L E T T E R from Jac – Rewiring Ourselves

A daily meditation practice is like taking a huge tangled ball of wool (our minds) and slowly, piece by piece untangling it. We can then couple this with education, some self understanding and wiring in of new patterns and actions that are aligned with our personal truth, and then begin to live in a higher grade sense. We…

L E T T E R from Jac – Being Love

Ram Dass speaks, “You are loved just for being who you are, just for existing. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. Your shortcomings, your lack of self-esteem, physical perfection, or social and economic success – none of that matters. No one can take this love away from you, and it will always…

L E T T E R from Jac – From The Archives

I am moving through over 1000 Letters and hand choosing which ones make it to the Letters Edition 1 collection that we are soon to self publish. It’s been a behemoth task, one I certainly underestimated. Within them, I found this little gem, and I wanted to share it with you again, in case you…

L E T T E R from Jac – And A Gold Star For You

Last week felt like a big Letter writing week of motivation and productivity. Which is nice and I hope for some of you helpful. Most of the time I feel like I am writing these Letters to myself, to learn, understand and motivate my own mind.  What’s also excellent is falling apart and putting yourself…

L E T T E R from Jo – The Magical Power Of Encouragement

In all the hustle and bustle of life and trying to do our best and be our best we sometimes forget that it can be the little things, the simple things that can make an extraordinary difference. We sometimes believe that it is the big statements, the complex experiences, the hard-to-do exercises, the huge effort…

L E T T E R from Jac – Preparation

What is it that you are working on right now? Is it your meditation practice? Is it healthier eating? Is it a new project? Do you want to begin to spend more time in nature, be more present? Today’s Letter stems from yesterday’s letter and is the next step in achieving what you want. Preparation…

L E T T E R from Jac – What Do You Want

I was walking through a national park yesterday in the almost dark, for it was so early, breath chilly, with my friend Nina. She’s a full time writer, and I am a novice, so I take her advice on writing seriously. As we trod through broken gum leaves, branches snapping underfoot and navigated slippery rocks…

L E T T E R from Jac – Navigating Out Of A Rut

Is anyone else in a massive rut right now with their work? Feeling stuck and unmotivated? Welcome to The Rut. It’s a crap place to be in regards to creativity and productivity. I wanted to share the few things I do to launch myself out of ruts.  – GET FOCUSSED. I write lists of what…

L E T T E R from Jac – Staying Sane

In Zen, the teachings are centered around everything being Zen, nothing more special than anything else. The hierarchy is stripped out from ‘work’ and ‘life’ and equal importance is placed on all tasks. Cooking, preparing a meal, doing ones duties and tasks – with presence. And right now with the state of the world, that…

L E T T E R from Jac – Prioritising What’s Important

The intellect is a fascinating thing. It only knows everything it has learned to this minute. It’s brilliant for problem solving, and wonderful when paired with creative thinking. It’s busting to be used and sometimes comes out of the gate overriding intuition and heart. I love teaching in our workshops tools that are applicable and…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jo – Priorities Maketh The Boundary

There is nothing like challenging times to bring sharply in to focus the things that are important, truly important to us. It used to irk me that I always seemed to need to experience a crisis to wake myself up to this kind of crystal clarity… Why yes, you are very important to me, what…

L E T T E R from Jac – Opening Our Windows

Sri M said something beautiful in a lecture I saw in London, and I might well have a few words out here but believe it was, ‘Grace is always available to us, will you open your windows to it? It’s like a breeze that wants to come through’. When we are stressed, grace goes. Intuition…

L E T T E R from Jac – Three Months From Now

I was asked to imagine my life three months from now by a healer/therapist I have been working with. I want to invite you to do the same, project forward to mid September and sit with exactly who you wish to be in three months time. In three months time we will be in a…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jo – Get Calm and Then Carry On

When we are stressed and succumb to our animal nature we become self-centred. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING is happening at us. We see it all as a threat … to us, it’s personal. When we see a threat, particularly something personal we will react accordingly – defend, attack, withdraw. Automatically, it all comes pouring…

L E T T E R from Jac – Check Your Self

Right now there is a huge shift happening in the world, and let’s be frank, thank goodness. It can be hard to know within this time, when we are overwhelmed and checking out, when we are in need of rest, or just shying away and putting our heads under the covers out of fear and…

