L E T T E R from Jac – A Yes And A No

For every yes there simply has to be a no. Compromise means everyone gets half or less. If you’re a people pleaser, it can be super activating and triggering to say no. But saying yes can come at too big a price sometimes. It took me forever to learn that a lot of what I…

L E T T E R from Jac – Nature Is My Religion

I don’t have an official religion, but my temple is the ocean. My altars are the trees. Animals are my teachers. And the seasons have taught me an immense amount. Aligning with nature’s ways has taught me that Spring is growth and the promise of what might be, a time to plant seeds and to…

L E T T E R from Jac – The Power of Intent

There is a system within the Vedic lineages called ‘tapasya’ which is essentially the renunciation of something we enjoy, in order to receive something of a higher order. It’s frequently misconstrued as austerity. We are actually quite used to giving up something in order to receive something else. We might wake early to meditate, forgoing…

L E T T E R from Jac – Anxiety Remedies

Ram Dass really brought home the message ‘Be Here Now’. In fact, it was the title of his pivotal book, of the same title, that has inspired decades of people to understand what it is to be in the present moment. When we experience anxiety, we get further and further from the present moment. I…

L E T T E R from Emily – The Work

“Dust settles, I don’t” – Anita Kopacz I was listening to a podcast (Ancient Wisdom Today) a few days ago, it was fun, light-hearted and all about living a “F**k Yes” life! It made me realise how many ‘F**K NO’ moments I’ve let slide, out of fear of hurting someone, being disliked or not wanting to…

L E T T E R from Jac – Truly Transform 2019

Life is this strange sequencing of events, isn’t it? And when we look at a year, it is like 12 slices of life. How are we going to prepare for them? What will they reap? Will it be a harvest year or will it be a flailing year? Who will we be? What will we do? How…

L E T T E R from Jac – Where Are We Blocking Compassion

I raised this in our Tea Ceremony and Meditation Gathering last Saturday because someone asked it of me awhile ago and it really stuck with me. “How many times have you walked past someone homeless and thought, damn I’ve got no coins and kept walking”?. For me, I always buy a meal when I see someone as I can…

L E T T E R from Jac – The No That Comes Before A Yes

I frequently do this, write a YES list. What do I want in my life. It’s a very full life, so there has to also be a NO list that goes with it. I want to write Daily Letters; yes. Rewatching the entire of Game Of Thrones before the next season comes out; a sad but realistic no. I want to go stand up paddle boarding; yes. I…

L E T T E R from Jac – Our Practices

Too often we think, myself included, ‘I don’t have time for this’, surrounding anything that is nourishing, rewarding, spiritual and allows us to be our higher grade selves. If you have had a deeply personal morning ritual, meditation practice, or anything that allows you to experience the day orientated from your soul, you will know the impact this…

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

Even the crap bits, shit bits all the bits in between. It’s funny how in hindsight we understand that everything is there as our oath to understanding ourselves, a curation for our own evolution. But in the thick of it, we forget, panic and meltdown. We have a lot on our plate at the moment,…
