The Importance of self-enquiry

You may have heard quotes relating to, “Know thyself”.

Here are a few of them:

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom” – Aristotle

“Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.” – Lao Tzu

“Do thine own work, and know thyself” – Plato

Our crew’s combined experience of many years of doing our own ‘inner work’ tells us that if we do not examine the feelings and reasons behind our own behaviours and experiences of life, we will forever be condemned to a life of either numbness, or uncontrolled over-reactivity to normal situations and emotions. Or both!

Our crew are not gurus. We are normal people, who have all experienced our own challenges and have benefited from looking inwards from time to time.

Our mission is to share what has worked for us, because we know just how beneficial such exploration and support can be. We have felt all manner of human experiences. Numbness, being out of control, confused, depressed, anxious and all things in between. We still do experience such challenges at times, but knowledge of self and a great support network helps us to find our way out quicker. We want to offer that to you.

We offer experiences and mentorship, to help to shine a gentle light onto your blind spots so that you may choose your way through your challenges, or simply so that you may live life with more grace and humility.
