My hut at New Body & Mind Day 3 A few breakthroughs today. 1. Unguided meditation. Today's meditation session was only guided (i.e. with someone telling you what to do) for a few minutes. The rest of the time was our own to let our minds go. Now, I'm not great at meditation; it's hard … Continue reading Detoxification Retreat Review – Part 2

Tastes like sweat. 8/4 - Roti (cheese) - It was a paper-thin bready-type item filled with cheese. I quite enjoyed it, but what's not to love? 8/5 - Kale … Continue reading Rhys’ New Foods List – August 09

First time for me. I felt like the President, but I had no one to turn and wave to. … Continue reading One Night in Bangkok
We made it to Bangkok! An update to follow in a day or two - just a quick note so our mothers won't worry 🙂
