Uncover your inner path

At the end of the day. February 2021

Hi everyone, Isn’t wonderful that Spring has finally arrived and there is now a notable stretch in the evenings! Evenings are a wonderful time to catalogue the events of the day without distraction, to revel in gentle solitude or silence, to end the day in serenity, and to commune with your inner self. For human beings and other living things that tend to be most active in daylight, evenings can be less hectic and more relaxing. A simple stroll through the realms of dusk and darkness can show you two different worlds: one winding down and one just coming to… READ MORE

Expression is key.

Hi everyone, I hope this letter finds you well and despite the restrictions you are manging to get out for some form of exercise and fresh air. Perhaps after watching the videos you are becoming more aware of your thoughts and how limiting our interaction with social media and other news stories is as important for our overall health and well-being. Unfortunately, we can’t avoid some of the stories we are hearing at the moment of personal suffering and loss due to this pandemic. When we compare our situations to those who may be suffering at the moment it is… READ MORE

The Heart of the Matter

Hi everyone, Hopefully you all got a chance to watch the videos I posted up last week and if you didn’t might I suggest you do so before you watch these next two as they run in sequence. As I explained in my letter to you last week, these videos have been taken from the archive on my website. So, while they are not current their message is still relevant today perhaps even more so. And if you have seen them before I still urge you to watch them as sometimes when we are hearing or seeing something for the… READ MORE

Edits and reruns January 2021

Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed your Christmas even if it was a quieter one. Christmas can be a nostalgic time steeped in traditions bringing with it a welcomed familiarity, comfort even. This call to home and hibernation is further encouraged through the media even the Christmas cards we get, by the use of such imaginary as blazing log fires, twinkling lights on the tree and snow scenes. For so many Christmas is about spending time with family and catching up with old friends. Many travel long distances even across time zones to be at home with their loved ones… READ MORE

Staying connected December 2020

  Hi All, As I am writing this, I am very aware that some of you may not be able to spend Christmas with your loved ones this year which is very difficult on so many levels. As humans we are all born hard-wired to want to seek and find meaningful relationships with others, especially at a time like Christmas. Connection is an essential part of our overall health and well-being. Ironically, in this time of connected media and devices, loneliness has reached an all-time high. It is common for us to feel lonely or alone, especially as our lives… READ MORE

Accepting what is November 2020

Hi All, I hope this letter finds you well and safe as we are thrust into yet another level of restrictions. It is only natural at times like this that feelings of frustration, fear and even anger can arise within us so welcome them all, don’t push them down. When we repress such feelings, they don’t go away instead they get buried deep within us and can either come out at an inappropriate time or worse they fester and can lead to depression or disease. If on the other hand we allow ourselves to be fully human, honouring all the… READ MORE

September 2020 Meditation Classes

Dear All, I hope you all got a chance to enjoy some memorable moments this Summer and all the sweeter as restrictions to our movements were lifted. I am sure many of you got a chance to enjoy a staycation and to truly appreciate the beautiful country we are fortunate enough to live in. Even if the weather is unpredictable, we all hope the sun is going to shine!! Hope, or the desire for something to come to fruition, is one of the most inspiring states of mind. It’s easy to think that hope is simply naïve or childlike, but,… READ MORE

Surrender to what is June 2020

, Hi everyone, I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and well as we navigate this new way of being together. One of the things this pandemic has taken away from us is the notion of certainty. Yet, if we think about that for a moment was our future ever certain? No, is the answer but there were certain things we relied on that kept a sense of normality, a sense of control so to speak…. like our children being able to go to school or college, being able to congregate at an event like a concert… READ MORE
