Seeing what you are capable of ...

I think we all have to agree - our world at the moment is going through a bit of a shake up! More and more of us are being asked to stay at home to protect our health and the wellness of our community. Of course we will have concerns. We also have an opportunity to pause and look at what's happening in the world, what we'd like to change, who we are and how we want to chan...

A cure for the virus...?

When you look at the world right now, what do you see?

On the surface, we may see panic, drama, fear. Fear around political structures, the financial markets, the environment, climate change and now the corona virus with restrictions on daily life, social interactions and travel. Of course, we also see people coming t...
