Using yoga, mindfulness and self-help techniques to:

- Loving for the Love of itWe are expanding the story of "love", creating more spaces where love can flow as it wants to, without conforming to a certain "path". We are learning to love without attachment. [Read More...]
- Disciplined MindsWe are living through Burning Times, and there’s a comfortable section of society that refuses to acknowledge this. Their politics are a reflection of the “ideological discipline” their middle-class jobs expect from them. We need to do much better. Last week I spent a few hours with the book “Disciplined Minds”, by Jeff Schmidt. I listened to it, read by Lyn Gerry, on the radio show “Unwelcome Guests”, back in 2009.
