Looking Back on 2008

by Leisa on December 30, 2008

As the year 2008 comes to a close, it has been a time for reviewing the year just gone and setting goals, dreams and desires for the next. I have to say that if I was going to sum up 2008 in few words it would be “the year of contrasts”. There were huge ups

Charles-Eisenstein

Sounds like a bit of a daunting title doesn’t it? This interesting article is by one of my favourite authors, Charles Eisenstein.  I thought it a very good piece, especially seeing as I have suffered myself with auto-immune problems myself, and have seen many people that carry a thought pattern of “self-attack” when suffering from these

Retreat #3 is Sadly Over :-(

by Leisa on November 22, 2008

It is such a shame that this retreat had to come to an end!!  I’m sure we all could have stayed another week and enjoyed the beautiful relaxing surrounds, good food and friendships that we formed. The last night was fantastic!  We had our gala dinner where everyone dressed up, we took photo’s, had a great

A Transformational Space

by Leisa on November 19, 2008

Honestly, I am so blessed. This is turning out to be the most incredible week.  It wasn’t that the other retreats weren’t special – because they were – this is just turning out to be more intense, more connected, more uplifting and more soulful. There are many factors contributing to this, and I can’t put

Stress and Health

by Leisa on August 13, 2008

I know I keep harping on about the relationship between our health, our emotions and stress levels, but it’s a point that has really hit home to me lately because I’ve been in the middle of experiencing it. There’s nothing like learning something really well by going through it yourself, and because I had a

Stress and Switching Off…

by Leisa on July 23, 2008

With stress being the causative factor in so many degenerative health conditions, part of my philosophy on healing is to lower and manage stress through various techniques. I talk to people about the benefits of regular exercise in stress reduction, we talk about resolving and working on the emotional aspects of stress, we can look

Reclaiming our Feelings

by Leisa on July 18, 2008

I have always seen the recognition of our feelings as a way of connecting with our true and authentic selves, rather than seeing them as something we need to “overcome” in this life. Life without feeling, to me, is a life only half-lived, and to abandon the texture and colour that feeling gives to life, is to deny

The False Face of Guru-ism

by Leisa on April 28, 2008

When I was younger I always got caught up in thinking that everyone else was better than I was and knew more than I did, and in my own mind I elevated many people onto a pedestal. I learned very painfully over the years, that very few people are who they appear to be, or

The Art of Conscientiousness

by Leisa on April 13, 2008

It is an interesting word – conscientiousness – and it is one trait that I admire in people and one that I aim to embody myself. This is what it says in Wikipedia: “In psychology, conscientiousness is the trait of being painstaking and careful, or the quality of acting according to the dictates of one’s
