Good morning beautiful people,

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

Today, I will keep it short and sweet, not because I lack inspiration, but because I am a tired new mama struggling to find clarity with my words. So I will share instead the words of another, philosopher Ken Wilber.

“When it comes to spiritual teachers, there are those safe, gentle, consoling, soothing and caring; and there are the outlaws, the living terrors, the Rude Boys and Nasty Girls of God realisation, the men and women who are in your face, disturbing you terrifying you, until you radically awaken to who and what you really are.”

So as we pause and take a deep inhale, my wish for us all is that we awaken to our true nature, most likely scratching our armour along the way, especially as we let go of the old and welcome the new.

May we be healthy,
May we be happy and
May we be at peace.

Again, don’t hesitate to send me your comments, i love reading them. Daily meditation will have to wait another few days so pls email me if you would like the details.

With love and deep respect

Vanessa

On Activism and Stepping Up

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. This week went by again, faster than the speed of light, and I feel grateful for your comments regarding my first interview. It was good, but thankfully there is a lot of room for improvement. Today, I get to share my conversation with the amazing Mimi Bekhechi, Vice President of PETA ( people for the ethical treatment of animals). This is the organisation that made a lot of noise in the 90’s with top models posing naked saying “we‘d rather be naked than wear fur.”

Beyond Norms

Beyond Norms

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. Last week, I said that it doesn’t have to be perfect to get started, so I got started and my podcast, Beyond Norms, is now available on Spotify ( I am waiting for Apple to approve too). Why such a name? Because I took an anthropology class for my baccalaureate when I was sixteen years old, and realised that there were different ways to live life, that beliefs were always questionable, especially if they didn’t give us joy.
