    When you look inside what do you find?  Some days it’s beautiful and you feel elated to be alive.  Other days it’s painful and you want to look away.  Why does the inner landscape change?  Because everything changes. Every moment of every day everything is moving and changing. So if today you’re finding pain or emptiness, stay with it. It’s beautiful in its own right and has something to share with you. Don’t turn away. Sink deeper and as you…

    Embracing the Feminine in our Yoga Practice

    “It is important to restore the essential balance in the world between the masculine and feminine energies.

    The serene power of finding your flow

    Well for starters, NO ONE wants a meaningless, stressful, unsatisfying life. Actually I’ll caveat that – some people rather like to have something to justifiably whinge about… heck we all enjoy it sometimes (if we’re honest ;). But a long haul soiree of this experience sucks arse and probably delivers you somewhere in the vicinity of ‘my life is over’, ‘please God take me now’, ‘why oh why oh WHY MEEEEEEEEEE’.

    Why has your (very good) business hit a rut?

Something is stuck.  It’s not moving.  Cue the feeling of swimming against the stream, head banging against the wall and tumbles of hay drifting past as you watch with frustration.

    How to spot who’s sucking you dry (and who will add something to your life)

     “WHO pulled the wind out my sails?” Right then lovelies, if this phrase resonates read on – cos I’ve got a gem of an exercise that sorts it out. To over simplfy things, there are two categories that your daily interactions fall into: those that energise (whoop whoop!) and those that draaaaaaain If there’s too much drainage life can seriously begin to suck. So let’s sort that out. With a quick and simple to do exercise (always a selling point in my…

    Why addiction is not always bad for you

    What do you do when you love something and the ‘world’ tells you ‘but you shouldn’t do that – it’s so baaaaad for you’? Do you succomb and say ‘ok, you know best‘. Or do you say ‘wait a second’  – which is a nice, polite and Buddhist bunny mindfullness alternative to the more commonly used ‘f*ck-off’  🙂  – my life, my needs, what’s actually right for me in this situ?

    Is there such a thing as a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ decision?

    How on EARTH does one make the right decision? This question opens a giant a bog-mire (if that’s even a word) of self doubt, angst and worry for most people (and yes moi is included 🙂 ) Three clients have spoken about this this week – in very different forms – and they fall into three rather classic categories – which in a flowery round about way can be described like this:
