A small step for man, but truly a giant step for mankind.

Yes, a deeper sense of calm and balance can enter as we allow our body’s natural balance and rhythms to participate in life.

As we allow ourselves to practise Yoga and Taichi we can up the ante…

Years ago my mother had written a book of simple prayers… in these the ordinary chores of life become prayers.

When we let life in, turn our faces to the sun even the most tiresome chores become joys. Every moment becomes a prayer….
