October 2016 -Big waves and Autumn leaves

Published 14 October 2016

Big waves and Autumn leaves-gratitude, self-compassion and a look ahead to the retreats and events you can enjoy this Autumn with me.

So, I’m here at this point in the year, reflecting  on all I have achieved, overcome, and learnt (aol) personally. I feel this is a time for me to be so grateful and to see the bigger picture, as I pick myself up and keep walking after this year’s big waves. I know many of you have endured a great deal of challenge this year and also enjoyed some ease and even joy. So, now it really is Autumn, the year is drawing gently to a close after what seems to have been a very exciting and unpredictable year in so many ways. But as I always say -it’s all good!
