December 2016

Reflections on the past and future

This December -  for me, another birthday - another year older. Arriving in the mail on the same day was my old high school magazine. I had attended one of those exclusive English boarding schools where it’s graduates are often bound for Oxford or Cambridge and then some illustrious career  I followed a different path, first in the hospitality industry managing luxury hotels and restaurants for twenty-two years and then, after what I describe as my midlife crisis, a dramatic change to practicing healing arts.

Finding time for yourself

Life seems to be getting increasingly complicated and almost not enough hours in the day to get through all that we need to achieve. Some people are motivated, methodical and thrive on getting things done. For others, the more there is to do, the greater their state of paralysis. The holiday season, fast approaching brings with it attendant pressures. We end up throwing self-restraint to the wind and we often muddle along fitting in with the dictates of others.
