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
Yet again I strike gold in my search for interesting women to interview. Having an affinity for spirituality, foreign cultures, travel and adventures I came across yet another incredible woman, a true academic, an explorer from ‘darkest Peru’, an adventuress and a true ‘Mummy style’ investigator. With her background in the military, academia, and Peruvian spirituality Joan Parisi Wilcox is an exciting cocktail of the intellectual, socially ground breaking and deeply mystical. She is answering my questions in another of my interviews portraying daring, adventurous and awe-inspiring women.
It was one of those days. I felt tired, overwhelmed with work, in a bit of a bad mood and really did not want to go out and socialise. I however had been invited for a chat with the London Hairdresser of The Year (2018-2019) and well, obviously could not chicken out of that! As I walked into the Windsor salon I really had no expectations. It was yet another interview and I did not know what to expect. Continue reading
As promised this is the Part TWO of the beautiful interview I had with Gurmukh. Here she gives further advice about male-female polarity and how to utilise these natural powers within our lives. Continue reading
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

Fostering is the best job I have ever done, and I feel privileged and blessed to be able to be part of these children’s lives. This job is 24/7 and 52 weeks a year – even Christmas day. The children live with us and become part of our family and I love them all. They have brought me so much joy, happiness and fulfillment, as well as challenges and sadness when they move on. No big salary or perks could ever replace the smile on a child’s face when they start to trust me and know that I won’t let them down.
