L E T T E R from Jac – The Well Of Water Within

Buddhist nun Pema Chodron speaks beautiful about the fact that we all have a well of fresh spring water within each of us, and we just need to tap into it, to allow love and compassion to flow through us. In the beginning, only little drips come out, but eventually a stream. That this inner…

L E T T E R from Jac – Always Going For Truth And Honesty

I really enjoyed Jill Soloway’s book She Wants It, and so highly recommend it. In particular, her honesty was so refreshing. Where she had fallen down, where she had been misaligned, where her ego had hindered her. Also her joys and delights in the creative process, family life, being a working woman. She artfully and…

L E T T E R from Jac – Tao Tuesday

This translation is by Stephen Mitchell of Chapter 44 of the Tao Te Ching, that we can really saturate in. It’s timeless, even though being penned so long ago, around 2500 years back. To dive into it I recommend actually journaling each question and deciphering the truth to each for yourself. “Fame or integrity, which…

L E T T E R – GENEROSITY Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

What a lovely intention to set for the week ahead! Generosity. I would like us all to look at in two directions. Generosity to ourselves and generosity to others. Things to look into this week: Where am I being frugal and stingy towards myself? This doesn’t mean financial, but perhaps with self-care, my rituals, my…

L E T T E R from Emily – Resistance

Someone recently told me that resistance is only present in the face of movement, this resonated so strongly with me and I wanted to share it with you. Resistance can feel tense, difficult to define or identify yet so present and obviously there. I’ve definitely felt that if only I could break through it, then…

L E T T E R from Jo – Tell It To Me Straight

I have a preference for direct and honest communication. I don’t have time to beat around the bush or make assumptions and take guesses – usually wrong, about what is being said. There’s nothing worse than the vibe of things left unsaid or half said or hidden within other things that are said. What I’m…

L E T T E R from Jac – Nothing Is Lacking

One of the big issues I have with spirituality and self-development is the constant seeking to better oneself when it comes from a place of lack. Self-knowledge and development should come from a place of fullness, love, and compassion. It’s simply dialing up all the goodness that we have already at play. It’s allowing our…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Internal and External Rhythms

Something I discussed at the London Integrated Meditation Meeting last week, which seemed to really strike a chord, was internal and external rhythms. When taken into deeper consideration, it’s very powerful. Each of us has a natural internal rhythm that we work best to when we align to it. And our internal rhythm is frequently…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Taoist Tuesday

There are so many ways to unpack this. The essence of it is to align with nature. When we align with the natural rhythms of every situation, and the larger situation at hand it gives us the grace to allow things to run their natural course. We release control. We recognise that although we might…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Energy Is The Key To Creativity

When we are exhausted, we are cranky and we are definitely uncreative. A good flow of physical energy keeps us attuned to the creative flow. I know it for myself, that my best ideas and cognitions, writing and strategies always come to me when I am meditating steadily, or on vacation, when I am already…
Read More +

L E T T E R – SLOWING DOWN Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Intention Setting for the week is about slowing down. Exploring what this might mean to you. Things to look into this week: How can I create more space in my days and weeks? Where am I deliberately pushing myself and what can I do to reduce this? What would my life look like at a more…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jo – Only You

“Nothing is original.” This statement always triggers me to try and think up something that is truly original and believe me I really try hard to think of something, anything that is original from the very start. However, so far I have always failed and it reminds me again and again that we are building…
Read More +

L E T T E R – INTEGRITY Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

Integrity was once beautifully described to me as doing the right thing even if no one was looking. I feel very strongly that in the digital age this concept is even more important for us, as so many hide behind the curtain of anonymity. Bullying, shaming, and hate can be used, without accountability. Getting even…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Emily – Imagination

My personal world view and beliefs are constantly evolving, I reserve the right to change my mind and develop deeper understandings and knowledge, limited to the lens I see it through. I feel that it is only natural to expect that our ideas about the world will forever shift and change. We become stuck and…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jo – Rewire Me Please

