  1. The dream manifesto.

    “All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” ? T.E. Lawrence

  3. Journalling for coaching.

    Did you know the late Carl Jung kept an art journal? With his visual diary he created small circular drawings he believed expressed his feelings and the archetypal realm of the collective concious.
    In Journalling for coaching we use questions to intentionally guide the exploration of an idea, issue or perceived limitation and the journal becomes the canvas we respond in. In art therapy, journalling is used creatively, less focus on words and more on imagery and artful expression which is great if you’re stuck on something and not great with words. Art is a medium for free flow expression and Creative Coach Lauren Castillo who will be co-facilitating next Saturdays workshop will help you achieve creative expression!

  8. Efficiency in leadership

    Efficiency in leadership rule no 1!
    Stop putting out fires!
    Someone who regularly steps in to solve problems for others is not only creating dependancy, they are not actually helping the other person build confidence, efficiency and resiliency. They are just training the other people to bring problems to them and providing a scape goat for people to take responsibility and accountability for their own issues. This will eventually lead to BURN OUT and is not a sustainable way to function.
    A more effective approach to develop peoples confidence and problem solving abilities is asking a simple question in this situation: What are you going to do about it? This one question alone invites solution focussed thinking, turns the responsibility ...

  12. Metafit and Meditation

    Metafit and Meditation was launched this morning under the glorious sunshine at Elwood Beach Park!
    It was my first Metafit training session at Elwood Beach Park (near the BBQ’s) for some fast paced exercise within a group, lead by Bianca at Blue Sky Fitness. She had us up, down and in a plank, sideways and commando crawling till my heart was racing fast and my legs were shaking and yes sweat was dripping off my chest. Hah! Luckily I managed not to collapse and with Bianca’s firm but friendly coaching I was motivated just to smash out one more exercise, I couldn’t give up…
    Metafit is total body-weight training. It will help you to burn fat, tone up, lose weight, build muscle and get fitter….all in 30 min sessions!

  15. How to make more zen at home.

    Is your home a sanctuary where you feel you can escape the grind and find some zen? I love to renew my home space to bring elements of life I love within it’s walls so that when I come home to rest, create, and share time with my beloved ones we are sheltered from stress and supported with life nourishing surroundings.

    According to Eastern philosophy elements of wood, water, fire, air, stone and metal bring about balance and we are encouraged to have blends of these elements in the home for maximum zen.
    Belongings such as your favourite art are also key to appreciating your space and making it ...
