Doing absolutely nothing sounds simple, but it’s actually the hardest thing in the world. Why? Because we live in a time and a place where we have so many options. We can watch TV, go on the internet, scroll through Instagram, talk on the phone, eat food, drink alcohol – anything to pull us away from the present moment, numb our feelings and prevent us from experiencing the here and now. It’s the here and now that we’re all terrified of experiencing. It makes us uneasy.Read More
Meditation is one of those things that once you’ve carved out a daily practice, you can’t imagine not having it in your life. But before that, when your desire to catch some OMs is born of reading books like Eat Pray Love or anything by Louise Hay, and looking at calming images of people sitting poised against a lush green forestry backdrop, meditation can often be something that brings up an inner battle of excuses.Read More
Do you ever feel stuck? Like you don’t know what the next step is? Like you don’t know which path to take?
Perhaps you feel stuck in a situation that you completely dislike and you feel you have no options and no way out. Or maybe you know that there is something else out there for you, but you can’t seem to find the courage to make a change.

The first time I really understood how much I needed alone time was in high school. It was school holidays and I had spent a few days hopping around between my friend’s houses, bag full of enough clothes to last me indefinitely. It was early evening and I was hungover and tired.

I called my dad to come and pick me up, went home and shut myself away in my room with a movie (How Stella Got Her Groove Back) and a whole satay chicken pizza to myself.Read More
For the past few weeks I’ve wanted to do nothing besides crawl under the covers of my bed and sleep. And watch a little Gossip Girl. And then sleep some more. Feeling I was on the risk of becoming a recluse, and having Chuck/Blair/Serena/Nate/Dan story lines showing up in my dreams, I realised it was time to assess things.
My life is feeling crowded, and instead of saying no to commitments and putting in place necessary boundaries, I’ve just had the urge to hide away from it all.
As my health has improved, I’ve taken on project after project and commitment after commitment – excited because I now have the ability to work for longer than an hour without making a juice, and I can actually leave the house. However, after lying so low on Gerson Therapy for the past two years, I didn’t realise how much I would feel the effects of a rapid life re-integration.Read More
