L E T T E R – What Might You Be If You Just Let Go

Before I left for India, I sat with my friend and student, Uyen, in Whale Beach drinking tea and we discussed the teachings of St Francis of Assisi, and some of my teachers of Indian lineage, from America and Japan. They all teach the same thing; that there is one consciousness/God, that we must live…

L E T T E R – The Chasing of Perfection

When Emily or I teach Integrated Meditation, we both drill into our students to not chase perfection. You will never have a perfect meditation practice. Nor will you be a perfect human being.

L E T T E R – Inwards Honesty First

It’s so much easier to look at someone close to us and see their flaws. Their unrealistic nature in certain areas of their life. Their blind spots, their lack of honesty about who they are. So we have this gift of clarity because we can see it outside of ourselves.  Why then is it so…

L E T T E R – Say No, Immediately

There is a downside to living a full and abundant life. I mean at first you’re like, seriously, could there be one? Well there is, and it’s that too much can come your way. Being an enthusiast and an overexcited person in general saying no was never my strength. Add in being a people pleaser and…

I really wish to use The Broad Place to share important messages. Erin Lovell Verinder who was recently interviewed at our Gathering is a brilliant nutritionist, herbalist, and naturopath and a dear friend of ours. And when I was in Byron Bay, Erin and I discussed the topic below at length. It hits a strong…

L E T T E R – The Unending Creative Process

Last weekend, I hosted with my insanely talented friend Kim Amos a Creativity and Consciousness Workshop at her property, River Hawk Ranch, as part of The Broad Place Byron Bay Retreat. Most of the students entered the workshop a bit suspicious and bewildered claiming, ‘yeah but I am not creative’. Which I hear ALL the…
