Beat Festive Stress

How to beat festive stress

This is how my Christmas’s used to go… Try to ignore that it’s happening.   Can’t ignore it as I’ve now got kids so from Dec 1st we are in full swing Chirstmas mode with advent calendars, tree and decorations.  Thank goodness I never heard about the Elf on the Shelf until I realised what hard work it would be. Try to ignore it some more. Worry about money – look at the list to buy for and crumple.  &nbs […]

Book Recommendation - The Island

Book Recommendation: The Island by Aldous Huxley

Did you get around to reading our Yoga Book Club Book, The Island by Aldous Huxley? It explores some interesting ideas about what a utopian society might look like. Beyond his exploration of psychedelics Aldous Huxley was interested and involved in Eastern philosophical ideas and practices.
