2018 Your Year

Happy Holidays!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  Cherish the time with loved ones, make the most of some time away from the regular routine and take a look back at the year that was 2017.  Did you set yourself some goals for 2017 and did you achieve them? Do you feel happy and healthy? Are you feeling fulfilled and energized?

As you look forward to the New Year, think about what you would like to achieve for 2018 – when you raise your glass on December 31st 2018 what do you want to have accomplished? In all areas of life – health, relationships, career.  If you would like some help figuring out how to do that and how to keep on track as the year goes by, then you might be interested in my 2018 Focus on You series.

I’m offering a 6 week series that will help you define your health and wellness goals for 2018.  We will begin by looking at all the key areas of your life and see where you want to focus your energies.  Then, using your key character strengths you will set yourself some timely, achievable goals to work on in the areas that you have chosen. With me alongside helping you to keep focused, and encouraging you to use your own strengths and wisdom to get you there, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve!

Cost is $400 for the 6 weeks series and begins in January 2018.

Please email me for more details and to sign up for your first session.

Melody Beattie provides a daily paragraph or two to provide food for thought and contemplation.

It surprised me how often the daily meditations seemed particularly appropriate!






Restorative Coconut Broth

2 15oz cans coconut milk

1 vegan stock cube

4 stalks lemongrass

1 shallot peeled and finely sliced

2 cloves garlic peeled and halved

1 red chile roughly chopped

2 tablespoons coconut sugar

a bunch fresh cilantro

4 generous handfuls of green leaves shredded eg kale or bok choi

2 handfuls sliced mushrooms

2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari

Juice of 2 limes

Pour the coconut milk into a large pan and add a canful of water and the stock cube.  Smash the lemongrass with a rolling pin to help release the flavors more quickly.  Add to the pan with the shallot, garlic, chile and sugar.  Cut the roots off the cilantro and add these too.

Push all the aromatics into the liquid so they are covered and turn the heat on under the pan.  Bring to a gentle simmer, then allow to bubble for 15 minutes until you have an intensely flavored coconut broth.

Take the pan off the heat and strain the broth through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, discarding all the aromatics (they have done their work now).  Then pour the broth back into the pan.  Add the shredded greens and mushrooms and warm through for 2 to 3 minutes.  Then take off the heat and add the soy sauce and lime juice.

Ladle the soup into bowls and top with the roughly chopped cilantro leaves.

You could always add some cooked soba noodles to this broth if you want something a little heartier.
