

Kate... United Kingdom

  The Way of the Goddess (Ritual of Love) was inspiring and beautifully written... Thank you so much!

Jade... U.S.A.

  I just wanted to comment on your lovely, powerful article that captures the "sacred feminine" so beautifully… Thanks for your writing and art…

Suzanne... U.S.A.

  Thank you for your work… Both your words and your artwork really speak to me... It’s really lovely... I feel the same things you speak to - I have found the same in my life experience too... I hope to see more of your work!...

Courtni... U.S.A.

  Thank you for sharing your words with us all... This evening I had the urge to leave the house and be outside with the natural world… I snuggled with a blanket and let myself be supported by the earth... I feel very blessed to be a daughter of the earth... Reading your words tonight made me realize even more how precious this is...

Vanessa... U.S.A.

  I suppose you have heard this 100 times, now make it 101!... I loved your Glorious Gaia article!!!

Teressa... U.S.A.

  You are a great writer…The "Woman Wildness" article is beautifully stirring and will remind many women of who they really are... My inner writer has been stirred by you... Thank you so much…

Philip... New Zealand 

  The article that Sophie wrote on anorexia is, for me, the best article that I have ever read on this condition (speaking as a former anorexic)… She seems to understand anorexia and all of its insidious complexities better than anyone I have ever researched or spoken with...

Romana... Australia

  I am gaining so much pleasure from your incredibly lovely sea painting... It is stunning... It lightens my heart as I look at it every day on my dressing table...

Margaret...  Australia

 Thank you Roslyne Sophia for always reflecting such love, beauty and knowledge to me... You are a true angel in my life...

Sharon...  Australia

  Sometimes it seems as though loving the goddess within, the female principle, the earth and nature, is my secret to contain and honour as best I can... Sophie's art rejoices in and expresses the goddess in all her sweet nature and dynamic power so that I see, recognise and no longer hide that deep and joyful reality...

Naomi... Australia

  I just finished reading and enjoying your article, and the information on your other writing, that followed it… I have overcome this disabling disease of anorexia but am still trying to understand why I succumbed to it… I look forward to reading more of your insightful articles in the future…

G.O.

  I want to thank you for writing such an insightful expose of the insidious and extremely complex nature of anorexia… Your article has had a huge impact on me as a recovered anorexic… Although I “re-entered” the world nearly seventeen years ago I was never able to look back and try and understand my anorexia… Your words appeared at just the right time (ah, the magic of life!) and helped to catapult me to a higher place of understanding this illness, which was for me a way of non-life for seven years… I must thank you again for your magnificent intelligent article on anorexia… I look forward to reading your future pieces… Your writing is very powerful and I know that your words can help others, as they did me, to shift to another understanding of anorexia or any other topic your insight may penetrate!…

Romana... Australia

I’ve just read your article, “Lessons of Love” and feel so moved to tell you how wonderful and powerful it is… Such wise words, so strong, so direct from the heart!… I only pray many people read it and take it deep into their hearts too…

Louisa... Australia

 Your work is so beautifully and comprehensively written, so clear and full of beauty and intelligence… You speak the truth behind menopause, never spoken in the western world… Your writing is profoundly researched… It is the child of myth, the eternal child… You MUST write your other pieces… You MUST write… Who listens is up to God as you make it available to the people… My daughter read the article on anorexia and found it EXCELLENT You link words with such perception, insight and vitality… You write from such a depth of experience and from such a profound source… The awakened knowledge of your original connection to God or life saying things in a language acceptable to the people of these times will never cease to be unveiled or revealed for you… No beginning and no end, simply being… Thank you for your insightful articles… They are entering the world psyche and mine…

Carolyn... U.S.A.

