Co-counselling course – a few places left

March 31st, 2012 by Tonya

A little nudge for those of you interested in co-counselling, there are a couple of places left on my five-day spring training, starting April 21st. I've been teaching co-counselling for years and would recommend it as highly now as when I started! Successful completion of this certificated course means you can set up reciprocal co-counselling sessions – for free, at any time you like – with anyone in the growing worldwide co-counselling network Read More...

Introducing The Joy Club

March 31st, 2012 by Tonya

As we allow the layers of 'patterning' that we've built around us to fall away, like the layers of an onion, what's left, in my experience at least, is an unfettered sense of joy. Not the 'happy clappy' joy that many of us associate with certain forms of religious worship - though I'm sure that has its place, too - but the simple, unadulterated joy of being Read More...

Are you humble enough to crumble?

March 30th, 2012 by Tonya

I had about 25 responses to my The Power of Vulnerability post in last month's newsletter. It certainly struck a chord somewhere! Many people said how sharing my own tenderness had enabled them to open to their own (one reader said she was so moved that she'd spent hours crying tears of release and had felt a lot better as a result), others particularly resonated with Brene Brown's video (thank you, Alex, for sending in the link for that one) Read More...

A word on resilience

March 30th, 2012 by Tonya

I was on my way to The Starting Over Show a few months ago when someone drove into the back of my car. Bit of universal humour there, methinks! I'd arranged with the organiser, who I was really looking forward to meeting (a lot of synchronicities linked us and I was looking forward to seeing what was seeking to unfold) to hand out some leaflets for my forthcoming Power of Play (ing with your Problems) workshop (which, in the event - as you've probably guessed - never happened) Read More...

Day 21 – 21 day detox

March 26th, 2012 by Tonya

To your radiant health! A first cappuccino with friend Alex at Cafe Mila in Godalming - my favourite coffee house of-the-moment. And boy, didn't it taste good! What was the first thing you introduced into your diet? I'd love to know. And don't leave it too long to let me know how you got on - and about any lasting effects you got from the 21-day detox programme! And, as I mentioned just yesterday, we're doing a gentler 'weekend detox' in June - to really set you up for summer! Join us! More on that soon Read More...

Day 20 – 21 day detox

Well done, sport It's the penultimate day of the detox diet plan - and all I've really got to say is (more…)

Day 19 -21 day detox

March 24th, 2012 by Tonya

The road to heaven... ... is paved with good intentions! With three more days of the detox diet to go, today might be a good time to reflect on what the diet has done for us - and to set some intentions for positive changes we'd like to make in our lives as a result. We've gone to the trouble of disciplining our diet for, let's see Read More...

Day 18 – 21 day detox

March 23rd, 2012 by Tonya

Takin' it slow Weaning ourselves off the detox diet needs to be undertaken with as much sensitivity as we undertook the process of taking the foods out of our diets in the first place. Take it slow. Be gentle (more…)
