My partner William and I have a very different view on healing and what the body is capable of; as compared to most people.  Even those with an interest in, and some knowledge of natural healing, rarely trust the process of healing which isn’t always pleasant.

I really enjoyed the book and thought there were some quite profound teachings contained within it, and when I saw that a weekend training was

It’s a New Year, and I’ve decided to learn something that will enhance my fitness, quieten my mind, and detox me at the same time! One of the most inspirational ladies I have ever met, made the commitment each new year to learn something she had never done before.  One year it was ballroom dancing, the
