The art of walking upright

Hi, it’s been a while since I posted a blog, and this weekend while the sun is in that late summer/early autumn and the weather is that stunning stillness of in between I came across this beautiful poem, which I thought I would share. “The Art of Walking Upright”  By Glen Colquhoun The trick of […]

Looking after your mental health

Welcome to 2018! I realise we have had a bit of a break but we’re back! To start us off this week we have a guest post from Naturopath Karen Noble who is currently practicing in Adelaide, Australia. Have you ever had that feeling of emptiness, lack of joy and motivation and a need to […]

The beauty of trees

I was reading an article and listening to a podcast the other day on trees, and how trees are so much more than stationary and inactive.  This really resonated with me and it got me thinking how we are so often within the confines of our urban city concrete jungles that we forget the beauty of […]

The 5 side effects of kindness

Last week I discovered a book that I really enjoyed, called The 5 side effects of kindness, by Dr David Hamilton.

When you are on holiday and relaxed, taking care of yourself is a natural consequence but taking time for you becomes less of a priority as work, family and life commitments take over.

Wabi Sabi

For many 2016 raked us over the existential coals, and if you are like me trying to understand the why can become almost like an obsession. Wondering what it was that you did in order to deserve such hardship, and thinking that somehow you are lessor for what has happened. Damaged, flawed, lacking in some […]

Ho’oponopono

This week in clinic, I was reminded of a beautiful practice on forgiveness.  As we get so immersed in our lives and rush to this thing and that, with people often saying things that we may take offence to, or we just get so wound up in our own world of rush that we forget […]
