before I left Chiang Mai I took some photographs for my Thai Massage Teachers Somwang Khachenniam & Kea Metawarin Kap. This is one of my favourites from the few closeups that I shot that day.

Incredible teachers & thai massage practitioners.

about my teacher Somwang Khachenniam

31 Jan

This morning I learnt that Somwang Khachenniam and Kea Meta Kap together with a team are opening their own Thai Massage Spa & hopefully school below the South-East corner of the Chiang Mai old city moat.

I will share with you a google map address as soon as I have it confirmed.

In the meantime if you are looking for my incredible teacher then please get in touch with me and I will help you find this outstanding team! I do not make recommendations lightly: these are some of the very best teachers and very best practitioners of Thai Massage that you will ever find.

breathing / meditation

8 Sep

I think this is simply and clearly presented. It is easy to follow and effective.

I would know as I am currently riding on the oceans of a wild and stormy life, it appears that somebody didn’t pack a compass nor packed a guide to the stars. So while my little boat is tossed to and fro and I wonder where it will all lead me – all the while hoping that I will not capsize – this little breathing meditation is soothing and helpful.

You have so, so much power to create a world that makes you proud..

I find this video showing the CEO of Nestle speak about nature, water and work absolutely, wildly terrifying. I shuddered all the way through watching this video. Where did this devilish man appear from?! Spawn of rotting badness!.. Vote by NON-purchase. Please do!

And that is just it, if you choose just 5% of ethically, environmentally better choices than you might have done until today. And if you keep up that 5% and maybe make it 10% next month and stick to it, then you can change our world.

We are collective so, so powerful and strong. Everybody counts so much. Everybody’s actions count for so much. Weigh in your vote and vote with your purchase choices.

Climate, ethics, health, mind and happiness. Dear friends will you join me; a tiny bit is so incredibly much more than nothing. And everybody no matter how buys or poor can do their best and contribute a tiny bit, what do you think? Do you agree?

Tumeric and Cinnamon

10 May

Sorry this is just a short one:

I wanted to quickly share how incredibly much both tumeric and cinnamon seem to have helped me with my terrible joint inflammation on my left big toe joints. The pain was starting to spread and make me quite miserable when I remembered to add the anti-inflammatory tumeric to pretty much everything I ate. (I eat a lot of raw things and banana smoothies made with bananas and coconut milk. I don’t usually eat much wheat or processed foods. But had just emerged from a period of travel in which my food choices were limited, and it seemed to have set off the inflammations, which worryingly I think are a form of arthritis.).

It took just a couple of days to make a difference. Beware though: tumeric will stain your teeth, so brush extra carefully, extra properly. Both spices together seem to have made a huge difference to my wellbeing. I doubt that this was psychosomatic, I was too busy to think about the ‘wonder-cures’, they just worked while I had forgotten that I was even using them. They helped more than I hoped they could.

let’s remember that we have bodies and they need stretching and sunshine
