Five small changes to reduce your daily waste

Last week Plenish kindly gave me a reusable, biodegradable bamboo coffee cup from Ecoffee to say thank you for speaking on their panel at Wholefoods about having a career (or imminent one) in nutrition. It was instant love and hot drink partnership. Now I am as guilty as the busiest […]

Letting go of ‘should’: opening to the here and now

 On Tuesday Ben and I took part in a magical cacao ceremony with Joel and Aiste from the Wild Food Cafe, supported by the beautiful music of Antarma.

42 Acres: a centre for transformation
