Keep Yourself Updated

What can I say? I didn’t see it coming, and it happened at the worst possible time. Last month during my holiday, I was preparing to enter a 10 day silent meditation retreat which meant 10 days of no communication or technology at all. And just a couple hours beforehand I found out that my […]

On Worship and Idealism

This has been a bit of a phenomena lately in my practice – people coming in with challenges that relate to worship, either ‘worshipping’ or being ‘worshipped’. Let me elaborate. It’s actually a very common theme. I’m sure there is something or someone you may be worshipping or have worshipped. A religious belief perhaps, a […]


On Intuition

Welcome to my latest blog post, this time on Intuition. I thought I’d elaborate a little on the subject, after I was interviewed about it on 89.7 East Side Radio last week.

Chinese Medicine Face Reading

Don’t we all just love a bit of people watching? We can literally spent hours looking at other people, we are fascinated by them, what they do, how they dress, what they look like. Talking specifically about the human face however, we even use social media forums like ‘Face’book continuing this fascination we have, through […]


Understanding Yin & Yang

Recently there’s been an increased interest to understand the concepts of Yin & Yang. Whether at the weekly meditation workshops I run, or in my private practice, there’ve been more questions than usual so I thought I’d address what it’s all about in this post. Most people know or have at least heard of Yin […]


On Being ‘Good’

This is a topic I’ve been burning to write about. You, and all of us, fall prey to it : the notion of being or ‘becoming’ good.  Too often do we feel we could be and do better. You may have gotten on the path of self development yourself and are enjoying the wonderful fruits of […]

(Whether you were from the neighbourhood or just coming through, you made it […]