L E T T E R from Jac – Exploring Contemplative Thinking

I’ve come back across from pottering through some of our boxes The New Farmers Almanac, by Greenhorns, a completely delightful book. It’s a homage to time, to farming, to the seasons, and our connection to nature as a whole. I had forgotten how much I loved it, and promptly ordered the 2019 (2020 still pending…

L E T T E R from Jac – Opening Intuition

Have you ever noticed that when your intuition speaks to you, it’s a physical feeling. It’s like a channeling, a vibration, that is then followed by thought. We call it ‘gut instinct’ for a reason, for it does not come from our thinking mind. How many times have you said to yourself when something went…

L E T T E R from Jac – Not Taking Anything For Granted

I think the last few months has taught us not to take as much as we may have previously for granted, but how can we transition so we don’t forget? What are the steps to ensuring this sheer insane roller coaster called our lives seeps into every cell of us, so that we can truly…

L E T T E R from Jac – Expanding Creativity

What blocks are in the way of your creativity right now? What is stopping you from expressing yourself creatively on a daily basis? Is it self doubt? Is it fatigue? Is it fear? Are you not getting enough sleep? Or eating properly? Are you committing to things you know don’t serve you? Are you not putting enough time aside for creativity?  Identify the…

L E T T E R from Jac – The Complexity of Being Human

Being a human is a very complex thing. We are either moving from our heart, acknowledging our privilege, sharing our emotional, physical and spiritual wealth with those in need, or, we are begrudging, lazy, and resentful. Now I manage to be both, a lot. Yo-yoing from one to the other. I have moments of deep…

L E T T E R from Jac – True Compassion

People that have truly encountered the darkness of their own soul, I enjoy a lot. There is a rawness, an honesty, a humility. For I’ve had so many dark nights of the soul, so many encounters with pain, terror and unjustness over my own life, that it has made all the joys, the graces and…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Not Running From Pain

Tonglen is a Buddhist practice of working with suffering – ours, and everyone else’s at every opportunity. It is a practice of feeling all the feelings, and amongst them finding compassion for others, and for ourselves on every level. It can sound kind of grim at first, but is a practice to actually soften us…

L E T T E R from Jac – What We Think

You know the saying, ‘you are what you eat’, well we are also ‘we are what we think’. So today, place your attention on the quality of the thoughts you ENGAGE with. We will of course always have crappy thoughts and bad thoughts and all that, they’re impossible to escape a lot of the time.…

L E T T E R from Jo – Same, Same But Different

I love the fact that I change. Some days may be more obvious than others and some days may seem more regressive than progressive change but it is all still change. I am different. I am not who I was just a few moments ago. How much I change and the direction is very much…

L E T T E R from Jac – On Resistance and Flow – Part 2

So back to this idea of the Reward System. (you can read the previous Letter on Resistance and Flow in our JOURNAL. A lot of the time we think life isn’t going the way I want, so I’ve done something bad now I’m being punished. But also then I did something good. So where’s my reward?…

L E T T E R from Jac – On Resistance and Flow – Part 1

What I have learnt about myself is that I sort of held on to some old Catholic beliefs that it was actually a punishment system. So ‘karma’ meant ‘you’re being punished’. Studying in India though, I kept being told,  “What, no, karma doesn’t mean that actually, that’s a sliver of its meaning.” Karma means an…

L E T T E R from Jac – Follow Truth

It’s so tempting to want to look to others to figure out what to do. I have always admired Krishnamurti’s teachings, for he proposes we need to carve out our own path, and learn through experience. “I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion,…

L E T T E R from Jo – Note To Self

I know that change is happening always, it’s the only constant. I believe this, I feel it to be true deep in my bones and yet when I come up against it, *insert surprise-face emoji here*, it’s as though it’s my first time. What I’m beginning to realise is that my skills at accepting then…

L E T T E R from Jac – Love Everything

One of my favourite teachers Ram Dass, was taught by his guru above all other teachings to ‘love everything’. It became Ram Dass’s primary teaching also. I’m not sure if you’re noticing this, with the same level of delight that I am, but everyone feels far more loving than in regular life. I am having…

L E T T E R from Jac – Eliminating the non-essential

‘Misogi’ is a Japanese term meaning ‘eliminating the non essential’. Editing out what’s not important or relevant anymore. In the Great Reset that we are all involuntarily yet nonetheless taking, we have a big juicy opportunity to edit our lives, and continue to. Some questions for you to take on with presence and care. What…

