The next chapter

Hi everyone, As we segue our way from the dark evenings of winter to the bright lights of Christmas I hope this letter finds you calm and rested. If not, take a moment to check in with yourself and your energy. When we are living by the hormones of stress we feel emotions like anger, sadness or frustration. We can feel trapped or stuck by these emotions further adding to our distress. The expression ‘going with the flow’ is a metaphor that applies to navigating a river. When we go with the flow, we follow the current of the river… READ MORE

Feeling the Resistance

Hi everyone, And welcome back after the long summer. Here in Ireland, we are fortunate enough to be experiencing an Indian summer which is very welcome after our very wet July. I have to say though, that I really do love this time of year…  the hedgerows teeming with berries, the branches of the horse chestnut trees weighed down by conkers hidden in their spikey case and acorns from the oak packed neatly in their cup. The slight nip in the evening air heralds that summer has come to an end. And then as if to quell our sadness of… READ MORE

Back to centre June 2023

Hi everyone, Hope you all got a chance to enjoy this beautiful weather we’ve been having lately and that there is plenty more to come. This year I have decided to take the months of July and August off completely and spend a lot of the time in County Clare. There I am looking forward to catching up with family and friends, pursue some of my interests like reading, painting, yoga, walking and swimming. These pursuits I find very relaxing and help to centre me into the present moment. When our thoughts are scattered in several directions at once and… READ MORE

Returning Home

Hi everyone, Hope you are all getting  to enjoy the longer brighter days as we emerge from under the blanket of winter.

Birdsong fills the air heralding that spring has truly arrived.  The cycle of  seasons are an inevitable part of life and can be a source of comfort in our ever changing world. It reminds us that when  faced with stress or navigating  turbulent  times in  our lives we can take comfort in knowing that this too shall pass. …. READ MORE

Lay your troubles down January 2023

Hi everyone,And welcome to 2023, a year according to the numerologists is a year that is to bring an aura of discovery, intuition and compassion as we search for new ways to understand ourselves and the world around us. We all know the feeling of walking through life as if we are carrying the huge burden of our worries and stresses on our backs and shoulders, struggling to keep moving forward., and we are all longing to lay our burdens down. Just imagining that it would be possible to do such a thing can be enough to elicit a sigh… READ MORE

Being your own Master…November 2022 Meditation Classes

Hi everyone, I’m sure many of you got to experience the magnificent Full Moon this week as we now settle into the darker evenings and cosy nights by the fire. In our meditation class we just finished our block of four classes and enjoyed communicating with our higher selves (or the field of consciousness) through the use of mantras and visualisation. One of the chakras or energy centres we focused on this month was the 6th chakra or Third eye which pertains to our intuition. We spend a lot of our lives looking for role models, mentors, teachers, and gurus… READ MORE

Reap your reward…October Meditation Classes 2022

Hi everyone, Hope this letter finds you well as we move further into Autumn, when Mother Nature lets go and we can now harvest the fruits of her labour. We also get to delight in her display of colour before we descend into the darkness of winter. When we wish to create something new in our lives… a new relationship, a job, a new home, healthier lifestyle, we too need to let go of outdated beliefs and habits in order to move into this new phase in a healthy way. Sometimes this may seem difficult as the mind protests as… READ MORE
