Today I explore how the MBSR course helped me, in the context of group learning. Practicing mindfulness by myself for many years has… Continue reading Reflections In The Mirrors of Mindfulness

My Body, My Temple

These past few weeks I have been engaging more with the feelings and sensations of my own body through mindful movement. It is interesting moving mindfully. What usually can seem like a normal step during a walk suddenly becomes an entire experience, with an open awareness of how each muscle in the foot expands and… Continue reading My Body, My Temple

Silencing the Inner Storm

Life has been pretty chaotic lately and I couldn’t help but thinking about a saying that goes along the lines of, ‘You should meditate for at least 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy…then you should meditate for an hour’. I felt so full of work and other stresses that it came as a… Continue reading Silencing the Inner Storm

Follow Your Dreams: The Beauty of Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist

I have many a friend who loves the works of Paulo Coehlo and admittedly the past weekend was the first time I had read any of his novels. I bought The Alchemist a year or so ago and never got round to getting past the first few pages.

Creative Happiness: Finding Your Inner Artist

This past week I have embarked on a creative adventure. I love being creative – playing or composing music, drawing, woodcarving, writing short stories and blogging. The problem is, that magical and thrilling feeling of having true inspiration had been lost for some years.

Removing the Taboo for Mental Health Awareness Week

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week, a week like no other but when everyone opens their eyes to what is there, each and every day. Human suffering. Our silent suffering. Wounds on the body being visible may be treated, stitched together. But our minds…what lies within are invisible to all. And worst of all sometimes our… Continue reading Removing the Taboo for Mental Health Awareness Week

We All Have A Jekyll And Hyde

There can a part of us that we smile at and favouritise and another part of us that we’re not so happy with. Perhaps we take great pride in being a good cook, a doting partner, or a solid worker. And then there’s that other part of us; maybe we are disatisfied with a part… Continue reading We All Have A Jekyll And Hyde
