The Value of Authenticity

by Leisa on December 3, 2014

I’ve just come back from running a quite extraordinary Embracing Health Retreat, and one of the themes that came up time and again when talking to the guests, was that of authenticity. How my ability to speak openly and with honesty and vulnerability, gave them permission to access their own truths and insights. The definition

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

How Kind Are You To YOU?

by Rhianna on March 7, 2014

Just a quick blog today on self love. How often do you show yourself that you love you? It is sad to think that the majority of women out there have a head full of negative self talk, rather than positive love and affirmation for their individual, divine beauty. I know it can be hard,

I Saw Your Boobs

by Leisa on February 26, 2013

Yesterday I happened to come across a video of a song that was performed at the Academy Awards a day or two ago called “I Saw Your Boobs”. And it made me really angry. You might ask why someone who writes about health, food as medicine, nutrition and emotional healing, wants to write about a song that was

You Are a Flawless Diamond

by Leisa on February 10, 2013

Spontaneous healing and using the power of the mind to combat disease, have always fascinated me. I have a library full of books delving deeply into this phenomenon, and even though there is not one clear-cut solution on any healing path, there are a myriad of techniques to explore on the way. I was revisiting some of

Living With a Thyroid Disorder

by Leisa on July 5, 2011

One of the best ways to learn about something, is to experience it yourself. Many naturopaths come to this industry due to their own health issues, which they found didn’t respond to mainstream medicine and they went on the search for alternatives. Their experience of ill health and recovery gives them a lot of empathy and understanding.

Languaging – Do You Own Your Talk?

by Leisa on June 6, 2011

In my DVD talk The Emotional Aspects of Healing, there is a section where I discuss the importance of being aware of the way we speak – the words we say, our habitual expressions, and the meaning behind our words. Our words can be a reflection of our beliefs, of how we view life, and we

It’s Been A While…

by Leisa on October 10, 2010

It’s been well over a month since I last wrote on my blog, and a big thank you to everyone who wrote to see if everything was OK! There’s a couple of reasons why I haven’t been blogging as usual – one is that it’s been that wonderfully busy spring retreat season again, and over

Soul Sessions

by Leisa on August 7, 2010

A couple of nights ago I spoke at Soul Sessions – an intimate cafe experience which is the brain child of Sydney based journalist Eloise King. “Soul Sessions is a series of events providing an intimate space for the sharing of soulful, health and self-development focused intellectual property. Our evening sessions provide a platform for

by Leisa on October 27, 2009

No, this isn’t an analysis of the mental status of the brilliant artist Van Gogh – but is the name of a new restaurant in the Philippines! We all know that “food can improve your  mood”, but this restaurant takes it to another level Filipinos can eat themselves happy at Van Gogh is Bipolar “It’s
