Live your life fully and fearlessly

A few years ago I discovered Jon Kabat-Zinn’s book – “Full Catastrophe Living” and later read Eckhart Tolle’s “A New Earth” and “The Power of Now” and I was hooked.

I was fortunate enough to attend one of Tolle’s retreats at the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and from there I embarked on a spiritual journey that has changed my life and the way I perceive the world around me.  I study Kadampa Buddhism which teaches me true wisdom and the tools to attempt to live Christ’s message.

This blog is a collection of books, articles, videos, websites and other little gems I come across, especially those  that have had a  significant impact on my life.

I am chronicling my journey HOME.

  1. I find your blog to be beautiful if I can sum it up in only a word – it is like a journey into all the different realms of humanity and bringing them together through the ties that make them similar – I think I am going to enjoy your posts. I already feel at peace and more in love with my life being here. It is restful. Thank you

  2. Dear Choc Chip Uru, we must share the love of chocolate! I appreciate your kind comments and I look forward to sharing with you through this blog. Marie xx
