Being kind to yourself is the main theme with my students these weeks. Young students from not so easy backgrounds that have close to never learned the art of taking care of themselves.
How do we do that? Well, that is as variable as we are people but one thing is sure – without a sense of body…it becomes foggy. Knowing ones own borderlines from the bodysensations; tactile, sight, hearing and listening is a helpfull gateway in the proces of being kind to oneself. To know: What do I prefer? What feels good to me? Where and with whom do I flourish, grow and spread my wings?
Questions my students are invited to ask themselves each day when we go for our long walks in the woods. In silence because in silence you have a chance to hear the answers.
Over time the knowledge grows in their bodies and minds. They know when to say no and yes to suggestions, when to move forward and when to make a hold and re-think things. A wonderfull, giving (for all) process that over time and in the coming years of their lives seems to have a profound meaning. Study-/friendship-/health- and living wise.

Every Monday and Tuesday morning I take a 60 minutes walk with my students. In nature. Young people age 18-30, soft and sensitive sometimes feeling blue and low. We climb, hang out and do trunk-medicine. After 10 minutes: Mood gone, high vibration!
The Japanese have a word for this: “Shinrin-yoku” meaning “forest bathing” – a mindfull bath in the forest´s healing oils.
Did you know that trees give off organic compounds that support our “NK” (natural killer) cells that are part of our immune system’s way of fighting illness? Scientific studies demonstrate these healing effects:
* Increased energy level
* Boosted immune system functioning with an increase in the body’s Natural Killer (NK) cells
* Reduced blood pressure
* Reduced stress
* Improved mood
* Increased ability to focus, even in children with ADHD
* Accelerated recovery from surgery or illness
* Improved sleep
Go enjoy your forest walk and let me know how it works.
Goal driven? I always realise the trance of setting one goal after the other when the scenery changes. You know that feeling?
Cure? Attitude of gratitude. Take time each day to devote your attention to what is already thriving in your life.
It works wonders – your breath suddenly calms down, your perspecitve widens and your sense of flow, beingness and grounding grows. So much to be gratefull for; relationships, friends, difficulties that get solved, stuck feelings that are transformed…
Easy to say, I know, when the office temporarily has moved to heavenly conditions. But hey – it´s only temporary as all around us is. After that a new scenery emerges, and another and… all to be grateful for.
Let Tao proceed to do nothing and yet leave nothing undone.
I hold 1:1 sessions in Mindfull coaching. Book under “Contact” and I´ll make a session.
Last week I completed a six months long education with 16 hours examination. Lots of feedback from co-students and teachers (yoga). 26 students, all felt the so familiar nervousness also called fear. Being exposed bodily and mentally on stage is in itself a stretch. Receiving feedback//critics on top – is really a teeth shaker and mouth drier.
The group decided silently not to fall into the well known trap of pointing fingers but share from an honest, loving, open heart. The good stuff and the stuff to work on.
Healing fear together is such a liberating experience. Friends, colleagues, lovers, family members. Maybe The Most important job of all. Dive under the surface together and face whatever tightens us up and breathe through it. Expose ourselves to it and accept that we sometimes don´t know what lies behind. But we trust the opening that awaits on the other side. Just Like the yoga-asanas teach us. Open up to our true authenticity, love and compassion.
The World needs our healed hearts.
One of the more rewarding subjects I share with my students is the inevitable setbacks in Conscious Living. Setbacks that in themselves are grow-backs – meaning; challenges to expand from. No matter how honest we have been with ourselves, how close to the core we feel – life gives us constantly opportunities to more conscious choices.
I know the reactions beforehand: “You can`t mean it!? MORE work, more inner archeology…?”
Funny enough, if we compare – what I often do – lifting the consciousness with art, we would never expect a Picasso to say: “I’ve seen it all, tried it all, no more to investigate.”
Same goes for Conscious Living. Its an art-form that walks in spirals; expansion, digest, loose sight, look deeper, broaden the perspective, go higher…on and on ????
