Living tantra, living love – Inspiration Shot September 2019


Let me tell you a 'secret'... I went on a tantra retreat ... Whilst Tantra is often associated with sex, this was more of a 'tantra for life' retreat. The tantric philosophy of balance, openness and connection that is often applied to sexuality is actually intended as a philosophy of life.

Get out of your monkey mind – Inspiration Shot August 2019


Do you recognize this feeling of being unsettled, restless, or confused? This voice in your head that won’t quit? Some suggest that the monkey mind is the inner critic.

Look at the world through somebody else’s filter – Inspiration Shot March 2019


If you and I walk down the same street, we will see different things. There are lots of details and we make different analyses and come to our own conclusions. That’s why I like social media so much: when someone posts authentic things, those posts reflect how that person sees the world.

Financial freedom – Inspiration Shot February 2019


Do you need to make money before you can be free and follow your passion? Or is it better to actually turn what you are passionate about into something profitable to achieve that freedom?

But to be honest, I notice that many people experience financial worries that may take away some of the pleasure.
