It's nearly one year to the day, my father, William Keeler, passed away on June 14th, 2015. How fitting it was to share my story about how his passing directly influenced and inspired me to be of greater service in this world. Last night while speaking at Hub Dot London's event “Making the World a Better Place”, at the magical Petersham Nurseries, something happened that's never happened before. At one point I blanked and forgot what I was supposed to say next. I knew my story, my speech, so how could this have possibly happened to me? I’ve spoken on stage before, I’ve led classes and workshops, and facilitated retreat – surely this should not have been any different right? Well it was.


"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time." - John Lubbock

Every Sunday in Spain it amazes me and warms my heart to see families and friends gather inside or out, enjoying each other's company, and actually sitting down to have a meal together. This week I share my experience of the European notion "Switch off Sundays" and how this S.O.S. has been life-changing for me and my family. You too can learn to de-stress from distress.
