People often ask “what do you do in mentoring sessions? Talk?”
The short and simplest answer from me is, “yeah we talk!”

To one sitting on the outer edge this might seem crazy, but there is so much more that we do through the subconscious to the conscious, but only if one is ready. Ready to drop in, take the plunge rather then dip a toe in to try the water temperature!
If you are really ready, to take the about face turn on the path and walk inwards. That’...

The journey of moving forward is never an easy one, we face fear of failure, anxieties of the unknown and just a general all round discomfort that sits directly in our gut or manipura space, But a question we might ponder is “what is left if we don’t jump, if we don’t take that step into the unfamiliar, if we don’t walk that pathway that we pass?” Perhaps one day or even now we may notice an itching under the surface, scratching at the walls of our skin fro...

I stopped for a moment. Paused. Silent. I could hear myself breathe. I could hear myself talking over and over all the conversations running through my mind, knowing what’s right, what’s wrong. Time in between. Nothing. Silence. It’s perfect! Separating mind, from body, from emotion and then there is just me, I am not of this mind, not of this body, not of this feeling but I am the thing that lives inside it all. I am everything and nothing at the same time...

Ram Das said “If you think your enlightened, go spend a week with your family”

Oh Ram Das how right you are!!! My friends I’m sure you know exactly what I mean, that good old F word! Family...

I’ve been on a pretty good ride since returning to my home for family reasons 10 weeks ago! Well we all have really, not that I ever thought I was enlightened, but loving, caring, and patient to a degree, totally, but ummmmmmmmm maybe I'm not after all. 

All relationship...

At this years 200hr Yoga Teacher Training I observed myself as we sat down to begin our first round of final exams.

I’d been up since 3am in the morning, my jaw was clenched, my armpits were sweaty and I had butterflies in my belly. Yep, you guessed it! I was nervous for the teacher trainers. As we sat down, the first teacher handed in there class plan, you could feel the excitement in the room, nervous smiles all round, and that good old vibe when everyone...

Isn’t the memory a fascinating thing... moments in time once forgotten come flooding back, as though your caught in a trance. You can touch, taste, smell, hear, and recollect everything from that specific moment marked in time...

Almost like a smorgasbord of sensory stimulation. Sometimes there good, sometimes there bad, but the most interesting and iconic part of all is that these memories are exactly what shaped you as the human you are today. Your persona...

Already the end of January in the New Year... Say what? Like most people this month I discovered that I was already strapped into the roller coaster ride that January proved itself to be before the ride had even started, the twists and turns we took to find balance, trusting in the knowing that everything is exactly as it should be, whipping through the highs and lows of re(member)ing relationships, and finally halting to a stop at the power station in the...

2.00am in the morning, jet lag has pulled my eyelids open, coffee is calling my name over and over again, my body is slow to the uptake of movement my mind is aiming for, and my intellect has taken a back seat at the movie cinema of the show called “My Life”. I’ve just landed in my hometown - Newcastle, Australia and here I find myself with the computer turned on.

I have been of the understanding that life gets easier as you get older, and so diving in head...

It’s taken a couple of months for me to get here… But finally I feel like I’m standing back on my own two feet again, The tornado that tore through my time has passed and sun is shining back in the sky. I’ve written before about balance, several times in fact, but my recent bargaining tactics failed with my old friend, and so creativity left my side as a reaction to my weakness.

People were telling me over and over, “you really need to be writing”, “write ab...

Auto control on and flying…

Around and around and around, feeling the sweeping U turns in every cell of your body, the feeling of being stuck in a holding pattern has occurred.

And so we fly in the oval shape that has been set as our course of flight for this moment in time. The mind knowing that there is a destination set, the body yearning to land but time suspends us in the moment, for how long it appears unclear.

So we settle in. We get our comfy clothes o...
