Emotionally Free Children by Dr Maxine Therese
“We want every child to have a free flowing life. An emotionally aware child is a free child”. Dr
To support the emotional awareness and freedom in children it is important that adults have
an understanding of their own emotional life. However, by the time most people get to adulthood --when they become parents or teachers -- they can be removed from their feeling
nature. Life's challenges often necessitate certain thought patterns, beliefs and ways of relating -- that are protective and reactive -- rather than open and flowing.

For those of you that come here often will already know, we did our first Ebb & Flow Yoga Retreat and the divine Komune Wellness Resort at Keramus Beach, Bali in June 2017.

My philosophy on eating is pretty simple. Eat wholesome food. Over the years I've tried all sorts of fads. From Vegetarian, to Paleo, and in between. I've come to believe that we've started to attach labels to the way people eat, and expectations on how people should eat. If we went back in time I think we would all find we should be more grateful for the abundance of food we have.
