At the moment we are closed and beavering away behind the scenes on essential renovations so you can enjoy this magnificent place again as soon as possible.

Thought for Today

Awakening Self-awareness

The foundation of all spiritual growth and personal development is the awakening of self-awareness. Most people however are not yet self-aware, and the majority of those, are not aware that they are not aware.

Self-awareness is easy and begins with simply taking a mental step back, and observing your thoughts, feelings, attitudes and actions. Whenever you do, you learn about your ‘self’ and the basis of personal change and growth is always learning.

Step back, what do you see, what enters your awareness? What does it tell you? What does it show you about yourself? Don’t judge it, just see it. Don’t run away from what you see just watch it. Accept it. Allow whatever is happening within your thoughts and feelings just to be. And suddenly you will find that inner peace which surpasses all pleasure.
