Humans, as an expression of life, are dependent on one thing: air. This air that passes between you and through your lungs is the same force that breathes life into elements of nature such as trees and plants. But sometimes this air gets stale, trapped or blocked in the body. Natural healing modalities such as acupuncture, yin yoga and pranayama work to reset your energetic system in order to free your mind and alleviate this tension. But sometimes your regular means of resetting doesn’t have the same effect any more. Humans, animals and nature are all creatures of habit that...

You’re in an aeroplane and sitting by the window. As the plane ascends, you watch the world below grow smaller and smaller until, finally, you emerge through a blanket of sky. Woolly, white clouds shimmer in the sunlight. The horizon extends further than your eyes can see, blending the colours peach, pink, yellow and green into its deep blue. As the plane begins to level out, you feel the rumble of the engine underneath you and the sun warming your shoulder. Your destination? It doesn’t matter. Right now, you’re an explorer of space and time. Although the word “explore” evokes...

Sometimes conversations with your children are gentle butterflies encouraging you on a journey of self-discovery. Other times they are a slap in the face with a wet fish. This was a “wet fish” conversation if ever I’d had one. Elder daughter and I were talking about what “sustainable living” means. As it happens, the previous day we’d been talking about the concept of the “selfish gene”. This was a potent conversational stew we had brewed. Putting these two concepts together, she asked, “If we are saving the planet for future generations how is that different to being a selfish gene? We...

We’ve just transitioned out of what I believe to be the most hopeful time of the year. Replacing this is the holiday season, which is a period of joy, love and connection. This morning I walked down to the beach and was drawn to a particular rock, which I meditated on as the sun silently rose across the rolling waves of the ocean. I felt a deep sense of joy, love and connection as I basked in the delight of the morning sun among a sea of surfers, joggers and fellow Zen-seekers. A colleague shared some wise words of Rumi’s a...

While sipping on herbal tea, I read the articles and admire the beautiful images. It’s my version of downtime; my little ritual where I can tune out and relax. The article in issue #176 about managing expectations was a real standout for me. It came at...

how do you celebrate your beautiful body?

Celebrating my body is a work in progress. For me, celebrating my body is by looking in the mirror and saying out loud what I am grateful for about my body. I celebrate its functionality instead of continually critiquing it in comparison to society’s “norms”. Celebrating my body will be getting to a point where I am not fighting it and instead accepting with love what it wants to do and how it wants to look. Lucy Barrett I celebrate my beautiful body through self-love and self-care and by motivating and inspiring other beautiful women to do the same. Our bodies are...
