Are you really in control of your life or are you giving your power away?

The recent hype over the last couple of months regarding the Corona Virus has caused, amongst other things, a lot of panic around the world and led to a drastic measures in some countries – from travel bans, quarantining and quite recently, in Japan’s case, ending the school term early by a month. Not only this, in Australia, we have been inundated with a lot of natural “disasters”… from drought, bush fires and floods. This no doubt adds to the anxiety and tension in the air!

When the macrocosm meets the microcosm – my thoughts on Uluru

Many of you will know of the quote “your thoughts create your reality“, and so the way that you perceive your environment and world is directly shaped by your own thought patterns and beliefs. For example, you know when you’re walking down the street or you’re in your office, and as you are walking of sitting there, you notice someone looking directly at you.

The story of the jaw, the face and trauma

A few months ago I wrote an article about why issues with the sphenobasalar junction (SBJ for short) can affect us in a variety of ways. From my recent studies on biodynamic craniosacral therapy, I now have a more complete picture of how this can happen – and it’s all based around the dynamic of the SBJ and the face! In biodynamic craniosacral therapy, many people seem to think that all we work with is the cranium (i.e. the skull) and the sacrum. But it’s important to actually have a wider view at the human body, to understand that even the cranium connects to various other structures (like the facial bones and muscles) and that in term has a cascading effect down the rest of the body.
