When you ask someone to share in the most intimate experience of your life (birth), you want to ensure they are the right person. Anna-Maria (@annamaria_boelskov), our doula, brought resourcefulness, clarity, calm and most importantly, love, to support us in bringing Indi into the world. She was literally there with us all the way - from our long, expansive meet ups before birth to the hours of labour using massage, essential oils, yoga and her deep wisdom of the birthing process, to the support given postpartum with lactation, wellbeing and parenthood. Anna-Maria is a magical woman with deep empathy and intuition in knowing exactly how to help and support at the right time. We are so deeply grateful for your service, a profound gift 🙏
All love is love of Self.
We know this when we look into the eyes of our children or the eyes of a lover. We easily experience deep unity. But can we learn to find love in those beyond our immediate circle? Those who we don’t normally connect with? Those who don’t share the same opinions as us? Those that are “different”?
When we find it within ourselves to expand our hearts to love Beings of all kind, then we have found whole love. We have claimed our birth right to experience love in all realms. We have realised true love of Self.
India-Rose’s first Group Meditation. We are so grateful to belong to this wonderful community of Meditators. Having spent some time in our baby cave love bubble, we were reminded the importance of community and how much we love ours!
Community is a place to connect, support each others’ growth, share new ideas and ways of living, and belong to a group of ‘like-hearted’ individuals in order to experience more bliss and joy.
We host these Sunday night sessions weekly. They start with a Group Meditation and follow on to share and discuss experiences and ancient wisdom over cups of delicious tea.
When you learn Vedic Mecitation, you are welcomed into our growing community of Meditators. These sessions are included complimentary in order to support you with your practice.
We’ll be teaching a Vedic Meditation course in early December. DM if you’re interested to find out more about how learning to meditate will eliminate stress in order to reveal your true nature - bliss.
Creation breeds creation...

A different set of daily activities - changing nappies, feeding, settling, rocking...
Less need for sleep
More quick and efficient ways of self care
A new life
Happy 1 Month Birthday to our baby girl, India-Rose. The world is a far better place for having you here. Thank you for the absolute joy, love and entertainment you have given us this last month. You are truly divine.
I’m looking forward to sharing my journey through motherhood with you all.
Surrender - to soften into what is.
Surrender - to allow and to receive.
Surrender - to be ok even when not ok.
Surrender - to offer your attention to the highest best.
Surrender - to accept and embrace the present moment.
Surrender - to love.
My teacher, once said, “something is only as sacred as you make it”. Lately I’ve been exploring ways in which I can bring more sacredness to my life. Although I have a daily practice that helps to align me with the flow of life, I’m not talking about this specifically. We can include love and devotion in every moment. The way we wash the dishes. The way we smile at a stranger. When we cut a piece of fruit for an afternoon snack. In every moment, there is an opportunity to be still and bring conscious love and attention to what you are doing - no matter how small or mundane the moment.
Have you ever experienced a level of sacredness amongst the norm?
I’d love to hear about it! 🙏
Last week we celebrated Guru Purnima. ‘Guru’ translates from Sanskrit to ‘remover of darkness’ so a Guru is not merely someone who gives light, but rather a teacher who facilitates you to remove ignorance so your innate light shines through. ‘Purnima’ means full moon. This is the night of the greatest full moon of the year. It's an opportunity to celebrate all the teachers in one's life - anyone that you feel has enhanced your life and helped you to remove darkness in order to your expose light. We all have teachers in our lives and they come in different forms. Perhaps it's the happy coffee barista who gave you a smile for no reason, or someone you witness dealing with a difficult situation in a graceful way, or perhaps they are a family member who you find difficult to deal with and the situation asks of you to communicate better. Either way, I love that we are presented with teachers and teachings in every given moment as it proposes an opportunity for us to grow and rise up.
