The Joy of Learning to know Yourself

by Jen Taylor.

What is your life purpose, what will you choose & what may be the benefits?

Who would you want to be remembered as, at the end of your life?

Where would you love to make a difference or contribution?

When could you allow yourself to follow your inner knowing and create more space to shine?

There will be many people, places, things which can seem insignificant but may also be alluring and oh so ready to jump in and take you off your path of wiser knowing.  There are many little ways these events can take you away from what may make your heart alight with joy.

Some situations of being taken off your path could look like this…

One could be an amazing job offer which looks great on paper with the salary you would love.  However, when you take a look a bit further into the details and the values, does this offer really align to what you would love to be doing in your life & feel fulfilling to your inner self?  Instead you may be required to meet constant deadlines and let go of caring for yourself where could be needed.  If you have a feeling of enjoying some kind of service component, there may be the possibility of this being included in your work, or even a hobby which contributes to the planet.

Another example could be where you may have chosen every week that no matter what, you will head to the pub for a drink.  Instead now your body prefers a walk with the dog or down at the beach, with a dinner choice which is more nourishing and energising.  However, your friends are hoping that you’ll be with them and you feel torn, as your heart is saying that it’s not what you really feel to do in this moment.  That possibility of something more fulfilling calling you, can come as a feeling, a quiet whisper to experience something differently.  What will you feel to listen to and choose?




Or there may be something you love to do in your break time - going out and sitting under a tree.  Then just when you head outside, your peers at work or college feel to join you to chat or gossip and your alone time seems like it’s just gone out the window.  Have you pondered the idea that it could be they would also love to sit under the tree and have some stillness?  You could explain that it’s not necessarily a chat time that you’re looking for, however a time where you love to sit and have some relaxation & quietness to re-charge.  Who knows it could be just what they are looking for too!  Instead of feeling frustrated, you may offer to share the invite and see if that’s what they may like to do… of course, you will need to let go of any attachment to how it may turn out as they could choose to leave or stay.

It can take some courage to speak up and kindly explain your preference.  There will also be a trust required that things will be ok and something may work out, when you choose the new change. 

From my own experiences the results can be very freeing & profound.  There becomes so much joy in following your true inner knowing and believing in yourself.  The key is staying in that initial spark & essence of feeling the awareness. 

A Mentor can then assist keeping you on track with practicing your new actions, in consistent small steps from that.

Delay Dementia

Currently there are a lot of stories and information in the media about dementia. We would like to offer you some clarification.

Welcome to the World of [...]

by Debbie Bates.

My first experience of this profound complementary therapy was in 1999, I was pleasantly surprised as I felt a deep sense of relaxation moving through my body and afterwards, a state of calm as I moved back out into the world.  I was fascinated that points on the feet were connected to different parts of my body and through the session, felt stress falling away from my neck and shoulders.  It was after this session that I decided to undertake a practitioner’s course and while studying, my family and friends benefited as I practiced on them and that helped lessen their stress also - a win/win.

Every Body Loves Bowen

by Jen Taylor.

I meet many clients who come in to find some relief from the pain patterns & injuries which may be interrupting their daily routine.  It is common in our western culture to be used to needing a quick fix to be able to carry on with life.  It seems as a society we are not so keen at accepting the pain and addressing any feelings that may be underneath the pain.  There is such a drive to ignore pain or to reach for some kind of pain relief to be able to carry on with the daily routine.  Certainly, sometimes this is a necessary choice however, pain can be a wonderful signal in the body to help us to look at and address perhaps a wider set of problems.  The body is sending a message to look a bit closer and pay attention, if one chooses. 

Fascinating Fascia

By Reinette Nel.

Fascia is the new buzz word.  For ages we have been cutting away the fascia to get to the more important aspects in the human body like the muscles, bones and organs not knowing or realising that what has been discarded was in fact the largest sense organ within the body.

Fascia is everywhere in the body.  It surrounds and forms an intricate network within every structure.  It is a strong, flexible support system,  the most richly innervated tissue in the body, with a very high density of sensory nerves that help our nervous system orient to our surroundings.

It’s like a smooth and slippery web of connective tissue that attaches, stabilises, encloses and separates.  It is the stuff that holds us together otherwise we would just be a puddle on the floor, almost like jelly.  If you can make everything else in the body disappear (except fascia), you would look like a big piece of candyfloss.

Emotions & Psychological [...]

By Dr Elinor van Ommen.

“Am I too sensitive?” , “why can’t I move on from this?”… these are common questions I hear, and I often meet people who are in distress that relates to difficulty processing emotion.
