Trusting Life’s Mystery (And, a gift for you)

Trusting Life’s Mystery (And, a gift for you)

I have news to share—

Recently, I returned from leading a retreat in Thailand and came home to the same familiar surroundings, responsibilities, and circumstances as before.

Nothing had changed and everything had changed.

As I sat with my morning practice, I felt an effortless release of control. It had been a long time coming. I was aware of my habitual way of being, my tendency when feeling uncertain to…

It’s a New Day

It’s a New Day

Outside my window, I see April playing as April does – sun and rain, blossom and snow. On my walks, there is calm beauty and turbulent winds. The light and the dark. The spectacular and the mundane.

I’m keeping this short and sweet, hoping this life message will find a way to reach you.

When I first shared this a while ago, it seemed to resonate. Due to the touching response I received at the time, I’m happy to share with you again here…

Spring Equinox: A whisper of hope and awakening. + Spring Weekend Retreat

Have you noticed? There’s an air of promise and anticipation. A whisper of hope and awakening.

We’ve arrived at the next season junction, a turning point where light triumphs over dark. Springs promises that nothing is static, no matter how never-ending a situation may seem.

A welcome reminder to embrace the process of letting go of the outcome and be open to what is here.

Where Do You Return To? | Spring Renewal Retreat

I’ve recently returned from leading a retreat in Thailand. Our location at Samahita is very dear to my heart. It was where I took my very first week long yoga retreat in 2013, not knowing what to expect, just needing time to clear my head and get perspective. Back then, as a business owner, I realized I hadn’t had a family holiday in 12 years without taking my work with me.

I had no idea that week would change the trajectory of my life…

What is wanting to emerge in 2024? (A simple practice and a last minute invitation.)

What is wanting to emerge in 2024? (A simple practice and a last minute invitation.)

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 setting clear intentions from a place of reflection, enquiry and deep listening that emerges from the inside out. Allowing my mind to become quieter, I find space for ideas to seed, possibilities to emerge.

A gift, a stress-relief practice, and a holiday special invitation

A gift, a stress-relief practice, and a holiday special invitation

I imagine you’re right in the middle of bustling activity that surrounds this time of year, you can just feel a shift in mood, energy, activity and expectations.

I invite you to take a moment to pause, brew a cup of your favourite tea, coffee or pour yourself some water and come back.

Settle into your seat, gently lengthen your spine, feel your feet on the group, take a soft, deep breath in allowing your jaw to relax, then soften even more allowing your shoulders to meet as you take a long sigh out. Take two more long, slow breaths.

These days before Christmas can be especially challenging for many as we…