There is an interesting dynamic that takes place between the mind and the heart and many factors determine which leads and which follows, this will be different for each of us. The weighting and leadership between these two (mind and heart) will pretty much determine our experience of the world. It is clear that our…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Doing Good

Is it really as easy as doing good to be happy? I believe it is. I feel that too often we make life all too complicated. With so many ambitions, so much guilt, we are riddled with overthinking and paranoia that as we are, we are simply not enough. We are also stuck smack bang…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – The Impossible

Putting ourselves in the shoes of others is essentially impossible. Most of our programmed in ideas and beliefs were ground into us before we turned 7 years old. Every day trauma and joy are experienced. Sometimes in tiny doses, sometimes huge. How our parents raised or didn’t raise us, our teachers, our friends, our colleagues…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Taoist Tuesday

Taoism is a beautiful philosophy I have been studying now for decades, and it still eludes me, catches my curiosity and pulls at my heart. The essence of it for me is that there is only one thing. This one permeating thing is an essential life energy that we are made of, and can be…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Independent Practice

Imagine any teachings that teach you independence. That don’t ask anything of you after learning. That allows you to be empowered and personal in your approach. That advocates your individual practice and supports you on your path, whatever that looks like for you. This quote underpins what we teach at The Broad Place called Integrated…

L E T T E R – FORGIVENESS Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week let’s collectively set our sights on forgiveness. I recommend always journaling your way through these Intentions to allow your subconscious and conscious to meet on a plane where action can then be taken. Be free in your writing, no one will see it but you… Things to look into this week; To begin…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Emily – Stay Curious

To be curious is a practice, one so worthwhile pursuing as it abolishes fear, judgement and will provide you with feedback instantly. It will dissolve anxiety and worry, and replace them with clarity and wonder. This truly is a practice as we constantly need to remind ourselves to stay curious, especially in the face of…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jo – Leave Some Room

As an ex-Right Fighter, I know a thing or two about taking a position and holding on tight. Leaving no room for anything else at all – not your opinion, not your view, and don’t even say it, not even the chance I could be wrong *gasp*. Of course, being RIGHT is easily justified, for…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Our Own Heart Is Our Temple

I am confident I have used this quote before, as I love it. I find it every now and again in a book, or scribbled in my notepad and am lit up every time. The simplicity of a temple being our own hearts, that we carry with us always, and very rarely REALLY tune into.…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Put Down Your Books

At The Broad Place, we advocate study and reading all the time. However, if the study is not taken into action it’s useless. I absolutely adore reading, absorbing, studying. I dedicate a moment of every day to this. It’s a process that’s very live though, and I discard as much of what I read through…

L E T T E R – from Jac; The Unfolding

There is a story about a young man in Japan who wanted to be the greatest martial artist of the land. He thought that to reach this goal, he must study with the best instructor, who lived many miles away. One day he left home to go study with this great Zen teacher. After traveling…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Meditate First

It’s so tempting to prioritise other things over our meditation practices. Let’s face it, our ego’s do NOT want us meditating. Connecting with our souls, calming our minds and rinsing our bodies of stress, tension and fatigue is not really in the ego’s interest. Checking emails over and over, gluing our selves to our phones,…
Read More +

L E T T E R – AUTHENTICITY Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week, we will place our awareness and our attention on Authenticity. Ooooh this is such a juicy one. I really recommend spending some time journaling around this piece and keep it front of mind all week. Things to look into this week; How do define authenticity and me at my most authentic?Where do I…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Emily – Presence

Why do we find it so hard to stay in the present? More and more so we are hearing all about the benefits of present moment awareness, mindfulness and all the tools and techniques that can get us to this place of NOW. Yet despite all of these, many of us still find ourselves projecting…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jo – Shifting to an Internal Orientation

