Ancient Wisdom: Remembering and Knowing

Ancient wisdom. Traditional wisdom. Ancestral wisdom. Ancient knowing. Ancient remembering. It all makes so much sense to me now. Previously these were intellectual concepts… and now, experientially, I feel it all so deeply in my heart, in my whole being. Follow me on this journey for a moment… For many years of being down the rabbit hole of nutrition and health, I developed an ancestral and rewilding view and approach to life as a human, to live as closely as possible to nature and our natural design. There has always been a flavour of the concept of traditional wisdom that …

Rebirthing Breathwork and Sound Medicine: A Powerful Healing Experience

I recently had a one-on-one rebirthing and sound healing session with the incredible Daniel Coates, aka. Suntara, and it was one of the most amazing healing experiences I’ve ever had. Here is a recap of my journey: As I began to breathe, in through the nose, out through the nose, just as a baby does… free, uninhibited, natural, rhythmic… it seemed that my breath was anything but this, and moreso a breath that signified I was in fight or flight mode, my sympathetic nervous system in activation, not fully letting my breath go on the exhale, and holding at the …

Giving and Receiving

The acts of giving and receiving have been present in my life for as long as I can remember. When I give, it is without expectation. I give because I enjoy seeing others happy, cared for and feeling good. But what about receiving?? I don’t receive as easily as I give. This is something I’m very aware of and am still learning to do graciously. I’ve realised that reciprocity is a human tendency and is also present throughout the natural world. Since we are nature, it is no surprise that we express this tendency. Giving without expectation is beautiful, but it …

Come Home (Poem)

Imagine…. Walking through the depths of a dark forest…. I see a flicker of bright light through the trees. Curious in wonderment, I head towards the light. I notice the freshness and crispness of the air as my feet carry me across the ground. I notice the sound of the bell bird, guiding me, reminding me that I am safe. I notice the glistening of the leaves on the tallest trees… the trees providing the container for the whole forest to be grounded into the earth. I notice the footprints along the ground, wondering who may have walked this path …

Embracing Vulnerability in a Safe Space

*Human vulnerability share* Without saying “I am”, I will say, “there is” self-consciousness here…. Yep, the usually strong, confident, calm me has a version of internal “not good enough” and “belonging” stuff that may or may not look like it on the surface, but it’s there. Not a huge amount of it anymore, but there are still remnants… enough to notice when I allow myself to be vulnerable. And it came up for me in an experience this week with two dear friends that were holding my space…. There were a few things going on, but this was a space …

Reconnected (Poem)

R E C O N N E C T E D… … as a tree grounded into the earth, she provides support, she provides nourishment, she nurtures us, she speaks to us in whispers, in waves, in sounds, in silence. She watches us grow. She is our foundation. She is alive. She is life. Right here on the earth, I am safe. Right here on the earth, I am loved. Right here on the earth, I am connected. Right here on the earth, I am free. Right here on the earth, I am home….
