New Year Same Old BS

New Year Same Old BS

It’s been quite refreshing to see different public figures NOT talking about setting new years resolutions, but perhaps I’ve managed to miss it through my lack of engagement with the mainstream media..

What I’ve learnt on a Plant Dieta

What I’ve learnt on a Plant Dieta

Before I embarked on this adventure to diet with a plant, i.e. the drinking of a medicine produced by boiling its bark (or other part of the plant/tree depending on the medicine prescribed for you); I had no idea what I was getting myself in for. I knew there would be plant ceremonies with the […]

Meditation in Daily Life – A Space to meditate

Meditation in Daily Life –  A Space to meditate

Two things I hear quite often from people are “I haven’t got time for meditation” or “I have nowhere to meditate”. Generally the obstacle of not having anywhere to meditate is based on the person’s idea of what are essential meditation prerequisites when in reality they may have a perfectly suitable meditation space in their […]

Range Of Motion, Different for Everyone

Range Of Motion, Different for Everyone

Candle Meditation

Candle Meditation

One of the most enLightening (excuse the pun) meditations, for me, is the Candle meditation.  Couldn’t be simpler and yet neither more beautiful and effective to calm the mind and bring you into the present. Set yourself a timer, if you’re new to meditation make it 5 minutes only, if you  have more experience and feel […]

Building life a new

Building life a new

Nutrition, movement, fitness and food have been fastidious points in my life since I can remember.  How exciting it feels for me to be working with them in a more organised and structured manner!  As well as having the potential to not only further optimise my own condition, but the general health of others too!
