Cry Me a River, to Be the Best You Who Can Be

Cry Me a River, to Be the Best You Who Can Be

You know those times when you feel yourself welling up?  But, you’re brave and strong; perhaps you’re in public, so you hold back the tears; you think about something else or tell yourself “it doesn’t matter” or “not again, I thought I’d be over that by now”, or “cry baby, suck it up!”; and so […]

Autumn has come Early for Me this Year

Autumn has come Early for Me this Year

Autumn has come early for me this year, the summer fun has been overdone..  Yesterday I acknowledged a realisation about the disconnect between head, heart and gut. I recognise this isn’t a issue for some but also that there is a set of us whom find the art of living according to how we feel, that bit […]

Somatic Unwinding

Somatic Unwinding

So far, the experience has been profound.  I’m feeling a need on some level to do some crazy exercise to shake it all up and get back into my past default in questing for muscular strength.  However, having just received a second 1:1 hands on session of Body Mind Centering, from the lead trainer Katy […]

Letting go of stable jobs, ideals for how you saw yourself living, people, places, things..  By holding on to […]

Is it my condition? Or this world we live in?

Is it my condition? Or this world we live in?

Maybe I need to go live in a small village in Africa/India. I saw this video of Gabor Maté had been shared just after I wrote the poem below, trying to muddle through the highs and lows that seem to be concurrent with life.. Wasn’t going to post the poem because I don’t want to be judge or […]

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 […]

Listening to yourself

Listening to yourself

  Fortunately, my body is hypersensitive and thus is one which makes me listen; for which I am very grateful.  Even just the subtle signs of pimples, aches or dry skin can be your body trying to get you to listen to it as a means to help it function better. Listening to yourself could […]