L E T T E R from Jac – Stormy Weather

There are so many storms emotionally for us all at the moment. Big fronts come bearing down on us, unexpected as there was emotional blue sky only an hour before. Warm updrafts we didn’t expect from small lovely shared moments of human connection. Clear tranquil skies and suddenly it’s raining sideways.  How can we protect…

L E T T E R from Jac – Resistance

On Friday I hosted our live online The DOJO, 90 minute session on Resistance and Surrender, and we explored many verses of the Tao Te Ching to unravel and enrich these two concepts. I am absolutely loving The DOJO, the sessions are spacious enough to really get into the nuts and bolts, and then for our Black Belts we go even deeper in our…

L E T T E R from Jac – A Planet Sabbatical

Yesterday Arran and I bumped into a friend Dan, who owns a cafe here in Byron with his wife, and we chatted hospitality and pivoting and all the new kinds of conversations that life brings up now. Dan said something really interesting, which Arran and I have been discussing, which was wouldn’t it be amazing…

L E T T E R from Jac – What’s None Of My Business

In truth, this has been a really vulnerable time for me, I’ve shared more than before, heart of my sleeve, processing as I was going through it. I’m sure a psychologist would recommend resolving everything before you put it on a plate for the public, but something otherworldly felt like it was guiding me to take this approach. It wasn’t…

L E T T E R from Jac – Sweet Joys

The feeling of getting out of government quarantine was truly something else. I have truly realised how relative time is to our experience. Two weeks can feel like forever, or it can go by in a snap. 7 weeks ago I was back here in Australia, world was our oyster and I had the most…

L E T T E R from Jac – Learning’s From A Pandemic Part 4

Hands up who wants resilience? Hands up who also would prefer to not do the dirty work to get it? Resilience is like fitness, you have to do the exercise to get it.  I used to study karate, and I was terrible at it, but VERY enthusiastic. My poor Sensei! Karate is incredibly repetitive, it’s through the constant…

L E T T E R from Jac – Learning’s From A Pandemic Part 2

We have been through some stuff in our lives, Arran and I. For some it would mount up a life time of challenge, for others, our challenges would be a drop in their pond. The thing is through the last 6 weeks, when it all really hit the fan, it was in essence like ripping…

L E T T E R from Jac – Learning’s From A Pandemic Part 1

I thought I would share some of the beauty in what I am learning personally, and what I am learning from others, over a mini series of Letters. My favourite question at the moment when talking with people is ‘what is the one thing more valuable than any other that you want to take with…

L E T T E R from Jac – To Live A Simple Life

Over 4 years ago, Arran and I gave away and sold almost all we owned, including all our furniture, and clothing and all the paraphernalia that adult and family life brings with it, and moved to a little furnished holiday cottage on a national park. It was a little experiment it took a few years…

L E T T E R from Jac – A Spiritual Hurricane Lamp

Anne Morrow Lindbergh writes in her beautiful book Gift From the Sea, “I want in fact – to borrow from the language of the saints – to live “in grace” as much of the time as possible. I am not using this term in a strictly theological sense. By grace I mean an inner harmony,…

L E T T E R from Jo – Alright, Let’s Get Curious

It’s interesting, I love to learn. I love the possibilities, the fresh thinking that stretch the boundaries of my mind and help me to see things differently. Expanding my world to make it feel bigger than before. However, I have recently worked out that what I really love is learning on my own terms. I decide…

L E T T E R from Jac – To Despair Or Not Despair

The Mother, Aurobindo’s teaching partner teaches beautifully on despair and it has been something I have really learnt into. Her thinking is that we only lean into despair if we have lost our faith in nature’s path. “One who has faith even if only in himself can face all difficulties, all circumstances, even the most…

L E T T E R from Jo – Back to Love

When I am feeling any of those uncomfortable emotions – anger, frustration, sadness I can be spiky, hard, tight, stuck (you get the idea) and holding on only intensifies the experience for me and those around me. Letting go can become tricky, there’s a justification to bathe in the righteousness, wallowing seems to satisfy my…

L E T T E R from Jac – Can You See The Moon?

Trauma is such an interesting experience, the brain seeming to be sliced into multiple parts. You can go through the motions through one part, then another section is panicking, another part numb and another part watching the whole thing take place with curiosity and intrigue. It’s a true observer based experience, which is in truth…

L E T T E R from Jo – Wield Your Power!

