How to exercise ripple awareness

How to exercise ripple awareness

When I do something, like make a change, or a choice about my life, it has a ripple effect on a whole bunch of people. Some of those people I know. Some people even tell me the ways in which my change, choice, or decision has impacted on them. And most of the time (if … Continue reading

How to find your own personal Hogwarts

How to find your own personal Hogwarts

Thanks to the wonder of YouTube, I have some great spiritual teachers accompanying me around the house right now. They share their wisdom with me as I sort socks, pick up lego and cook meals. And they tell me the same thing over and over – that (as the recently deceased Wayne Dyer puts it) “we … Continue reading

The quiet defiance of love

The quiet defiance of love

In the fearful days after the attacks of 9/11 I read this article by Ian McKewan. In the simplest terms it spoke about love as an act of defiance. How, as the attacks in New York happened, expressions of love were everywhere, even in the midst of life altering tragedy. How those who knew they … Continue reading

What kids get that we’ve forgotten

What kids get that we’ve forgotten

As I sat in my garden this afternoon one of my kids ran past, brandishing a sword, shirtless, and completely lost in an imaginative game.

How to create the life you want in 2015

Of late I’ve been opening doors. Not actual doors. Metaphorical ones. I’ve been opening metaphorical doors, and peering to see what’s behind them. Some doors I’ve just nudged open a crack with my foot, stood back and let the air circulate. Other doors I’ve flung open and walked right through. This blog post is one of … Continue reading

5 reasons parents need life coaches

5 reasons parents need life coaches

I used to have all sorts of vague notions about what a life coach might do, none of which, as it turns out, were terribly close to the mark. Now I’m becoming a life coach myself, I’ve also become a coachee. And what I’ve discovered is that parents (like me) need life coaches. Here’s why. … Continue reading

Photoshop for the mind

Photoshop for the mind

I used to think that filters were a Bad Thing. By filters, I mean those ones you access when you hit edit on your camera phone, and suddenly your distinctly average photo looks all funky, or vintage or something other than it actually was to start with. I thought they were just another way of … Continue reading
