For thousands of years our ancestors would tell stories about the Great Mystery. On every continent, and in every climate where humans had learned to survive, the stories they told addressed the question “how did we get here?” That’s such a big question that other questions easily tumble into the space it creates, such as “what’s the point of us be…
 
If everyone on the planet were happy and content, it would not be about food. Having enough food would cure hunger, but it would not create happiness and contentment. If all humans could be free of war and other scourges, it would be a wonderful thing, but it wouldn’t necessarily bring happiness and contentment. There’s only one thing that can do t…
 
Here is a story that rocked me to the core. Some of its images have stayed with me ever since I first received it last summer. It addresses shame, which in my experience one of the hardest emotions to identify and stay present to. The story gives a vivid description of the shame that we can experience when we forget our divine nature. We all know, …
 
Before the modern age, a person’s course in life was defined by what their parents had done. All of that’s changed now, of course: a very familiar trope in Hollywood movies involves the protagonist saying “No, Dad! I don’t want to follow in your footsteps! I have to follow my own path!” That’s a heroic choice, and usually the character has a clear …
 
When the lockdown started, the words I often heard people using were “scary” and “frightening”. A few weeks later the word pinging around in my inbox was “bizarre”. Currently it looks like “the new normal” might be the phrase. I’m having a good lockdown. My current lifestyle isn’t that different from usual, as I already work from home. In some ways…
 
The current crisis asks me to live as if what is mine today might be gone tomorrow. It invites me to find my peace with uncertainty by raising my inner game. Two essential questions get stirred up by all this: “What really matters?” and “To what am I most deeply committed?” Both return me to a vivid dream I had many years ago… I had found myself wa…
 
Here’s a story for children all about that within us which cannot be destroyed. It tells of a girl whose hair cannot be cut. Although creating havoc in her family and early relationships, this strangely resilient (and eventually very long!) hair proves to be her blessing. It shows her how to live purposefully, and at the end of her life is her comf…
 
When I was a child my mother would buy a big Christmas tree every December and we’d all decorate it with baubles, tinsel and fairy lights. One Christmas eve, aged fourteen years old, I took a walk outside in the misty London streets. It was so late that there was almost no traffic. On the night before Christmas, the city seemed finally to be restin…
 
What is the essence of healing? Where does responsibility for our healing journey lie? These are big questions, and I took a deep dive into them with Dr Cathy Holway recently. I don’t know anyone I’d rather explore this territory with. Cathy is without doubt the most skillful healer I’ve ever met, and working with her many years ago was pivotal for…
 
I saw the film “Wonder” recently. It’s a sweet movie, telling the story of a boy who is born deformed and spends much of his childhood not wanting to be seen. It showed how shame can get a hold of a person and cause them to retreat from the world. At one point during the movie it hit me how familiar this felt. At many times in my life, shame has pu…
