Shiny Song #25

11 May

I’ve just returned from Mexico, where I taught two retreats.


This track was one of my favourite playlist additions…

Take it back or let me go
It’s better if I tell you so
I’ve hurt you once before and I will do it again

Everyone I know is gone
And I don’t even know myself
I’m saving up
To take a trip to Mexico
I heard it’s the place to go
I want to see the colours of another sky

Carry me home on your shoulders
Lower me on to my bed
Show me the night that I dreamed about before

Lover, you may cause me tears
Drag me through the best of years
You’ll never know any of the songs I wrote
Older than a year or two,
But I love you so

Oh, carry me home on your shoulders
Lower me on to my bed
Show me the night that I dreamed about before

Carry me home on your shoulders
Lower me on to my bed
Show me the night that I dreamed about before

Lover, you may cause me tears
Drag me through the best of years,
But I love you so

On Retreat in Mexico

Thailand Retreat: Love Explosion

19 Apr

I am overwhelmed…

I’m sitting in a cafe in Berkeley, California, thinking about the retreat we’ve just finished at The Sanctuary in Thailand.

The Sanctuary Beach
This group of humans blew me away with their willingness to dive deeply into the process, their love of dancing and their huge hearts.

This retreat taught me how much I need to trust myself: that when I follow my heart and my intuition, amazing things can happen.



I’m in tears reading the feedback forms:

Megan is such an inspiration. I love the way she teaches! She makes of yoga something modern because she’s gentle and warm but also so much fun! She really has a truly magical presence. I’m so grateful for having been able to join the retreat and just amazed how seven days can change the way you see/feel things for much more time!
Shiny Happy Healthy is now my own mantra!
I feel so thankful for Megan for sharing her happiness, her life lessons, and shininess!

– Noémie, Paris


Thank you to beautiful and shiny Megan for lighting up the way to an amazing new purchase on life. Words really cannot express how grateful I am to you for sharing your knowledge, spirit and intelligence with us. Your retreat is, without a doubt, one of the best things a person could give themselves. I cannot speak more highly of you and the Shiny Happy Healthy retreat experience; nor can I speak more highly of the amazing souls I shared my journey with.

With lots of love,
– Jenny, Melbourne

You can read more testimonials about the retreat and my workshops on the Praise page.

I just adored this space and process – and all of the super Shiny, Happy participants with their enormous smiles have meant I’ve had a dozen inquiries already about when the next one will be held! So, I’m super excited to announce that I will run another Thailand retreat this year!

From September 14th until the 20th, we’re going to infect The Sanctuary with our massive smiles and shiny behaviour.

Don’t miss out!

Welcome to Paradise…

18 Mar

After a whirlwind of flying and movement and running around Bangkok, I’ve arrived on the Bay of Love ahead of the next
Shiny Happy Healthy retreat.


It’s been a year since I was last here at the Sanctuary and it feels oh, so good to be back.


The water is crystal clear and I’m stuffing myself full of delicious salads and drinking loads of yummy, healthy smoothies. All in the name of research for our retreat menu, of course!

How To Find Cheap Flights to the Bay of Love

31 Oct

An oldie but a goodie…And it all still applies!
I’ll be posting information about ferries and trains soon, too…

Shiny, Happy, Healthy.

A few years ago, when I first started jetting around all the time, a frequent flyer friend of mine taught me a few little tricks to save on airfares. This can sometimes take longer than flying directly to where you want to go, but for me, it has been a great way to see more places on my transits and I’ve saved thousands of dollars in the process. 

You want to find the cheapest way to get to the other continent and then use local carriers to get around within that continent. 

Using Melbourne to Koh Samui for the retreat as the example, here’s how I do it: I use a flight search engine like, or to check first how much it costs to fly directly. 
Right now, Malaysia Airlines have flights from Melbourne for around $690 to Koh Samui. Usually, flying directly to Samui will cost at least…
