Confessions of a Recovering Over-Achiever.

  I’ve been quite internal these past weeks, descending into the longest night of the year… I taught a sold-out workshop on Sydneys Northern Beaches a few weeks ago. My first big event in ages. And although I feel more robust than ever I am highly sensitive. Following some big and difficult decisions about my Teacher Training (more […]

I’M NOT STRESSED. It’s a lie, and we know it.

Hey love, It’s been a while since I wrote. I’ve been down the rabbit hole, with my Muse. Deconstructing stress. Postulating on the role of fascia in my work with the nervous system (OMG!). Re-defining rest and its role in our capacity to thrive. I gotta say, I’m doing some of my greatest work ever. I live for this! It’s […]

Holy Ground: Lessons from a Broken Heart.

BOOM! My relationship abruptly ended in January. So I’ve been nursing a broken heart. And at the risk of sounding a little cliché, I learned how to live – when this body would not eat or sleep. Fuuuuuck. It was brutal, humbling. To be left by the man I love? I was gutted. You see, I’m 45 and I’ve […]

What’s it gonna take, love?

Everyone I speak to says the same thing: “life is sooooo busy!” Even though I live in paradise in Byron Bay, life is full-to-the-brim here too! Without the simple things I do, and the way I do them each day – to cultivate calm – I would be riding on adrenaline too… But I’m not, and I feel fantaaaastic. At 45 I […]

This is the work. In action.

I promised to launch Permission to Rest this week…. A few of you have asked about it. Full disclosure: Recently I had a meltdown. Yep. Ironically it was as I was preparing to go ‘offline’ for a 4-day digital detox holiday! Craaaazy! Right? And whilst I’m left in a kind of foggy, gentle space – there’s […]

Sleep: Disorder or Liberated?

    If you struggle to sleep for 8-9 hours each night – you are not alone.  Sleep is not – as modern culture declares it – a luxury. When we skimp on sleep – our essential restoration processes are disrupted and our whole system suffers… Research shows that we are collectively more sleep-deprived than ever. With our never-ending […]

Brain Fog is a Bitch.

An ambiguous modern-day affliction. And it’s scarier than it sounds. Until I started talking about it, I had no idea just how many people lived with some degree of brain-fog… Last April I got sick. Really sick. I was in Sydney teaching workshops. I couldn’t sleep. I was beyond activated. It was as though my brain had been […]

Our Rest-Deprivation Crisis

This little-known fact breaks my heart: When it comes to rest – we are chronically malnourished. It’s true. We are in the midst of a global rest-deprivation crisis. A Superhero-syndrome. We. Don’t. Know. How. To. Stop! Yet modern science concurs: we need rest – in order to thrive.   Many people secretly ache for permission to rest. But with our burgeoning Superhero-complex – most […]

The Irony of Resolving Trauma

  Last week I realised it was exactly one year, since I wrote my first (accidental) blog: Fear of Being Seen. It was never my intention to write a blog. Especially about my own experience – of living what I teach!! Looking back over the year – it appears that I am indeed the student, the […]

Full Disclosure.

Instead of pushing myself to get something ‘fabulous’ out there for my tribe – I’m actually gonna share what’s really going on. It feels like I owe you that much. And myself.   I’ve been at odds with my own reckoning. Since getting really sick a year ago – I have become more sensitive than ever. And […]
