The free 2 hour seminar was held on Friday 23rd on the University campus at Sippy Downs.

I Wonder if Anyone Reads This?

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Sunday, July 18, 2010, In : General 
Hmmm... is it a question or just an out loud thought spewed out into cyberspace.  I do find myself musing over the wonders of the internet as a forum from time to time... Im writing, but is anyone listening?!  Its a little dangerous to forget that this page Im typing is flying out there to be picked up by anyone, anywhere, anytime... forgetting this tiny, yet vital, piece of information could have me spilling my most private moments that happen in my 'head space'.  Would this be a bad thing? ...

Meditation also comes in many forms during your everyday life.  Anything that maintains 100% of your awareness and focus and develops your innate creativity can be a form of meditation.  You don’t have to sit for hours and hours forcing your brain to shut down.  In fact, anything that you have to force takes you out of the Soul-Mind head space and back into worrying about all those things you have to do...

Excuse me, I just 'blogged'!

Kristy Lee Rackham Full time parent, part-time nursing student, writer, key-note speaker, facilitator, entrepreneur... I subscribe to the belief that if you're clever with your time and where you put your energy, you CAN have the cake and eat it too! Still working on what flavour to make the cake though! My passion is creating... creating anything, in any form makes me happy! My goal is to lead my children (and others!) by example... its a big task and Im learning so much about myself through their eyes. As they grow, so do I! Most importantly, I want to show them that if you have a dream, you can achieve it with a bit of dedication, discipline, guts and a belief that anything is possible. So I guess that I want to teach them to create as well... create their own destiny! Email me at, I'd love to hear from you.
