Depression or Emotional Immaturity

We tend to be quick to grab for the magic silver bullet, the wide range of anti- depressants, from alcohol, recreational and prescribed drugs to deal the emotional, mental pain we suffer.

Depression and Anxiety – What You Do Makes a Difference

At the turn of the 20th Century the Aristotle/ Newton/ Descarte mechanistic world view took a sword to the heart. Quantum Physics stepped onto the world stage and so began the re-awakening. Researchers are discovering what was already known by advanced civilisations from the past.

Depression and anxiety treatment is caught in this global thought side alley. Reducing a problem into smaller and smaller […]

Another Perspective on Bullying

All great spirits met violent opposition from mediocre minds 
Albert Einstein
Being bullied can lead some to suicide or other forms of self harm. Negative self image, self criticism, a not good enough belief system can all stem from being bullied.

Victims Need Bullies

There is a lot of talk about what to do about bullies. While much of it is well intentioned it may be feeding the problem and not the solution.

Being bullied has a personal aspect for me. I had a situation where I was staying which taught me some powerful lessons about giving up my victim status and disempowerment in the […]

Oxygen, pH for Health

Kissing the Black Dog – A Journey Back to Common Sense

Empowerment is the Solution to Bullying and Harassment.

When we apply the Law of Opposites to human behaviour would the situation look different, a predator needs prey, and in nature the prey needs a predator to balance the numbers.
