It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a person in pursuit of personal development must be in want of a meditation practice. Meditation is the cure-all for everything. Stressed? Meditate. Tired? Meditate. Anxious? Meditate. But it is much easier said than done especially when the process of meditating can be frustrating, challenging and boring.

Over the holidays-hurrah! Rare teacher perk-I followed a ‘magic’ formula for things to do each day that have a positive impact on mind, body and spirit. Behold M-M-W-G-F.

I saw this thang on Instagram where all good inspirational quotes can be found and… Continue reading The year in review
I used to enjoy a glass (bottle) of wine on occasion (most days) but now I’m a reformed boozer and spruik soda water only. But how does one survive the party season where the days and nights are hot (or stormy) and every man and his dog are enjoying a beer and the champagne’s flowing… Continue reading High on life!
Recently I’ve been exploring how to get comfortable with the uncomfortable. After all, life isn’t always a cake walk through the forest of rainbows and if we fight it, flee it or bitch about it, it gets worser rather than betterer.
