Touching the Truth

At the beginning of 2011, Jacqui Cullen and Annie Zed went to Portugal for a holiday. Being completely in the moment, guided by signs and following intuition, they experienced greater life clarity than it is possible to articulate.

The year since has brought deeper connection and alignment with that which we truly are. Now, Jacqui and Annie are offering a nurturing space in which others can also experience this astounding shift into clarity.

Touching the Truth is about total acceptance of the moment:
who, where and what you are NOW in the context of the Universe.

Spend 7 days as a member of our Clarity Tribe in Praia da Rocha on the Algarve in Portugal.

There is no itinerary, there is no map. Together, we will flow harmoniously with nature’s signals as ancient tribes have always done.

We will reconnect with the True Essence of our BEing. There is no work, and nothing that must be done. It is staying present to the moment and authentically sitting with what feels most right.

Stay in a 4 star hotel with indoor spa and pool.

Walk with us on pristine beaches and feel the freedom shine.

Join us, Annie Zed and Jacqui Cullen.

The cost is £525 per person for 7 nights at a 4 star hotel a short distance from the beach and main strip. There will be 2 people sharing a twin bed room, and for this reason, this trip is open to women only. The hotel provides breakfast. Flights from London Stansted to Faro, 1 standard hold and 1 carry on baggage, and transfers to Praia da Rocha are also included. We depart Saturday the 3rd of March 2012 and return Saturday the 10th. Lunch and dinner are not included, so you will need additional spending money for this and any other purchases you may choose to make.

Although you may spend your time as you wish (on your own or with the group), we do feel you would get a much better experience in a group situation. 

There are 6 places available. (We are keeping the group to a total of 8 including ourselves.) Contact Jacqui on 0208 502 3169 to book your place as soon as possible. Full payment is required by Sunday the 8th of January.

Early bird special. Book now and pay by 11th of December to receive a £100 discount. Pay only £425.

Divine Timing

Photo credit: Monika Wisniewska, Dreamstime.comI rarely plan. When I schedule in advance, things have a way of re-organizing according to the needs and wants of others, circumstances, and even the weather. I’m all for spontaneity and living in the now; doing what feels right, as and when it feels right.

Not everyone works this way. Hence, appointments, schedules and agendas; goals, action plans and itineraries. Despite these timed, set-in-stone events, life has a way of rejigging according to its own rules.

The universe is a highly orchestrated entity. No matter how we try to mould it our own way, it wins. Attempt to force it, and it will find a way to re-route us to its own direction.

Intuition is listening deeply to the instructions of the Universe. The impulse to ‘act now’ because the flow is carrying us in this moment: this is divine timing. Be prepared to be unprepared. When plans go awry, if someone doesn’t show up, if there are traffic delays, trust that the Universe knows what it’s doing. It’s following its own pace: divine timing.

Running in Circles

Photo credit: Fuzzybearphoto,

I frequently find myself running in circles. No matter how fast I run, or how hard I try, when I get to the finish line, I find myself straight back at the starting line, poised to re-enter the race.

It’s like a perpetual Groundhog Day (see the film trailer). I go through the motions with apathy, and expect things to change. They don’t. So I get up the next morning and do the same, with maybe just a tiny tweak. I still find myself arriving where I started. I get frustrated. It becomes a puzzle, not unlike a Rubik’s cube.

What haven’t I noticed? What isn’t lining up yet?

No matter how much energy I expend, no matter how much I analyze, very little changes. I just keep running in these darn circles, praying for a miracle, a way out, a hand up, a spring forward. It mocks me, knowing it has me trapped in its maze.

Then I remember. Live in the moment. Relax, enjoy the scenery, even if it is for the umpteenth time — I’ll pretend it is the first time. I stay open to seeing anything new, anything I may have missed before. I look at it from different angles; scan the sights high, low, backwards, up, down and around. Again and again, in playful awareness, like a baby observing its new world from outside the womb.

The Universe has a way of moving us along to the next stage of the game of life, exactly when we’re ready and meant to be there. Let’s enjoy the now. Smell the roses. Let’s keep in motion, but make it a relaxed, gentle, observant pace. Let’s stop analyzing and chasing, because we’ll only be running in circles.
