    Eating

    I’m laying here beached on the couch, looking as much like a whale as any human is ever going to, bathed in self-loathing and pity. I’ve done it again. I’ve eaten so ridiculously much that I’m flat on my back in severe pain. The familiar, but still slightly worrying, stabbing ...

    The Australian-born nun, Ven. Robina Courtin is still subject, reluctantly, to international fame since the release in 2000 of the documentary movie about her life, Chasing Buddha.

    Ritual and ceremony in modern life

    Ritual and ceremony add to the richness of life, and help us to celebrate important cultural and personal milestones. The ‘pomp and ceremony’ give colour, style and flavour to the rite being celebrated, such as Anzac Day, a birthday or Christmas. The essence (ritual) of New Year’s eve celebrations is ...

    EM fields, auras and insanity

    When I began to awaken to the metaphysical side of life I wondered if I was going insane. This tends to happen when you are a veterinarian, and the daughter of a mathematician, trained in science as the only means to discover truth. Especially when you believe auras are not ...

    Notes from my 1998 meeting with Pope John Paul II

    The invitation for a personal meeting with His Holiness Pope John Paul II scrolled off our fax machine, complete with instructions for protocol for meeting the Pontiff, and we at first thought it was a prank. But it was real: a close friend of the Pope had read my book ...

    Living in the heart of infinite love

    Heart beating strongly, full of spirit, I reach to you beyond words and printed page. My soul crumbles time and space to be with you, to join hearts, to share love of many faces. Inspired by you, I open my heart. In the awe and endless wonder of your essence, ...

    It’s cold in Benares

    I think we all know intuitively that our real home is the sacred hub of our own heart and that our real identity is that Self which is identical to the supreme consciousness that pervades the entire universe. I sincerely hope we will all try to experience the truth of ...

    We are the laboratory rats!

    We are the laboratory rats! – a special report on aspartame, Additive 951.   There is a huge amount of evidence on how a popular artificial sweetener in all diet drinks, ‘sugarless’ gum and ice-cream, and a host of ‘sugar-free’ diet, fitness and drug products, is probably creating health problems ...

    Poetry in the boardroom – Rethinking corporate life in the Emerald Isle

    The small Irish cottage was buzzing, as all things Irish seem to be these days. A room full of academics, management consultants and corporate executives, used to the ever-present whiteboard, overhead projector and flow chart, were looking at nothing more than a raging peat fire.
