How Vulnerable Are You?

How Vulnerable Are You?

The word vulnerability and truth have been two words that come up a lot for me this week. I've sat with some deep lessons and integrations that have shifted a part of my soul.

But what does it mean to be vulnerable? To be vulnerable can be defined as exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed, be it physically or emotionally.


My question to you is how often do you allow yourself to feel vulnerable? How often do you allow yourself to be and feel, truly seen by yourself or those around you? It’s not something we practice or even know how to feel into, without expressing or experiencing fear. We tend to shut the vulnerability down and out before it has a chance to even be felt or heard. Often through fear of opening the flood gates and not being able to close them again.

New Year, Not A New You.

New Year is a time for many to refresh, start over or begin something new. A chance for us to put into action and implement the many things that we want to do, see and achieve in our lives. It can also be an incredibly testing and tough time for many, as we transition out of holiday mode, Christmas and New year celebrations, the post festive splurge and often, lots of alcohol and sugary foods which can leave us feeling less than our best. Holiday celebrations and the start of a New Year can leave us feeling depleted, down and even questioning our life choices.

For some, it’s a winter in a literal sense, and for others, it’s merely a winter of mind.

What’s all this fascination with meditation? Meditation has arguably become a trendy buzzword in recent years, and is part and parcel of our avo toast, lulu pants + yoga sweating culture.

BUT WHAT EVEN IS MEDITATING?

Meditation can be described as focusing one's mind for a period of time, in silence or with the aid of chanting, for religious or spiritual purposes or as a method of relaxation.

Synonyms: contemplate, think about, consider, ponder, cogitate, muse.

The Rise of Yin Yoga in Popular Culture.

The Rise of Yin Yoga in Popular Culture.

The rise of yin yoga has been steadfast over the last five years within yogic communities with as many as fifty weekly classes popping up across London, but is it popular culture attracting the masses or is this a sign of something that runs deeper than the latest trend.

Is this a city awakening?
