I love this video

In case you didn’t see it, I wanted to share this video that was taken a couple of weeks ago at the NVC retreat in Bali. I sat with a lot of people that week but sometimes, a comment or person just stands out and makes me want to make sure that as many people … Read more

No matter what

If you were following my Facebook live videos at last week’s NVC retreat in Bali, then you will no doubt have an idea of just how life changing and impactful this experience was for everyone involved – and hopefully in some way, for those of you watching at home too. There are so many things … Read more

Slowing down

Last week I shared a video about timelessness and how it connects to who we really are. This week, I’d like to continue that conversation by talking about what happens when we slow time down. During my stay in Central Australia with my indigenous ‘family’, it quickly became clear that: time is different there. Time … Read more

Who are you really?

You may already know that I have just come back from a week long trip to Central Australia to spend time within an indigenous community. I love these experiences, not only for the connection to the people but also for the connection to the land and ultimately, the timelessness of the life we are all … Read more

The sweetness of requests

There are so many things that I have learnt from NVC that have been profoundly life changing – far more than learning a 4-step process. The underpinnings of what I have gained is a natural giving from the heart ​that helps me to live from the richness of life as I communicate in this way… … Read more

The Power of Honesty

One of the things I find most important in life is honesty.  For me, it’s not just about speaking truthfully to others (although that is a big part of it), it is about being truthful with myself about the motivations of every action I take, and choosing to consciously align myself with what matters in … Read more

How to quiet your own voice of criticism

After last week’s video on turning 55, it felt right to further the exploration of self-reflection and comment on a habit that many of us engage in: self-criticism. For most of us, the best way our parents knew to help us grow into “wonderful human beings” was to in some way criticise, shame, and punish … Read more

Getting Older, Learning and Celebrating

A week ago I turned 55 and had the opportunity to deliver an impromptu presentation to a small group. The topic I was asked to share was: “What have I learnt so far in my life, and what wisdom would I like to share with others”. It was fun for me to reflect and celebrate, … Read more

Would you like to be Sensitive and Thriving?

I trust you are having a wonderful start to April. I recently sat down with a dear friend, Karin Amali  who works specifically with parents and she shared with me some very practical ways we can foster our children’s (and anyone else’s for that matter!) trust in themselves. As the mother of two children, I … Read more

You have enormous power

This week, I wanted to share with you a very quick video from Dr Marshall Rosenberg, the founder of Nonviolent Communication. I don’t want to say much about this video because I’d prefer you to receive its message without interference from me, however, I will say this: Just imagine if you truely lived from what … Read more
