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.

What I don’t say

At times such as these, change is all around. There are more questions than answers.  I’ve newly got all 3 kids in school and have simultaneously stripped myself of my professional armour. As a result I’ve become acutely conscious, and frankly a lot sensitive about the assumptions others are making about who I am, what … Continue reading
