This idea that we are not our thoughts has been growing on me for a number of years. The base idea of all meditation is to transcend thought, and ultimately experience the power of being in the absolute here and now. So, I get it. Kind of. I don’t meditate nearly as mu...

Today my heart is aching for humanity. I see a world that is so divided. On days like today I feel powerless to help. I wish I could show everyone that at our core, our essence is the same. I wish people could see that the differences we observe in each other are as su...

(Original post written - 3rd April 2016)

Since last year I have become very aware of the external pressures on me to do more, and be more. Everywhere I look, I see attempts to shame me into thinking what I have, or who I am simply isn’t enough. Adverts portraying unachi...

This is a question that has been on my mind for some time, and I’m choosing courage over silence to share my perspective on this word, my relationship with it, and why I think those in the West might just take some comfort from what I have to say.

I’m one of an increasing number of people who are waking up to the fact that we humans simply aren’t cut out for what Western culture is throwing at us. We’re connected to our work 24/7. We are working harder, for longer, for less. The monetary reward is really inconse...

A common misunderstanding of our human experience is that it is things 'out there' that cause feelings 'in here' *points at heart*. How many times have you said “you make me feel….”? For example, if someone shouts at you, it’s really easy to believe that your...

As I partied last weekend in Amsterdam for Pride, I became acutely aware (not for the first time!) that I'm a little bit weird and at times, I can be very intense. I know from my travels that being in an unfamiliar environment or meeting new people is a great way to le...

There are thousands of articles and inspirational quotes about “living your truth” or encouraging you to just “be yourself”. If only it were that easy! Achieving these things is tough - trust me, I’ve been there. I still have days when I find that being true to myself...
