Standing at the edge of the known world

Standing at the edge of the known world

I’ve recently returned from two short trips abroad. The first to England to visit my mother with two of my sons, and celebrate meeting up with a dear friend in London. The second was a 5-Day Intensive Training to close our Integral Facilitation Certificate Program* in southern Portugal.

It was strange to travel again, the first time I was double checking tickets, passport and money and overthinking what to pack. The second time felt much more familiar, I remembered how to do this!

What would it be like if you focused less on ‘doing’ and eased more into ‘being’?

This is my favourite time in spring, when the first tentative buds have given way to an explosion of colour, vibrant rhododendrons, wisteria, trees cascading with lime green leaves and the lilacs are just beginning to unfurl. Some of these blooms are just here for a short time so there impact is all the more noticeable – they invite us to pause, to pay attention, to appreciate the beauty that comes from being in the moment.

Yet perhaps you may be feeling a little stuck, uneasy, lacking sleep or finding energy levels are low. Spring has a way of shaking things up and with all that is going on in the world around us, it can feel challenging.

How can we live into our potential when we’re feeling uncertain or overwhelmed?

The question is like a lantern.

The question is like a lantern.

Every now and then I come across a piece of writing, a poem or a quote that stops me in my tracks, inviting me to pause, take a breath and reflect for a moment or two.

Several years ago, I was studying the inner landscape of meditation. My teacher would encourage us to write down on a post-it note a new thought, word or phrase that caught our attention during the teachings and pop it on the fridge for a week.

That way every time we would go to the fridge, it would catch our attention. We didn’t have to make sense of it or figure anything out, it was just a gentle way to open our awareness, a place for the words to land.

What Is Wanting to Emerge in 2022?

What Is Wanting to Emerge in 2022?

I hope you are well and safe! If not newly restored then finding your feet, settling into this New Year as you take in the external landscape around you as well as the internal landscape within yourself.

Do you have a sense of ground beneath you? Does it feel steady and smooth or shaky and bumpy? Do you visualize stepping stones beneath your feet, thick deep snow or perhaps shifting sand? Whatever life terrain you find yourself on, may your next steps be surefooted.

Over the last few years, it has become a practice for me not to rush into January with all guns blazing. In the past, one little hiccup regarding New Year resolutions and I’d stumble, lose traction, feel guilty and give up.

These days, I prefer to focus on…

A Helpful Resource for the Holiday Season

A Helpful Resource for the Holiday Season

As I write this there is a thin blanket of snow dusting the branches of the trees and bushes outside my window. The sky is greyish white and the snow has almost stopped. There’s a special kind of stillness in the air, encouraging me to pause and step away from the bustling activity that surrounds this time of year.

While nature does what it knows best, quietly retreating, conserving and replenishing energy through the colder months, our tendency is to do the opposite as we strive to prepare for festive celebrations and wrap up the end of the year. Often our intention may not quite fit our actual experience and our need for space and time to care for ourselves is hard to find.

I’d like to share a simple, highly effective practice and helpful resource that came my way recently…
