For Earth Week we are resharing the podcast adaptation of our award-winning virtual reality experience, “Sanctuaries of Silence.” Acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton guides us in reconnecting with silence, what he describes is “...the poetics of space.”


Breath in the trees and if you can’t get to a forest let us ship the forest to you with our ancestral connection blend called Loamy Earth. This blend was specially mixed to bring back the feeling we got while visiting the Giant Redwood trees of Northern California. It’s great for grounding and ancestral connection work and smells like an ancient forest in a roller bottle. You can purchase our Loamy Earth essential oil blend on our website here:

Children Should Be Outside for 4-6 Hours Every Day — 1000 Hours Outside 01/30/2021

Children Should Be Outside for 4-6 Hours Every Day — 1000 Hours Outside

Children Should Be Outside for 4-6 Hours Every Day — 1000 Hours Outside If children can consume media through screens 1200 hours a year on average than the time is there and at least some of it can and should be shifted towards a more productive and healthy outcome. ​


Did you know that a 3-year old (top left image) and a 6-year old (top right image) have significantly different skeletal structure in their hands?! Notice the bones in the wrist of the 3-year old -- many of them are still mostly cartilage! Look at all the spaces in between the bones where muscles and tendons will change through the years. Even the difference between a 6-year old and a 14-year old (lower right) is huge!

Preschoolers have SO much development to do before they can write the way school-aged children or adults can!

Please do NOT stress if your preschooler does not want to write or draw. Some love it and some don't.

While they are growing, strengthen those little bones and muscles! Here are some great pre-writing, muscle-strengthening activities:

* painting, drawing, coloring
* playdough
* tearing and cutting
* gluing
* poking holes in things (try toothpicks and paper!)
* digging in dirt
* building with LEGOS, marble runs, or other blocks
* beading (try beads, cut straws, or even bobbins!)
* puzzles
* squeezing (try stress balls, squeezing water in a sponge, or using a pipette)
* picking up and throwing balls (use different sizes!)
* playing with toys (watch what their little fingers do when they pick up and move little cars, marbles, action figures, etc!)
These all strengthen and help develop little hands, muscles, and bones. When they are physically ready to write, it will be so much easier than if they were pushed when they didn't want to and weren't ready!


Sending some your way today and every day.

Image: @ohdagyo "Little fears cause anxiety, and big fears cause panic."— Chuang Tzu
When we work with the fearful mind, we will initially become afraid. However, at some point, if we open our eyes and our heart to the fearful mind and gently name it, “fear, fear, fear,” experiencing its energy as it moves through us, the whole sense of fear will shift and eventually become recognition: “Oh, fear, here you are again. I know you. How interesting that you’ve come.” Make friends with your fear.
From this foundation of loving awareness and acceptance we learn that it is okay to feel fear. Practicing meditation with patience and courage, we can gradually learn how to feel the floods of strong emotions—fear, grief—and to allow them to slowly release with mindfulness. We learn to see the endless mental stories that repeat over and over, and with the resources of mindfulness and compassion, to let them go, to steady the mind and return to the present. Befriending fear becomes a gateway to freedom, an invitation to live more fully with trust and love.

Loving-kindness is the first training of the Radiant Abodes. In the initial stages of this loving-kindness practice, students are asked to visualize themselves and repeat four or five traditional phrases of well-wishing, such as “May I be safe and healthy. May I be happy.” Along with the recitation, students are encouraged to sense how the quality of loving-kindness can be reflected in the body and heart.

The quality of loving-kindness develops as we repeat these phrases thousands of times, over days and months. Initially it can feel difficult to offer love to ourself: for many it can trigger feelings of shame and unworthiness. Yet it is a particularly powerful practice, because whatever we do not love in our own self, we will not accept in another. Buddhist teachings explain, “You can search the whole universe and not find any being more worthy of love than yourself.”

Some people find loving-kindness for themselves so hard, they begin their practice while visualizing a benefactor or loved one. This too is fine. The rule in loving-kindness practice is to follow the way that most easily opens your heart. Excerpt: "The Wise Heart"

We are in the midst of the greatest collective awakening.

We’ve been forced to look at our shadows + the shadows of our society in a way that we’ve never done before.

When we look at our shadows there is always pain, confusion, + rage. It’s a palpable energy you might feel in the form of anxiety, sleeplessness, or physical pain.

To wake up is not some esoteric “monk-like” experience. Waking up is simply expanding your consciousness, becoming aware, + having a realization of your own ego. An ego that keeps you repeating behaviors that began in childhood when these behaviors were a way of survival.

To leave this unconscious, autopilot, survival based state, we typically need to reach a breaking point. A bottom. This bottom pushes us to go inward. To pay attention. To shed the conditioning of the false self to embody the truth of who we’ve always been.

Awakening causes a ripple effect. As we alchemize our pain, our trauma—into purpose, we’re naturally drawn to help others do the same. We then are the living examples of moving beyond scarcity, beyond power/control dynamics, to abundance + cooperation.

We see others as limitless. Powerful creators. And we support + uplift them, rather than engage in destructive behaviors. Because we fully embody the truth: what we do to another, we do to ourselves.

What stage are you feeling you’re on?

Here are some top tips to help improve the health of your pelvic floor, without a Kegel in sight 🤔:

1. Avoid gripping your buttock muscles and a forward pelvic tilt. Work on backing up the hips, so you feel you’re not weight bearing forwards into your toes.

2. Ramp your head back up, by giving yourself a slight chin tuck and feel the neck lengthening.

3. Work on strengthening your transversus abdominal muscles by exhaling and engaging the deep core as you do your abdo exercises.

4. Work on your breath coordinating with movement of the pelvic floor. As you exhale lift the PF, as you inhale, release the PF.

5. Improve your spinal mobility by fixing your hunched over shoulders and upper back. Widen across the collar bones, roll the shoulders back and keep the front ribs down.

Kegels or pelvic floor exercises form a very small component of restoring the pelvic floor. These 5 areas are fundamental to progressing your rehab journey.

For a more individualised health plan for pelvic floor recovery we are now open for walk in appointments and would love to help you feel better.





New: "Grounding Practice" You can do this grounding practice for 3-5 minutes at different times of the day to steady yourself. With each breath, exhale tension. Let yourself imagine that you have roots that go deep into the soil of the earth, to steady and nurture you. If images help, let yourself remember a wonderful tree from your life—an old tree, a strong tree. Imagine that you are standing in front of the tree, meditating together. Just as this great tree has a strong trunk that has weathered storms and the changing of the seasons, feel your own body steady like the trunk of that tree. https://soundcloud.com/jack-kornfield/grounding-practice-jack-kornfield 🌳


A delicate balance.
