where philosophy and psychology meet technology ..

Linda Parkinson-Hardman

Hi, I’m Linda and I’m the owner (or is it lessee?) of this blog and I love to stop and natter over a cup of tea, so why don’t you join me? That’s it, settle down with your favourite afternoon tipple and let’s start a journey into empowerment.

I’m fascinated by the intersection between psychology, philosophy, creativity, spirituality and technology. I write and blog about all these topics in one form or another. I’m a digital intelligence coach and consultant, writer and author who spends her time empowering individuals and companies take control of their happiness, well-being, success and technology. Oh, and I love to know what makes people tick.

So why not join me for a while and let’s share a part of each other’s life journey for a while.

Setting yourself free and finding your voice

The period between Christmas and New Year is an odd hinterland of non-doing for me. The celebrations of Christmas pause and wait until the celebrations of New Year begin. That space between one year and the next is when I…

Happy new year 2022

Darling Hilde Looking back, I knew that 2021 was going to be a corker of a year. It just felt ‘right’ somehow. And after all the trouble we’d had during 2020, it certainly needed to earn its keep.
