- A yoga practice that is grounded and encourages flexibility, strength and stability
In a world of so much uncertainty and change, a yoga practice that is grounded and encourages flexibility, strength and stability - particulatly in the deep core and pelvic girgle - is super supportive. Happy Hips! With love Rebecca Thompson: Be a Beacon Music by me : link HERE. #PowerofPresence #practicalspirituality #lessstress #beabeacon #shineyourlight #radicalchange #beyou #yogaforlife
- Deep listening and following training
I use my yoga practice as a deep listening and following training. Listening to my body, my womb, my heart and following intuitively... Moving from my core to deeply groove that way of being. Out of my mind and into embodied presense where Peace, Passion and Power are always available. How you practice on the mat is how you do life. This practice ended up being very liberating energetically, physically and emotionally as I explored opening through the hips and spine... perfect for what I was needing.

- I was interviewed the other week by the radically radiant Patrice Douglas
So I was interviewed the other week by the radically radiant Patrice Douglas on her 'Into the Nothing' podcast....getting REAL with fear. It's pretty illuminating - check it out. Listen HERE. Fear...it's part of our human experience and it can be pretty sneaky... It presents itself in different ways: Procrastination Tiredness Jealousy Doubt Physical pain Overwhelm Conflict...and so many more. In this podcast we talk about fear, what it is and isn't. Busting some myths around dealing with fear and basically getting REAL. Back to basics my friend. If we don't know how to get into a healthy relationship with fear, it is going to hold us back or wear us down every time!

- What goes on in temple space, stays in temple space 🙏🐉🌷🙏.
But here's a few pics of our majestic surrounds literally on our doorstep and a bushwalk we took to a nearby Cove. It's not hard to immerse in the omniscience of source when bathed in this beauty and held with the power of the stones, trees and ocean....AND.... In the 'Way of the Rose' we are also embracing the thorns with the rose...stingers mean its not safe to swim in the ocean, a last minute sick caterer, a house demolition happening 2 doors down and a local alarm going off overnight for a few hrs... all perfectly adding to the initiations . We've totally got this. @ Sovereign Quantum Leap: Beacon Graduate Retreat 2023 Rebecca Thompson: Be a Beacon
- Blessed Equinox and New Moon Beauties
This balance we seek It's more of a dance A play between and amongst the shadows and the light Until.... We laugh out loud In remembering Aaah yes all is one All is one Blessed be Rebecca Thompson: Be a Beacon Original artwork by Rebecca Thompson
- Be a Beacon theatre is coming.
I have a deepening respect for those in the performing arts! New to this particular journey, I'm finding the art of creating from conception to show ready an epic adventure. In weekly rehearsals for our Beacon's show 'Turning Point', hours (and hours..) of playtime reduce to a few minutes of showtime. Visioning, Refining, Choreographing, Remembering, Connecting, Recreating, Timing, Tech-ing....it's an amazing process of surrender, listening, following, courage and faith....priming presence again and again. Beyond grateful to have Afra Feeney from 6 Mangrove Productions to partner in directing/producing and our Beacon Heroines Amanda Bronn, Jodie Hewitt, Fiona Rogan, Kerrie Chandler, Teri Jenkins, Tee Kae , Wendy Davey and Vera Raneri bringing all of themselves to this venture...it's a LOT to ask and I am truly humbled. What is emerging is raw, real, inspiring, touching and visually and emotionally compelling. If you are a human curious about delving beneath the surface of existence you will totally relate to this show, if you identify as a woman likely even more so. 'Turning Point: 8 Women, 1 Story, The only path that matters' Premieres 7pm May 27th on Bribie Island as part of the Moreton Bay Anywhere Festival. Keep an eye out as more details are released soon.... Projection pics by Martin Drury
- Moving our bodies
Moving our bodies can either be a way to push ourselves into some kind of perceived state of perfection. OR To explore and get to know ourselves better. To gently release where there is resistance. To create safety where there is instability. To gather strength where this a weakness. To open channels so that prana (life-force energy) can flow freely. In this way we prime ourselves for greatness. To become the vessel that feels safe, clear and courageous enough to hear, express and carry out your souls mission. For the mind, energy and body are not separate. How you treat one affects the other. This priming is fundamental to the path of Be A Beacon. With Love and Radiance Rebecca
- Something is birthing.....
'Most' people in my position start a podcast, write a book, do a speaking tour. AND sooo many people have 'suggested' these to me...umm thanks! But I'm not most people (and neither are you BTW). I did start a book once but it felt like walking through toffee. I had a speaking tour planned out, but covid put an end to that (and source has other plans). Podcast?...hhmm maybe, but not feeling it right now. There are NO shoulds. I know I have to FEEL it to create it....feel the juice, the expansion, the joy - and yes usually the fear! Late last year I started getting the feels...the feels for theatre. Yep I know, go big right!! But there it was undeniably sparking, bubbling, building.... Downloading, attracting, stirring the quantum field. Verbatim/collage theatre, mixed media, story-telling, connection, inspiring, raw, real, vulnerable...... Various perfect co-creators came into my field...magic It became apparent it wasn't just about me and my story, it was going to become a 'Be a Beacon' passion project too...the next step in expression, courageous leadership, vulnerability, presence under pressure and creativity for those Beacons feeling the call. It's just beginning, but it feels soooo good...Easeful, fun and full of possibility. Do I know how this all going to turn out? Not exactly, but I can feel the power in it, see the big vision. I don't need to see all the steps to get there....heck that would just be overwhelming! I trust each step will unfold at the right time...they already are. That's how harnessing the creator in you works. How do you know if something is right for you? It not only feels expansive in you, others catch the vibe too! Full permission to unleash the creator in you my love. .that's what you're here for. With Love and Radiance Rebecca
- Embodying lotus medicine...
Embodying lotus medicine... Medicine of beauty, manifestation and abundance. Medicine of acceptance of darkness as the fertile soil required for growth. Medicine for blooming wherever you find yourself. Medicine for trusting the process with reverence for the magic in all. What if ALL of YOU was on board with the light that you are? What if ALL of you was resonating with the frequency of abundance, peace, potential? That is the invitation in yoga...to merge mind, body, energy, emotion and source into union. This is where magic and miracles arise from. Creating Heaven on Earth in you to create heaven on earth around you. This is the path of Be a Beacon. BEcoming the light that you are. With love and light Rebecca
