WELCOME to the mind+body issue. In contemporary thinking, the mind and the body are thought of as two distinctly seperate elements, as if the human condition is dissected into two experiential pathways. In a world fixated on compartmentalisation and categorisation, the body is seen as a little more than a lumbering husk, condemned to decay from its creation, chauffeuring your thoughts, hopes and dreams through time.

follow the sun

Oneworld Retreats bring back the traditions We’re not the only ones who have noticed the trend of yoga today being dominated by the physical.

warm up with original chai co

Free from all the nasties and filled with all the goodness of traditional, Indian chai, you can’t go past Original Chai Co. The owners both grew up in India, and remember waking up to a fresh cup of Mum’s chai each morning. After moving to Melbourne they craved this nostalgic treat, but found it impossible to find a chai that stayed true to tradition (not powders or syrups, just good old fashioned masala). A business with heart, they’re committed to brewing each batch with love from their childhood and passion for chai. Following Mum’s old school recipes, the brews include black tea, ginger, cardamom and more, and come in two simple flavours (of the 100% natural variety): Morning Masala and Afternoon Masala – to get you going or wind you…
