Tune into you: Sept Retreat

Thank you to everyone who joined me yesterday at my Tune into you Retreat. It was ‘Phenomenal’ to quote a participant in our closing comments.

We dived deep into relaxing, physically, mentally and spiritually through Tibetan Singing Bowl Meditation

We nurtured and replenished our chakra system and allowed the bowls on our body to reach more deeply into our aches and pains

We invited the energy of joy towards us more fully and embodied how this might be for us in our lives everyday

We were thoroughly nourished and loved with Claire Whatley’s healing Buddha bowls, snacks and treats all day.

We explored the relationship between feeling guilt, fear of rejection and receiving fully and revealed deeper truths to help us all untangle and dissolve our difficulties, moving to a place of strength

We invited our ancestors to align and support us in our next steps, honouring their gifts and resources to draw on and access from now.

Then we closed the day noticing this beautiful view from our space together 📷

Thank you for being all you are, the brave, the sceptical, the hopes and dreams and the beauty in relaxing, permission to receive and leave a little lighter.

💫 The next ‘Tune into you’ Retreat is the 29th November. Each retreat is co-created with those attending, so no two retreats are the same, but the intent to ‘tune in’ and replenish is true every time 😉 Click here to find out more.

A few lines on duality

Duality is, according to much more well reputed beings* than I, the very centre of human experience.

Life and death. Good and evil. Hope and resignation. It coexists in every person. The conflict between who we are and who we want to be, the core of the human struggle. And yet so many deny our dualistic nature. If I post this picture of me jumping on a trampoline today having fun, to some it might mean that my son having several sulks minutes before hand could not be true. If the latter was true, the I must be posing for the camera. So if I am genuinely enjoying myself bouncing on the trampoline, then it definitely couldn’t mean the day was a real challenge, for the whole family. Or does it? Both are true. To be happy and sad from one moment to the next. Flowing through opposite emotions, this is duality. For every picture about love, there is heartbreak. For every picture celebrating, there is fear of failure. For every moment there is both. Light and dark. In my case, because I choose to be grateful for the positive stuff. But I’m also grateful for the terrible stuff, not immediately but eventually, it’s necessary to learn and leave an old pattern or behaviour behind where it belongs. It doesn’t mean that anger and fear don’t exist. It does mean I practice letting-go so that none of this duality stops me in my tracks. And sometimes it does. When those I love live with the assumption that we are only one way or another. It saddens me. And yet, I’m not here to change anyone. Just myself and whomever wants support making changes they know they want. I can unveil hidden thinking, re-connect unseen patterns beyond the every day and steer my way through for others to benefit. So I’m always enjoying the multi-faceted spectrum of human qualities that give us a rich life. And I don’t mean dollars and pounds. With love 💕
