What matters most is that we make 'doing what we love' a priority and not something we only do if we have time. It also means to live life consciously and on purpose. If you are feeling drained, unmotivated, or stressed, it could mean that you are not doing what... Continue reading

Remember to smile today. “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” Leo Buscaglia. If you find this stone in Oswestry... Continue reading

You, yourself, as much as anybody else in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. If you have the ability to love, love yourself first.

Sometimes I sit and watch where I have left the stones and it’s amazing how many people will walk by and not notice because they are too busy with the thoughts in their heads. People who practise mindfulness are aware of each moment and to see the gifts and abundance... Continue reading

Autumn is a beautiful time of the year. It always reminds me of the cycle of life. The leaves fall and decay then spring comes offering hope and a new beginning. I painted these stones of an autumn tree in the daytime and in the nighttime, and was reminded of... Continue reading

“For the wise man looks into space and he knows there are no limited dimensions.” Lao Tzu. Don’t let the illusion of limited resources stop you pursuing your dream life. We think we don’t have the money, the knowledge, the time... Years ago my martial arts sensei would say to... Continue reading

The owl is good at what he does because he practises his craft every day. He also knows to be quiet and to watch and to listen. Catching mice at night is a skill like any other and all skills can be learned. What do you like to do? What would you like to master? Quieten the voice in your head that tells you you can’t do it and just do it. Practice self-mastery: Amateurs call this genius. Masters call it practice. Exert a strong will against your impulses and steer your future to me of your choosing. Continue reading

Surrounded by all of the big things in life, the little things around us often go unnoticed. A lot of people walked by these little characters and didn’t see them. Most people fail to see the small details, the little ways the world is shaped by almost imperceptible elements. Being present to the little things in life is a great way to live a more positive life. Focusing on what's all around you - what's happening in this moment - allows us to live our lives more fully without worrying about the future or dwelling on the past. Don't forget to look for the little things. After all, it's all of those little things that add up to the big picture of your life. Continue reading

We live in an abundant world. Just go outside and look. Look at a blade of grass. Look at the detail and colour in an autumn leaf. Remember that you are a part of nature too. Do what you love doing. Do what you were put on this earth to... Continue reading

...the doctor can’t say “Here’s your new forever home” to his patient, but he could consider that maybe the patient needs an opportunity to connect with other people and to get outdoors. Even just once a week they could benefit from some wild art therapy, or even just a walk with people they can connect with. Continue reading

Nature has never evolved something that wasn’t needed. That includes you. Everyone has a calling. Why were you born? Why do you exist? Some people have a clear sense of purpose, others stumble around trying to find it. You don’t have to hire an expensive therapist or attend fancy workshops to find out why you are here. All you have to do is step outside and listen. The natural world will tell you why it gave birth to you. Continue reading
