L E T T E R from Jac – Dear Little Screw

This is such a beautiful way to describe the limitations of the human mind. Often we get so caught up in our ‘little screw’ state that we forget about the whole machine (the Universe) let alone seek to know it. We get indignant and resentful and frustrated and we lose sight of the larger picture…

L E T T E R from Jac- The Passing Weather Storms

I know, yet six weeks into this year, there is much weariness. A fatigue, that became like a heavy coat last year, ill-fitting and musty is being worn past its time. Speaking with students in all corners of the globe, a similar pendulum of determination, positivity, and then despair and frustration. What a wild time…

Letter from Jac – Some Days

There are some days when we find this impossibly hard. The idea that everything can speak to us of passion and invites us to cherish it. Yet it’s happening, it’s true, whether we embrace it or not. It’s a commitment, to see that every moment is a new moment, a new life lived. Each breath,…

Letter from Jac – Bringing Forth What You Are

I know my creativity and consciousness is in direct proportion to the amount of spaciousness I have in my day. If it is expansive, I am productive and keen and engaged with lots of breaks and time to breathe and recover task to task. If it’s flat stick, I end up weary, burnt out, and…

Letter from Jac – What You Cannot See

Now I have started art school, will I be one of those people that keep throwing it into the conversation? Hahaha likely yes! BUT I want to share with you the juiciest bits of what I am learning. And I learnt a technique that I thought was such a brilliant way to overcome our conditioning.   Basically, when you…

Letter from Jac – An open, expansive mind

I’ve begun studying art at art school, just 1-2 days a week, and yesterday was my first day. It’s amazing that excitement of a fresh start isn’t it? With the deep discomfort of being a beginner, and of trying something you know is going to push you deeply, and upset your ego immensely! Dale, my teacher said something yesterday which…

Letter from Jac – 2021, An Uncertain Start

  Hello there, After much mulling about, I’m still unsure of the best path forward with the Letters. Do we do daily? Weekly? A few times a week? Keep it spontaneous? Do we continue to offer them for free? Or do we move to a deeper subscription based model that I have been toying with…

L E T T E R from Jo – Love Is The Answer

Whatever the question, Love is always a good answer. So simple, right? Nonetheless, I find it sometimes hard to remember, to remember that love is in fact a good answer. This remembering is my try-for, my intention, my ambition. More love infiltrating all the nooks and crannies of daily life, colouring experiences and moments, gently…

L E T T E R from Jo – The Magic Of Yet

“Yet”, a powerful word, brimming with potential and possibilities, the perfect finisher to many sentences, the opener of doors, the cheerleader of growth, it’s tiny and jam packed with promise. You can not over use it. It signals the attitude of a learner, someone who is open to developing, changing and growing. It suggests we…

L E T T E R from Jac – Just The Weather

It’s so important to remember this. The other day flying to Sydney, I had an old friend visit with force, anxiety. It was a combination of factors that brought my anxiety in, the perfect storm really. I had forgotten the grip of anxiety, and it was a wonderful reminder of how horrible it can feel when gripped by…
