An Evening With Kinfolk

I was lucky enough to be invited by Luisa Brimble to be a guest at the Kinfolk Dinner this week. Set in the beautiful grounds of Glenmore House, 75 of us dined at huge long timber tables as the sun set over the property, among jasmine and tables laden with wild flowers and beeswax candles.…

Savour Your Success

This could also be titled Stop To Smell The Roses or Celebrate The Wins.  It’s a concept that has been around forever, so I’m not sprouting anything new here. What I am seeing however, is a shift away from this. A ‘lack of time’ or an unwillingness to celebrate the milestones in our lives, as…

Talking Broadly – Melissa Ambrosini

I had the pleasure of initiating Melissa Ambrosini into the art of Vedic Meditation this year. Mel had practiced many forms of meditation for years, so was hardly new to the concept, and we took her practice to a whole new level. (See her testimonial on learning with me here).

Do You Have Needs?

Meditator Rick Rubin

Rick Rubin is an incredibly interesting guy. He certainly challenges what it means to be an internationally acclaimed music producer who doesn’t ever use a sound board and who works with the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye. He refuses and has so his whole life, to ever work from an office, and forcing Columbia Records…

Recipe – Gluten Free Ricotta Hotcakes with Gravalax

We love a recipe that can be used for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or even shrunk down into mini bites for entertaining, and this recipe is that. It’s simple and quick to prepare and make, and there are so many variations you can do as a topper aside from gravalax and creme fraiche, just use…

Give it up folks, for life.

Something we recently read by the talented Leo Babula of Zen Habits, we agree wholeheartedly. “This is the only response that life deserves: overjoyed applause. This morning, wherever you are, whatever life has given you, take a moment to really appreciate this gift, and applaud. I mean, actually applaud. We often not only take life…
