Vulnerability

Yesterday I did a very deep backbend in yoga, the deepest I have ever gone in the pose. When I got home I looked up what the significance of that was. Backbends are very vulnerable poses.

It’s letting go of your need to control the outcome, and relinquish the fears and the anxiety that holds your littleness in place. It’s to choose love in every moment, no matter […]

Although people often say how out of control one really is in this world we generally choose not to believe that. […]

The End of Grace and the Beginning of Faith

Last week was the first week that I didn’t manage to write a blog post in almost a year. I was moving my 90 year old grandmother out of her house which she had lived in for 64 years, which is no mean feat as one could imagine. At 11pm when I realized that the […]
