Happy World Oceans Day! (Whenever you're reading this - every day can be oceans day) Last year I shared a meditation that I created after tapping on my distress at what is happening to the ocean. You can read about it and listen to the meditation here, it's just over [...]

Striving Do you feel like you push and push and push and MAKE things happen? This is more or less how we're taught to create success in our society after all, and it's ingrained from a young age. It's also how most of our workplaces and projects are set up, [...]

Today is Valentines day, and it's the first one in my 34 years that I've actually had a boyfriend. Crazy huh! Not that either of us are into the whole thing. I'm definitely not expecting chocolates. But I know the pain of feeling alone, and even if you try not [...]

  When you read the words 'what can I do', how do they sound in your head? Is the emphasis on the 'what' and the 'I' with the result being a statement of dejected hopelessness? Or is the emphasis on the 'can' and the 'do'? Can do. YES. The result [...]

Guts: a noun meaning entrails but also a verb meaning courage. Not a coincidence. Last week I wrote about the physiological impact of stress on our gut, and of our gut health on our stress resilience. So important! There's more to this story, as the gut is related to a [...]

  Last week I wrote about the connection between the gut and the brain, and how all kinds of unpleasant malarkey can go on up there when our tummies are out of whack. I didn't even mention that 90% of the serotonin in our bodies is actually in out gut! [...]

  We are half way through winter. How are you feeling? Do you get the winter blues, or is it your favourite time of year? Consciously connecting with the seasons of where you live is a wonderful, intimate way to experience Nature. As Earth Warriors this feeling of Nature within [...]

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about a particular tree I love to talk to for advice, and when I asked what to pass on to you dear Earth Warrior what popped into my head was "you are enough. You are being enough, you are doing enough, you are [...]

  We carry a lot of emotional baggage right, including our feelings around the damage of the planet's life-supporting systems. Early this year an image came through my Facebook feed and it triggered deep despair. It was about the Fukushima radiation harming marine life. This thing just added to all [...]

Happy World Environment Day! Today we join minds across the planet to celebrate the natural world. Which is everything isn't it. 'The environment' as a word or a term has been one of my bug bears for quite a while, mostly because to me in its populist use it invokes [...]

  Have you ever asked a tree what it thinks of the world? I like to take a short walk each day to get some fresh air, and there's one particular tree I always stop and chat to. Literally. I say 'hello tree how are you today, it's nice to [...]

  On my personal timeline of things-falling-apart-and-coming-back-together-again one of my first physical symptoms was a really itchy rash on my neck that just wouldn't shift. Even before my holistic health journey I knew that it wasn't being caused by lack of steroid cream, so instead of seeing a doctor I [...]

I experienced a miracle last week. A miracle is a shift in perception. I had something on at work that I wanted to be at the top of my game for. A meeting bringing together many different parties to discuss a new strategy. As the facilitator I wanted to make [...]

Are you like me and you push, push, push to get stuff done and be where you think you ought to be? This one is for you. And for me, next week when I need a reminder. Theme for a week ‘Allowing’ (in the context of how I feel, not [...]

One of my (many) new year’s resolutions is to start this blog. I had one false start last year, and I kept getting excited and having things to say but then just not doing it. Sound familiar? We do this for so many things so often, especially when they’re that [...]

Have you ever done a diet for healing? It was almost exactly one year ago that I first embarked on the Donna Gates' Body Ecology Diet. If you're not familiar with it, it's a set of seven dietary principles which are designed to help you combat a candida infection and [...]
