After doing a powerful process called The Path of Love I realised I had a lot of anger from past hurt and experiences in my life. I started looking into what that effect this had on my health and came across a lot of research and evidence to suggest that repressed anger, hate and resentment is the leading root emotion causing the development of cancer.

Why Are the Media Labelling Tom Daley as Gay?

Beth Saward | Posted 03.02.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Beth Saward

Daley doesn't use any label in the video. The language he uses seems deliberately chosen to avoid any form of labelling of his sexuality. Either that or he feels that he hasn't settled on one yet. Regardless of his reasons, the media has mostly fallen over themselves to declare him a new gay icon.

Life v Lifestyle

For some people their day-to-day life will be a living embodiment of a Sunday Supplement. They'll know about inflation, drug mules, and the history of Colombia. They'll have a house in London and a house in the country and make their own jam and know where St Bart's is on a map. And they will genuinely, genuinely want to read poetry.

Eloise Hendy

Tom Daley is gay! The ridiculously tanned, ridiculously toned, young gay icon has revealed he has had a boyfriend for months. All the guys across the world who may have watched the Olympic diving less for the pike position and more for Daley's tiny speedos can rejoice, as his heterosexual teen girl fan base cry into their goggles. Except, actually, he isn't gay, or at least hasn't said as much.

Britain, You Boozing Too Much

Gina Lyons | Posted 31.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Gina Lyons

Why do we Brits love to get sloshed so much? I think it originated from "the war" (like most things) and isn't helped by the weather. But I do feel our relationship to booze needs to change. Like a fine wine, it needs to mature.

A Confusion of Men

I love the collective nouns for groups of animals: a murder of crows, a charm of goldfinches, a bloat of hippopotamuses. At a recent Men and Boys conference I invented a new one - 'a confusion of men'. Right now, most boys and men are confused about what it is to be a man. I think that is a good thing.

Why We Need to Talk About HIV

Lewis Allett | Posted 29.01.2014 | UK
Lewis Allett

Once back in England I met a great guy on a night out. On our second date he disclosed that he was HIV positive... This person educated me. I learned the science behind HIV and this knowledge freed me from the fear that I'd harboured before. More importantly for me though was the openness: when it was relevant, he shared his status, and with his consent, I did the same. What began as cathartic became educational. It was amazing how little people knew!

Medicine? Sure. Nursing? Yep. Rehab? Gotcha. But how exactly is music going to redeem this one? As a music therapist who has worked in exactly this situation for a long time, I can admit that not only have families asked me this, I've asked myself the question too.

We Should Be Giving Thanks Every Day Not Just On Thanksgiving

Ambi Sitham

In my darkest of times I found myself doing a gratitude exercise where literally as I would awake in the morning I would thank the universe, the higher powers that exist, for waking again. As I stepped out of bed I would thank god that I had the ability to walk and feel the carpet under my toes.

I'm Okay, You're Okay - But Are We Really?

Joanna Montgomery

The feeling of needing to show the world we can cope with anything is one that most of us are probably familiar with. The concept of even admitting to a struggle is something most of us actively avoid; we'd rather fight on with a forced smile fixed upon our faces.
