Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love in many ways but it’s not all about romance. The message we would like to share with you is that love comes in all forms. This year we are encouraging you to fall in love with your true nature. As the saying goes: ‘love yourself in order to love someone else.’

‘Learning to love yourself, is the greatest love of all’ –Michael Masser

This Valentine’s day lets take our lesson from nature…

She knows…that even receiving is an act of giving.
She knows…one must create their own flowers of meaning and love.
She is always present ……..even when she is alone.
She knows…. that space can answer a longing.
She knows that even death can be a union and… nourishment a return to oneness.
She knows a snarl can be in the service of harmony.
And innocence is our deepest forgotten truth.
She knows……that even when she travels she remains at home in the now.
She knows that there is no need to look for love when your true nature is love itself.
