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…

An interview with the T-Rex Runner, Danielle Cemprola.

I met Danielle in Auckland earlier this year when she asked me if I wanted to join her and her friends on a hike up Mt Eden.  I was quickly drawn in by how warm and friendly she is, and was massively impressed by her love for running marathons, fitness, hiking and exploring – a personal journey that…

Book Review: Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

This book provoked a lot of reflection in me, not least because I was reading it whilst also on my own soulful adventure. It covers Liz Gilbert’s journey to heal her emotional pain and depression, discovering new and wonderful things about herself, finding friendships and love in the process, as she spends a year living and travelling around…

Lots of sunshine and no rules!

I’m sitting in the sunny garden of the Auckland hostel where I am staying. It is a beautiful day – hot, yet peaceful. A few other travellers chat softly in the garden, which backs onto Western Park with its lovely expanse of trees and greenery.  I’m contemplating my next moves: decisions which have caused me more…

Book Review: ‘Wild’ by Cheryl Strayed

I was already intrigued about reading Cheryl Strayed’s memoir of walking the Pacific Crest Trail as a solo female hiker when I saw that Lit Without Limits, a non-profit organisation supporting the empowerment of girls through literature, had chosen it as their July read.  As a woman who loves hiking, strong women and literature, I thought…

Book Review: ‘Mastering Your Mean Girl’ by Melissa Ambrosini

I have read (and still am reading) lots of inspirational and self-love books, but so far Mastering Your Mean Girl has been the cherry on the icing.  Melissa Ambrosini’s book is, as she fully intended, bursting with love and wisdom.  Her motivating force is love and that really came through on single every page, in turn firing up…

What is ‘Success’?

No matter what anyone says, I don’t believe there is one definition of ‘success’.  Success looks and feels like different things to different people. I was reading a book the other day and it asked me to consider my definition of success. I thought about it for a few moments and then one word came into my mind:…
