7-MINUTE THERAPY for Depression: with Virginia Satir

Jul 22 2013 Published by under Change, Choice, Inspiration

7-minute-therapyTherapy… What comes to your mind when you say this word?

For me personally, it is firmly associated with the word ‘years’.

As in years of therapy!

Somehow, while our modern world has managed to get faster and faster, the duration of therapeutic interventions has managed to stretch and keeps stretching…

I don’t know about you, but it does not seem right to me!  Continue Reading »

Sauntering out of depression…

rose-photoToday is World Sauntering Day!

Saunter…

I don’t use this word at all, do you?

I prefer to use the word ‘stroll’ instead.

A good stroll for me means no hurry, peace of mind, walking meditation, total relaxation and focus on the beauty around me, while I am gently rocking my body by putting one foot in front of the other.

So simple! So easy! So connecting! So nourishing! So healing!

It is a great art to saunter.’ ~ Henry David Thoreau

Depression, autumn and letting go.

Oct 16 2012 Published by under Action, Change, Inspiration

Autumn is here. The leaves begin to change colour and fall. Nature is performing its ‘Let it go!’ dance once again!

A few more weeks and all the deciduous trees will look pretty much the same, revealing their solid and beautiful structure that we can all admire on a cold and misty day.

It’s seems like the trees need to let go of all the weight they can before the heavy snow and winds hit their magnificent crowns.

The trees have the inner wisdom of adapting themselves to a new season. They don’t resist it!

They have the immense trust to let go easily and effortlessly and just rest, rest, rest, consolidating their strength, until a new powerful transition and transformation takes place in the spring.
Why not be in alignment with Mother Nature and release some thoughts that bring you suffering and prevent you from recovery?

Take a mindful walk in nature this week. Observe the changes. Get inspired by the powerful and effortless transformations and renewals that are taking place around you.  Continue Reading »
