We just love using essential oils to enhance a space; be it your office, coaching or treatment room, or any other room you like. This fantastic diffuser doesn’t burn the oil using an open flame like most traditional burners. Instead, it uses a high-frequency oscillator that produces an ultrasound that splits the molecules; thus producing a cold mist that diffuses throughout the room.
It also looks pretty cool as the colour of the unit can be set to either one colour or can continually change colour depending on your mood. It’s also much safer than a flame as it cuts its own power when the water level falls below 20 ml. The diffuser has a full resevoir capacity of 100 ml which can provide over 3 hours of diffusion at full power.
we certainly can’t rate this product highly enough since starting to us it at home and on our courses nearly a year ago and believe that you’ll love it just as much!
Virus of the Mind
Memes are ideas, concepts or thought forms that spread from one person to another within a culture. The term meme was originally coined by Richard Dawkins (an evolutionary biologist) and is based on the Ancient Greek for imitate (mimema), and modelled on gene to form the word meme.
In this book, Richard Brodie, who also created Microsoft Word, calls memes ‘Viruses of the Mind’ because of their similarity to both computer and biological viruses. Just like their biological name-sakes mind viruses have one purpose and that is to propagate. Their whole purpose is to be as insidious as possible, invading a host, multiplying and spreading to new hosts to do the same. However, unlike their biological ‘cousins’, of which we’re all too aware of the dangers from, viruses of the mind often seem harmless (or worse we’re not even aware of their existence).
These mind viruses surround us and take the form of ideas or concepts that either propagate and quickly spread or wither and die – think advertising jingles you can’t get out of your head, old wives tales passed from adults to children, cultural rituals embedded in society like handshaking or not talking with your mouth full, beliefs and ideas passed amongst family members / peers / friends – political affiliation, religion, what garage to take your car to for an MOT.
Only by pulling down the veil and exposing these mind viruses to the light can we recognise their existence and be in a position to challenge their acceptability to us, thus enabling us to be free to choose to keep them or let them go – to truly ‘turn off the auto pilot’ if we so choose.
This book has been truly empowering for me, and I hope it sets you free too! Oops, I’ve just planted my own mind virus! – Andy

Baieido’s Imagine Series
Imagine bringing the old forward into the new. In Japanese it is called “Onko Chishin” and it is a very important concept in the artistic styling of Japan. It originates with Confucius and translates: “If a man keeps cherishing his old knowledge, so as continually to be acquiring new, he may be a teacher of others.”
This is the idea Baieido brings into their Imagine series of incense.
Sandalwood is perhaps the most relaxing scent of all time. Traded from ancient times, it was transplanted from Indonesia to India where the best Sandalwood still grows today. It is used in virtually every tradition of incense making and in the finest French perfumes. Baieido uses only the highest quality Indian Sandalwood in making this incense.
