I have just learnt, through peace activist Dr Mitch Hall(whom I interviewed for my Yoga for Conscious Living article) of the new film, Carbon, directed by Leila Connors. It's narrated by Leonardo DiCaprio and presented by Thom Hartmann, intended for free worldwide distribution, available here.

Conscious Home Eco-Renovation

What a privilege it is to chat with an eco-renovator within their own home. There’s the confirmation that surfaces and finishes are not leaching chemical waste for years to come. The cooling and heating are taken care of through good insulation and where possible, passive design. Sipping harvested, purified rain water, a sound scape of birds song drifts through the windows and into discussions. Even the water you wash your hands with recycles back into the toilet bowl afterwards and the aesthetics are appealing too. It seems that once you start a home eco-renovation you naturally want to inspire others, and the flow-on effect for sustainable living is life changing.

Have you had a teary day/ week or even month lately? A teary moment, even? Have you been told you’re ‘too sensitive’, ‘overly sensitive’ and ‘hyper sensitive’?

Home now - a poem

I go,
And I write,
And I feel for my breath,
And as I do,
I feel a caress,
Of warmth on my cheek,
I missed you, my friend,
The warmth of the sun,
With rays that amend.

Imagining the WellBeing Yoga Immersion weekends...

Imagine…

You feel rushed, a little apprehensive, then enter a space that has been so beautifully, meditatively prepared, filled with indelible intentions for your own exploration, that you relax. As you enter, you start to let go and listen to soothing sounds of yoga music as it flows through your ears and into your heart, softening you while you look for a space to call home for the weekend amongst others that you haven’t yet met. I smile at you, chanting softly, then bring you an oil to soothe your marma points and clear your energy. You roll out your mat. As you take a breath in, you breathe a sacred scent from the oil and another from the love altar; a divine scent from ancient times, welcoming and nurturing your senses.

On Criticism

Recently I discovered that over many years I unconsciously embraced a criticism of my handwriting that didn’t come from me. In the process of conscious living, you uncover or wake up to things that you do unconsciously that no longer serve you, and it’s a wonderful thing, because it provides the opportunity to let go and live differently.

Yoga for Business Success

Anyone in business wants their efforts to be purposeful, their interactions fruitful, their business successful. You want to be able to love what you do and you want your business to perform well. Imagine if you had a business tool that calms your mind for clarity, heals your body for focus, opens your heart so you are less likely to be triggered and more able to thrive in the workplace. Imagine what that can do for your business, for your life.

Yoga for Conscious Living

Living consciously with yoga is a process that awakens you to how your reactions from old programs in the mind are no longer supporting you and need to be turned off. Old programs need to be replaced with more affective ones for an empowering life. Yoga teaches you to observe your reactions, practice detaching from them, knowing you can recover from the past and replace these things with joyous peace through the practice of yoga.
