drawing with hand, head and heart: beyond the right side of the brain

the great slowdown: why breaking down is waking up

The history of humankind is like a maze; a collection of pathways, designed to lead us from a beginning to an end goal with the journey entailing much retracing of steps, the occasional dead end and from time to time that sense that we’ve all been here before — after all, aren’t those who don’t …

breathwork: coherence and union
