The disconnection between the brain and the body are the focus of this film as it takes you on a soul searching journey covering science, nature and creativity.
It also covers how our brain is encouraged to be imbalanced through the dominance of the left hemisphere in modern society.
As a coach and mentor who has treated many children, I often have to address this imbalance that the majority of schools have caused in children.
This film is well worth watching as an introduction to topics such as intuition, mindfulness and the impact of stress on the mind and body.
The Soul Of A Butterfly – Refections on a life’s journey
By Muhammad Ali
A intimate insight into the mind and beliefs of the late, great Muhammad Ali from childhood through to his struggle with Parkinson’s disease later in life.
A truly inspiring and humbling read.
The best comment when he talks about his illness:
“I have gained more than I have lost….I have never had a more powerful voice than I have now.”
A heart felt book of a true champion inside and outside the boxing ring, with uncompromising beliefs that resulted in phenomenal courage.
The Space – The centre of resilience, courage & healing
We have full time premises opening in January that will be the first to finally combine movement, meditation, psychology and nutrition within each course.
Modern therapy is far to fragmented to initiate any real degree of transformation and we have stalled at coping methods as proof of recovery.
Trauma and stress have huge physical implications and as such, any matters of transforming the mind must involve movement awareness where participants get an intimate connection with their own physical conditioned patterns of stress.
We will keep you undated with further developments.
Saying of the week.
“To walk down a path where
great men have been is an
honor itself, for a few
privileged men. But to blaze
ones own trail unequaled to
thee; Is a tribute to greatness
that few men shall see..”
A question I got asked this week.
“What is the single activity I can do for my low energy levels?”
This question was from a busy mum short on time and energy.
Although this answer to this question could differ depending on circumstances, lifestyle etc, I would advise Yoga or Chi Gung most of the time for anyone short on time, energy and is feeling regularly exhausted.
These arts produce energy without having to expend it in order to gain it, such as with conventional gym work.
A lot of people I have coached are close to burnout or are recovering from it. They have successfully used Yoga or Chi Gung to create energy as well as create the space necessary to see how and why they got into a burnt out state in the first place.
Many of these classes also teach seated meditation, so you get greater benefits from the combination of controlled, breath orientated gentle movements, combined with the stillness of seated meditation.
A very powerful combination which delivers phenomenal results.
