Feeling immense gratitude for the past three days I spent at Pa Pae Meditation Retreat in the Northern Thailand forest, nurturing my meditation practice and learning about The Middle Way. I am deeply touched by the generosity and loving kindness of our hosts Mali and Teaching Monk Pura Pawithai Vajiravijjo. I am excited to bring home what I've learnt and to share techniques with family and friends on how to cultivate inner peace. papaemeditationretreat themiddleway innerpeace peace meditation meditationpractice crystalball buddha lovingkindness

I went to to coolest thing last night with my lovely friend Av: kundi club - a kundalini dance club with incredible meditation and dancing and the best beats. Both of us were terrified to go, and it was so nerve wracking to begin with but electrofying and heart opening and releasing and eye opening but safe and FUN and we danced wildly for 3 hours with not a drop of alcohol, which is a first. And everyone in that room, being wholly, unapologetically themselves was so beautiful and something I've never witnessed in so many people at once. It can be so scary letting go of what other people think of you, but shit! It is AMAZING!

Ahh, to be a "rational" reductionist! Perpetually trapped in the self-justifications of the prison of the Left brain. Unaware that the most true, and objective reality in this world is composed of essences, which serve as the primary animating principles to all forms of individual and social organisms. What we hate in "the other" is merely a reflection of the ugliness, and barrenness of mind in our own zeal. • zealots hermeticism esoterica themiddleway gnothiseauton whatisbornbyfirecanonlyconsume

This made me shiver. You'll have more chance of gaining weight than you do of losing weight when you do diet. That is nuts! Yet there are more meal plans, bikini body guides, clean eating guides, macro "coaches", calorie counting apps and calorie controlled meal delivery services than ever. These are all diets. As a PT i am often told clients want to lose weight, and when I ask why it's because people want to feel more confident. But diets erode confidence by their very nature, we're destined to fail but it's not our fault; and then we look at the fitness model selling the plan, or someone who counts macros who's lean and we think "why can she do it?". See, genetics plays a big part (although everyone claims it doesn't, as though genes don't exist and haven't determined every other aspect of our appearance) and no one advertises the weight gain after the loss; there are no "before and 5 years later progress pics", and the health and wellness industry is still a multi-billion dollar industry, because none of the diets or plans work and people just keep weight cycling. I could go on for hours, so I wrote a blog on it "why you should never ever ever diet again & what you should do instead" link in my bio or click the "blog" tab when you head to www.perfectlyyouwellness.com 💜

There are many attributes to helping others. Mercy, gentleness, love, humility,effort...etc. Self sacrifice is not. There is no need to destroy yourself in order to help another. If the other cannot help them self. Then no one can.

When something isn't easy, when there are a lot of things that could go wrong, perhaps you'll gain weight, you may never get to your goal weight etc, you have to look those fears in the eye and decide you're bigger than them, that the potential reward (which is food freedom and life enjoyment and freedom from diet culture entrapment) is bigger than the fear. (If you don't know who @malalafund Malala Yousofzai is, google her and read her book. To put this quote into perspective, she was talking about the Taliban, who shot her in the face on the school bus for publicly standing up for a girl's right to education despite repeated threats from the Taliban that they would kill her. She was 15!!! She knew the risks and she took them and she got shot, and she survived and she KEPT standing up for girls' right to education even though the f*^king TALIBAN shot her in the FACE! I mean, can you even imagine?) what saddens me is that for so many girls around the world, their biggest worry is that they won't have an education, they won't get to go to school or have a job or learn to read. In the Western world, our biggest concern may be whether we fit into small enough shorts or whether our cellulite is too prominent for a bikini. Where are we going wrong?

People are like dirt or soil. Some dirt is hard. Some dirt is dry. Some dirt is fertile. Like people, dirt comes in different colors. Seeds on hard soil just lay on the top. When seeds get through and into the soil, they can grow. But seeds also need water and sunlight to grow. Compassion is like water. Wisdom is like sunlight. With the right amount of water and sunlight, the seeds will grow. Leaves will sprout and flowers will bloom. The flowers are truehappiness Growth comes with experience and comes with patience. Set your goals in life and strive progressively. Slowly but surely your time to bloom and shine will come. themiddleway wisdomcomesfromnature livity

