Dakinis! 
So - over on my Facebook page I've been posting pictures of fierce naked ladies that I've been drawing AKA Dakinis! Thus far I've completed three Dakini pieces and I've got many ideas for several more. “But what?” you may be asking, “is a Dakini? And why are drawing them?” ...

How letting go of 'should' can really, really reduce how much we feel a sense of struggle in life. Seriously! 
‘Shoulding’ ourselves is a sure way to not get very far. So what happens when we stop ‘shoulding’ ourselves and start looking at ‘could’ or ‘might’? www.vast-skythinking.com

Letting go is a powerfully transformative practice. What if we let go of our expectations? 
When we let go of holding onto expectations we put on ourselves and others, we are cultivating flexibility. Imagine if we weren’t limited by unreasonable or impossible to attain expectations of others, of society and of ourselves.

Practice makes perfect! Or at least practice makes more flexible, open and happy. 
Everything is Workable - a series of podcasts and blog posts that examine how every experience, every situation, every moment is an opportunity to work with our mind....

Brilliantly written. I so appreciate the final paragraph. #FirstWorld naivete means we so often forget that there are people experiencing a hell of a lot more suffering than we do in countries like the UK.

No one is just one way. Increase your flexibility by examining what it means to be human and to accept others for their human-ness.

My newest podcast episode! It's possible to forgive without ever receiving an apology. 
Forgiveness is an incredibly valuable tool - but one that’s often misunderstood. Kaitlyn examines what it means to genuinely forgive someone and how forgiveness is something we do for ourselves as much as for someone else. www.vast-skythinking.com

There isn't just one way to practice, nor is there an ultimate practice. Use it all.

The noble practice of 'only one person gets to have an ego'
What happens when we don’t go to war with other people? What does it mean to let go of needing to be ‘right’ so we can see the bigger picture? Kaitlyn talks about a practice she uses to communicate effectively in times of conflict.

Pictures! Couldn't caption them though and too jet lagged to figure out how. :P

Short of it is: Amazing. Beautiful. Astounding. Wonderful. Delightful.

I re-visit the topic of my first podcast and expel some of the myths and misconceptions around meditation and the resulting mindfulness. 
Kaitlyn revisits the subject of her first podcast and goes a little deeper into meditation by tackling the misconceptions and misunderstandings of mindfulness in the media. www.vast-skythinking.com

Addressing the sticky issue of arguing about a word and missing the entire point of the movement.

Gosh - this got a lot of well-written and well-thought out comments. Only one that totally missed the point and went on a tangent rant of indigence.

One of the greatest museums I've ever been to. Incredibly well laid out, wonderful exhibitions of art and a fantastic narrative of the history of mental health from diagnosis to treatment to recovery. Very diverse and captivating. Well worth a visit.

I was able to book onto a course very last minute. They were extremely accommodating and the course itself was exactly what I needed. I found Alex to be a fun instructor and he was even able to provide person specific support to those of us in attendance. I would certainly use Highlander again for future training.
