Your personal journey isn't just a practice, it's your active choice to live

As the demands of our daily lives increase the pressure being put on us, its important to develop resilience so that we can continue to grow personally and professionally through achieving our goals. Here are a handful of my top tips for resilience, you may like to adopt in 2019!

1. Detach yourself from old patterns - The Dutch have a great saying "leave your old cows in their ditches!". Patterns of behavior, or mindsets, were created in the past, if we keep playing out the same patterns of behavior, we are binding the past into the present. When we leave the old pattern in the ditch, behind us, we are free to walk lightly and unburdened on our path to achieving our goals.

The trick of course is being able to see the pattern. This c...

Arie and I hosted the latest discovery for change retreat offering for Synthesis on Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th August experiencing all the elements of nature including 4 tides on the historic Jersey Heritage Trust Seymour Tower site. We were 7 intrepid explorers taking this unique opportunity to get in touch with and rebalance our whole selves on Jersey's National Park RAMSAR wetlands site.

Each retreat that we hold is unique, because of the individuals, the timing and the location of the event. One of the many special features of this retreat was the new moon solar eclipse. This was the only weekend date that I could get for the Tower this summer, and I was delighted when I realised that the astrology was not only a new moon call for a fresh st...

Those of you who have done courses with me will be familiar with Roberto Assagioli's Psychosynthesis Egg model, or, more correctly, map of the psyche, beautifully illustrated in the diagram below (credit: Institute of Psychosynthesis, London). In my opinion, its a wonderful model that really assists in understanding where I am on my personal journey; so now you have heard it once, if you stick around with me a bit longer, I promise you will hear about it at least another thousand times!

In the centre of the egg, within the field of consciousness (that which we are aware of), you will find the "I", which I interpret as heart centred me. The HeartMath institute speak of the heart brain and Corporates site EQ or emotional intelligenc...

Many people have been asking me about Psychosynthesis Coaching, and what differentiates it from other coaching qualifications, so I decided to write an article to share the messages further and wider. If you have any further questions after reading this, please do feel free to make direct contact with me.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a supportive, enabling and empowering relationship and activity that honours the autonomy, resourcefulness, creativity and responsibility of the client. It is goal, future or outcome oriented in purpose, and yet can include working with you in the domains of past as well as present to understand what may be hindering your potential. Psychosynthesis Coaching involves contracting with a qualified practitioner...

I had been planning my trip to India for the best part of 2 years, and I wasn't sure I was going until 31st January 2018 when all the barriers were lifted and I was released for 5 weeks. I had been drawn to exploring my body through yoga and had found the Guru and Ashram I wanted to go to through a match in psycho-spiritual and philosophical beliefs. That was the easy bit, it took 2 years of negotiating with myself, my family and my employer to finally get on that plane! A lot changed in those 2 years, including the relocation of the ashram from South India to the North, and that gave me my final big wobble...but I wanted to be by the sea on a turtle preservation beach! I don't know land locked mountains, I know and love the rhythm of the sea! N...

Watch out! I have been introduced to a new wholesale supplier. Jan & Stacey spend 3 months a year travelling the world finding the best crystals from the most ethical sources. Its taken them many years to discern who they want to do business with, and the quality really shines through. I spent a whole afternoon in their showroom, and left delighted, if a little energy high, with my purchases.

You can experience the crystals in all the events being run in the spring/summer season at Synthesis, and they will be available to purchase if you like working with them. Take a look at the programmes on the web page to join in on the integrative yoga, reiki practitioners energy development, Seymour tower retreat...and much much more.

So, I'm going to group...

Crystal number 1 - Aqua Aura

These a simply beautiful iridescent bundles of alchemic love power. We are reaching a point in our evolution where science meets nature/creativity/spirituality. If we can find a harmony we will be propelled forward. These clear quartz crystals have been vapourised with pure gold.  They activate the throat through the solar plexus and the heart encouraging us to express our power with love, which will transform your life on the physical plane. Aqua Aura wants you to know that you are worth it. it may be that you keep yourself stuck in some pretty heavy mental programmed belief that you are not worthy, you are not good enough. Its time to say NO to those old programmed messages, deeply ingrained into your psyche. Its ti...

I have recently heard talk that Reiki is "outmoded". This has left me with a sinking feeling that somehow personal development/spiritual practice is becoming a fast moving commodity. Reiki was my entry point onto my journey, and has been a comforting thread through my evolution over the last 15 years. Far from being outmoded it has provided a wealth of resources, practices and insights that have assisted my personal/spiritual development and ongoing transformation. Here are 10 of the ways that Reiki has changed my life:

1. Relaxation - when giving a Reiki healing you become a channel of healing vibration for the receiver. This is a deeply relaxing experience for both the client and the healer. I have profound sensations of heart opening and love...
