Winter Flow

Winter Flow
In the heart of winter, our body is in its most Yin state; according to Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Five Elements philosophy, Yin relates to hidden, dark and internal things and to the water element. Continue reading

Oh Lordy, Mercury’s in retrograde again!

Oh Lordy, Mercury’s in retrograde again!
Whether you're into Astrology or not, Mercury in retrograde has become a modern catchphrase … preceded by a sigh of foreboding. This weird planetary phenomenon occurs three times in most years, but as if we are not challenged enough at the moment, it goes into retrograde four times this year, and on December 29th it goes into retrograde again. Mercury the planet of communication, technology and travel; also has domain over the five senses. Continue reading

So often, the prelude to our summer break can be too hectic as we shoehorn every task on our growing to-do list before we leave. Of course, one can appreciate the compulsion to dot every "i" and cross every 't'; the downside, however, is the energy investment leaves you ragged and frayed with your eyelids drooping….      Continue reading

Moon Cycles - Part One

Did you know that “Mens” is the root of Menstruation, and also the “Moon", menstrual cycles have always been connected to the lunar cycle. The radiance of lunar energies is connected to feminine or Yin energy; weirdly, this magnetic reflective energy is viewed as weaker in our modern world, but truly  it embodies the power of the unformed and holds infinite possibilities. It is affected by the moon's magnetic pull; just like the moon directs the tides of the oceans, why would it not influence the ions and fluids of our body? After all we are 70% water.

Spring Emergence

Spring Emergence
With Spring well and truly on the way, the synchronicity of lockdown softening offers an entirely different kind of emergence; having lived a very restricted and reclusive existence for the last year, the sudden possibility of renewed freedom is exciting and daunting in equal measure.

The Healing Powers of Sleep

The Healing Powers of Sleep

by Founder Michelle Roques-O'Neil....
