This week I’ve visited the beautiful island of a Ometepe. I was fortunate enough to spend an afternoon on a perma culture farm called Bonafide. (How amazing are cocoa leaves?) The more I learn about perma culture the more I wonder at how inefficient and environmentally damaging large scale agribusiness can be. The ‘hippies’ in the woods know a lot about about the symbiotic nature of plants and how to get maximum yields without insecticides or fertilizers.  Their approach of working with nature mirrors the natural approach to healing that I resonate with.

My new lap pool. We’ve moved into a former hotel and one of the advantages of that are the facilities!

Anyone want to come to Nicaragua for some treatments, surfing and sunsets?
.
My treatments are evolving to include a blend of osteopathy, natural movement, P-DTR, nutrition and mindset training . All overlaid with a sense of wonder at how amazing our bodies can be.

We’re trying out some natural therapies in Costa Rica. Starting with mudding and thermal springs. The Japanese would also say we are forest bathing, which is simply walking in the forest, disconnecting and becoming  more aware of the nature that surrounds you.

I think @lucy.paget must have had a hard day. I see she has the wine bottle and pint glass ready!

Today I played my first game of rugby in 15 years. It was fun to find out if this almost 41-year-old body was still up for the challenge. I’m sure I will be sore tomorrow, but I’m thankful for the last 2 years of #movnat that helps prepare the body for almost everything.

I’ve seen the future… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It involves my daughter standing like a guardian angel over a post apocalyptic world ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
or at least that’s what I thought when I put some filters on this photo!  The photo was taken on the side of Mombachu Volcano near Granada, Nicaragua.

Today we learnt to make chocolate from the magical cocao bean. Apparently it tastes better if you sing a lot and get very messy!

We got to enjoy the sunset from Villa Loma del Socorro. Run by Richard and Yasser, the Villa is a high-end bed and breakfast  catering to couples. Truly a slice or paradise.  #villalomadelsocorro

Does anyone know what the name of this tree and fruit are? It’s extraordinary the way the fruit grows out of the trunk.  I’m wondering whether or not I should eat it. #eat200foods

Kids surf lesson today. Nicaragua has some amazing beaches only accessible by 4x4. Before the political unrest this beach was a Mecca for surfers. Today we had it too ourselves!
