Do you remember the first time your Heart was broken ? Did you ever get over it ? 

Would you like to feel closer to your loved ones ?

Does your mind ever get you into trouble with stinky thinking?  

Imagine how good it would feel to live aligned with your inner courage, power and potency?

Imagine feeling settled and calm in your mind, and happy in your Heart and relationships. Yippeee!!

Cameron Speaking: "As a healthcare professional, everyday I listen to stories from people struggling with their minds and relationships. Most of us have never had any lessons on how to love and be real with ourselves and others. Most of us have not had guidance on how to create healthy relationships or how to steer the mind - no wonder so many of us are challenged ! 

The teachings introduce how to take charge of your mind, listen to your Heart and live with more compassion for yourself and others.

 You will discover holistic views of the Heart and thinking-mind relationship, from Chinese Medical, Yogic and Cross-cultural perspectives. These word views offer you keys to find your happy place, settle your mind and access your inner calm and courage.

Did you know most of us have no language for our inside lives? Most people think and feel, without knowing how to express and communicate what's most important to us. Leading retreats with people from all cultures has shown me how discovering language for our inner life can be a powerful path to healing. This course introduces simple everyday language for the Hearts areas of influence."



Science is catching up with the Mystics!

Science can now measure how the energetic field of the Heart is 60 X stronger than the brain. In Chinese medicine the Heart is called the “Supreme Controller” as it is the ruler of the thinking mind and our doorway to LOVE. 

Learning to balance the Heart and mind gives us access to our own super power. WOW WOW WOW !!!

Instinctively we know our Heart is our doorway to happiness and sense of strength and wellbeing. Evidence from Yogic, Indigenous and Chinese medical traditions have demonstrated this truth for thousands of years. Aligning head & Heart is designed to help you connect to your inside world and create balance in your life, loving and thinking.

B Ac, Chinese Medicine Practitioner, Visionary, Leader

Lucky for me I stumbled upon the path of Chinese medicine at age 21 which literally saved my life. From Day One we were shown how to see ourselves as parts of nature and how each of us has a ‘natural way of being in the world’. As a Farmers daughter the nature based philosophy made perfect sense to me, of course life is powered by energy! Fast forward nearly 4 decades of integration including; ongoing clinical acupuncture practice, meditation, Yoga, teaching/owning an Acupuncture College, a decade leading Wellbeing retreats in China, New Zealand, Bali, Australia. Education, empowering people to know and help themselves is core to my practice.. To me, learning Mind-body ABC is as basic and obvious as having a driving license for your car. Balancing our energy, being our true Self and accessing our inner courage transforms our lives and our world! I co-created YBY to give people easy access to wisdom teachings of the ages, and practical pathways to lifelong wellbeing. Growing up in the 1960’s and 70’s I experienced a life of relative freedom and truth. Now here we are in the 2020’s and things are pretty messed up. I feel deeply for younger people who have inherited this strange modern world. Thankfully some of the weird systems and unconsciously accepted ways of relating, are now being openly challenged! We can no longer pretend widespread expressions of ‘power over others’, are OK. It’s time for a world of ‘power with’. As complex as our problems seem to be, the solutions are surprisingly simple. This is where YBY comes in, offering practical guidance on re-aligning with what is good, true and beautiful. We introduce new/old ways of being, nurturing self-care and mutual empowerment. We encourage genuine connection and heartfelt sharing as a powerful path to healing.
