And finally, The Sacred Alone starts on Monday. For 14 days we practice the art of mindfully being with ourselves for 20 minutes a day. Twenty minutes to savour our morning coffee while reading an inspiring essay. Twenty minutes to close our eyes and sit in stillness before journaling our thoughts and dreams. Twenty minutes to check in with ourselves before we head off to work — or twenty minutes to close out the day, gently bringing our attention back to our bodies.

Even if you’ve never meditated before you’ll find the audios calming, gentle and surprisingly powerful. Plus I guide you through each meditation making it so much easier to keep your focus — they’re like five-minute soul boosters.

Happy weekend, loves! xo

Um, wow. What happened to this week?! There are three blog posts I hoped to start and a tonne of stuff I needed to get done and it’s all been shelved in favour of being sick. Again. That’s what happens when you help throw a birthday party for a darling 4-year-old boy and invite 30 of his little friends! While I lie in my bed and gather my strength *ahem* here’s some stuff I’ve enjoyed this week…
