The power of imagination according to nuclear physicist and director of Terra Yoga, Dr Anne Devismes

Anne DPlease, can we meet you? Tell us a little about your background.

I was born and raised in France. In my early twenties, I moved to Germany where I studied nuclear physics and obtained my PhD. After several years in the USA, doing research in physics and working as a science editor, I finally moved to Norway, where I have been living for almost 9 years. A need for more meaning in my life

A simple and effective Japanese method to relax in 5 minutes-a lifesaver for HSP


In spite of our best efforts, we all experience a certain amount of stress as part of our daily life. As an HSP you might be particularly sensitive to (potentially) stressful moments. While a little bit of stress might just kick-start you to become your very best (just like a good cup of café might do, kick- starting you in the morning), excessive stress can interfere with normal daily activities and take a toll on your personal lives and health.

But this need not be the case. Today. I would like to invite you to try an ancient Japanese technique of self-relaxation that will not take you more than 5 minutes a day and can be done just about anywhere.

Happy Valentijnsdag! Deel het geluk…

Valentijn2.jpgHet is bijna Valentijnsdag!

Even los van de commercie, ik blijf het idee leuk vinden om een dag lang de aandacht vooral te vestigen op de liefde. En voor mij betekend dat dat ik niet alleen min betere helft gedenk maar alle mensen die ik speciaal vind, en dat is eigenlijk iedereen die ik ken. Want iedereen heeft wel iets wat ik bewonder of waar ik van kan leren. Omdat ik in het verleden zelf veel hulp heb gehad bij het ‘leren’ (en dat nog steeds heb, trouwens) wil ik jouw graag helpen bij de ontwikkelingen in je eigen leven en in dat van je dierbaren.

The pitfall of over-adaptation: why to stop it and how

overadaptationLately, I’ve had a lot of conversations with people who find it challenging to stand up for themselves, not only during the Christmas season. They find themselves in situations where they would like to react more according to their own wishes.

Although this ‘risk’ might be particularly high for (high) sensitive persons, everybody finds him or herself confronted with a challenging choice sometimes: be true to yourself or keep the peace?

Here’s why to stop over-adaptation –  and how!
