This book provoked a lot of reflection in me, not least because I was reading it whilst also on my own soulful adventure. It covers Liz Gilbert’s journey to heal her emotional pain and depression, discovering new and wonderful things about herself, finding friendships and love in the process, as she spends a year living and travelling around… Read More Book Review: Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Brigid: most popularly known as St Brigid of Kildare, a patron saint of Ireland, though many believe the saint is a Christianisation of the goddess Brigid, a member of the Tuatha De Danaan. As they share many attributes and similarities in their stories, and the same sacred day (February 1st), it seems obvious to me that there… Read More Brigid
I’m sitting in the sunny garden of the Auckland hostel where I am staying. It is a beautiful day – hot, yet peaceful. A few other travellers chat softly in the garden, which backs onto Western Park with its lovely expanse of trees and greenery. I’m contemplating my next moves: decisions which have caused me more… Read More Lots of sunshine and no rules!
Although I have felt a connection to the Indigo Adult/Children ‘phenomena’, I have actually only read a handful of books about it. Or, rather, books that solely focus on the Indigos. Olena M. A. Gill’s The Indigo Survival Guide was a very interesting read that deepened my understanding of Indigos and their lives on Earth, but… Read More Book Review: Indigo Adults by Kabir Jaffe & Ritama Davidson

So, it is a new year. I haven’t set any specific resolutions. Rather, I have decided that this year I will continue to focus my energies on getting to know myself, being fully authentic, and living from the heart. More and more, I am unlearning old thought patterns and re-learning to follow my heart. She… Read More It’s your heart.
I read so many books (quite a few of which I review on here) and I absolutely love to discuss them: What I’ve learned, what I’ve questioned, what I’ve been opened up to, what has comforted me, empowered me… So, I thought it would be great fun to start the Indigo Gaia Book Club. This… Read More The Indigo Gaia Book Club
So, a week and a half ago I finished my job in the pastoral support team in a secondary school. Now, I am on the final countdown to New Zealand. As I said before (read it here), I feel a little daunted and anxious about the prospect of ‘entering the unknown’, but mostly I feel… Read More “I want to see mountains again, Gandalf…”
I’ve always liked to write a diary or journal. I don’t do it religiously every day, but I do it as and when I need to. It gives me space in which to consider my hopes, dreams and fears; and the act of physically writing helps me to externalise them, affording me better perspective.
