Emotional resilience

It’s not always easy to find resilience. When you have the ground whipped out from beneath you, it's easy feel helpless and think that you’ll never survive. You may feel that you no longer know who you are, or, what you want in life.

Look me in the eye.

The other week I attended a workshop designed to help understand and support children with 'disabilities'. As a mum with a daughter diagnosed as having Asperger’s Syndrome, as a volunteer for Riding for the Disabled, for me 'disability' is not something to be fixed, it's a different way of being.

Time to emerge and bloom?

When you look at your life, how would you describe your story so far? Is it one of fun and adventure, or, are you someone who likes to feel comfortable? What have been the greatest moments; what have been your struggles?

Who in the world am I?

"Who in the world am I?”, asked Alice in her quest for identity. On the surface, a story that is considered by some to be about fun and nonsense, underneath a deeper meaning about growth and expansion.

“Who am I?” - a great question for us all, a question we can face when we feel lost or confused, when we choo...

How do you see yourself?

Freedom. We’re hearing lots of conversation around the world about the way our governments are addressing the Covid pandemic. Some see the measures taken as restricting individual freedom, others see them as being for the collective good and accept that we need to take care of our community, our nation. Where do you stand?

Beyond limits

When you go on the journey of understanding and becoming more of who you are, the chances are that there can be quite a few rocks on your path! You need to look at the gift of these rocks, whether they be your conditioning, beliefs, fears, judgements, anything that blocks your way, and find a way to skip over them.
