Why Losing Belief Isn’t Always Bad

I want to talk about belief, and the loss of belief, because I think that this can be one of the scariest and most difficult things to endure. Beliefs, whether secular, religious, New Age or whatever, are the corner stone of our conscious lives.  They inform our thoughts, actions, interactions and our choices.  They can…

Here’s to the Adventure!

I’ve been doing so much reflecting lately trying to figure out what changes I need to make in my life to align it truthfully with my soul, but it hasn’t really helped. More than anything I feel that my wheels are just spinning but not getting anywhere. When we aren’t happy with something we want…

Love. Romance. What’s it all about?

Love. Romance.  I’m definitely not an expert in either, and I have definitely spent far too much of my life hiding behind idealism and romantic fantasy. It could never be as good as it is in my head so why bother, right? Wrong! I am choosey, but not in a shallow way.  I only want…

Letting Go of the Outcome

Releasing attachment to the outcome is a concept that, for a while, I found it difficult to wrap my mind around.  How can you be focused and motivated about your goals or your desires and not be attached to the result? How can you practice visualisation and manifestation and not want the exact thing you…

An Ode to Wild Woman

An Ode to Wild Woman (on Wrekin hill). Wandering the wild took her closer to home; it allowed her to find more than she’d ever known. As the wind swept on by she started to see more than views on high, she saw what she could be. Wild and free. Wild and free. Her feet…

End of Year Thoughts

I can’t believe that we’re coming to the end of another year.  This post-Christmas, pre-New Year time is a veritable cocktail of emotions as we look at what has been and think about what there could be to come.  I myself feel a mixture of pride for what I achieved, lamentations for what didn’t work…

The Importance of Getting Lost

I went to a riveting panel discussion recently regarding our relationship with Nature.  We’re not talking about gardens here, or pleasure walks at the local National Trust: we’re talking about wild, non-cultivated, unencumbered, there-might-be-a-bear-in-the-woods Nature.  One of the speakers, Nina Lyon, made a comment about our inability to get truly lost in our home country…

Adjusting to life back in an office!

So, as those of you who have been following me for a while know, I spent the first part of this year travelling around New Zealand.  What a FANTASTIC way to kick the year off with new experiences, adventures, new friends, new levels of confidence and a deeper understanding of myself. But, as we are…

New Zealand: South Island Highlights

As many of you will know, earlier this year I spent a few months travelling solo around New Zealand.  What a powerful way to kick-start the year, and a very deep and personal inner journey too! That inner journey is still ongoing and very raw, and though I have already shared some of that with…

An Interview With Jen Hawkins of Revive

I first met Jen when I attended one of her seasonal gathering workshops last Autumn and was quickly won over by her kind and loving personality, her knowledge, and her gentle style of teaching (read my post about the gathering here).  She has a deep passion for her aromatherapy craft, and for helping people achieve balance and…
