Sacred Self-care

Chloe Isidora
Authors:
Chloe Isidora

'Chloe is an absolute gem. As an early mentor and then friend I watched her turn her creative gifts from fashion into something so giving and nurturing. She draws on her experience of the yin and yang of life to offer women something tangibly spiritual to incorporate into their modern lives. I've watched her turn three back to back challenging events into rocks to leap into the great unknown and become the softest, strongest gem.' - Jasmine HemsleyDuring the average day, most people's time is consumed by thinking 'I need to do this. Can't forget that. How did I come across? What did that person think of me? Why are they acting like that?' Our endless thoughts can run havoc and often cause a state of stress and anxiety - the mind can be a very useful and brilliant tool, but when we slip into unhelpful thought patterns, with the same story going around and around on repeat, it's exhausting.In Sacred Self-Care, Chloe Isidora offers an antidote, with ceremonies and rituals that ease the mind and connect you to your heart space. Rituals can range from the smallest act, such as lighting a candle or blessing your food, to a ceremony involving many people singing and dancing. These processes encourage you to slow down, to honour the moment and to connect to something greater than yourself. Learn how to create a sacred space, hold a ceremony and weave ritual into everyday life. Through practices suggested throughout the book, you will create opportunities throughout the day, week and year to experience reconnecting and receive your own inner guidance, recognizing the feeling of following your joy, just as Chloe herself has.Chapters include:Sacred self-lovingAffairs of the heartFeminine empowerment ritualsCelebrationsGathering with friendsStaying connected

The Little Book of Intentional Living

Carolyn Boyes
Authors:
Carolyn Boyes

By living with intention we are actively shaping our lives, establishing how we wish to invest our energy and time on this Earth. Through the processes of self-enquiry, assessing our values, visioning and mindfulness we can ensure that our beliefs and actions are in alignment, discard those aspects of our lives that no longer serve us and manifest the existence we want.By using easy-to-follow tools, strategies and exercises, leading life coach and speaker, Carolyn Boyes, shows us how, in this fast-paced, demanding world, which is so full of distractions, we can move from living a busy life - one that we endure - to an intentional life - one that we have chosen.

By the Sea

Dr Deborah Cracknell
Authors:
Dr Deborah Cracknell

In this stunning book, intuition and instinct meet modern science as the therapeutic benefits of being in, on or by the sea are explained and explored, and how, if we look after the oceans they will, in turn, look after us. There is something about the vastness of the oceans, which are significantly larger than the continents combined, that has drawn humans in a significant way since the beginning of coastal communities. Throughout history, people have gravitated to live near the sea, it is part of the survival instinct. Water also has huge cultural and spiritual significance for people through the ages and for centuries we looked to the sand and surf as a fully-stocked medicine cabinet. Despite the widespread intuitive feeling that being by the water makes us happier and healthier, there hasn't been much scientific evidence to quantify this connection. Until now. Environmental psychology is the study of how the natural environment makes us feel, think and behave, and scientists in this area are discovering the tangible benefits of breathing in the fresh sea air.Reasons to spend time by the sea:1. Just looking at the sea can promote reductions in heart rate and improvements in mood.2. The negative ions in sea air accelerate your ability to absorb oxygen, and balance your seratonin levels.3. The bracing climate is especially beneficial to the respiratory organs and the skin, and also improves circulation and strengthens the body's defences.4. Spending time by the sea promotes better mental health.5. When you are by the sea you are more likely to exercise.

Dreams

Tree Carr
Authors:
Tree Carr

Discover how to create your own dream practice to help facilitate your work and relationships, self-exploration, soul growth, emotional healing and personal empowerment. Human beings have a long history of looking to their dreams for guidance, inspiration, spiritual connection and decision making. Kings consulted seers and gifted dreamers for political advice, and tribe leaders took heed from the prophetic dreams of their shamans. Dreams have led to inventions and scientific discoveries as well as the creation of moving works of art. So why is the modern human so disconnected from our dreams? Our quiet, reflective consciousness has been superseded by the busy, noisy and distractive components of modern culture. Dreams will teach you how, through simple intent, mindfulness, reflection, record keeping, plant work and lifestyle changes, we can enable a deeper connectivity and understanding of our dream world.

Pause

Danielle Marchant
Authors:
Danielle Marchant

"Danielle Marchant is a beguiling leader - a refreshing mix of pragmatic and soulful. She facilitates with a light hand and an engaged heart" Queen of RetreatsPause is an important message ready to be heard.We check our phones an average of 221 times a day, we have apps that help us sleep and remind us to be mindful while we secretly measure our success in 'likes'. Time is our luxury and yet with technology we are never able to leave the office, even when we aren't there. The fear of missing out makes us rush from one thing to the next, not really taking any of it in. Pause allows you to finally put yourself, your feelings and your intuition first. Learning to say no, doing the things that make you feel good, and not doing the things that don't make you feel good - these are not self indulgent, listening to your own heart and wisdom doesn't make you selfish, slowing down to appreciate your life isn't lazy or unambitious. It is an ancient message, but still just as strong; when you pause to take care of yourself and your own life, you become the person you're meant to be. This book gives you the space and the practices so that you can learn how to benefit from the power of the pause. It uses nature, creativity and your inner spirit to allow the energy to flow freely once again. There are exercises to ground you, give access to your intuition, to breathe deeply and allow your monkey mind to settle. It gives you time to explore what is big in your life right now, to know deep down what matters. It opens you up, allowing you to freely experience all the pain, the joy and the twists and turns of life. It gives you back your courage, your fire and your connection.
