Abundance, Enough-Ness & Becoming Yourself

Spring is very much a season of abundance. Plants come into bloom, nature emerges from hibernation, and the lushness and light of life returns after a rather long, dark Winter.

4 Ways To Truly Detox

When the season of Spring rolls around, we’re often confronted with the fact that Summer isn’t far away, and subsequently faced with articles about ‘detoxing’, ‘cleansing’, and getting a ‘Summer body’.

Don’t Wait. Be Great.

Towards the end of the year, we can get into the habit of letting Christmas drinks, heavy foods and low amounts of sunshine take it’s toll on both the body and mind.

Impermanence: It’s Time To Get Uncomfortable

‘The only thing that is constant is change’  Heraclitus Life is movement. The exchange of an inhale and exhale, the beat of the heart as it pumps blood around the body, the movement from day to night and back to day, the cycle of the moon, the movements of the mind from ‘happy’ to ‘sad’Continue reading “Impermanence: It’s Time To Get Uncomfortable”
