What Is Your Theme For This Year?

by Leisa on January 7, 2015

Following on from Rhianna’s “No Resolutions 2015” post yesterday, I wanted to share my own thoughts about the New Year, which funnily enough are very much along the same lines as Rhi! (which we only realised after we both started writing very similar blog posts!) Being a brand new year, it is a wonderful time

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

Scientific Proof That Fasting Works

by Leisa on November 3, 2014

Don’t you just love it when science ‘discovers’ something natural medicine has known and been practicing for thousands of years – and then takes credit for that ‘discovery’? It totally drives me crazy! But that is the nature of the scientific world – it is very rare that they ever give a nod to the

I'm back

I’m back! And finally ready to share what I’ve really been doing since I stepped away from Embracing Health – to a large extent – over the past eighteen months. Many of you know me from my Hippocrates days. I spend many years working as the naturopath and massage therapist at ‘Hippos’ – the raw,

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

Leisa’s Diary #5; Reviewing Beliefs

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

Leisa’s Diary #4; Healing Takes Time

by Leisa on February 5, 2014

One of the main reasons I’m slowing down and taking some time out this year, is not just to finish my book, but it is to create the space to allow time for me to heal and to take my health to another level. It is quite amazing how much time it really does take

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. One of the things that I am factoring into my ‘slower’ days, is the listening to podcasts from my favourite speakers – and

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.

Leisa’s Diary #1; New Year, New Start

by Leisa on January 15, 2014

Over the next few months I’ll be using my blog to keep a bit of a diary to record what is happening with me, as I make some big changes to my life and move in a somewhat new direction. Over the past decade I’ve met thousands of people through my work at Hippocrates Health
