May I re-mind you: your potential is completely negotiable

"Who am I to call myself an artist / a writer / a yoga instructor / a personal trainer / or anything for that matter? Who am I to own my intelligence. To be fierce. And bold. And brilliant AF!?" This chronic questioning, this sense of inadequacy of somehow falling short is common ground on which we all meet. I hear it in clients, I hear it at sister circle, I hear it in my own head.  It’s part of the human condition and why wouldn’t it be. We are a conglomerations of contradictions - [...]

The Secret Stories Our Bodies Tell: Rewriting The Psychosomatic Script

Your body is miraculous, mysterious, intelligent beyond your wildest dreams. It pulses with molten wisdom and stories as old as stars. It was present for every experience of your life and embodies emotional imprints of these events. Answers to lifelong questions are steeped in cells, tucked in the folds of tissue and buried in bone marrow. ‘There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.’ Nietzsche You just have to ask the right questions, lean in and listen. YOUR BIOGRAPHY BECOMES YOUR BIOLOGY  The body, like everything else in life, is [...]

Transcendental Training Template: Workout Enhancement

Ever experienced fitness fatigue? Your usual exercise of choice has lost its pizzazz (or never had any in the first place). You’re feeling flat, physically bleh (bloated, puffy, weak) and you're tired of trainers banging on about reps, intervals, calories and measurements? Ahuh, I can practically feel you nodding through the screen. The secret to turning a fitness fling into a forever-love is this. Replace "routine" with "self renewing rituals". What’s the difference between a routine and a ritual? As Gretchen Rubin says: “A 'routine' is a string of habits, and a 'ritual' is [...]

Sonic Goodness: Chakra Balancing Sound Meditation

"Music that melts the separate parts of your body together." Anais Nin Back in my festival fiend days (a past life ago now) you'd find me two-steppin' round the dance-floor boom boxes. I got off on feeling the kick-drum in my chest, my whole body amped and electric with sympathetic vibration - fuzzy frissons from head to toe. These days i'm a lot more savvy and 'self-lovey' about what I expose my more delicate organs to. Progressive house and ear-drum-damaging-doof have made way for pure sound waves that replenish my body [...]

Dude…Big. News. The Wabi-Sabi Shop Is Open!

If you’ve been part of the WSW tribe for a while now you’ve probably spent some time working up a sweat with me by streaming workout videos on the website or YouTube.

Yep, WSW workout videos are now available for you to download and keep! Wohooo!

That’s My Jam: Rage, Rinse, Repeat

If I had a nickel for every medical intuitive that’s pulled the “Liver/Anger” card on me over the years…well I’d have a lot of nickels. My kinesiologist, acupuncturist, theta healer and even my remedial masseuse have all gazed into their crystal balls and seen the same angry little liver. (For those who are uninitiated into the world of non-Western medicine: In many healing traditions the body’s organs are connected to specific emotions- and the liver is often associated with anger.) Initially I didn't get it. “Don't got no rage ‘round here,” [...]

New Interview: Brieann Gets Wabi-Sabi With Lex Weinstein

Many moons ago I had the pleasure of training Lex Weinstein - Blogger, Artist, Stylist and “Ambassador Of The Senses,” among other things. Hers is the voice of free-thinkers, rebels, creative minds and peaceful rule breakers. Those who’ve traded the modern hamster wheel and 9-to-5 security of the “real world” for full time wandering, adventure and inspiration. True to Lex's life, our One-On-One sessions together were a trip. Spontaneous, unpredictable on and off screen adventures. We trained on the sunny shores of Burleigh Heads, in the back of her broom [...]

The Digitised Self: The Perils of Hero Worship + Who You Post To Be

The digitised self. The portraits we showcase in the 640px by 640px frame known as Instagram. Moments (more often manufactured than candid), images that we decide “will carry this message well.” It all becomes twisted when it's received as a fixed reality, a snapshot representing a life in which blemishes, bad hair days, bloated bellies, imperfection, sadness and darker shades of suffering do not exist. It's surprisingly easy to be seduced by pretty pictures. It’s easy to think the “sun shines out of their arse.”  It’s easy to think she [...]
