What Are You Inviting In?

The last month of the year. It’s the perfect time to begin slowing down. I know, you’re saying – “Slow down, Janette? It’s the holidays!” And yes, it can be a busy time. It’s also the darkest time of the year and so we’re invited to hibernate a bit, go within, reflect. While we’re in …

Let’s Uni-Task This Week

Multi-task. It’s a relatively new word. It came from the computer world in the 60s but for most of us, it didn’t enter in to our vocabulary until much later. To me, it’s interesting how people talk about this ‘skill’ so proudly. Yes, it can seem efficient sometimes to do two or more things at …

Finding the Gems of Openness

Often times the simplest things are the most powerful. Openness is one of those things. With it comes a wealth of gems. When clients come to see me they are often smack in the middle of a dilemma, challenge, conflict – with someone else or within themselves. In this state, things can feel confusing. We …
