Soul + Connection

Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
Denis Waitley

Why Minimalism is only part of the answer

I love Minimalism. I love Joshua and Ryan (The Minimalists) and their fantastic movie. I also love Joshua Becker (Becoming Minimalist) his family oriented approach. A little KonMari Method? Why not! But it is not the golden one shot wonder to... read more

Cosmic Love Notes

I suspect that we are all recipients of cosmic love notes. Messages, omens, voices, cries, revelations, and appeals are homogenised into each day’s events. If only we knew how to listen, to read the signs. Sam Keen. The Passionate Life: Stages of Loving, 1983   I invite you to spend a few days, or even a week, looking for signs of Cosmic Love Notes from the universe just to... read more

A Valentine’s Day KISS

K.I.S.S: Keep it simple sweetheart! The 3 Principles is the name given to a realization of a beautiful man called Sydney Banks in the 1970s. He realized that the whole of human existence was explained by the 3 simple principles of Mind, Thought and... read more

The Fertile Void

This year I have returned to my study of the Tao. This sounds overly pompous now I have written it and over-romanticises a teetering tower of Tao books besides my bed that threatens to smoother me in a paper avalanche at 3am.… read more

You are only ever one thought away from losing the stress, not your mind!

Missy M and I have been experimenting with the responsibility: always a fun and hair pulling out exercise. Could she play in the communal gardens, with friends, unsupervised?   Note I said ‘experimenting’? First I went downstairs to check if all was well, as I could no longer hear her playful screams from the... read more

Dustin Hoffman and Tootsie: a very personal and surprising insight

There has been a video clip that has been doing the rounds on Facebook and other social media outlets this week that I wanted to write about – but probably not for the reasons you think.   I am not going to talk about what this means about the life of being a woman; I am not going to talk about the male and female perspectives, or gender at... read more

Trying to get to sleep as a parent

I had one heck of an insight last night that I wanted to share with you. Sleep is important. We are parents – its really really important, precious and easily stolen.
