Under the canopy of green listening to the leaves photosynthesise! Spent a blissful day practicing the art of sensing & seeing at The Nest. #contemplativephotography #artofseeing #thenest #colourtherapy #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #naturemeditation #mapleleaf #rest
Hope. Finally got thru to an actual person at the PM’s office today to express my concern for the refugees on Manus & to ask what his plan is to resettle them in a place where they have access to proper medical, psychological & social services. Freedom is more than the absence of razor wire fences. #manusisland #freedom #hope #bringthemhere #orwhynotnz? #spooniesolidarity #queersolidarity #yogalife  #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #melbourneyoga

Discovered some oddly pruned shrubs that looked like straw on my walk today. #deadoralive? #strawtopiary? #slowlife #spoonielife #dailyderive #walkingmeditation #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #melbourneyoga
Day of rest & recovery. Living with ME/CFS means plenty of cat napping, so it's great to have an actual cat to share the snoozing with! #selfcare #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #spoonielife #slowlife #yogalife #devonrex #catlover #cattherapy #restorativeyoga #accessibleyoga #diversability #rest #catnap #gratitude #melbourneyoga
My favourite 'friendly' gum trees on the dirt road up to Clearview Retreat. They always make me smile because they look like they are saying hello or waving goodbye! #talkingtrees #gumtrees #tallarookforest #taungurungcountry #clearviewretreat #yogaretreat #yogainnature #restorativeyoga #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #embodiedecology #melbourneyoga #mecfs #mecfsrecovery
The ever changing view from the yoga room at Clearview Retreat. This morning these green hills were submerged in a magical sea of fog. #taungurungcountry #clearviewretreat #yogaretreat #nofilter #restorativeyoga #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #selfcare #yogainnature
Slowing down to appreciate the patterns of nature puts my mind at ease. #contemplativephotography #yogaretreat #yogainnature #restorativeyoga #rest #slowlife #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #selfcare #mecfs #mecfsrecovery
The view at the gate to Clearview Retreat. Looking fwd to spending the weekend looking at the sky instead of the screen. #restorativeyoga #yogaretreat #cloudgazing #amazing #nofilter #selfcare #slowlife #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #yogainnature #embodiedecology

Swipe to the next image & imagine what it would be like if all the flowers in your neighbourhood were etiolated, bleached of colour & life. No flowers, no bees, no birds, no fruit... . I contemplated this on my walk today, to imagine how it must feel to witness the coral bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef. . Today is a national day of action to call on governments to stop the Adani coal mine that threatens the survival of this unique marine environment & its inhabitants. . Both state & federal govts are failing to protect the reef. So it's up to us to fight for it. . Wherever you live, take a moment today to think about the loss of an entire eco-system & please do something to help save it from destruction. . #stopadani #coralnotcoal #nonewcoal #fightforthereef #coralbleaching #greatbarrierreef #qld #acf #bobbrownfoundation #thegreens #australiangreens #melbournespring #peaflowers #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #melbourneyoga #environment #climatechange
Strength: spoonie-style. I used to like being a strong independent, woman. But living with a chronic illness that has taken my physical strength has made me revise the version of feminism I was embodying. I now recognise the ableism inherent in that way of being. And yet I still cringe when I have to ask someone to carry something for me. . Finding the strength to accept your body as it is & the courage to ask for help from others is much harder than lifting weights, climbing mountains or doing a 10min headstand! Yoga has taught me how to respect my body & use support to create stability & clarity. Body-Mind Centering has taught me how to embody strength in surprising new ways. It's not all about the muscular system! . In what ways are you spoonie-strong? . PS. Did you notice the pattern in the peeling bark looks like an upside down women symbol? . #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #selfcare #spoonie #spooniestrong #spoonieyoga #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #yogabodyimage #everybodyisayogabody #diversability #accessibleyoga #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #somatictherapy #yogatherapy #bmc #urbantrees #strongwomen #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #feministyoga #voteyes #melbourneyoga
Grevillea! You are a wonder! First day out for a walk after a week in bed with a virus that left my limbs weak & wobbly. Did a slow photo-walk to the end of my street appreciating the colours of spring. #slowlife #selfcare #spoonielife #yogalife #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #dailyderive #photowalk #naturemeditation #grevillea #melbournespring #melbourneyoga #voteyes
The alternating rhythm of life: inhalation/exhalation, exertion/recuperation, centrifugal/centripetal spirals. After a week of supporting others, today I needed to turn my energy inwards & curl into a restorative spoonie Sunday in bed with my cat-napping companion. #sunday #selfcare #spoonie #spiral #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #devonrex #catlady #lgbtiqa #rest #restorative #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #melbourneyoga