The lure of people pleasing is that it gives you a clear goal and a way forward. You literally do not have to think that much – just do what they want – actually you do what you think they want. It also has a nice little rosy tint to it… à la “I’m giving…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – The Daily Miracle

It’s a choice, to live as if each day is the miracle it is. The stress of moving across the world has the benefits of finally arriving. Then there is new stress to encounter. Being in a new city, as a little family, without our normal family and social framework, homeschooling for 4 months (don’t…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – Trusting The Universe

I have something I remind myself of constantly; there are no accidents and there are no coincidences. Everything is happening just as it should be, as an opportunity. And to be honest, I am saying this a lot to myself currently whilst our shipping container continues to be delayed even further and we are camping…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – True Bravery

I was chatting with a special friend of ours who is in his late teens, as he is trying to decide what to do with ‘his life’. This is the big time when it’s deemed apparently that kids should be deciding what to do with their lives, as if one decision now should serve them forever.…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – The Passing of Practice

A student went to his meditation teacher and said, “My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I’m constantly falling asleep. It’s just horrible!” “It will pass,” the teacher said matter-of-factly. A week later, the student came back to his teacher. “My meditation is wonderful! I feel so aware, so…

L E T T E R – KINDNESS Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week, let’s together place our awareness and our attention on Kindness. We can amplify kindness in the world if we do this together.

L E T T E R from Emily – Someone Like You

We are living in a very interesting time, on one hand, we are seeing the rise of ethical and morally responsible voices all over the world, individuals and business that stand up for a positive and abundant future. On the other hand, we see “world leaders” and governing bodies sending messages of fear, with a…

L E T T E R from Jo – Embrace Your Creativity

I was listening to a podcast on my way to work the other day and it referenced that based on the current trajectory in a few years the majority of the workforce will be self-employed – #bestboss! Regardless of whether this will be our reality or not, the changing environment around us is increasingly becoming…

L E T T E R from Jac – What Is Being Delivered?

When things are challenging, it can be troublesome to acknowledge the good in the situation. Sometimes, I work through this set of questions when life seems like a circus, and I find journaling and writing out the answers is incredibly helpful, thought you might like it for when you need it to… Who can I BE…

L E T T E R from Jac – Holding On Longer Than Required

There are so many versions of this fable, all delivering the same message; that we must not hold onto what isn’t ours, not what has passed. A head monk and student were once traveling together down a muddy road. Heavy rain was still falling. Coming around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a…

L E T T E R – Tuesday Tip; A Potent Experiment

Maharishi used to teach that there were three very important things to living a high-grade life that I’ll abridge here: 1. Always meditate2. Don’t speak negatively3. Always speak sweet truth Sometimes we get confused with ‘not speaking negatively’ and interpret this as not speaking the truth about someone. That’s not what this means. We must…

L E T T E R from Jac – How To Walk The Path

Coming across a monk praying while circumambulating a holy building, Geshe Tenpa said, “How pleasant to walk around sacred places, but you know, it’s far better to practice the wonderful Dharma.” The monk took his words to heart and began earnestly studying the scriptures. One day Geshe Tenpa came across him and commented, “How commendable…

L E T T E R – GRATITUDE Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week, we will place our awareness and our attention on Gratitude. Gratitude is frequently written off as too ‘woo-woo‘ but is incredibly powerful, and is much more than a hashtag! Things to look into this week;Where am I taking my life for granted and where could I open myself to the gifts in my…

L E T T E R from Emily – Sparks of Madness

“Where is that place where all of our intuitive ideas bubble up from? What does it mean to have expanded consciousness?” These are questions we start to ask ourselves as we move through our own evolution. Whether it be emotional, physical or spiritual evolution, all we are ever doing is expanding our view of the world…

L E T T E R from Jo – Enjoy the Unfurling

I love A-HA! moments – like that final piece of a giant puzzle clicking together and revealing all or a theatre curtain that only until fully raised do you appreciate the scene that is laid out in front of you. I love the accomplishment of these moments of realisation, things that had been fuzzy become…

