Don’t trust your eyes …
… trust your gut! You’ve come to the right place! This year everything seems to be different — I’m different. You’re different (I bet). The world is different.

Coming Home from Exile
I have just returned from teaching the “Luciously Clarifying Workshop” in cooperation with Rebecca Agouropoulos from Chanting Stork Yoga after having been on a what felt like a very long exile. One of my favourite authors and poets David Whyte wrote: “One of the remarkable things about being human, one of the incredible things is – you only have to articulate exactly the measure...

Fighting what? Everything. Myself first. Then fighting against time. Aging. Diminishing. Dying. Fighting for approval. Monetary approval. Social approval. Marital approval.
