Going through loss, pain, grief and a host of other confronting and turbulent emotions over the past few years, I have reflected on this quote often. There are time in life we feel lost, confused and disconnected, fromContinue reading “The Journey of Coming Home to Yourself”

Woman Unchained- I am already Free

There’s been so much talk about freedom of late. A “Freedom Day”, something so foreign to me in a supposedly free and democratic society. We have been in and out of lockdowns, unable to see loved ones or partake in life’s usual activities, since the start of this Pandemic. And what these lockdowns have shownContinue reading “Woman Unchained- I am already Free”

Our Three Brains- Why they need to be in sync..

As many of you may know, we have three brains. Our head brain, heart brain and gut brain.

Many years later, having survived, he was out to dinner when approached by a man who recognised him. Startled he askedContinue reading “Who Packs Your Parachute?”

While the world continues to spin around crazily and here in Australia we move from one covid clusterfuck to another, I think it’s a timely reminder that we should all have a solid self-care routine in place. Everyone will have their own things they like to do, but the important thing is, that we doContinue reading “20 Self Care Tips for Holistic Wellbeing”

This Untranslatable Word Teaches us Everything about Life.

Stumbled across this piece by a fellow writer on Elephant Journal recently and it really captures such a beautiful essence. More than a word it’s a feeling. “Saudade”. Written By: Nicole Baptista As a language lover and teacher, I have always been fascinated by words that have no direct equivalents in other languages.
