The Cruelty of Comparison

by Leisa on January 12, 2016

Body image is a very evocative issue. I am endlessly fascinated with the media obsession of there only being one size and shape that is attractive in women, and if you don’t fit into that flawless design, then you are either unhealthy, lazy or eating all the wrong foods. There is quite a push for

by Leisa on January 4, 2016

One of the more creative endeavours that I bring into my life every New Year is the vision board. Vision boards are a fun, inspiring and empowering exercise that anyone can do at home and the New Year is a wonderful time to set aside some time to get creative and set some goals for

Mind. Officially. Blown!

by Leisa on October 26, 2015

Sometimes in life there are pivotal points where everything comes together to create a shift in perspective and understanding that takes you to another level of knowing – and that happened for me this weekend.

Finding The Faith (Again)

by Leisa on June 30, 2015

I had an A-HA moment on the weekend (and I don’t mean I listened to the eighties band!). I went along to the Marianne Williamson workshop in Brisbane for the day and it was like coming home. There is nothing I love more than a highly intellectual person discussing comparative religion and spirituality as it

How Full Is Your Cuddle Tank?

by Rhianna on November 20, 2014

As I opened the internet this morning I found my home page had decided to change from Google to MSN. I don’t know why this happens and I actually find it quite annoying, but before I could reset my page back to normal a featured story caught my eye. Apparently a woman in Portland, Oregon

When people call me to ask about our detox retreats, invariably one of the most common question that comes up is “What is your BEST retreat location?” Now this is hard one for me! So hard in fact, that I often umm and ahh, to the point where the caller doesn’t end up getting any

Pay It Forward

by Rhianna on July 17, 2014

I know we are supposed to wake up each day and choose to be happy. I know it can be a conscious decision; we are the ones in charge of our mood and how we decide to feel each day, we have the power. But sometimes you wake up feeling less than great. And making

Documentaries For Your Viewing Pleasure

by Rhianna on July 3, 2014

Sometimes there is nothing better than watching something that stimulates you on an eye opening, intellectual level. There are so many fantastic documentaries out there that really don’t get any publicity (for conspiracy theory reasons I think!), and so it is easy for the general public to miss out.
