Quietening the Perfectionist Inside

I’ve been away over six weeks now and over the past few days have really started to reflect on what I’ve done, where I’ve been, the people I’ve met and the things I’ve learned. This self-reflection was much needed as the past couple of weeks have felt like a whirlwind of fun and excitement – […]

My Sound Therapy Experience with the Soma-Board

Some amazing things happened to me in Goa. It’s where I met the wonderful healing masseuse Judit, subject of my first ‘Interview with a Healer’ blog post; it’s where I really discovered my passion for yoga while on the Chaya retreat this January; it’s where I began my own healing journey after a period of personal […]

An Ode to India

I came to India for the first time this January, to just one place, for just ten days. I booked a ticket back out there almost as soon as I got home. Now, having just spent one month in India, it has served only to whet my appetite more. I’ve seen only a fraction of […]

Interview with a Healer – #1

While on this healing journey I am trying a lot of different therapies, through which I’ve met some very interesting and powerful healers. The first was in Goa during the yoga retreat I went on in January, which is where this chapter of my healing story really began. So, quite appropriately, my first in a […]

Letting Go of Anger

Today is the birthday of someone who’s very special to me but also someone with whom the relationship certainly hasn’t always been easy. We’ve had our ups as downs, shall we say… So, it seems like an appropriate time to write about a topic I’ve been pondering over for a while now – letting go […]

Do Nothing – a Lesson in Zen

I’m reading a fantastic book at the moment called Zen and the Art of Falling in Love, by Brenda Shosanna (I highly recommend!) The book talks about Zen teachings and then applies this to modern life,  in particular, to romantic relationships. It is really insightful into the way we are in relationships: generally needy, feeling we […]

Discovering Yoga

I’ve been thinking a lot about how I discovered yoga and how grateful I am for the positive effect it’s having on my life at the moment. I’ve been practicing it, alone or in classes, almost every day since coming on this trip, and intend to continue doing so. In fact I want to make […]

A Lesson in Loving Myself

I learnt an important lesson this morning in learning to love myself. As mentioned in a previous post that is something I’ve realised I am yet to have really achieved and have made a commitment to work on while I am on this journey. I didn’t sleep very well last night and woke up at […]

Healing Beauty Goes Global

As I type this I am sitting on the balcony of Sherin Cottage guesthouse in Kerala, India. It’s just gone midday and it’s 30 degrees outside, but there is a light breeze so for me the temperature is just perfect. I can hear various different birds squawking in the trees and in view is a […]
