cleaning the inbox Apr 07, 2024

There are so many different things I wanted to write about today. Yesterday I attended an 'office hours' session with the Center for Courage and Renewal where I am undertaking a 'circle of trust' facilitation program. I have to deliver a practice session in a few weeks time and I had done very...

the next quarter Mar 31, 2024

Happy Sunday! I know for a lot of people this particular Sunday is a leisurely day off that will be spent with families and friends... for others it will be the 21st day of Ramadan and the fasting and everything that goes with that continues! I feel compelled to send an invitation for you to...

radical or humble... or both? Mar 24, 2024

(Picture of skateboarding which I believe is both radical and humbling... Take a look at Aunty Skates!)

The word radical is everywhere these days... and whilst it is motivating and directional, I also find the concept of being 'radical' can be quite energy zapping. Let me explain...

pit stops Mar 17, 2024

This week marks the end of the first week of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting where Muslims all over the world participate in what is a 'dry fast' from sunrise to sunset - yes this means 'not even water'! I had a very different attitude to it this time. I decided to be much clearer about my...

being late & being human Mar 10, 2024

I start this email by knowing it might be a little late. Last week was the last class of my improvisation course for a while so today I was free on a Sunday afternoon and I went to see my mum. Problem is I accidentally left my laptop at home so am writing this after I got back!...

endings & starts Mar 03, 2024

They say 'set out your gym clothes the night before.'

They say 'wake up and put one foot on the floor.'

They say 'start even when you don't want to...'

It can be difficult thought can't it? 

This morning, Sunday 3rd March, was a morning where I really didn't want my slow cup of coffee to...

x3 — sanctuary — heart Feb 25, 2024

It has been full on! In addition to the coaching group supervision session that I led last week I attended three supervisions: I was in an all day supervision training to further enhance my skills (always a student!), I had a group supervision session with my colleagues, and I had a creative...

intuition, radical candor, & plant yourself Feb 18, 2024

Last week I did some hard things and some very joyful things. The most challenging thing was requesting a proof copy of a chapter I have written for a book. There seemed to be some hesitancy on sharing the pdf of the 'final' version — but I have been here before. Last year I had a...

truth telling — Windsor Castle — welcome Feb 11, 2024

Me — If I ever say anything that starts to feel like too much you have full permission to tell me to stop.

PLT — Thank you. I know. But that's why I come to you.

Me —I try and say things that I know no one else will tell you.

PLT— That's why I come to you,...

moving in and out of yourself Feb 04, 2024

Something I haven't done for a while on a Sunday was to cycle on my stationary bike. As I did my class this morning Robin Arzon, my instructor said 'You woke up today. Might as well be a bad ass.' 

That reminded me of the obvious - I did wake up today... and I have things to, stuff to get...

reflect & renew Jan 28, 2024

January is a month of reflection and renewal for me. 

Renewal is a word that you might not naturally associate with January — it feels more like a December word!  I believe that ingredients of renewal include reflecting and then another review, followed by planning,...

18 — breathe — 5 arguments Jan 21, 2024

How is it possible that seven days can be so long and so short at the same time? Sometimes even the weekend doesn't feel like the weekend, right? The third week of January felt like a catapult into 2024! 

On Saturday I attended an event where the Mary Oliver quote was discussed:
