Podcast premiere: Doing Gentle with an Edge

Podcast premiere: Doing Gentle with an Edge

April 8, 2019
/ / /

At long last, I got iTunes to accept my RSS feed of Doing Gentle with an Edge.

So. Now it’s here. My pod. My very own podcast. 

I’ve been on a few podcasts, but have never had my own. Until now. So I am so proud that I’ve gotten this far! Because this is me, shipping, to use the Seth Godin-term. Putting it out there for the world to hear. (And yes. It is scary. But this is the second of my brain children I’ve been birthing into the world this month, so hey, I am getting the hang of this. Each time, it gets a bit less scary, but always, always, the feeling of champagne bubbles coursing through my body is there!)

I’ve gotten a lot of help in the process.
A Google+ reader commented on a Doing Gentle blog post sometime in 2016, urging me to record it, because – she said – she just knew it would come across differently when read aloud, the beauty and rhythm of my texts.
Søren Lassen Andreasen has helped me record, edit and produce the episodes – and boy has he been patient with my nit-picking to get everything sounding as good as possible.
Olof Jennfors has written the pod soundtrack.
Anders Roos took the picture of me, that I’m using as the pod artwork at the moment.

I’ve described the show thus:
Learning how to do gentle towards yourself can be, for you, the key to loving living life. At least, that’s what doing gentle did to me, Helena Roth, once I understood that it was actually an option.

Imagine having turned 30+ before ever realizing it’s possible to be gentle with myself. From that moment in time, I’ve re-learned how to be in the world – both inside and outside of myself. Here I will be sharing the tools and tricks I’ve picked up along the way, hoping it will help you transform from a victim of the epidemic of harshness into a proud practitioner of doing gentle.

Will you listen?
(Please. Listen.
Let me know what you think, what you like/dislike.
Share it if you think it’s worth sharing, or I am worth supporting.)

2016 – my year to Ship!

January 3, 2016
/ / /

For the past few years I’ve set an intention for each upcoming year. Like turning a new leaf, blank, crisp, open to possibilities. Ready for me to fill it with just about anything.

2013 was about School development.
2014 I focused on Transformation.
2015 was my year of Expansion.

As I look back over these years, I can see my expansion. That is a word with a great deal of significance to me. It’s become a part of my life, on a daily basis. As I do my morning Headspace, I am reminded by each intake of breath of the importance of expansion. And each time I breathe out, I am reminded that in order to expand, some things have to go. Those that no longer serve me. That which I am done with. The memory of it, and the learnings, remain. But the thing or action or habit itself has passed its due date and it’s time to let it go.

2016 will be my year to Ship.2016

My Advent Calendar theme of #SethinLondon has certainly inspired me to set this intention, but it’s not been an active process to find it. I woke up, early in the wee morning hours on the 30th of December. And there it was. Ship. That’s what 2016 will be about.

Like being given a gift from the Universal Mind.

Ship it.

Shimmering in the horizon.
No specifics. There doesn’t have to be. It’s not the details of what I ship that is at hand here. It’s the habit of shipping. Of creating, and letting it out into the world. In a bang, loud and clear, so no one can escape knowing something big has just been released. Or very very gently. Like a whisper, a soft breeze, nudging your cheek, so faint, you can hardly tell there was a movement of the air, at all.

How I ship, is of lesser importance, than That I ship.
Can you see the difference? Do you understand why?

Welcome to I have previously published my writings at and there you will still be finding all new Swedish posts. But as of now, all writings in English will be published here. Welcome!