Yes, we have power, always. Never forget this, ever. I do. Often and I need reminding again, often. I temporarily slip in to a state of feeling powerless, usually when people and situations aren’t following the script in my head… Remembering where your power lies is essential even if you need constant reminding. This is…

L E T T E R from Jac – What Will You Honor

A lot of students that I teach and mentor are having the exact same challenge right now, caught between agonising decisions about how to get through this time at the moment. Furloughing, firing staff. Trying to stave off bankruptcy or attempting to pivot their entire business model. Within this there is not a lot of…

L E T T E R from Jac – Inspiration for Success

Isn’t it an amazing time? In the thick of all the awfulness – all the paradigms and societal beliefs we held, are being stripped back. The house of cards realities that we held onto, are falling, and fast. And it’s an opportunity to truly re-wire our thinking. I loved that my three hat chef uncle,…

L E T T E R from Jac – A Heart At Peace

“Empty your mind of all thoughts, let your heart be at peace. Watch the turmoil of beings, but contemplate their return.   Each seperate being in the universe, returns to the common source. Returning to the source is serenity.   If you don’t realise the source, you stumble in confusion and sorrow. When you realise…

L E T T E R from Jac – What Happens Today Is A Choice

At the moment I can feel myself firming up, more grounded every day. Becoming stronger, more resilient, and I can feel it in our students. The storm is still hitting, and we can’t see that far ahead, but we are learning how to sail through it regardlessly. We are unsure where land is, and when…

L E T T E R from Jac – The Choice We Get To Make

We can truly lean into the current situation of the pandemic as a way to discover the truth of ourselves. We might be shocked at what we discover, having told ourselves a string of stories that loosely quilt together a reality we now find filled with holes, threadbare. I’ve been through a lot of crisis in my life, and sadly, people’s ability to divide…

L E T T E R from Jac – Resuming Daily Letters In A Crisis

After being swamped with requests, and being still unable to work out exactly how to segregate out database, I am throwing it all to the wind and just returning to Daily Letters until we can work it out! Open to all help, we use Mailchimp for any special friends that get how to add this…

L E T T E R from Jo – Create, Maintain, Edit is Our Process

Nature is all about evolving, moving forward, growing and changing. These movements can happen through creation or they can happen via destruction. When we actively create and continually edit, refine and weed out things that are no longer relevant and by this I mean genuinely no longer relevant at the very truth of us then…

L E T T E R from Jac – Panicking

When everyone around us is either panicking, or dismissing heavily everyone that is panicking, it’s hard to stay on solid ground. I remember when the global financial crisis hit in 2008, and I lost everything, including my marriage. It was admittedly a truly shitty time. Everyone was in a blind panic, and I lost 70%…

L E T T E R from Jo Simpson- Three Things I’m Contemplating This Week…

I was talking with one of my very wise teachers recently about the lost art of contemplation. Mulling things over, being reflective, thoughtful – it’s not the pointy, sharp parts of thinking but the soft gentle almost fuzzy parts. There may not be an answer or a nice and tidy conclusion, just a rumination. I…

L E T T E R – EDIT Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Today before journaling I want you to sit for a moment with your eyes closed and ask, what does the person I wish to be, to feel, to experience daily look like? Then sit with this and open your eyes and begin to journal: How far from that am I currently? What are the blocks…

L E T T E R – DEPTH Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week’s intention is DEPTH. I know this sounds strange at first reading, but I feel for it so strongly. It means to feel everything deeply, to engage in every moment with presence and depth. To taste all the things, to really see, to feel, to listen. To lie in your bed deeply comfortable. To…

L E T T E R – COMPASSION Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

It’s a volatile time on the planet right now. As we scroll through horrific images one after another, anger brews and burns, and naturally, finding an outlet for that anger feels important. Anger is an important human emotion no doubt, but can also deplete compassion and our understanding of any situation. Of which we will…

Energy is a huge focus for me always, through my meditation, yoga, karate, and qi-gong training as well as understanding energy states throughout the day, and distributing my energy as best I can for maximum enjoyment but also productivity.

