Cool-Headed amidst CoronaVirus

Cool-Headed amidst CoronaVirus

Dear dears,during these uncertain times (a common phrase right now, I’m sure!), I would like to be barer of pragmatism in the hope to help those in my community to be able to stay in one’s centre and personal power.  To not succumb to fear and its effects on our health; mentally, physically, socially and […]

Spring equinox

Spring equinox Equal time split between the night and the day, and being that it’s spring here in the NH, it’s also owing to the lessening of the cold and dark to make way for the sun’s growing journey which started back on December 21st with the solstice. It ought be warmer and lighter than […]

Conscious Christmas

Conscious Christmas, it’s not all about Consumerism, and no it’s not about religion too, well not for me. For me it goes back further than a couple of thousand years, billions of years actually.. Maybe it’s too late, maybe you already bought half the shops out of stock, or maybe you’ve been waiting for the […]

Sri Lanka Suprise!

Sri Lanka Suprise!

Sri Lanka Sunrise at Sri Padaya!  Beautiful! At first, I didn’t think I’d write about this. I mean, I couldn’t see where I’d done wrong, but I still had a sense of shame. It’s only after talking about it, a lot, that I realise I’ve done nothing wrong.  I’d never wore shorts or swimwear off the beach, […]

Yet Again the Yoga Practice Creeps Up On Me

Some of you will know, some won’t. I’ve been in rehab since May, it was a ‘special’ start to the year and I’m still recovering; although I think this rehab (basic rest and recovery in many facets of life) span is capturing and restoring my body, energy and such from a much deeper and older […]

2016 A Year for Clarity

2016 A Year for Clarity

Wow.  What a year..  How was your 2015 for you?.. We’re continually encouraged to grow and connect with the wider world, at least astrologically and energetically speaking..  Getting clear about what we are and what we are not; seeing more reflections of our innate values and innocent self; beyond social and familial conditioning.. Christmas can be […]

When to go to yoga Vs. When not to go to yoga

When to go to yoga Vs. When not to go to yoga

Photo on left curtousy of Miguel Echiveria, Photo right taken by C Suzuki @Froguesthouse, Lima It comes up relatively frequently for me, as a hunch, intuition or sometimes a humanistic rash judgement, without knowing someone’s full situation first (one reason I wanted to write this, to encourage people to open a dialog more before session starts); thinking someone […]

How do you know if your shaman is legit?

How do you know if your shaman is legit?

This is of prime importance.  If you decide to drink traditional medicine, it is essential to have the right administration.  This needs the right person (with the right lineage), at the right place, and with the right intention. To get the most out of it, and to keep safe, you want this to be a conscious journey from preparation on-wards. […]

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 […]
