Greeting to you dear barefoot readers, from a somewhat frosty day in North Berwick- the sand was genuinely frosty as I went for my morning swim. But Six months ago, on a sunny warm day at the Detox Health Beauty Festival, which took place at Archerfield walled gardens, I launched my first book Permission To Shine . For the second year running despite days of rain and wind before, the sun shone on us all day long.
The feedback I have received from people who have already bought and read the book has been so encouraging and I have had to dip into myself many times to reconnect to my inner wisdom when my own inner critic chatter gets too much.
All The Barefoot Talks were filmed on the day by the lovely Julie Neilson, and you will see more of that in the new year, but today, I’m sharing my own barefoot talk giving myself permission to Shine with you.
If you haven’t got the book yet or want to gift a copy to someone for Christmas, you can order signed copies directly for £9.99 (plus postage and packaging) from the website shop www.barefootambition.co.uk or from most online book sellers, and locally from Norden In North Berwick High Street. The Permission to Shine Card deck, as featured above, is now also available for £15 per pack and you can purchase these available via the website or from Norden.
I would love it if you would share my book with others, that you believe would benefit from hearing my story, and my guide to loving and cherishing yourself. I believe in this book baby, and she is ready to spread her wings further, and with your help reach more people- we all need to give ourselves that permission to be who we came here to be. Once you have watched the video scroll down as I have some rather exciting news!!
Coming up… the next Circle of light meditation and healing circle is taking place with me at The Barefoot sanctuary on Sunday 24th November 10.30am -12noon. To book your spot click here. The final one for 2019 will be on Sunday 22nd December- for that book here.
The Exciting Plans for 2020.. SAVE THE DATE! This has been in the mix for quite a few years now- so I’m thrilled to be able to tell you that I have a save the date for those who you who are ready to attend a unique retreat that I am co creating and co hosting with the lovely yogi and singer song writer Roxana Vilk at The Barefoot Sanctuary next year – ( That’s Roxana introducing me in the above video) the event will run over 4 days Thursday 23rd April (6.30pm)- Sunday 26th April (1pm) .

We are both feeling so sure about this event and can’t wait to experience with magic what will be sure to happen when we spend this time together..
But before that…I’m off to Cambodia and Australia…
A huge thank you to those of you who supported the Classroom Of Hope fundraiser. We reached the target, the school has been built, and I am heading to Cambodia, with the rest of the fundraising team lead by my dear friend Alisoun Mackenzie, to attend the official opening of the School. You can read Alisoun’s full blog about the school here. This new school is already operational as the new educational home for over 350 boys and girls. A fact you may not know – but one of the reasons were were so keen to make sure girls were well represented in our school- (they make up over 50% of the total numbers)- is that one of the best ways to prevent female child trafficking is to ensure girls are registered in schools! If you want to find out more about the charity we have worked with to build the school and how you could continue to financially support them please visit www.classroomofhope.org
As an add on to that trip, I will also be travelling onto to Brisbane Australia. As well as hanging out with my lovely sister, I will be speaking about my Book and doing a workshop, with the lovely Toni Reilly. Toni spoke at The Barefoot Sanctuary in 2017. So if you are in that area or know people that are, that would be interested in my work, I would love to hear from you or them…
So if you have got to the bottom of this – huge congratulations and thank you for your time.
Much love and huge thanks always