L E T T E R from Jac – Something Truly Precious

There is an old story that goes like this… A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked…

L E T T E R from Jac – The Danger of The Majority

When it comes to spiritual growth, self-development and our active evolving, it can get tricky at times. Sometimes what we want to believe is so strong, that we can start to ignore reality. We can get caught up in strange little situations, ignore certain parts because other parts feel so right. We can actually fall completely…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – This Too Shall Pass

I have found personally, and for many of our students, that we are all too happy to let go of the uglier of our experiences, but are impossibly eager to attempt to possess the happier of our experiences. ‘This too shall pass’. We find comfort to repeat this to ourselves when it comes to anger…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Jac – The Unfolding Mystery

We kind of feel like we have control of our life most of the time, like we are the ones in charge. Then we take a few knocks and hits and begin to overtime surrender to the fact that the whole thing is a mystery. Good people get terminally ill. People doing very bad things…
Read More +

L E T T E R – CHARM Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week, we will place our awareness and our attention on Charm. Charm is the little things your heart sings for, little calls from the universe that catch your attention, which is dusted gently with gold. What would it look to let my intellect sit aside for a moment and follow my heart each day?How…
Read More +

L E T T E R from Emily – Patterns

In a conversation with a friend this week, we discussed how we often default to playing small. Even when we know that a behaviour, pattern or belief system may not be serving our highest self, we still stick to it with such conviction. We stay in relationships that don’t uplift us, in jobs that exhaust…

L E T T E R from Jo – Skin in the Right Game

I was kindly asked the other day, are you committed to this or are you just involved? Yikes, I had to pause and consider what they were actually asking me – what was the difference between commitment and involvement? And importantly what did I want to be? Like the rabbit, commitment is you are all…

L E T T E R from Jac – Creativity Is A Process

You may not be able today, to form wet clay as it dries between your hands. Or apply oily, lazy paint to a canvas. Or frame up a photo with natural light seeping in from the side of a frame. Today, you may not be able to hold a stick of crumbling charcoal in your…

L E T T E R from Jac – Modern Day Rushing

I was recently reading Alan Watts stating how in times of overwhelm, he would find solace in the ocean and would sit for 4-5 hours at a time, absorbing the energy of the ocean. The thing that struck me within this, was the 4-5 hours component. The healing powers of the ocean, of course. The…

L E T T E R – How To Be The Best Meditator Ever

This title is a joke! You cannot ever be ‘the best meditator ever’ as it simply doesn’t exist. You can’t even master meditation as it’s a process of opening and unfolding consciousness for yourself with no actual end goal in sight. I get messages all the time from students saying ‘ugh I am the worst…

L E T T E R – SERVICE Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week, we will place our awareness and our attention on Service.

L E T T E R from Jo – It’s All About The Joy!

I’ll be honest I have not leapt in to the Marie Kondo approach to tidying but I have observed from the sidelines (likely because of the tidying) as there is something that feels so good about it that I couldn’t quite discern (likely because of the tidying). After witnessing my husband happily (dare I even…

L E T T E R from Jac – Everything Changes

There is a story told about Suzuki Roshi, a great Buddhist teacher. “Suzuki Roshi, I’ve been listening to your lectures for years,” a student said during the question and answer time following a lecture, “but I just don’t understand.

L E T T E R from Jac – Never Too Small

I have so many moments where I think in despair, I am just one person what can I do. And then I remember this quote. It inspires me to be persistent, as I have never, met anything more persistent than a mosquito. Think you can’t be heard? Just keep going. Eventually, you will be heard.Think…

L E T T E R from Emily – A Love Letter

It’s easy to lose perspective of who we really are and what we’re really here to do or be. It’s even harder to keep this perspective when the entire universe is one big paradox. We can simultaneously feel like nothing and everything, fulfilled and empty, expanded and contracted. Like this quote by Mother Teresa, a…

