Mandala symbolizing spiritual wholeness and unity, accompanying teachings on soul healing.


"When you heal the soul, the mind and the body follow." - Alberto Villoldo

Let yourself be touched by these beautiful teachings and make them a part of your life.


"Do you love this world? Do you cherish your humble and silky life?
Do you adore the green grass, with its terror beneath?
Do you also hurry, half-dressed and barefoot, into the garden, and softly, and exclaiming of their dearness, fill your arms with the white and pink flowers, with their honeyed heaviness, their lush trembling, their eagerness to be wild and perfect for a moment, before they are nothing, forever?"


What moment in your life have you felt most alive and how can you integrate that aliveness into your daily routine?

On the Wisdom and the Meaning of Life, Carl Jung

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

There is no coming to consciousness without pain.

The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are."


How closely aligned are you with your true self, and what steps can you take to move closer to it?


"This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out
for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.”


"Is there a specific emotion or situation you find hard to welcome? What might this 'unwelcomed guest' be trying to reveal to you?"


"Like all explorers, we are drawn to discover what’s out there without knowing yet, if we have the courage to face it."


"Is there a specific emotion or situation you find hard to welcome? What might this 'unwelcomed guest' be trying to reveal to you?"

The invitation, Oriah Mountain Dreamer

"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.

I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me  how old you are.

I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love for your dream for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon…

I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain mine or your own without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy mine or your own if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful to be realistic to remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true.
I want to know if you can disappoint another 
to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy. I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure yours and mine and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.

I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments."


When faced with pain—either mine or your own—how do you respond? Can you sit with it without trying to hide, fade, or fix it?

A quote, By Kahlil Gibran

"Let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.”


In what ways do you and your partner "sing and dance together and be joyous" while letting each other be alone?

LOST, David Whyte

"Stand still. The trees ahead and the bushes beside you Are not lost.
Wherever you are is called Here,
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger, Must ask permission to know it and be known.
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,
I have made this place around you, If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.

No two trees are the same to Raven.
No two branches are the same to Wren.
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you, You are surely lost.
Stand still. The forest knows Where you are. You must let it find you.”


What does 'Here' mean for you right now, emotionally, physically, or spiritually?


“We’re at a stage now where we are collectively finding out that the myths we were functioning under are not functional. Because the myth was, if you had enough, you would be happy. And we have enough, and we’re not happy. And we are the culture that has the most, really. We in the Western world have the most. And we’re not happy. And so, in a way, that myth is dying. And that’s where one of the major transitions is. Whether it gets violent at that point or just matures in an evolutionary sense, that’s something for all of us to work on, to help it become a smooth evolutionary sense, where people, instead of grabbing for more, start to become more.”


What are the "myths" you've grown up believing about what it takes to be happy? How have these myths shaped your actions and expectations?
