Freedom, the rights of children, democracy

Kathy Krugerharmony, peace15 Comments

When I was in Year 6 (it could have been Year 5 or 7) I wrote a poem that was published in the Australian Girl Guides magazine. It was my very first published piece. Woo Hoo! It was called FREEDOM and it was full of idealism for a better world that only 11 year-old-girls, flush with naïve enthusiasm and the … Read More

Just breathe

Kathy Krugerhappiness, meditation, peace, yoga32 Comments

Breathe. In. And out. In. And out. So everybody is still alive after the holidays – that’s great. Last Friday I published the lazy guide to being enough in 2015 – most of you were too lazy to bother reading – perfectly understandable really as I haven’t torn myself too far away from the pool or the yoga mat over … Read More

Bringing it all back to balance

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony, peace14 Comments

There are some things I know for sure about balance. It isn’t easy, and yet it is our natural state. It doesn’t have to be equal, and yet it is about finding equilibrium. It isn’t black and white – it’s only in the richness of colour and contrast that we can perceive a beautiful pattern of balance. We can get … Read More

Here’s cheers

It’s Halloween and I’m not scared. I’m not secretly scared that I’m slipping under the seductive spell of alcohol. I was a bit frightened, prior to #ocsober, but I’ve faced that demon down. Said BOO! to a bad habit, because that’s what it was. I read this post (full of some really interesting research) this week about addiction being overcome … Read More

Just a minute. You only need a moment. Oh God what you wouldn’t give for just one moment of peace right now! Whether it’s 60seconds to catch your breath, close your eyes and calm down or a quick pick-me-up activity, snatching time, pushing pause, can work wonders. Freeze frame the whirl around you and feel the difference. Here’s how. Apply … Read More

Namaste, Aloha, Shalom, Salaam

Kathy Krugerlove, peace, yoga7 Comments

This post is by way of saying ‘hello’ for a Friday (or whatever day you are reading this), but something more as well. It’s an offering of peace, an acknowledgement that we are all the same, that we are all one. Namaste. Our everyday hello’s and hi’s are often polite, passing greetings, flippant even, uttered with ‘how are you?’ questions, … Read More

Meditation in action

When I was a kid my parents made me hose the lawn for half an hour a day.  This was when using sprinklers was banned (or at least restricted) and having a lush lawn was a sign of suburban success, or at least of keeping up with the Joneses in some small (and extremely cheap) way. And there’s nothing like … Read More

Ten tips for taking a shower

Kathy Krugergo with the flow, gratitude, mummytime, peace, yinyang20 Comments

Do you ever (or always) stand in the shower and think less than flattering thoughts about your naked body? (well of course you do!) Do you let negative thoughts (about anything and bloody everything) wash over you with the steady stream from the shower rose? Is taking a shower a time for clarity or confusion? Are you in and out … Read More

Feeling all zen

Kathy Krugerbalance, harmony, meditation, peace, yoga9 Comments

My yoga retreat is over and I’m all zenned or zenned out, or something like that. This should be my 100th post, but I’m saving it for something special, so I thought I’d just wish you Namaste and simply show you what zen looks, feels, tastes and sounds like. Oh and it smells like woodfire smoke on a cold mountain night. … Read More

The time of my life

Kathy Krugerbalance, motherhood, mummytime, peace14 Comments

With mother’s day approaching I’m contemplating a whole weekend with the kids, all to myself. Yeh! squeaks my inner voice. My outer voice will be more likely to yell in frustration at the kids and curse hubby who could have timed his work shifts better and given me the ‘day off’ or at least some quality family time.

Meditation March (into Awesome April)

Kathy Krugermeditation8 Comments

Update – check out my kids meditation collection of videos. Well Meditation March is over and I’ve come to the conclusion that if meditation is great for a month, then it’s wonderful every single day of our lives. I’ve road-tested all kinds of meditation and have also concluded it’s worth it – even when you only have a minute (you … Read More

Friday find your flow – just use your senses

Kathy Krugergo with the flow, peace, perspective4 Comments

OK – so this post is a little deep. When was the last time you got up at dawn and listened to the world waking up? The last time you heard the birds greet the morning and each other, oblivious to your eavesdropping? When did you last stop to really listen, watch and feel everything around you? When did you … Read More