L E T T E R from Jo – Be More Like Coffee

It’s no secret that I love coffee. A most honoured daily ritual of joy – a hot, fresh cup of coffee enlivens all my senses and brings gentle contentment to my day (and also, I’m always much smarter after my coffee). There is a magic to coffee that goes beyond the functional and I am…

L E T T E R from Jac – Running Them Storylines

The brain is a remarkable affirmation tool. Allow our minds to tell us something, believe it, and watch the brain prove it true. Storylines develop dramatically from here. Find a little fault in someone and watch the brain find ALL sorts of things to affirm negativity about them. Decide to go on a vacation somewhere,…

L E T T E R from Jac – Mastery Of Life

We can ask, how can I bring myself, to the fullest, to this moment? It will require presence. Fullness is expansive. We can ask, how can I apply my creativity to this situation?

L E T T E R – Tuesday Tips; Let’s Dedicate 1% Of Our Day To Learning

Part of our Integrated Meditation program is encouraging 1% of the day dedicated to learning. It’s just 15 minutes. Reading something of a high grade, about creativity, consciousness and clarity creates inspiration, new ways of thinking and more importantly begins to pave new ways of being in the world. Knowledge is power. When the mind…

L E T T E R from Jac – Before The Drought

Isn’t this a brilliant sentence, ‘When the well is dry, we know the worth of water’?. I teach so many people meditation that says one of two things: 1. Why in earth’s name did I not do this earlier?2. I wish I wasn’t learning because of my diagnosis/grief/shock and had done this when I was…

L E T T E R – CREATOR Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This week, lets set our acknowledging and exploring that we, solely, create our experience of the world. The world is an inside out phenomenon. Everything that we experience is through the lens of our consciousness. If we feel expanded, as does our world. If we feel contracted, as does our world. Consider how you are…

L E T T E R from Emily – What “Should” I Do?

I’m writing this letter for anyone who has ever found themselves caught in the perfectionist loop, the spiral of Instagram comparisons and the slope of procrastination. We call our devices “smart” but something that is truly smart should be used to propel us further and more fully into our own worth and expand our consciousness…

L E T T E R from Jo – You Love You

Imagine you are holding a container – it can be as big as you like, any shape you like and decorated just the way you like. Now, “fill it up” with all the love you have for yourself (positive thoughts, adoration, things you are good at). Observe how full your container gets … you can…

L E T T E R from Jac – Wanting Change

We all want change, every single person wants something different to what is actually happening. It might be little, it might be big. It might be, I wish I had ordered that dish instead of this. It might be, I wish I hadn’t married this person. It might be, I wish I had lived more…

L E T T E R from Jac – Daily Devotion

We are building on a theme here, which you might have picked up on because it’s my obsessive personality to get caught on ideas. I hope you do the same. The soaking in a concept until it’s a reality. Until you don’t think, you just feel. The theme I am working on constantly is daily devotion to the…

L E T T E R – Tuesday Tips; Something Sweet For The Afternoon

In Ayurveda, there are three dosha’s and the Vata dosha, when out of balance, can cause anxiety, sleeplessness and restlessness. Which is pretty much everyone in modern society, hehe. Balancing the Vat dosha involves many things, I’ve written a piece on it here. One of my favourite little Data balancing takeaways, my Ayurvedic doctors over the years…

L E T T E R from Jac – The Real You Is In There

In an age whereby ‘you can be anyone’, being just you, can seem boring and unappealing I have found. When I tell people that meditation makes you a deeper version of you, often people’s shoulders slump a little, and they say they were kinda hoping to become a ‘new them’. There is no such thing, if…

L E T T E R – CREATIVITY Intention Setting For The Week Ahead

This is a little something new I wanted to try with you, where we collectively set an intention and discovered what it means to us.

