Good morning beautiful people,

I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world.

Pema Chaudron, the amazing author and Tibetan Buddhist nun says: “The ego seeks to divide and separate, spirit seeks to unify and heal.”

This is the premise behind Copl.be, a platform made to sooth, comfort and unite couples who are having difficulties. The founder, Maysa Badr created it after a painful divorce which could have gone softer had she known the alternate routes available to her. So she has gone into business to help others with what she describes as “life lessons.”

Is there always a softer route available to us in times of crisis? Can healing and unification happen for one of the two parties even if the other party is not on board?

On this note, I will invite you to take a deep breath feeling the air moving into your nostrils. When you feel ready, how about breathing out everything and anything you no longer need?

Today’s interview shows that our biggest struggles can be turned into victories, only if we are willing.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Please don’t hesitate to hit reply and let me know how you are.

With love and deep respect,

Vanessa

In meditation, we talk about stillness though; the stillness of the mind, even in a moving body and ongoing events around us.

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. This full moon week somehow felt like it held a lot of tension for many, navigating the roller coaster of our ever changing emotions, just like the weather.

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. In November 2019, I went to my twenty years high school reunion in Las Vegas, and went on to Hawaï with Carmela Fleury (my first guest on Beyond Norms) who was co-leading a 4 day retreat, with a fairy named Lee Yen Anderson.
