Warrior no more

I love the concept of archetypes, I can’t even remember when I found about the idea, but I suspect it has always been there because of the vast amount of reading I have always done.

Red Tent

I was Googling around a couple of weeks ago, trying desperately to find a 5 Rhythms dance class, or a version of it, near to where I live. There are plenty in London, but I find getting into London exhausting and I do it enough for work. In my Google travels I found a Red […]

People commented on the post saying […]
