They call it the breath of life. I prefer to think of it as a clock. Your body is a fully integrated system. Every process works in unison with all others, so that when one cog in the machine is out of balance, it grinds against another until it breaks. 

The same is true for positive situations. When you breathe, you are supplying a particular volume of gases to the brain. It is such an important organ that it uses up to 20% of the t...

I’m told that practicing meditative techniques is the equivalent of a physical workout for the brain. The idea is appealing and yet it’s so hard to make it stick as a habit. I know the science behind the practice and I’ve studied countless research papers on the benefits to health and wellbeing and yet most guided meditations fail to hit their mark.

These respected scientis...

Okay, I admit it, I’m a recent convert to ‘grounding’ technology, not because my dear old hippy dad convinced me, but because it genuinely works.

What is Earthing or Grounding?

It’s simple really. In our quest to sterilise everything in our immediate vicinity, to take every precaution against dirty nature, we have cut ourselves off from a rich source of helpful ions.

We are naturally conductive creatures, hence the need to protect ours...

I wasted an entire working day, watching YouTube videos and reading articles in preparation for writing another post on consciousness. What did I learn? Every neuroscientist, psychologist, yogi and quantum physicist out there in video land, has no more idea about our mind that the original ancient Greek philosophers.

Virtually every twenty-minute lecture, Tedx or otherwise, began with a series of quotes from long dead scientists and...
