Digital Digestion

Most of us have probably heard of the phrase “digital detox”: a dedicated time out from the computerised technology that defines our modern age. This can be anything from a holiday with no internet access, to a silent retreat such as a Vipassana meditation centre, or some may even go so far as to leave … Continue reading Digital Digestion

Yoga Online – The limits to the benefits

I’ve written much about this astrological energy and although, I don’t normally use the “names” given to the moons, in this case it felt natural to use that as the focus for exploring the potential of this energy.
