While away in Byron Bay last week for the Embracing Health Detox Retreat, we enjoyed quite a few rough storms during the nights.

by Leisa on March 6, 2014

I had a wonderful opportunity to review a belief I was holding onto quite tightly just last week, and it has been a refreshing insight into how easily we can become caught up in beliefs that don’t serve us, or those around us. I’ve written before about the processes I go through to explore negative feelings

Is It Costing You Your Head To Get Ahead?

by Rhianna on January 29, 2014

On the radio the other day, I was listening to an investigative news program that was discussing the rapidly growing number of working people who are going to further and further lengths to get ahead in the workplace. The story was of great concern to me, due to the number of people who I see

Leisa’s Diary #3; Life Values

by Leisa on January 29, 2014

Following on from my last diary entry about busyness, another concept that I’ve been playing with, is about values and how our life is a reflection of that which we value the most.

Leisa’s Diary #2; Business, Busyness

by Leisa on January 21, 2014

Busyness. It can be such a loaded word, and it’s one that I am currently pondering. How did this word and what it stands for, came to be such a big part of my life? I look back and realise that I wasn’t always ‘busy’. Once upon a time I had balance in my life.
