Never think of giving something up ~ always look for what you will gain


So . . . how do you look at life?

Do you see what you can't have? . . . or . . . Do you see what you already have or have gained?

Even as we land on Shove Tuesday as Lent ~ we can explore what we have too much in-excess of and what we might make a conscious choice of 'Giving up for Lent' ~ whatever that might be . . . chocolate, alcohol, caffeine, smoking, meat, eggs. 

But it's good to look deeper into how even having a break away from something you always have (or sometimes habitually have too much of . . .) that concept alone is good for our mind, body & soul.

Review . . . Reflect . . . Reset . . .

A sense of appreciation of other things . . . enjoying more savoury and less sweets/chocolates . . . the ability to take stock of our food choices or lifestyle and make changes for the better. . . the ability to take a break and re-evaluate diet/lifestyle . . . the ability to be able to break any poor habits and re-gain our sense of inner control. 

There are so many gains and personal benefits that we will receive on making any changes in our lives, even if only for the 40 days of Lent . . . it all starts somewhere, and just like New Year for it's resolutions, Lent is another time to create positive change and have a fresh new approach.

So we invite you to make changes today, which may even benefit you for a lifetime or even just for 40 days out of your life. Small steps make big changes in the long run of life 👍

Look up through the tree of life and see what you may discover along the way.

Be in Love

 Sharing this beautiful poem today from . . .  Love by Donna Ashworth

Be In Love

Be in love with your life
every minute
it's your trail
blaze it and blaze it brightly

Be in love with yourself
think of how you'd like to be loved
and make it happen
show the way for others

Be in love with your partner
really love them 
as if there were no tomorrow
and all you have is 
right here right now

Be in love with your home
never mind the mess
the things you don't like
pour some sparkle
on what you have

Be in love with your family
none are perfect
but they are your blood
and your history
you need each other in this life

Be in love with your job
look at all the positives
and be thankful you have it
if you can't
then change it
life's too short

Be in love with being in love
create that life
full of friendship
stolen kisses
unnecessary hugs
food for the soul

Retreat . . . Replenish . . . Refresh . . . Recharge . . .


We all need to take precious time out of our busy schdeules and diaries and make time for ourselves.

Self-care time is an essential aspect of being able to maintian our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sense of wellbeing. 

So what do you do to relax? Does it recharge you or replenish you?

Going to a retreat gives you time and space away from your normal environment, a space to be, a place to switch off from all that is going on at home and at work . . . it gives you time to deeply re-connect with yourself, to discover new layers within you . . . time out . . . time to be.

Maybe join us on one of our Yoga and Sacred Sound retreats this year ~ in the UK or France.

No prior experience necessary ~ we warmly invite you to simply dive into something new for you to enjoy.
