What if we, as women, stopped allowing our truest selves to be diluted by the insidious expectations, conditioning and convention that bombard us from infancy, eroding our self-esteem and undermining our authenticity?
Tam is on a journey to find the way back to that authenticity, reclaiming Woman Undiluted one step at a time.

Compassion Antennae can Change the World!

In a previous post I wrote about the power of gratitude to change our every-day world-view. How when we consciously seek things to be grateful for, we start to find them everywhere. The same is true of compassion, and it is a wonderful thing to bring into the forefront of our consciousness. Once my clients [...]

Psychological Crisis: Dismantling the Walls

The day before the Berlin Wall came down, I lost my mind. It was the eighth of November 1989; a Thursday. Much later, my best friend Alison noted “two walls came down at once”. Mental illness affects at least one quarter of the population of the Western World. For those who have not suffered it, [...]

FF is for Ffeminist – Breasts, Bras and the Older Woman

I’ve got big breasts. I have had since, at the age of 11, the startling bumps that had recently appeared on my little-girl chest suddenly inflated into something with a definite cleavage.

Being Woman Undiluted

Throughout the ages, women have been required to be, and not to be, many things.

I was required not to be boisterous, loud, demanding, “too brave”, muddy, fascinated, curious, wild, angry or self-sufficient. I [...]

Light follows Darkness: Transition, Gratitude and Trust

It’s March today! Flowers are blooming, buds erupting on the trees, and blossoms appearing everywhere. I didn’t see it coming, in this new environment of mine. The huge magnolia tree that’s heralded the start of Spring for me these past 24 years is 100 miles away, and I live in a city now, with fewer [...]
