8 Reasons to Keep Your Coffee Addiction in Check

I am Italian and I love coffee! I love its aroma in the morning especially if it comes from a Moka, a traditional  Italian cafetière as it brings back so many sweet memories. Italians like their coffee strong, in a warm espresso cup and more than often drink it while standing. I find coffee extremely addictive so I keep it as a treat for the weekend. With an espresso in me I can go at 100 miles per hour and feel nicely wired, but when I take more or drink it daily for a few weeks I know I will have to pay for it … Continue reading

One woman’s initiative crossing bridges and helping NHS frontline

When I heard about the amazing cooperation between NHS workers and alternative healthcare providers I was intrigued. This is something I was hoping to see for decades and now it seems it was happening. Preventive medicine is at the heart of many nations medical philosophy but not so much in Britain.

I had to speak to her and find out more!

Wise Words of Gurmukh, the amazing Kundalini Yoga teacher

In December last year I was very fortunate to be taught Kundalini Yoga by Gurmukh, one of the leading Kundalini teachers in the World today. I went to her course right here in the UK, in London. Amazingly, at seventy seven she is still writing, travelling the world and teaching. She is coming back to London this Autumn and I am looking forward to sharing her words with you.

I am prone to great changes and very much used to powerful experiences but even so was still not prepared for what took place after being on the course for a mere three days. As with every true and authentic experience and with the power of continuous practice, the months that followed turbo charged me and my life beyond my wildest expectations. The intense presence of beauty, the guidance from the unseen and the sense of finding a way to myself with incredible speed was overwhelming. However, I still had questions. I felt there was so much more. I knew Gurmukh would be coming back to the UK and I asked her if she would give me an interview. When she agreed, I was not sure at first what I should ask her, I just knew I had to do it. Continue reading
