A moment to pause before 2021

A moment to pause before 2021

You’d be forgiven for wanting to eagerly move from 2020 to 2021. This year has been hard. We have been in something collective, across the whole world. But it’s been different for each and every one of us. As I spoke to my Dad who has struggled being on his own. To...
To you this Christmas

To you this Christmas

I knew that I wanted to write to you all but I wasn’t sure if I had the words.  The words to express what we’ve been through this year.  The words to provide comfort as we go into Christmas.  A Christmas that highlights the experience of the year, further heartbreak,...

The conflict of Valentine’s day

The conflict of Valentine’s day

It’s supposed to be the day we celebrate love but it brings up so much in so many of us. If you’re on your own it can bring up resentment, fear, longing for something you don’t have. If you’re in a relationship the expectations can be high, and often unmet. There are...
Everything you need is within you

Everything you need is within you

Yesterday I went to see Jack Kornfield in London, Jack trained as a Buddhist Monk in Thailand, India and Burma and now teaches Buddhist psychology and meditation all over the world. Yesterday he ended with this “Everything you need is within you.” So often...
