Cultivating Creativity

This week I thought I would mention an idea that has come about from this year’s Spring Retreat. We were blessed to have Kelly Fox on retreat this year who very kindly agreed to come along and not only nourish us with beautiful food but also share a session on creative writing. I like to include a creative session on my retreats as we are all born with creativity within us but often as we get older it isn’t expressed or we lose the ability to express ourselves creatively in the belief that we are not able or that it

Applying the Three Keys

A couple of weeks ago, I reflected on being half way through my year of slow living. Slow living is about becoming more aware, more conscious of the wonder of the world around us. I identified three keys to unlocking the power of our consciousness. I then brought these to the most recent Dru Soul Spa. You don’t need to nominate a year of slow living or raising consciousness. That’s an exercise – a valuable one, yes – but the real thing is to bring these ideas into your daily life. I challenge you with committing to the three keys

Inviting yoga to deepen your daily experience

I invite you to walk with the question of “Who am I?” Or, “Who am I when I let go of the emotions, beliefs, perceptions, and roles that mask my true sense of self?” We continue on our journey of awakening consciousness by coming to our practice with a sense of wonder, an awareness that each time we come to our practice, we are never in the same place as before. We are affected by so many outside influences such as our environment, the people we share our life with, and our physical state of being. We’re also shaped by

Lessons from ‘slow living’: The Three Keys

This year – 2017 – I declared as my year of “slow living”.  I announced that I was going to focus on having 52 weeks of being more connected with and enjoying the things I love: Family time Garden time Time in nature Time for creative pursuits I shared this intention publicly with many people and the reaction was how on earth was I going to do that with all I had on? Valid point, considering I am studying yoga therapy as well as natural medicine with Quantum University, plus working part time and running my business. The year started

Slow Living

Slow Living – this is my motto for this year. Since choosing to explore this theme it is amazing what I have found.  There are actually magazines on the subject and I love them. Check these out:  These are our vege pods and they work amazingly. As part of my intention to practice slow living I am growing herbs, tomatoes, spinach, lettuce and kale. So far so good as these keep out most of the bugs which I have found to be a problem trying to grow in the open ground. So there you are my first post for a

For Love of Yourself

For Love of Yourself This is the theme of our classes this term as we embrace the wintertime for going within and practicing some self loving. Whether you are in a yoga or meditation class this term, use this time to really be present and honour the time you are making for yourself.  See if you can let go of the labels, roles, tasks, demands that might be part of your life and come into the class with a sense of inner inquiry. I’ve been using this winter to reflect upon my own self care and realised that it is

Living in a high state of gratitude

This was the theme of our summer retreat which has just happened.  Here I would like to share, especially for those that were on the retreat but also to benefit anyone else who is reading this, some of the practices and research. We contemplated the statement;  Your brain takes its shape from what your mind rests upon. Knowing that where attention goes energy flows we took a few moments to ask the question, where has my mind been resting this week?  Perhaps you might like to write this question in your journal and see what spills out onto your page.

High vibrations for a year of manifesting your greatest dream

Happy New Year ! Did you know this year holds an energy that can fast track you along to realising you goals and dreams?  Well it does and to ensure that you get the best chance to do this I am encouraging you to write down your intentions for the next twelve months. It is one thing to have them in your head but quite another to put them in writing, better still if you can create a vision board or piece of artwork that represents your way forward and place this where you see it everyday. You might be
