A girl went into a bar…

The other night, I was out for dinner with my friends. We had planned to go dancing. But over the course of our meal, one by one they dropped off. Too tired, getting up early the next day... It's interesting what happens when you have been looking forward to something and then it doesn't happen. I live in a village in the middle of nowhere with one one access road still standing. Apart from work and my women's workshops and events, I do not meet a lot of people. So the prospect of going out in t [...]

Why gossiping is bad for you

We have all done it. At work. With friends and family. Even with strangers. Gossip. It’s probably the number one topic after the weather. It generally makes for easy conversation. Why do we gossip?

On bending a spoon

I may have told you before that I was in London recently, attending a workshop by the famous Elizabeth Gilbert (she wrote Eat, Pray, Love). And after that workshop I flew on to Dallas to meet my wonderful friend Laura, who I knew had attended on of Elizabeth Gilbert's workshops, this one however with the equally famous Martha Beck. So Laura told me that Martha made the whole room bend spoons. And I was like: what??? So Laura showed me. And I tried. And I couldn't. And I sat with it. And the next [...]

Are you being eaten by energy vampires?

It seems that lately, all I talk about is energy. I held a workshop on it recently. I wrote a blog post about it last year. My friends and clients all seem to be lacking energy. I myself have slowed down a lot this year and made sure I got enough rest. And yet... We are still tired, tuckered out, stressed, energy-less. How come? Besides all of the above (awareness, stress, slowing down, resting etc) I believe there is one other big enemy: Energy vampires (as my friend Nicole calls them). We were [...]

Am I in love?

There's a book I have been reading on and off lately. It's called The Book of She - Your Heroine's Journey into the Heart of Feminine Power I have a kind of love/hate relationship with this book. Similar to back in the days when I read the book 'Women Who Run with Wolves' People were raving about it, suggested I read it. I did, or let's say I tried. But didn't really 'get it'. Much of this She-book is in line with what I coach my clients on. Some of it is a bit too 'spiritual', too 'feminine' to [...]
