Dear Crew and friends,

I was gloriously trapped under the basement stairwell roof as the thunder rumbled ceaselessly and the rain threw itself down and washed the basil I had potted yesterday clean of debris.

It was the early dawn rainbow that drew me out earlier than I have been outdoors since I moved into the house - just as the rain started again. oh THIS is what I have longed for. To feel the lightning blast the sky, the eye drenched in the powerful picture of the clearing sky: from a heavy, pregnant grey to a light, light baby blue with clouds of wool floating rapidly apart in many shades of white.

The rain transformed into a sharp hail that came and then stopped - abruptly. In refreshed and awakened senses I walked the lawn and beheld the terrace covered in baubles of crystalline, temporary, firm little smile-inducing drops, prettily and throughly decorating all the grounds. The descriptive words came liquidly to me. Oh this new moon of June, it doth not come quietly. It shook, rumbled, thundered and lit the sky with bangs and claps, hailing a new fresh month on Earth.

With Love,

March Newsletter

It got me reflecting on the rhythm and pace in which many of our work lives run. Many of us live with a time constriction that we either imposed upon ourselves or was imposed on us by our circumstances. What if we did not retire at 65? What if we ''retired'' at 30? What if we study at any age, work or not work at any age? I wonder what would happen if I saw each day as the first of eternity? If life is not limited by an idea of time then perhaps the pace and rhythm we are maintaining towards a defined timeline can change and we can look upon what rhythm and pace and activities best serves us and others RIGHT NOW where we are in life. Just this morning I read in a script: the only place where time is eternal is in the now. How relaxing that is to me.

April Newsletter : EMF Care and More

Everything is energy, and as a yogini and practitioner aiming to master my own energy, I have been drawn to look into the modern situation on the radiation emitted by the technology that we so depend on. Not all of this exposure is beneficial for us, and in looking into devices that help balance, counter-balance or even transmute the negative to the positive I have started with one product and company, that came recommended to me by a student, where I have found the systems to work well.
