Writing from the heart

A couple of weeks ago, I felt the need to escape my planned work day and get into the bush. I had been back from a yoga therapy training module for a few days and was having trouble settling back into the regular routine!

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.
