Embracing the Darkness

The Tao doesn't take sides; it gives birth to both good and evil. --Tao Te Ching The darkness, the void, the space that the mind is terrified to enter, is the beginning of all life. It's the womb of being. Fall in love with it, and when you do, it will immediately be taken from you, as you witness the birth of light. The Tao doesn't take sides. It embraces both the darkness and the light. They're equal. The Master can't take sides. She's in love with reality, and reality

Profound Tension Release

Profound Tension Release (PTR) is a technique developed by Chiropractor Dr Ken Stewart, for releasing tension within the connective tissues of our bodies.  Tension in our bodies develops as a response to injury and trauma arising from physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual stresses we inevitably experience throughout our lifetime. Profound Tension Release is based on an understanding of the body as an interactive, interconnected, energised (energetic) and highly sensitive entity. The connective tissue network forms a three-dimensional matrix of structural support within the body. It contains and shapes the body,

Heart Wisdom

“ Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.” ~ Miles Kington Qualities associated with wisdom include: a clear-eyed view of human nature and the human predicament, emotional resiliency, the ability to cope in the face of adversity, openness to other possibilities, forgiveness, humility, and a knack for learning from lifetime experiences. We can learn about wisdom from its qualities. It is difficult to have a succinct definition because wisdom is something that wise people live rather than think about.

Noticing the Space

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” ~ Victor Frankl: Man’s Search for Meaning What pushes your buttons? What is it about that annoying family member, friend or work colleague that has the ability to “get on your goat”? It is common for people who come to see me to be feeling stressed and having symptoms of this stress, such as neck and shoulder pain, headaches, anxiety and digestive

We Can Still Grow in Winter

Winter is the season of recovery and preparation. The cold draws us within ourselves and within our close social groups. We often find ourselves closed down by the cold, damp and dreary days. In this state we can choose to either find new depths of connection within; or wallow in our stories of how miserable we are. Winter encourages us to notice the subtleties in nature – the noble structure of bare trees, the shape of amassing clouds or the exquisite gleam of sunlight on the frosty ground. Be inspired

Living in the Flow

  We are “In The Flow” when we are fully engaged in an activity. When this occurs we feel immersed in that activity to the exclusion of all else and time passes quickly. People regularly describe these experiences as some of the best of their lives. “Being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you’re using your skills to the utmost.” “Flow:

Are You a Transition Person?

Every day in my practice, I help and I am inspired by people who have the qualities of a “Transition Person”. The expression “Transition Person” has been defined as: “A person who breaks unhealthy, harmful, abusive or unfortunate learned behaviours and replaces them with proactive, helpful, effective behaviours.  This person models positive behaviours and passes on effective habits that strengthen and build others in positive ways.” ~ Stephen Covey In my experience, “Transition People” experience a deep desire stand up and be a positive example to others in their family,

Emotions – Energy in Motion

When we feel an emotion, what we are really sensing is the vibration of a particular energy. Think of emotion as the movement of energy - energy in motion. Each emotion has its own vibratory signature. Science and medicine had long been convinced that thoughts and emotions originate in the brain. However, modern research is proving that thoughts and emotions are energy vibrations that occur in our body, specifically in the matrix of connective tissue which interconnects all cells, tissues and organs. These energy vibrations are then perceived by our

Compassion: The Less You Suffer, the Kinder You Naturally Become.

by Byron Katie Some people think that compassion means feeling another person's pain. That's nonsense. It's not possible to feel another person's pain. You imagine what you'd feel if you were in that person's shoes, and you feel your own projection. Who would you be without your story? Pain-free, happy, and totally available if someone needs you -- a listener, a teacher in the house, a Buddha in the house, the one who lives it. As long as you think there's a you and a me, let's get the bodies

Core Strength – Questioning the Prevailing Beliefs

There has been much emphasis on the concept of building core strength over recent years; it’s a concept that is incomplete to me. I see the key issue is actually core energy not core strength: I will explain. The “core” refers to the lower part of the body: the pelvis, the lower back, the abdominal wall, and the diaphragm, and this region’s ability to stabilise the body during movement. Every activity we do in life, from running to swallowing, is more efficient when we have a stable and yet flexible core. It’s a dynamic stability
