Being Honest

This is a guest blog from Tim my beloved life partner, who plays an essential part in Secret Garden both in the background between groups and supporting me and co-facilitating during them. Tim wanted to contribute on this subject that, as you will see, is close to his heart. Read more about Tim at Being…

Gratitude

We all have many things it is so easy to be grateful for - food on the table, shelter, a society more safe and stable than many. A beautiful practice is to recall on waking each morning some of the thing you are already grateful for. This will make real shifts in your vibration very…

Death, Loss and Endings

The bottom line This life and the apparent creation everywhere cannot be possessed. ‘You’ are not separate from anything that appears in manifestation. Energy expresses as every single possibility and it is constantly changing. Energy is a shapeshifter, a dancer. So everything you love, everything you want to keep, everyone you want to hold to…

The natural, instinctive, healthy response to an invasion of a boundary is…

Burn through the myths you have been mis-sold and watch your life flower!

Burn through the myths about love, intimacy and connection and watch your life flower! You have been mis-sold! We are not educated well at all about love or freedom in our mainstream culture. What this lack of understanding does is create huge amounts of necessary pain & suffering and many spoiled lives. Let’s bust some very common and…
