Let’s Talk About Meditation

Let's Talk About Meditation If you're like many people who have limited experience with meditation, chances are the word conjures up images of monks fasting in caves; tie-died hippies chanting 'OM' over vegan, organic, hemp-green smoothies; or yogis in white, getting all bendy at the knees in ways you can't even imagine a body being capable [...]

What the Mandala Said…

Sometimes, I have crummy days. When I do, I try to find a way to go within - to connect with myself and uncover the truth of what is bothering me. Sometimes it's easy. Sometimes it's not. I do it anyway... Today, I didn't feel like doing anything at all, so I pulled out one of [...]

Introducing Fair Fees! (and Why They Matter)

2016 is already showing itself to be a year for facing challenges head-on, letting go of what isn't working, and making room for something better! The greatest challenge I have faced over the past 15 years of offering Counselling, Healing and Spiritual Support services has been to find the balance between running a sustainable, professional practice, [...]

The Confrontation Technique for Self-Mastery

On a call with a client today, this question arose: "How do I overcome long-standing habits & behaviors that are no longer working for me, but seem to be deeply embedded in my consciousness?". One way to address this is by using something called the Confrontation Technique for Self-Mastery. I originally encountered this technique via Dr. Paul [...]

10 Things Depression is NOT: A Primer for the Un-depressed (And Everybody Else)

I first published the following article in response to the death of Robin Williams, in August of 2014. I am inspired to share it with you again today because my world just very nearly lost another beautiful soul to suicide, and because we all need to remember not to forget. This isn't uplifting reading, but it [...]

Powerful Listening and the Way of “What Else..?”

I don't remember who said it, but there is great wisdom in the idea that the greatest barrier to effective communication is that we listen to respond, rather than to understand.

Learning to Trust…

Learning to trust is learning to let go of control. It is understanding that however much we wish it were otherwise - our desire for love, for acceptance, for fidelity, for fairness - has no jurisdiction over the actions of another. Learning to trust is embracing impermanence. It is releasing expectation. It is letting [...]

Well, THAT was unexpected!

  Holy moly! When Sean McIntyre from the Driftwood Newspaper contacted me a while ago, wanting to do a feature article about my Counselling & Healing Work for the Salt Spring Island Wellness Guide, I didn’t really know what to expect. I guess I figured he’d write a nice little article that would slip quietly between [...]