L E T T E R from Jac – ACCEPTANCE Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Someone sent me a link to a very high profile guy on Instagram, who was literally SCREAMING at millions of followers that they must force, grind to make it happen, to work until they break. It was utter fear-mongering, ego appealing to ego. He spoke of how ‘right now someone is working harder than you’…

L E T T E R – COSMIC Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Do you sometimes feel life is moving so fast you are losing your connection to the whole? That daily we and all life forms turn for energy to a giant start? Do you forget that your brain has, as many synapses as there are stars in the galaxy? That when you look at a star,…

L E T T E R – WONDER Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Wonder is such an important part of life, and with so much on we rarely take time to engage with it. Ironically, it doesn’t take up too much time, and to wonder does not cost a cent. We were out the other night, and this little baby was completely mind blown by the twinkling fairy…
Read More +

L E T T E R – REST Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week’s intention is a big one for me, and I am going to guess, for all of us. Maybe it’s the time of year? Full moon that’s just passed? Who knows, but rest is always, always required. We push ourselves so hard these days, we apply a-type thinking even to our days off, and…

L E T T E R – FUN Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

I don’t know about you guys, but it’s been such an intense year to date, that it’s time to have some fun. I try to have as much fun as I can every week, but sometimes everything gets a little too ‘serious’ and it’s time to reboot. I also find in self-development and spirituality, it…

L E T T E R – KINDNESS Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Spotting hypocrisy is a sport these days, and I get it, it’s everrrryywhere so is an enticing pastime with plenty of fodder. If we are ourselves, perfect humans, in continued and complete integrity, perhaps we could comment voraciously. But none of us are. I’m not saying let’s stay quiet, not speak our minds, or call…

L E T T E R – UNCOVER Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

I think I have seen the phrase ‘I’m so triggered by this!!!!!’ on social media lately more than any other, accompanied by a lot of blame and finger-pointing. Completely unhelpful, and useless. Shouting that we are being triggered, doesn’t heal the trauma. Announcing our trauma to the world, without doing any internal work, gains nothing.…

L E T T E R – CLARITY Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Clarity, having it, bringing it forward in every moment and communicating it is like drinking a big cool glass of water. Clarity is what flows under our incessant confusing thought. The deeper natural intelligence we all have is only blocked by our getting caught in our thinking, which feels real to us, but is not.…

L E T T E R – GENTLE HOLDING Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week’s intention is a big one. We all know the confusing experience of having two seemingly opposing views that we can’t find peace within. When thoughts about something seem to clash as we want both views to work, but it’s easier to just take a side. At the moment, with politics and what’s happening…

L E T T E R – PRESENCE Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Presence is an obvious one given the Retreat I just wrapped! It was literally all about training the mind to be present, to what the mind perceives as ‘good’ and also what the mind perceives as ‘bad’. We spend so much of our time being distracted and running away from what we view unpleasant but…
Read More +

L E T T E R – ACCEPTANCE Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week journal prompts for acceptance are: Where am I resisting acceptance in myself? Where am I resisting acceptance in others? What part of my life am I deeply resentful and unaccepting of? Is it a piece of my past? Or something occurring now? What would life look like if I accepted it fully, on…

L E T T E R – PAUSE Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week let’s set an intention to take some time to be present, to take pause. The energy in London and across Europe is slightly panicked with Summer having completed and work and school back in full swing. In speaking with our students and friends in the USA the same energy is there. And in…

Let’s get ultra clear on the week ahead and set ourselves up with intention on crystal clear communication. Some journaling prompts; Where in my life do I acknowledge I am really clear?

This week let’s place our intention on peace.  Some points to Journal on: Where in my life am I naturally finding peace? Where am I experiencing turbulence?

L E T T E R – TRUTH Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Something I am addressing at the moment is Truth. Join me!! Things to look into this week: Where are we kidding ourselves? Hiding the whole truth from ourselves? Where are we being dishonest with others, even if the intention is ‘good’? Where do we see lying as harmless? Do we truly think this is true?…
Read More +

L E T T E R – TRUTH Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This is going to be a gritty one! Once we realise how many lies we tell ourselves, let alone others, it’s like a Pandora’s box! First of all, if we were all utterly grounded in reality and not living through our views, opinions, prejudices and biases, we would always be grounded in truth. But the…

L E T T E R – INTEGRITY Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Integrity was once beautifully described to me as doing the right thing even if no one was looking. I feel very strongly that in the digital age this concept is even more important for us, as so many hide behind the curtain of anonymity. Bullying, shaming, and hate can be used, without accountability. Getting even…

L E T T E R – AUTHENTICITY Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week, we will place our awareness and our attention on Authenticity. Ooooh this is such a juicy one.
