Well, here we are at the start of a new decade. It’s a time when everything around us seems to mired in confusion, disinformation and negativity. We have ecological disasters, politicians from every party who serve only themselves, business uncertainty, precarious democracies, rising levels of violence, unwarranted entitlement and social divisiveness. It’s not really how we want the world to be. So how are we to cope with this increasingly dystopian environment? Are we just to sit back and accept that the world is a pretty grim place for most people? No. I don’t think so. Most holistic therapists I know trained and set up their businesses because they wanted to help other people enjoy better health and a better quality of life, because they cared. Really, cared about people and the planet and felt part of a bigger picture –a planet-wide ecosystem that was accepting of different values and beliefs. What we need is to find a kinder way of living and being.
