Approaching the end of the year I find this a great time to reflect on the year that has just been and begin planning and setting new intentions for the upcoming year. This is not about setting new years resolutions that you forget about in a couple of weeks and never achieve. I share with you the process I use, some of the questions I reflect upon and how this year I have chosen a mantra or motto to anchor to. This is about how you can be, do and have more in 2019.

In this week's episode I sit down with my mum, Carolyn Hart, and discuss my adoption, and the impact on a child separated from their biological mother at birth. My mum talks from both a personal and professional point of view as a child and adolescent Psychotherapist. She describes parenting from her perspective as both an adoptive, and a biological mother. We discuss the different aspects of ourselves, the roles we play, masks we wear and the inner wounded child in all of us.

Are we all addicts? Today I explore the Buddhist concept of the hungry ghost. Living in our shadow side, the hungry ghost is a reflection of a part of us that is seeking wholeness. I discuss the hungry ghost energy, looking at addiction as a spiritual quest, my own addictive behaviour cycle and how I broke the pattern.

This is a fantastic introduction into Holotropic breathwork from certified facilitator and Director of Grof Transpersonal training, Holly Harman. We discuss the healing power of the breath in drawing material from the subconscious and giving it full expression of emotion within a safe space. We cover the 4 stages of birth and the perinatal archetypes that can be expressed in a holotropic setting. We also talk about the relationship between our own birth process experience and patterns that have shown up throughout our life.
