Homeopathy as a Life Journey

What Brought Me Here? Homeopathy as a life journey. Lately I’ve been revising my courses for parents and reflecting on my own motivation and journey to natural health and homeopathy. Sometimes I wonder how I came to this place? I’d never heard of homeopathy growing up in Tipperary. I never imagined it would be such a big part of my life. This blog is

Self-Examination Requires Courage

Self-examination requires truth and courage. The art of living well requires us to self-investigate. To find the courage to open ourselves up to a journey of self-enquiry.

Vedanta and The Art of Living

The art of living is not just living, but living fully, and the art of living fully cannot be left to chance.

The fact that one of us will stand by the other's grave is evidence of that. It’s only a matter of when and how. How we end something will determine our next beginning. It requires maturity and emotional intelligence to

We can all change. We can all grow.

We can all change. We can all grow. And most times, we only change painful ways of relating in this world through experiencing pain and suffering. Those painful experiences became a catalyst for change. We woke up one day and thought “I don’t want to exist like this anymore”. And that’s the only thing we had to do! We made a choice that we

What is Addiction?

"Addiction isn't about alcohol and drugs. It's the absence of self. This absence is described as a hole in your soul. You can't love others when you are empty inside.
