George Bernard Shaw once said that our “… worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them.” Most of us don’t walk around harbouring strong negative emotions such as loathing or rage. Yet the challenge for many is to overcome the apathy and indifference we have toward one another; to be available and attentive to those we pass in the aisle while out shopping at the supermarket, the co-workers we see daily in the hallways of our offices, the fellow travellers on the bus or train on our daily commutes and those acquaintances we regularly notice in our social and/or spiritual circles.
Our sense of community is fostered readily in the aftermath of any tragedy. Yet a sense of belonging must be cultivated and valued in and of itself for us to feel truly fulfilled in our lives. Einstein...Read More

Pennie ask me to write a blog about my experiences with Breath4LifeTM Breath Work because I had asked what I could do to help with Pennie’s vision of getting Breath4LifeTM Breath Work out to people who really need to know that there is a therapy that really works. My name is Tina and I’m 26yrs old and have been struggling with depression, anxiety and problems with eating since I was 13 years. A friend of the family told me a little bit about her experience of Breath4LifeTM Breath Work – so I thought I’d give it a try- I felt it was my last hope really – I’ve been through counselling and the CBT route, which I felt was like trying to stick a plaster over a gaping wound – not much good in my opinion. Psychotherapy also didn’t do it for me and my psychiatrist a waste of space quite frankly all he wanted to do was get my diagnosis...Read More
