Have had a luscious weekend full of things just for me so am feeling really fired up about work this week! Spent Saturday with a group of twelve other women doing yoga and specifically back bends, which are supposed to open the heart and make you more extroverted. Felt good! This is part of a British Wheel of Yoga course that I started last year and I’m really enjoying it. Every session we focus on a particular type of asana and everyone brings veggie food to share. It’s a pretty lush way to spend a Saturday. I came back with my mind completely empty after this weekend’s session which is a seriously rare occurance for me.
Yesterday the girls and I went to a Family wave to raise money for children in Haiti. I love, love, love a 5 Rhythms dance session and this was especially good. Felt so euphoric dancing around on a Sunday afternoon to great tunes with a lot of happy families. Really blissful. For the first part the girls were upstairs with their friends buying cakes and eating them whilst I shed some emotional stuff on the dancefloor downstairs but by the end they were all throwing some funky moves and it finished with this incredible angelic being singing songs accompanied by a squeezebox.
Then to round the weekend off we watched a family movie – Like Stars on Earth – a film about a boy with dyslexia, set in India. It was made by Disney (didn’t realise this when ordering – usually steer clear) so there was a certain amount of schmaltz but essentially the message that all children are capable of great things if we allow them to shine through love and respecting them was powerful and I enjoyed it.
Welcome to the new blog from the Green Parent office. Here we'll talk about what's going on in the small and quite leafy headquarters of the UK's leading green lifestyle magazine. We'll share news that interests us and talk about green issues and natural parenting. We'll share advice and information from our own experiences of living a green lifestyle. And we'll even tell you what we are reading, eating, drinking and thinking. Hope you get plenty of food for thought here.