L E T T E R from Emily – Moving to Truth

There is a part of all of us that wants to stay small, it is afraid to reach our personal optimum because this is unknown territory and when something is unknown, the mind will want to avoid it. But we are dynamic, ever-evolving beings and moving into unknown places is where the magic of life lies.…

L E T T E R from Jo – Doing It From The Heart

I’m a recipe follower – I need that recipe to tell me exactly what I’m meant to be doing, at least for the first time. After I’ve followed it once, I then relax a little and start to add my own flair (and when I say flair I mean different ingredients). My mother and sister…

L E T T E R from Jac – More Than One Way To Toast

In our cabin in Big Sur, there was a fireplace, and no toaster, so we began to hack hunks of sourdough and toast them in the fireplace, to then lather hot with butter. Mine and Arran’s techniques I found hilarious, as they said so much about us as people. Arran would take a piece of…

L E T T E R from Emily – The Garden of Sanity

When you have a technique that allows the mind to gently settle and guide you to deep restful transcendence, your entire nervous system shifts. Daily, it gets filled up, restored and repaired. The by-product of this is a far more fulfilled experience of just about everything. Your physical, mental and emotional health is being told how…

L E T T E R from Jo – Watering My Grass

How many times have I looked “over there” at the green grass wishing it was under my feet? Too many to count. The idea that I’d be great over there, all my dreams would come true if I was over there, I would be really successful over there, people would love me more over there,…

L E T T E R from Jac – Remember To Tell People You Love Them

I have gotten into the habit of sometimes inappropriately telling the people in my life I love them. I say it’s inappropriate only, because in a society of people whereby we seem to reserve I love you’s for the people only very intimate to us, and sometimes it’s received awkwardly. I think we should tell more people,…

L E T T E R from Jac – Everything Is The Path

There’s something very plain, very simple that I adore about Zen, being that nothing is special AND everything is special. That nothing in our lives should be deemed ‘spiritual’ when everything is. So it’s not just when we go to yoga, or church, or our temple. Or light our incense and read inspiring books. It’s…

L E T T E R from Jac – The Fake News In Our Heads

Our beliefs define us. Like scratches and smudges on a pair of sunglasses that we have become so used to them, we don’t even see them. We don’t see they obstruct the truth of what’s before us. They colour our view of the world at all times. We don’t know to even wipe them clean…

L E T T E R from Emily – Foundations of Love

I’m sure that every generation has seen themselves in a time of political turmoil in one way or another, I think that is just the nature of the beast. However, the theme of this is ever changing. In this moment I feel we live in a time of political confusion, I myself, in all honesty,…

L E T T E R from Jo – Moving Towards A Better Me

I love the forward motion that focusing on who you want to become creates. It puts yesterday firmly in its place, it anchors you to today but with a glittering eye on tomorrow – this is my kind of set up. It keeps me buoyed in knowing that any action has a course correction built…

L E T T E R from Jac – Bound by Threads

Every single moment that happens now, has with it an accumulation of past decisions. Thin gossamer threads that string through everything. Every wise decision has a fingerprint on now. Every dumb decision too. Everything is a choice. Destiny is a thing, but it is shaped by our decisions. Tiny teeny ones are the most important…

L E T T E R from Jac – Bringing A Little Love To It

An important question I ask myself when I am feeling very contracted is how can I bring more love to this. It might be that I am frustrated at the airport and a security person is going through my every single item and it’s taking a long time and I know I am going to miss…

L E T T E R from Jac – The Daily Grinding or Daily Grounding

I personally dislike the constant messaging in the self-development and entrepreneurial spaces of rise and grind. Of own the day. Of you can be anything. It’s too big. It doesn’t take into account the sequencing of every element of our lives that brought us to today. Or every little thing that occurred within and outside…

L E T T E R from Emily – Sinking Ships

We’ve all had the experience of treading water, just trying to keep our head above, and at times feeling more like a sinking ship. I love this quote from Deborah Levy from her book ‘The Cost of Living’, I read it at such a pivotal point at the very beginning of this year when I…