Remember this next time you are feeling less..less deserving, less important, less valuable: You do not have to be perfect to feel worthy and deserving. Our universe is vast enough to hold everyone's greatness. You do not have to lose weight, become smaller, diet, look prettier, have longer hair, longer nails, longer eye lashes, different skin, a rounder bum, a better job, a nicer car, a bigger house or ANYTHING else to be an incredible, amazing, sparkly star.. because that is already inside of you you just have to let it shine 💫

I saw this picture of @glitterandlazers and was overwhelmed and in awe. We don't see fat people celebrating their bodies. We are taught that fat is the worst thing you can be, we should fear it and avoid it at all costs. We're taught that fat is shameful, embarrassing, an indicator of laziness and greed. We're taught it will lead to early death and ostracism. These are all messages we get from a very out of whack dIet culture spear headed by an industry designed to take your money. The thing is, there are a lot worse things than being fat...Like being an ass hole!! It's like you can get away with being a dick if you're good looking, and pursuing thinness often turns us into really mean people (it did for me, such negative mood from caloric restriction and low energy). We teach our young girls to be beautiful, rather than smart, strong, courageous, fun, silly, THEM SELVES. There is a message out there than thin or lean is the most important thing; I know this because otherwise we would not spend more time on the pursuit of a perfect body than on anything else. Even our obsession with "health" is just a disguise for fear of fatness, the medical literature is no longer even certain that excess weight leads to particular health issues, once you account for behaviour. So is fat the worst thing a human can be? Absolutely not! Celebrate YOU no matter what your size. Be courageous and smart and funny and quirky and whatever else you are and no matter what, don't let the pursuit of thinness steal your sparkle; the world would be a very dull place 💫🌟

Some days find us inside, recovering from wild forays in the mountains or from a hectic day of life duties. In those times, a soft approach is often best. Instead of maximum effort, it's a more quiet, middle-of-the-road approach, one that includes the art of listening to the wisdom of the body. . . . . . . . paschimottanasan listentoyourbody bodywisdom forwardfold stressrelief activerecovery themiddleway yogadaily yogaforstressrelief

I'd even say it's the most potent political sedative in history full stop, which s a pretty big claim. Our world is in a funny place- so many millions living without food, running water, shelter or safety and then those of us who can do something about it are too worried about the reflection in the mirror to have the space to care about bigger things. When I Quit Dieting I got really mad about this, about how the media and our culture portrays this obsession with weight AND health as the most important thing, when there is so much more worthwhile to care about. As women it frustrates me that our focus is so heavily on our appearance, but don't get me wrong I work in a gym and I can see the pressure is also on men. The problem is that we're so focused on dieting and image that we're not thinking about the things that really matter. Not only does the constant focus on what you look like drain you, but eating below your required levels of calories and carbs leaves you wth no brain power or energy to do things that matter! You have no time or space to make changes that make a difference. When you look at the bigger picture, does the shape of your legs or the size of your stomach really matter?

It's so easy to forget this - to get caught up in social media and see how "happy" lean people look. Sure, they may be happy, but it's not because they're lean. They may also not be happy, they may be anxious and trapped and portraying the happy image because that's what gets likes. I used to do it too. It's easy to forget that the things that make you happy are the things that give your life meaning: social connection, community contribution, doing stuff that counts. Looking a particular way is not meaningful, and as you jump down that rabbit hole true meaning only gets more elusive. On Saturday I put on a pair of jeans and they were too small. So I put on another.. and they were too. I sat down and thought about what I'd do.. and figured it was time I bought new jeans. I'm not going to sacrifice my happiness to fit into some pants. My happiness does not depend on my size; the number on the label of my jeans will not define me. Don't shrink your self, for the sake of being small ✌🏼

I remember I was always searching for the perfect diet, the one diet that would finally set me free. I thought about food constantly, if I wasn't restricting I was bingeing and I hated my body. I thought I must be addicted to food. In fact, I was addicted to dieting. Even now thoughts of dieting pop in to my head occasionally, and the idea of eating food I used to when dieting, like Quest bars or protein shakes, makes me think it would make me feel good, virtuous and clean. What absolute fucking bullshit. Quest bars taste like sugarey dough and make me look 9 months pregnant. Protein shakes are watery, slimy and weird. Dieting made me feel restricted and pathetic, controlled and out of control. DIETS ARE THE PROBLEM; NOT FOOD!! The solution will not be found when you find the perfect diet, it will be found when you stop dieting for good. Just remember that 🍒
