Exercise is Meant to be Fun!

by Leisa on July 22, 2011

When we feel fantatsic every day with boundless energy and enthusiasm for life, we naturally want to move our bodies and find joy in the expression of physical activity. But when we are tired, unmotivated, apathetic, and feeling down, exercise becomes an insurmountable challenge and drops to the bottom of our to-do list. This then becomes a viscious cycle where the

by Leisa on July 22, 2011

I learned of the healing process of Ho’oponopono many years ago and was fascinated by this ancient practice founded in Hawaii. Last weekend I was at an event at the Hawaiian Sanctuaryon the Big Island of Hawaii, where there were several speakers including  David Wolfe, the wonderful Aussie permaculture goddess Tania Leilani, and we were

The Horseriding Guru

by Leisa on July 17, 2011

I love synchronicities (as I wrote about in this post here) and love meeting new people when travelling and being amazed at who turns up on your path. One of the things I really wanted to do whilst in Hawaii, was go for a horse-ride in the lush Hawaiian landscape. So I found a place

Zucchini Pasta Napolitana Feast!

by Leisa on July 13, 2011

In my last post I talked about eating healthfully while travelling, and today I thought I would share with you one of the simple meals my travel buddy Tim made for us last night. And yes, we have a blender. At the farmers markets we bought fresh zucchini, tomatoes, avocado, garlic, onion, basil and parsley.

Eating Healthfully While Travelling

by Leisa on July 11, 2011

I love to travel, and lucky for me I do a bit of travelling with my work – but even more fun is holidaying in new countries and exploring new cultures. So how do you keep to a healthy diet while you are on the road (or in the air!)? I know there are some 100% raw

Living With a Thyroid Disorder

by Leisa on July 5, 2011

One of the best ways to learn about something, is to experience it yourself. Many naturopaths come to this industry due to their own health issues, which they found didn’t respond to mainstream medicine and they went on the search for alternatives. Their experience of ill health and recovery gives them a lot of empathy and understanding.

Languaging – Do You Own Your Talk?

by Leisa on June 6, 2011

In my DVD talk The Emotional Aspects of Healing, there is a section where I discuss the importance of being aware of the way we speak – the words we say, our habitual expressions, and the meaning behind our words. Our words can be a reflection of our beliefs, of how we view life, and we

Running on Empty

by Leisa on May 22, 2011

Just recently I was interviewed for an article in the Body and Soul lift-out of the Sunday newspaper, titled “Running on Empty“, about adrenal fatigue. Being one of the few practitioners in Australia who specialise in this area, it was very gratifying to have the issue of adrenal fatigue bought into the public arena in such

Gasland – Coming to Australia

by Leisa on May 21, 2011

Not long ago I watched the movie GasLand which premiered as a part of the Life Changing Doco’s series at the Gold Coast Arts Centre – and it had a profound effect on me. The movie was about “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing of the earth to release natural gas, also known as coal seam gas mining.
