I often get asked to help young people use mindfulness techniques to help them deal with the stress of tests and exams so have put together a new workshop focusing on this. I have seen first hand how some simple tools can be incredibly effective at helping create calm and clarity to enable optimum performance and am so excited to be launching the first of these on Monday 21st March. Do email me for more details

MARCH 2016

I have been finishing Mindfulness courses for this years students at Kingston Grammar School KGS and it has been a great time to reflect on all the work that has taken place during the process. It is fantastic to be associated with a wonderful school that places such importance on the welfare of it's pupils. It is brilliant that more of our young people are having access to Mindfulness. Returning to a school setting has been a personal challenge for me but one I am so grateful to have undertaken.

Happiness is not a state we reach when some far off goal is achieved,

it is something which is inside of you.

Happiness cannot be lost or found,

but it can be tuned into.

upcoming events...

THIS Sunday Morning 3rd July: Open Air Morning Meditation, 9.30am - 10.30am; start your Sunday a wonderful way by joining me in Bushy Park's Woodland Gardens for this open drop-in session. Please arrive at around 9.15am so that we can be set up ready for a 9.30am first meditation. There is a car park at the Pheasentry Cafe, go through the gate by the cafe and I will be situated out on the green directly opposite the cafe. This session is open to all with basic mindfulness experience, so there will be slightly more guidance than the session the following night (see further down page), please feel free to bring along any interested friends or family. £10 drop in fee, it is really helpful if you let me know you can attend, but drop-ins also welcome on the day. 

Also Sunday 3rd July: I am part of Mojo Boost, a Wellness Day Event, 2pm-7.15pm At this event I will be doing a session on the central principles of mindfulness which serves as a great introduction or refresher, we will be meditating too and it will be wonderful to be followed by sound meditation from London based music producer Fabio Garces: ‘Sonic Enchantment’. This inspired and deeply moving live musical and multi-media experience merges old and new world technology. It is being held at 43 Hampton Court Avenue, East Molesey, KT8 0BG "Treat mind and body to the powerful combination of yoga, mindfulness and sound meditation… beat stress, rejuvenate and be inspired." Suitable for all levels of experience. (Yoga 2pm - Mindfulness 4pm - Sound meditation 6pm) Triple session advance tickets: £35 please contact directly for further information and to buy tickets 

Monday 4th July, Evening Garden Meditation, 8-9pm - a beautiful opportunity to meditate together in the garden of 43 Hampton Court Avenue, East Molesey, KT8 0BG.  The session is designed as a restorative deep meditation session, suitable for those who have attended a course with me or have some mindfulness/ meditation experience, £10 on the night. We will be exploring the interplay between our inner and outer worlds and how we deepen the meditative experience. Spaces in this location are limited so please let me know if you would like to come along. It is looking likely to be a warm evening, I will have a bell tent erected should we get any rain (It just survived Glastonbury, so I know it will certainly keep us dry in a shower!). 

'Leisure Live' Saturday 9th July: On Hersham Green, Elmbridge Borough Council have asked me to host a tent at their big event showcasing Leisure across the area. Throughout the day I will be doing free 15 minute taster sessions, Here's a link to Leisure Live Event The whole event is a free day out. Do come and say hi, I'll be in the bell tent again - it's a good opportunity for any friends or family that want to find out a bit more about mindfulness to have a brief go.  
Breath Workshop 18th July, Vine Hall 8-9pm. Improving our ability to breathe correctly, both in life and meditation, can be a key element to improving our health and wellbeing. This is something I have personally had problems with and have experienced first hand the enormous benefits improved breathwork can bring and am excited to be bringing you this special workshop 'learning to breathe'. This workshop is open to all, £10 drop-in cost.
