Our Time Here…

  I’m not sure if I will be able to put all this into words… I chose the images above as a way to convey hope, a love for nature and the small things in life. Our Time Here: Even though nature is in a crisis, and huge transformations and changes need to happen, EvenContinue reading “Our Time Here…”

An encounter with God

Yesterday, I had a lovely time, teaching special yoga in a local disabled centre. We reflected on kindness and on bodhicitta – wishing good things for ourselves, the persons we love, those we don’t like, all the sentient beings around us: the animals – pets and wild – plants, the planet… Everyone!

Badger Stories

“I would ask you to remember only this one thing,” said Badger. “The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them. If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed. Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. ThatContinue reading “Badger Stories”

What if people think I’m crazy?

Dear friends, I hope you are well and that you are enjoying Autumn wherever you are. I’m now getting ready for my next 6 day workshop which will start in exactly a week from now. My last workshop at Emerson College was in early June. It was the end of Spring, the days were longerContinue reading “What if people think I’m crazy?”

Entre Chien et Loup

Dear friends, First of all thank you. If you have ever attended any of my workshops, you may know how I like to stress out the importance of gratefulness. Gratitude is like magic. It is a beacon of light that can shine when we find ourselves in the dark. It’s a key. It opens doors.Continue reading “Entre Chien et Loup”


Birds are always in sync. They always arrive and leave at the right time. Seven years ago, my parents were driving in the French countryside, where they live. My dad noticed a black shape on the side of the road. As he got nearer, he found himself looking into the eyes of a fledgling crow whoContinue reading “Corvidae”

The Two Wolves

A few life times ago I made a vow. I vowed to dedicate my self to help animals. To alleviate their suffering and help them to be heard. I have tried a few things over the years. I waged a war against the world, but I realised that the war I was fighting against the outside world was alsoContinue reading “The Two Wolves”

The Wheel of Time…

I think a lot of people obsess with the weather when they are conversing. I have noticed that writers seem to be obsessed with time. Here we are, at the end of May. Boy turned 10 earlier on this month. I still dont understand where that time went…

When stories come and find you…

Hello friends, I always like to end my yoga classes with a story or a poem. Often the poem or story comes to me in one way or another and it wants to be shared. It finds its way in front of my eyes, perhaps because I need to read it myself, or perhaps someoneContinue reading “When stories come and find you…”

On Holding onto our fears…

I wanted to share this message inspired by our dog, Tara – some of you may recognise the picture of her at the beginning as it’s the photo I use on my Gravatar profile – It’s about turning towards our fears and the resulting exhilaration that arises within us through the feeling of accomplishment. Dogs conquer theirContinue reading “On Holding onto our fears…”
