Meditation can be a single drop of water within the ocean, or it can be the entire ocean
Have you had those days where the rain never seems to stop? Mother Nature opens the sky and water continues for days upon end? The sky is grey, clouds are dark and the sun has fallen asleep with no sunrise or sunset… It’s been like this recently in France, for the past week and trying to be motivated to meditate and do my daily practice, (the words from Yoda start to ring true)..and
Back to reality…being ‘present’ is an important focus point in meditation including the point of breath and discipline. Without these three main factors in your meditation practice, motivation to continue can become a challenge. We can always find excuses why we cannot find the time, discipline, inspiration to do something; in this context, I’m referring to meditation. In the next few weeks, I will be posting some guidance on various techniques of meditation practice, how to overcome limiting thoughts and excuses when it begins with your meditation practice. For beginners this will be helpful too.
Practice makes perfect! I shall be including breath work meditation for freediving and an interview…watch this space..

We are already halfway through January 2018 and I ask you the question…
Can you really have a plant based diet for just one month?
Call it ‘Veganuary’ month of January or just vegan, you can begin for one entire month to detox with, no meat, no diary, just good fresh veggies and fruit? But hey, the real big question is ‘where do you get your protein’?
For all you healthy, conscious people or you just simply curious about a plant base/vegan diet, the answer is in the tasty legumes, i.e. lentils, beans, tofu, tempah. Do you know that Lewis Hamilton, Formula One Champion, has recently announced he is on a plant based vegan diet, for many reasons to do with his health and feeling so much better for it! Including awesome singer, Will I Am from the band, ‘Black Eyed Peas’, (excuse the pun) but seriously, Will I Am has also gone onto a plant base diet recently he calls it ‘Vgang’ diet, not surprised, knowing their lyrics and poignant dope rap tunes, like this one:

Besides, the proof is in the health and other reasons, so for January we encouraging you for a personal challenge, to taste a plant based way of life for one month and see how it makes you feel, in your body & mind, your consciousness. No strings attached, or any crazy, avocado, green vegan ‘preachiness’ (if there is such a word).
In the meantime, I shall go and hug a tree and meditate and put our message ‘out there’ about ‘Veganuary’, I’m here to assist you in guidance, coaching to kick start your one month of a plant base diet. The truth is, you can find out information on this topic yourself, but the good news is, I can honestly talk from experience, been on a plant base diet for 15 years and vegetarian previously for 5 years.
Going the full monty with plant base is far healthier and I’ve got some amazing delicious and healthy, easy to make, home-made recipes to share with you. (my French boyfriend, a keen vegan foodie and great cook himself, really appreciates the recipes).
To give the Veganuary for one month a go with personal coaching, including for yoga and health retreats, please email.

The Art and practice of Tai Chi, Qigong is a constant life long journey of self mastery, this is an internal process of personal evolution. To practice any form of meditation takes focus and discipline, this can be done in any environment indoors or outdoors, ideally in nature. Nature will hold the space you need, to calm your body and mind during your meditation. Recently, we did a Qigong meditation within the forest, of France, you can see my clothing is for outdoors winter, with wellies! My teachers always reminded me, in sun or frost, rain or snow, if you have the beautiful surroundings of mother nature to do your practice, see this as a great gift of opportunity and enjoy! Make no excuses! If you thinking about meditating, today is a perfect time to begin.
The circle above is a symbolic meaning in Japanese called ENSO, a Zen circle representing strength; letting the mind be free for the body to create, this is where the art of practicing Tai Chi Qigong can assist us.
