“Treating Yourself, with tips from Bali” – Newsletter Late ’17
Twice a year I send you something a little different from my blogs – a newsletter. And this one is coming to you from Bali.
It includes some great tips, thoughts and even a gift for you:
…I’m writing this newsletter to you sitting on the lovely open terrace of The Elephant café in Ubud, Bali, drinking an impossible-coloured natural Dragonfruit and Mango smoothie.
A light breeze is slightly cooling the tropic heat and humidity, and below me is Ubud’s green river gorge where rainforest trees and coconut palms grow to dizzying heights, draped and connected by a web of vines.
Today is the end of an important 10-day festival for the Balinese, called Galungan & Kuningan. The spirits of ancestors, who are said to have come down to their former homes for the 10 days, now are leaving. Dancing mythical good luck creatures called ‘Barongs’, each with a troop of kids playing traditional music, have been on the street every day to scare away bad spirits from the houses.
Everywhere this morning the Balinese are dressed in their best sarongs to visit the temples with offerings for the spirits. Yellow rice has been made and offered in gratitude for life, health, wealth received this year.
It’s a great reminder for all of us the take time to rebalance our lives, make space for what is ‘good’ for us and let go what is not helping us, and most importantly, feel gratitude for it all.
This month I’m in Bali for balance too. My last two months in the UK and Europe was very busy. So many people wanted to book in before I went away that I had a Clinic or Private Intensive on most days. It was fulfilling and exciting, but everything needs balance, which for me is some slow time here. Time for writing and the final filming for the Online course on Love that I’m creating (Find out more about this here), running a few Private Intensives in this special place, and to just enjoy some slow time out for myself.
Including – tips for enjoying slow time like the Balinese; a royal body pampering recipe; how to staying in balance as the busy holiday season approaches; and a Gift – a FREE taster of my upcoming online course on Love; plus details of an amazing Wellness Week for Burnout Recovery with a good friend of mine; and dates/places you can catch up with me over the next few months, and more…
