L E T T E R from Jac – Renovating Our Mind Architecture

If you can imagine an architecture that your mind has constructed, like a matrix or 3D rendering, and we mentally live within that architecture. It has been built up over time through all our interactions, the societies we are within, our peers, our work environments. What we ‘know’ is simple what looks normal to us.…

L E T T E R from Jac – What Does Meaning Our Best Mean?

I think we all use the language ‘just do your best’ a lot when going through something challenging. Sometimes it’s ‘well I am sure they meant their best’ and is actually at times making excuses. Sometimes our best is kicking some serious goals, being energised and completely aligned and feeling exhilarated with the day. Sometimes…

I wanted to take a moment today to invite you to be kind to yourself. A lot of the time we are focused on being kind to others, sometimes at the cost to ourselves. Today I ask you, what is the single most kindest thing you can do to nurture yourself.  Some ideas; What part…

L E T T E R from Jo – Our Vibe Is Contagious

Have you ever sat and eaten a meal with someone who on that occasion was rushing through their food, barely chewing, barely finishing their mouthful, hastily getting through until their plate was empty? I have and I also have had the indigestion to prove it. I always feel my mouthfuls speeding up too like I’m…

L E T T E R from Jac – No Need For Hero’s

Often when we are in a crisis, we have no idea what to do. There’s not exactly a handbook on what to do when your friend says their partner is leaving them, or has been diagnosed with cancer, or say, a pandemic hits and wipes out a family member’s business. Compassion can be called into action through listening. Through…

L E T T E R from Jac – Harvesting Joy

Can you hold your sorrow more loosely? Could it be easily blown away with the wind, the seasons? How do you ensure you hold onto your joy?  Most of our happiness is not determined by our genetics, but by our experiences and our day-to-day lives, as found in the study by Lyubomirsky, Sheldon, & Schkade in 2005. In the Mauss et…

L E T T E R from Jac – Why Meditate?

The Buddha was once asked, “What have you gained from meditation?” He replied, “Nothing!” Then he continued, “However, let me tell you what I have lost: anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, and fear of old age and death.” What would you like to release as you step into the next year? Are you tired of being tired? Is stress stressing you…

L E T T E R from Jo – Sometimes We Will Win And Sometimes We Will Learn

L E T T E R from Jac – All Waves Shift and Change

Wisdom is knowledge put into action, refined over many seasons, carved out through many storms.  Wisdom is acceptance of what is whilst also putting our boots on the ground to change what should not be. Wisdom is clarity, creativity and consciousness all at play.  Wisdom is understanding, this too, shall pass. It always has, it…
