L E T T E R from Jo – The Advantage in the Reality of What Is

I was in a situation recently where someone didn’t like what was being shared and even though there was compelling data and difficult-to-dispute facts they quite emphatically rejected the reality of the situation. In the end, we created a mini industry of work and energy around their way of the world and then re-sharing the…

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- Exploring What’s Next

Have you noticed a truly sharp difference in how you consume and what you consume once in quarantine? Is it making you really think, like me, what was I truly spending my money on before? I am questioning more acutely the WHY behind my purchases. I considered myself a pretty conscious consumer, but I didn’t…

L E T T E R from Jac – All The Dreams

There is a Jewish story, that is also told in many traditions with varying tones. The essence of it is that a poor tailor from the shtetl has a dream that there is a treasure buried beneath a bridge leading to a huge castle. The poor tailor packs a bag and set off to the…

“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.

L E T T E R from Jac – The Truth of Resilience and Innovation

This situation at the moment is really dismantling a lot isn’t it. Us as people, our friends, our family, our societal rules and conditioning. Our ideas, our insistence on things being a certain way. Our rigidity, our stickiness to things that don’t really count when push comes to shove. I remember recently reading a scientist…

L E T T E R from Jo – Priorities Are A Deal Breaker

It’s interesting that until I get really bloody clear about what is important to me (and this is usually via a helpful life lesson) I keep continuing to fragment my attention. It can be easy to make the list…  family, friends, other loved ones, health and so on… but how does this play out day…

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 – Embracing The Gaps

I woke up yesterday, and for a brief moment, forgot all that had been happening. I stretched, I listened to a bird. I reached out to put my hand on Arran’s chest, whilst he still slept. And then it hit me, all of it. The big unknown that lies head, to fight for life around…

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…
