As Be genki approaches its 10th birthday, I’m on one hand extremely excited and grateful to still be doing what I love to do – providing you with the inspiration and possibility for more energy, less stress, a better relationship with yourself and loved ones, and the possibility of a good night’s sleep.
On the other hand we’re taking the time to look at the way we do what we do, and to question if there is a better way we can help Be genki touch the hearts and lives of those who are seeking more holistic health, happiness and wellbeing.
Why? because every time I receive a letter from one of our customers about how a Be genki product has changed their life, a little tear of joy wells up inside my eyes.
The most recent one was as follows:
Thank you so much for my last sample. I have been massaging the Be Genki Serene body oil into my 2 year old and for the first time in many many months she is sleeping through the night.

Blue skies and cherry blossom in Tokyo … sometimes all you can do is “look up”.
Maybe I’m delusional, maybe I was given a few extra shots of wishful thinking, or maybe I just hope that my ‘rabbit hole thoughts’ can’t possibly be true … but as long as I’m here I’ll continue to look up and seek for, ask and implement different possibilities so that the beautiful planet that we live upon can one day be restored to exactly that, and free from the insanities that pollute the earth, oceans and air we breathe.
Travelling as much as I do it never fails to shock me when observing the state of the world. Tokyo is no exception. Whilst it is seductive to write about the devastation of the reality that is right in front of me, as I sit here feeling the tension of the Earth in the joints of my knees, I would like to suggest something different … to make conscious choices in our daily actions and look for the beauty in all moments.

No matter where I am in the world, September / October is my favourite time of year. It is simply beautiful no matter where we are. The sun shining. The skies blue. A breeze in the air. Not too hot. Not too chilly. So, as you can imagine, the Be genki ritual for October is all about getting outdoors to move your body and be with the beautiful surrounds of nature. Continue reading
Couldn’t resist sharing this video clip that I stumbled across on Facebook. I hope it brings as much happiness, smiles and laughter to your day as it did mine.
