2018: Reflected


2018 has been and gone(!) On a global scale, so much transformation was packed into a mere 12 months. We Humans seem to be on the brink of either a major awakening, or perhaps, annihilation... Global warming, the threat of nuclear war, the extinction of privacy. On one side of the globe we attempt to inflate a dysfunctional patriarchy to bursting point. Closer to home, we embrace the potential of a matriarch to restore balance.

And while all this goes on, we must somehow navigate our individual journeys within the confines of present life circumstance.

For me personally, 2018 was a very full year (hence the internet silence over the past 6 months or so). Raising my two young boys took precedence. But while I kept focus on the near-field, I also aimed to align with the wide-angle view by continuing my personal journey of awakening. Some of the highlights below.

After a great deal of reflection, I made a decision at the beginning of 2018 to stop 'flying the flag' for Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Initially this was because my personal practice had evolved away from this traditional form, so I no longer felt I could be an authentic flag-bearer.
