Hope is a beggar
We're brought up to believe that hope is a wonderful thing, indoctrinated through religions and reinforced culturally through the ages through dogma and lack of critical thinking. We need to question more instead of mindlessly repeating words and sentiments and really...
Freedom from Dystopia – Creating a New World (Not Order)
We’ve created a narcissistic society out of the motivation to create one of balanced and healthy self-esteem. Somewhere, it took a turn into one of entitlement and it’s reflected in the fake personas that now exist in the world; seeking perfection externally in an almost androgynous complexion that is woefully compensating for an internal lack.
Creating Our New Norm Out of the Pandemic
Change is very often the very thing we need to get us out of a rut, despite the fact that many people say they hate it. It enables us to try new ways of being or take up new interests.
A New Manifesto for a Modern World
The world is transforming, whether we like it or not. This isn’t just happening to the UK, it affects us all globally.

To Detox or Not to Detox, That is the Question
Soon we will be in Stoptober, where the impetus is largely focused on giving up smoking. However, after several months of lockdown restrictions, it’s fair to say a good deal of us have engaged in consuming a little more alcohol, coffee and cake than originally...
Coping with Uncertainty
For many, trying something new triggers a fear of change – especially in our twilight years. There is a reluctance to changing tried and tested routines that take us away from comfort and familiarity which offer us a modicum of security in a somewhat turbulent and fast-changing world.
What does freedom mean?
The Covid-19 crisis has brought up a lot of emotions in people and brought out the best and the worst of human behaviour. We’ve seen people coming together, supporting neighbours and our NHS but we’ve also been witness to a significant amount of anger and injustice...
What does it mean to live consciously?
For many of us, the period of lockdown has made us look at life in a different way and perhaps embark on new habits or learn new technology. For some it has also brought up fears and one of the ways we can overcome these is to live more consciously. Living...
