• Is the monkey on your back yours?

    I was at a Constellation workshop last year and heard an amazing fact. Scientists have done research on mice. The first generation tested had rosewater sprayed in the air and then they were electronically shocked.  The connection was made so strongly, that by three generations later, the researchers just had…

  • Who Do You Trust?

    Following up to my post about Trust I came across some interesting reading in Brene Brown’s book Daring Greatly that I thought I would share. Learning how to trust is a loaded subject in general. If trust has been broken and in most cases not modelled, how do you know…

  • Trust

    According to Miriam Webster, trust is: “a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or something.” What we know for sure is that living a life without trust, means living a life without feeling safety in self and others. There is no such thing as safety…
