What can we learn to create from our earth?

Traditional Ute Prayer (native North American)

Cosmos daisies... the whole world in a flower

Cosmos daisies… the whole world in a flower

Earth teach me stillness as the grasses are stilled with light.

Earth teach me suffering as old stones suffer with memory.

Earth teach me humility as blossoms are humbled with beginning.

Earth teach me caring as the mother who secures her young.

Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone.

Earth teach me limitations as the ant which crawls on the ground.

Earth teach me freedom as the eagle which soars in the sky.

Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall.

Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring.

Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life.

Earth teach me to remember kindness as dry fields weep with rain.

4 Rooms for Living In – essentials for self nurture and self care…

Clara Jones & I first connected via Twitter… and the rest, as they say, is history. Living proof that there still is genuine, mutually supportive and authentic relationships to be made across the twittering classes.

Like me Clara is a coach who works mainly with women with North Wales as herphysical base whilst she weaves her unique blend of creative coaching, mentoring and personal development with women 1-2-1 or in groups across the world.

I can now say I am in the great company of an ever growing number of inspirational women who Clara interviews for her website and blog http://www.4roomsliving.co.uk/

I have answered a range of questions all about different aspects of self nurture and care and where I get side tracked, reach burn out and simple ways I do my best each day to stay on track…

You can keep up to date with what is inspiring Clara each day via her Twitter account…  @4roomsliving

And keep re-visiting her website as she add more and more new women’s stories of self care & love… inspirational and safe haven to re-visiting when you feel a wee bit wobbly, as is natural. Happy reading & sharing!

Self nurture and self care… what’s inspired me to keep on keepin’ on

How to grow robust & sustainable creative businesses?

Well it’s a good question and not one that can be ironed out over a cuppa…

I understand how overwhelming it can be to look at making your business and your life more ‘green’ and/or sustainable – this has been a passion of mine ever since primary school and a workshop we took part in on packaging – see the slide with the After Eights boxes…

Open To Create… is my day to day expression in the world of being part of co-creating an inheritable world for many future generations of all species on this planet.

I trust you enjoy and find inspiration in the slides from my workshop “Giving Your Business The Green Light” run in partnership with University of East London as part of their Make It Global programme with The Centre of Excellence for Women’s Entrepreneurship

Spring has sprung…

Now more light is shining on the matters at hand my creative flow seems more present and budding with new creative project idea and the energy to complete on those tasks even the long winter nights in didn’rt seem to inspire me to tackle…
