I was at dinner recently with a male friend of mine. We were talking about patterns of emotional behaviour that kept showing up in his romantic relationships, and how they were derailing him completely. “You’re doing the work”, I told him. “You just have to keep moving through the process, uncovering the layers until you get to the bottom. That’s where the gold is”.Read More
I used to wake up at 6am each morning. I would then meditate, exercise, do an enema, oil pull, journal, dry body brush, juice and eat breakfast. All before starting work at 9am. My morning routine was epic, and it served me well for a time. However, after a while I started to notice that my morning routine felt like an obligation rather than something I was doing out of love. If I slipped up on something, I would feel bad about it. When my body was yearning for extra sleep, I would lie in bed feeling guilty for not ticking everything off my morning routine list.Read More

I want to address the belief that embracing a healthy, wholesome lifestyle means that you also have to adopt a certain persona. This was something I discussed on my recent tour, and it’s a topic that struck a chord with many people. When we start making changes to our lifestyle, many of us also buy into the idea that true wellness and conscious living must exclude all the superficial things we may have loved in the past.Read More

Whether it’s long lustrous locks or a cute pixie crop, great hair is usually pretty high up on most women’s beauty wish-lists.

Our skin may be the largest organ in our bodies, but it’s also the last place to receive nutrients. So, if your skin is supple, and looks all dewy and glowing, it generally means that your insides are in pretty good shape. After all of the travel I’ve been doing recently, my skin wasn’t faring too well. It was dry and breaking out. This meant it was time for some serious attention in the form of hydration.Read More

A week ago I did a 48-hour I did a 48-hour juice cleanse. Nothing but juice (and a couple of green smoothies) for two whole days.
After posting about my efforts on Instagram, I had several people asking me to clarify why I’d need to do a cleanse when my I’m already so clean. The answer to this is two-fold. First, I’d just returned from three weeks of travel. As much as I love travelling, I also know that it can take a toll on our health if we’re not careful. My body was telling me that it needed to detoxify all of the gunk it absorbed on airplanes. Second, everyone, no matter how clean their diet is, will benefit from giving their digestive system a short break.Read More
