“Hygge is a quality of presence and an experience of togetherness. It is a feeling of being warm, safe, comforted and sheltered.
Hygge is an experience of selfhood and communion with people and places that anchors and affirms us, gives us courage and consolation.
To hygge is to invite intimacy and connection. It’s a feeling of engagement and relatedness, of belonging to the moment and to each other.
Hygge is a sense of abundance and contentment.
Hygge is about being not having.”

Ben and I are going away for a week. As you read this we’ll already be on the plane.
A friend is at the farm taking care of our dogs and cows and vegetable garden. My team are looking after my emails and the phones and the work stuff.
Ben and me? We’re looking after each other. It’s been a tough year. The illness, decline and death of his mother. The loss of a dear friend. The support of another going through a terrible time. Drought. Illness.
We’re tired. We need a break, before one of us breaks.
I’ll still be meditating. And I’ll still blog. Because those things are as ingrained in me as cleaning my teeth. I can’t not do them. But everything else can wait.
Be kind to yourself this week while these energies make all of us empaths more sensitive than usual.
Biggest hugs and love, Nicole xx
