Whilst away on a recent girls weekend (plus baby Huw) in the quiet countryside I looked in the bookshelf to find a short read and discovered ‘Living the Wisdom of the Tao‘ by Dr Wayne W Dyer. I hadn’t come across this work before, which shares wise words of the Tao Te Ching, a collection […]

A Mother’s Love

Learning from our Mother’s  I enjoyed a beautiful Mother’s Day themed yoga practice at our local Lululemon store this morning. During the opening meditation the instructor read an insightful passage from one of her teacher’s Doug Whitaker called a Mother’s Love. It really touched me both from the perspective as a daughter and now a […]
