  • What does it mean to be humanitarian?

    With the nature of news reporting and its obsession with all things dramatic, conflicted and deficient – we may easily be duped into feeling humans are a terrible heartless species. However, psychological and social studies have revealed the very opposite - that we are inherently caring beings. We are social creatures with deep and abiding bonds; and with a natural inclination to love, nurture and support each other – even strangers. Sure, we are complex.…

  • World Indigenous Day. Why this day matters.

    Humanity seems to stand on a precipice. In many ways the future seems uncertain. Engulfed in confusion, crisis, conflict and despair, many are questioning the reason to live. We are in great and urgent need of wise agency, of clarity and true wisdom. We need answers that can lead us through these tumultuous times. Most of all, we need reason to hope. Perhaps we don’t need to look too far to find it. Beneath all…

  • Awakening and Regeneration

    From the time I was a young child, I recognised that the people all around me were deeply disconnected and that this severance of spirit was directly related to the collective conflicts reverberating around the world. Clearly, this disconnection was the root of great suffering and conflict.  As I grew to be able to articulate what I saw and understood I recognised the need for a great awakening – not just within individuals – but…

  • Prayer – why it might be relevant?

    Apparently, everyone is googling prayer right now. Given the unprecedented crisis we are in, it’s not surprising there has been a sudden interest. What really is prayer?  Prayer is and has been, a unique human behaviour throughout time. Historically we have been taught to pray to a God. To a being or force outside ourselves. To something higher. Someone in control. To pray has been and is, a part of cultures and religions ancient and…

  • ‘Evil’ arises when we do not take responsibility for our dark side. Our shadow-self is our responsibility, and ours alone.

    The notion that another can die for our sins does not support a society to act with self-responsibility. It is the abdication of our own accountability that leads to greater atrocities. In denying ourselves the responsibility to meet our own shadow, it’s darkness continues unchecked. And it is the denial of our own light that leaves us in the darkness. Here we are, in a world suffering the weight of the unmet shadow. It’s the…

  • The Four Pillars of Lore: A universal map for our times

    From the time I was a young girl I experienced and observed the traumas of disconnection. I could see that many of the people around me were so disconnected from the land, from the environment surrounding them, that it was like they were living in their own diminished bubble. That bubble was also filled with layers of trauma and emotional conflicts that prevented them from being truly connected with the people around them. This was…

  • This is our home. Our world is burning.

    This is not just OUR home. Millions of lives are being killed. Our world is in peril. This is our wake up call, not for our own spiritual awards, but for the sake of all life on Earth. THIS IS GOING TO BLOW YOUR MIND!! The Amazon blaze in Brazil is actually only third in the world in wildfires over the last 48 hours. READ THAT AGAIN… 3rd!! According to NASA MODIS satellite, the data…

  • Is Enlightenment Desirable?

    I raise this question because it seems evident that the idea of a rift between ‘worldliness’ and the ‘spiritual journey’ is still very much alive. Many people experience the same conflict: the notion it has to be one or the other. Most people feel so deeply trapped in the worldly cycle that they can’t help but recognise the suffering it causes them. This, of course, generates a very powerful desire to be free of this…

  • Why are we always seeking?

    If what we truly are and what we seek already is – if our true nature is already the liberated Self – then why do we ‘need’ to do anything – why are we always seeking? Does this question sound familiar to you? It certainly is a question that I have heard on many occasions – and it is a question worth exploring and understanding more deeply. It is a question that may lead us…

  • Why the story matters

    Those who are wandering the spiritual path are well aware of the framework of the ego. Put simply, the ego is a collection of stories we have become attached to. So attached, in fact, that the real sense of self – and life – is lost under a constructed identity. But these stories shape our lives. They determine either our health and well-being or demise, so it is a worthwhile and important area of examination;…

  • Wake up and be conscious

    Do you often feel like your life is out of your control? If you answer yes to this, which if we are honest, most people would, then you may be looking for: consciousness! Most people live life day in day out feeling like a mouse in a wheel that they have no control over. Our world lives in such a fast pace and high demand to fulfil the roles that society insists on that most…

  • The challenging times we are living in

    Namaste, In programs I have frequently referred to the fact that we are currently in times of great challenge - individually and collectively. There are great forces at work - all as an orchestration for our evolution. This means many are being faced with intense challenges - all of which ultimately serve to expose whatever is misaligned with Truth, and to bring consciousness to those parts of the self that are to be evolved into…

  • Nature – a place of awakening

    At the heart of all life, deep in the natural order of our world, is an inherent power and presence. It is unquestionable. Where life abides in its most natural state, there is a flow, a pervading stillness and ceaseless vitality. This is why I speak often of the human need to be connected with nature. Not only is it essential to us – for it is the very source of our life – but…
