How does the longer brighter summer days effect you?
The longer daylight hours entices our minds into an overwhelming spiral of adventure and excitement – but are you stopping and checking in on yourself?
Do you stop for a while – and re-connect with your true self? Its an all essential ingredient to our well being and inner happiness. Self acknowledgement and self love, a component to our overall well being.
In order for myself to do this I had to put a workshop on hold – the background effort and thought into each workshop can be overwhelming – during the summer excitement.
Admit, listen and acknowledge where you are being overwhelmed in your life. Pause and nurture your self in order to move on forwards and stronger.

Life in general
Its been a full on and busy season for our family, every weekend was full of celebrations and parties, and gathering of friends and family. Weeks were spent searching for cool refreshing wild swimming waters for the children.
How has your season been – did you enjoy the energy of the endless hot British summer? or did you find it overwhelming, and full of high demands and expectations?

Around the vegetable garden
A bountiful hot summer of deep red tomatoes bursting with wholesome flavour, unbelievingly sweet Victoria plums, a few medium sized chunky cucumbers, bountiful dark green courgettes, juicy red raspberries, bright pink red rhubarb a daily sprinkle of baby spinach fresh from the garden to a compliment for every meal. Have you managed to grow anything in your natural space this year? If not find a local community which you can join and get your hands in the earth.

Its time to settle back into the rhythm of contemplation and creativity to relaunch the Autumn workshops and invites will be going out soon, so we look forward to meeting up with the regulars to relax, be mindful and create.
