I can honestly preface this story by saying that I have no clear recollection how I found myself with the Yamabushi, or the pilgrimage that came along with the adventure that was my time with them.
Like all great stories, I like to think the experience found me, but that’s for me to ponder and for you, the reader, to discern based on your own views of serendipity, destiny or universal laws.
Dear Ms Fitzsimons
re: Climate Crisis / Ms. Greta Thunberg / Mr. Ryan Tubridy.
For the avoidance of doubt, my complaint is to be treated as formal in nature. I have read the procedures as detailed in your email of today and I can confirm the following.
I have learned not to fear death.
Learning not to be afraid of death was a liberating lesson in itself, but in releasing my hold on the fear of dying, I found myself also released from all other erstwhile fears. As it turns out, once we find peace with the temporal nature of life, we are able to smile at all other fears, all other persecutions, travesties and setbacks. Because when we understand that everything—including life itself—is truly temporary then why allow ourselves to become wrapped in thought about any particular moment? Instead, as the Beatles so wisely advised, “let it be” and know that all things will pass.

The Power of the Mind Body Connection
But why is disconnection between our minds and bodies of such detriment?
Our body communicates with us, it sends us signals when something significant needs our attention. We know this; we get a belly rumble when we’re hungry, a flutter of the heart when a love interest shows up, a sore neck when we need a new pillow—yet we so often ignore its pleas when it comes to illness. We have lost touch with our mind/body connection to such extent that we have no idea how to interpret its communication, or even that we need to.

The brave investigate and work on their emotions, while the weak hide and castigate the brave. We have seen social media provide a breeding ground for trolls who try to attack those who speak up about their battles with their mental health, their anxiety, PTSD or depression.
The journey began one afternoon sitting in our old house watching the Minimalist documentary on Netflix with my then 9-year-old son Luca. We watched the documentary and once finished, I told Luca we should really make some significant changes and get rid of some of our ‘stuff’. He laughed, pointing out the fact that we were watching the movie in the cinema room of our house, a house that needed two oil-fired boilers to sustain the heating through all parts of the property.
In your business, political party, sports team or within your circle of friends, the weakest link will impact the collective. Should we look to improve the weakest link or should we look to cut it out, remove it and would that improve things or adversely impact the remaining members?
It never ceases to amaze me how managers have this incredible ability to tolerate under performance rather than stepping into those difficult conversations, taking assertive action and ultimately do what they are paid to do - manage.
One of the first things you will learn whilst working with me is the difference between fight, flight and freeze, and rest and relax. The first is a state of reaction and the second is a state of observation. One is a place of fear, frustration and anger, whilst the other is a place of creativity, flow-state and true potential.
Did you know your immune system does most of it’s important work whilst we sleep? Fighting infection and recovering from illness requires a good nights sleep. Equally poor sleep is a good indicator of other underlying issues including stress and anxiety. The more we can master our sleep the more we can find a greater sense of wellness and happiness.
By coming to terms with our fears, we can learn to see them simply as any other incident or memory, neither creating a high nor a low. There are numerous studies showing the benefits of stepping into your fears (with support from a professional) and coming to terms with them in order to let go of stress. In my practice as a psychotherapy coach I work with business leaders and professional athletes who have hit a glass ceiling, with something now holding them back.
David & Stephen Flynn (aka The Happy Pear) are friends and clients. Their business and branding is a testimony to consistency in respect to social media content, well-being and truly living the life you portray on social media. We share morning swims and philosophies on life.
This video was shot in the forest and on the beach near my home in Greystones, Ireland. A huge part of my work is connected to nature. I swim each morning in the Irish Sea. Floating and meditating whilst nature unfolds and sculpts the landscape around me are crucial elements of my daily routine.
Here is my personal story
I am generally found swimming in the cold Irish Sea, barefoot running, building a new business idea or advising my client base globally…. Otherwise meditating, developing mindfulness programs and enjoying a rich and varied plant-based diet.
Life is about self-discovery, more self-discovery and repeating this process over and over again. Success is not made, it is sustained.
