Each and every one of us is connected to that universal energy which guides us, if we are willing to be quiet and listen to it through meditation. In this fast-paced over-technicalised world meditation is my little oasis in the day where I can release any stress.

Yesterday I returned to Manchester after four days at Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire. Wilderness, for those of you who don't know, is something of...

I warmly recommend this approach for working positively with tensions at work and in life. It can really help to bring the needs of self and others into balance and create coherence between our inner beliefs and outward behaviour.

The one thing that running a business has taught me is that things are never constant. Things are never permanent. You cannot separate the highs and lows or have one without the other, so you must learn to accept the process and understand that it's part of the journey.

Recent research from the 2015 Pets at Home Pet Report revealed that rabbits are the third most popular choice of pet for British children* and owning rabbits has proven benefits for them. In the study 72% of parents agreed that owning a pet has helped with their child's anxiety. In fact, rabbit owners in particular (60%) said that their child had become more responsible and 57% of parents also said they had seen an improvement in their children's learning difficulties since getting rabbits.

One of the greatest joys of being a knitter is passing on your skills to other people, although I have to admit it took me nearly 40 years before I felt I had enough skills to teach anyone else.

The Power of Mask Making

It is a very personal journey to make your own mask and I have seen a pattern emerge over the years of observing people make their totem piece - the mask takes form and then the maker cannot help but reveal a part of themselves through the design, build and decoration.

I get called a lot of things by taxidermy enthusiasts, animal-rights activists, and the media. I'm apparently an instructor, an expert, a hipster, an animal hater, a sicko, a stuffer...but one of the most puzzling things I have been called recently is a "woman taxidermist" and I get asked the same question time and time again "Why are so many women taking up taxidermy classes?".

So, you've made it. A year of hard work and stress, with barely a break. But finally - that thing at work taken care of - a train, a flight and a cab ride later, you're on HOLIDAY! You stroll down to the beach and, sand under foot, your first sunset in god-knows-how-long.

Can You Teach Funny?

I believe that most of us have the ability to be funny. By funny I mean the ability to make other people laugh, smile or react with amusement. We are all born with it - that little bit of crazy which we have as kids but slowly leaves us as we learn the rules of life.

It's my personal view that all the while the men are busy bantering with each other at work they are missing out on some of the richest, funniest and, dare I say, filthiest observational comedy that comes naturally to women. The men don't get a look in! Humour is very definitely part of a women's method of communicating but we do it our way!