  Thank you for your lovely description of the truth of art… It is lovely to see that expression demonstrated through your paintings… It’s amazing, the creativity that is coming from you at the moment… Seeing all the different aspects of woman has been making it more conscious in me… I am finding that I have a real resonance with your paintings and that I connect with the reality and inspiration behind them… They come from such a real and beautiful place… “Sisters” is a lovely painting and I have just seen “Woman of Rebirth”… What a beautiful powerful painting!…

Joshua... Australia

  Sophie Breillat is a wise and wonderful woman who lives her life fully and in a way that touches others beautifully… Her images and her words are inspiring, her creative juices flowing… Her paintings celebrate womankind, life, beauty, aliveness, the power of stillness and the earth… Her images are vibrant and colourful and stay in your mind’s eye as inner treasure, whispering of possibilities and flowering… Whether you spend time with Sophie herself, or with her paintings, articles, poetry or stories, you will be touched by sweet beauty... She is a woman who walks her wise talk and whose talk inspires woman to live in truth as the love that she is... As I reflect on my meeting with her, it seems as if I spent time with Mother Nature herself... I softened inside and became more aware of life's immediate blessings... The clouds forming in the sky, the call of the birds, the perfection of the flower right before my eyes...

Shana... Australia

  I often have flashes of you and your paintings… And both are inspirational… I am your Tree Goddess… The image of the gold from her hands always inspires me to give even more…

Shana... Australia

  I came across an illustration of yours in a magazine, these beautiful pink and purple flowers… I really like it a lot!… Where can I see more of your paintings?… Many thanks!…

Helen... Australia

  Life moves on… It’s all in your paintings… The heady moist still jungle, the wind-blessed trees, the stalk life of the arid dunes, the palms or fronds of remembrance…

Barry... Australia

  May I congratulate you on your simply superb article!… Each word lured me further into a grieving soul, she is the feminine, and so wonderful… Full of wisdom, beauty, mysterious and magical… Will she ever be heard and acknowledged for the wonder that she is?… I identified with everything you said for you resonated with the grief existing within me… It is so relieving to know there is another soul around who knows the beauty of her feminine essence!… You have been such a comfort, reinforcing my shattered hope that she will not be strangled forever!… The more we know of our feminine essence and choose to honour her, the more truly masculine will our men be as you so aptly said, they shall be freed to be… Thank you again for speaking out and for being what you clearly are, a real woman…

J.B.... Australia

  I have just read your article about the essence of woman… I was really touched by your words, they were like an echo to what I sense…

Sophie C.... Australia

  I was astounded to finally read an article where someone truly understands the depth of harm women can inflict on themselves through food in your article, “The Food of Love”… Could you please tell me if you have a practice as I feel I’ve found my next guide?…

Beth... Australia

Thank you for this beautiful article… I witness absolutely (abSOULutely!) what you have written…

Kate... United Kingdom

  I just read your piece in Wise Woman… I LOVED IT!… I have always felt this way, but lately, I too, have become a victim of time and society and I NEEDED to read your piece today… I needed to be reminded of my beliefs, I needed to be reminded that this is where my heart, my center lies and this is where I need to go to find it again… Thank you for writing it and thank you Goddess for putting this beautiful work of art into my path this morning… This praise is much earned and deserved!… Please keep writing and know that your work is very inspiring… I look forward to reading more of it…

M.B.... U.S.A.

  I was just reading your beautiful articles... Your writings are inspiring me to trust that the deep river within me is beautiful and has so much within it to nourish my life and to share with others...

Chris... United Kingdom

  Thank you so very much for your words of wisdom... What a help to know what I am experiencing, without my mother's guidance is normal... The grieving, the lost dreams, hope of new ones, the recovery/discovery of long forgotten dreams!... I am thrilled you are writing a book... I love your encouraging voice... Thank you!...

