Waking up; becoming more of who we are.

We are living in times where there is more and more potential for increasing consciousness. At the same time, and in the way of polarity, many are becoming more and more lost in deep habit patterns, addictions and relentless busyness. In this way every moment is filled so that there is no space for creative […]

Keeping connected – A strong centre As our changed world intensifies and we find ourselves more and more restricted in our outer lives, we may be reminded of how this can be a time for drawing on and connecting to ourselves in the inner realms. There is a spaciousness within us that we can access […]

April 26th 2020

As we settle into another 3 weeks of ‘lock down’, we might ask ourselves how are we doing in this changed world? how are we using this time? There will no doubt be many ups and downs in our personal lives, and certainly there is much suffering and pain all around, and that we may […]

By Kay Baxter ‘Being oneself’ is the ultimate ease of being that many people long for.

With dignity; alone; our troubles and joys, moods and states, we sit, our bodies, breath, our intent, provide […]

Birthday unfolding

Meditation: A means to oneself

I came across the title of a book recently; clever and thought provoking, the title, ‘Don’t just do something, sit there’ aptly sums up something of the essence of the work of meditation and personal growth.
