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…

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…

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…

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?

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…

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?

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…
