Leisa’s Diary #6; The Return of Malakai

by Leisa on April 30, 2014

The last week was a very difficult one for me… It had a happy ending, but the outcome was anything but assured. As with any event or incident in my life, I take the time to delve into the experience to see what I might be able to learn or gain from it. Not when in

What’s On You?

by Rhianna on April 29, 2014

I am a girl, not quite the girliest-girl, but I still like make up, nail polish, perfume and yummy smelling shampoo’s body washes and moisturisers. Perusing my search for the best natural hair care products the other day, I actually got fooled into buying something that said it was natural, only to arrive at my

by Rhianna on April 22, 2014

As the weather gets colder I always start dreaming of warmer climates, tropical fruit, stunning beaches, humidity and cool water. So it’s no wonder that Bali springs to mind!

Is It Allergies or Intolerances?

by Rhianna on April 15, 2014

When I was a kid, Mum dragged me to the dreaded naturopath who told us I shouldn’t be having wheat or dairy. As a result, Mum started waging war against these evils in my diet, and also against me, because at the age of 10 there was no way I was going to eat soy

White chocolate

When I was a kid I think Easter was my favourite time of year. I think my brother would agree. It meant a week of camping in the bush with our cousins, smoky fires, bright stars at night, playing from dawn till dusk, getting dirty, building rafts, climbing trees, playing in the creek and having

I hate the news, it’s all negative, depressing, fear-based snippets of what the media decide we should hear about. As a result I don’t watch it. But I do watch My Kitchen Rules. And waiting for MKR (what the cool kids call it…) leaves me with little option as far as what do I flick

Why Are You Doing What You Are Doing?

by Rhianna on April 7, 2014

On Friday I drove for over an hour to visit a monk (not exactly my usual Friday). In our hour and a half chat, he told me the same things that numerous practitioners and friends have been telling me for the last 10 years. Meditate more. Relax more. Take time out during your day to

Hot chocolate

Having recently become tired of all the advertisements bombarding Facebook, I have turned my social media interest towards Instagram. Quick, real-life, with no ads, I have found a picture and a few words is a great way to let people know what you are up to. The other day I took a road trip down

Why We Don’t Say No…

by Rhianna on March 31, 2014

I think I have mentioned before, that during the Embracing Health Detoxification Retreats, we often see themes develop in the groups we get. We have seen the ‘Constipation Group’, the ‘Thyroid Group’, the ‘Headache Group’ and the ‘Low Self Worth Group’. These themes occur purely by the design of the universe and the magic of

Cicada Shell

When It Happens, It Happens!

by Rhianna on March 27, 2014

While away in Byron Bay last week for the Embracing Health Detox Retreat, we enjoyed quite a few rough storms during the nights. One morning after a particularly strong storm, I was walking towards the shala when I saw a newly abandon cicada cast (the shell bit, actually called an exuvia upon further research!) on
