Bad night’s sleep?


Sleep’s an interesting one. We all feel better for a goodnight’s sleep but there are plenty of badges of honour for doing without.

What’s your Kryptonite?

What’s the one big thing that’s keeping you stuck in overwhelm at the moment? The thing that feels that if it changed everything would be so much better.

Whatever is draining you, keeping you stuck in an endless repetitive loop in your head (especially at 4 am) is your kryptonite.

Identifying your kryptonite gives you power. Noticing how it feels in your body - the held patterns of tension, the bracing tension ...

Rebel - take back control of your attention


Your attention is precious and yet you allow it to be hijacked constantly. Learning how to take back control of it takes practice. Honing your skills like a Jedi. 


So, what to do? You need the skills that come from years of mindfulness mediation - the ability to watch your thoughts and feelings without judgement, gradually loosening the mind’s ability to hijack your attention with its naggi...

Success versus health

Success versus health is a nonsense - clearly its a nonsense! It’s like climbing to the top of a mountain and realising you’d left your intestines at the bottom.


And I wonder, as we continue to damage our health by pushing on through the overwhelm and exhaustion to achieve our goals, whether its a way to justify our success.


Like driving fast, overworking is an easy habit to get into.

Mindfulness can help with your overwhelm or make it a whole lot worse.


Mindfulness is so much more than just being aware of the present moment. What if the present moment is awful?

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