Chris... U.S.A

Astrology

  Deep inside her, every mother knows who her child is and what it needs in this life… However, we doubt that knowing of the wisdom within… Having Sophie read our little boy’s chart was like a wind fanning that inner knowledge into full life… Everything that I innately knew was confirmed… The accuracy, wisdom and depth were astounding… It was a mirror showing me how much I knew inside, confirming that every mother truly knows her child if she looks within for answers rather than to the outer world… It was such a gift to spend the evening with Sophie, a time of deep reflection and devotion to our son, honouring his individuality and uniqueness… It is so important to honour each child’s unique expression in this life, and it is all written in the stars…

Oonagh... New Zealand

  A good friend who was at my son’s birth had Sophie create his chart as a present for us... It was such a wonderful gift reading about his stars, especially at a time when he was so new and we were getting to know him... His chart really helps to give understanding of his little nature, which is already so evident… I’m so glad that we had it done!…

Georgie... Australia

  Sophie did our son’s astrology when he was one year old… It was a very enlightening experience... Having begun to see his individual character emerge, it was very clarifying to see his complete astrological profile… Each aspect is a piece of a puzzle that seems to perfectly fit together… Having such a “picture” of our child helps us to really understand him and has truly given us an amazing insight into who he is…

Miriam... Ireland

 In times of change and in times of reflection an astrology reading acts as a catalyst to my understanding and acceptance of my life... Sophie's gentle presence, insight, experience and listening skills direct me toward the cosmic, awesome realities shaping my living life and destiny... Thank you Sophie, I can't wait for more!...

Naomi...  Australia

 Sophie is a font of wisdom and peace... Both Rob and I have had astrology readings with her and her insights and perceptions are not only "spot on" but so revelatory that we have felt a door open to understanding our own selves, our own journey and the events and patterns influencing our lives... We have found real value in having a session with Sophie...

Rob & Romana...  Australia

   Much gratitude from me and my family in Norway!… Recently we received astrological readings embracing three generations!… Your depth of perception and ability to express this beautifully in writing is simply amazing… It was all presented in lovely colour and with stunning artworks illustrating the Sun signs… It was written with love, care and respect from a place of integrity of heart… This is sacred art, a key to assist in unlocking the mysteries of being, bringing together a deeper connection and knowledge of the inner life and its external manifestations…. It acts as a continuous source of reference, support and inspiration, a perfect tool on the journey of self-discovery…

Mette...  Australia

  I feel like I am emerging from a cocoon into this next phase of life and feel so blessed to have had gentle words of encouragement and support from you through the “Being Woman” Course at W.W.U.... You have inspired me to continue my quest.. Thanks so much!...

Michelle... Canada

  As a woman entering menopause, I felt tremendous relief when I found Sophia’s course, “Dawning of Wisdom”... As I moved through the course, I felt like I’d found a wise mentor to lead me through this time of heightened emotion and sensation... It was as if Sophia took me under her wing and gently guided me through the underlying currents of my changing body and emotions... I have referred back to both Sophia’s writings and my own during this life-changing course many times now... I continue to glean gems of insight and wisdom... I highly recommend this beautifully thought-through course to all women coming into their time of change... Thank you, Sophia, for your role as wisdom keeper, confidante and mentor...

Shonagh... U.S.A.

  I love your writing, it always seems so timely and causes a big “yes!” to spring from my heart... I am menopausal myself, so I shall await your book eagerly...

Kate... United Kingdom

  Your work is magical! Thank you very much for sharing it with the world... Good luck with your book...

Veronica... U.S.A.

  Thank you for your inspiring menopause words...

Clio... United Kingdom

  Thank you for creating and sharing your words with “Heart Mother Crone”... This morning I woke with the familiar and now comfortable sense of everything changing and strangely, not wanting or needing to do anything about it... You cleared the way for me this morning and the thirty women I shared this with...

Francesca... U.S.A.

  I want to thank you for such a beautiful expression of the significance of this rite of passage, and a deeper understanding of the grief and depression so often associated with it... I’ve sent it to many women who I’m sure will be inspired by it... I feel a very close kinship to your work and vision!...
