To enter, comment on this post with your favourite insight from the interview above. Deadline: Midnight GMT 31st December 2016. 

Daily Tending is the process of tuning into your inner wisdom each day. It is about carving out space for your needs by urging them forward to be witnessed and lovingly attended to. It is the practice of cultivating self-trust by creating a habit out of listening to and trusting your inner dialogue.

It is not a magic pill or a plan to revolutionize your entire life in 30 days.

It is the slow, delicious process of tuning in and experimenting with welcoming more of yourself into your own life.

The Daily Tending divination deck connects you with your inner wisdom in a tangible, daily practice that is easy to use and impossible to mess up. It provides you with a place to begin when you are unsure of how to foster deeper levels of communion with yourself.

THE CONCEPT IS SIMPLE: PULL A CARD.

Pull a card in the morning, before you head into the busyness of your day.

Pull a card in a moment of overwhelm or doubt, when you are unsure of what to do next.

Pull a card and listen to yourself respond.

Pull a card and notice the ten-second shift towards tender sustainability.

 

It provides a practice for you to count on as the one small thing that you can return to when you lose your way.

With gentle exploration and kind words, the Daily Tending divination deck gives you the language for the questions that you haven’t been able to ask aloud before.

This deck is your road map to devotion, ease, and everyday indulgence.

This deck was created to facilitate your daily conversations with your highest self.

Deck Details

Your deck includes 40 hexagon cards.

10 prompts | 10 intentions | 10 questions | 10 gentle invitations

40 opportunities to connect with yourself more deeply.

Your deck will arrive in a beautiful muslin pouch with a love note from Mara and a set of sacred instructions for use.

Post U.S Election – so much has changed and is still changing. So many people I care deeply about are feeling scared, threatened, divided and alone. 

Dear one, wherever you are today, I witness and hear you. I know many people are feeling betrayed, terrified and scared for the future, especially people of colour, women, people with disabilities, people of other-than-christian faiths, people of all sexualities and all spaces on the gender spectrums and many others who may be feeling especially ‘other’ and unsafe right now.

I have read that some people are feeling heard and vindicated.
Others may be feeling a mix of so many things.

I have lived through Brexit, (and continue to live with the unfolding ramifications) but I cannot pretend to know how you feel.

My Daily Practice: Yoga

my daily practice: yoga a guest post kayla kuin gracequantock.com

Daily Practice series – demystifying daily practice with experts sharing their real-life experience in wellness and self-care modalities.

10 years ago I never though I’d be where I am today.

I was tired ALL THE TIME. Despite the fatigue, I couldn’t sleep through the night. During the day, my brain felt like mush.

I was in University, studying two subjects that I LOVE (classics and psychology), but I couldn’t pay attention in class. In fact, I could barely make the 5 minute walk from my flat to the classroom. I hit a low when the potent sleeping pills I was taking stopped working. Like the other drugs before them, I had grown immune. My one lifeline was gone and I was lost.

Business can be beautiful, but sometimes it’s felt like I had 2 options: to be ‘successful’ or to practice self-care.

It felt like it wasn’t an option to do both.

Like the company that wanted to take my work all the way (across 5 continents) but only if I disregarded my health and wellness for their schedule. I said ‘no thank you’. Because if I’m not happy, if I’m not congruent and if I’m not me, then it’s not really a success, is it?

This can happen on a large scale – the boss that says you’ll get the promotion if you ‘put in the hours’ or on a smaller scale, where you push through the project to reach the deadline, to be done, to rest but collapse on the other side. And each time it happens, each collapse over the finish line is eating away a little more and a little more still at the very ability to do such work, or get dressed, or live your life.
