A tough old week… The Paradox of Mindfulness

I often talk about the Paradox of Mindfulness in different types of class settings and this last week, well I got to really experience it. The paradox being: You have to go through difficulty to test your resillience… So all the mindfulness/meditation gets put to the test when these types of situations arise. This week...

Awareness is the key…

This is an email I share with everyone that completes an Awareful course… I just wanted to share it with everyone.   A wonderful evening to you all,   As we finish our course together, I always reflect back on the course, what was covered, what wasn’t, a real wish that all of you achieve...

Only truth is truth

We spend so much time getting frustrated by who and why, but not from where within and how it can ease or cease… How these changing states can like Rumi says ‘violently sweep our house empty of its furniture’.   It is right there, that this is a changing state, it isn’t permanent. It is...

The reality of the ‘At Home Meditator’

I am always getting asked about my own practise. I wanted to offer some thoughts and insight into its reality. The reality of the ‘At Home Meditator’ Questions like, what am I doing, how long, where, when…. The reality of being a father is that I live in a household with 2 kids and a big...

We dont so often hear, “I had depression for the last 12 years and this...

As Mental Health Awareness Month draws to a close….

A bit of reflective time that I wanted to share as Mental Health Awareness Month draws to a close…. It was just incredible to see how many companies are realising the importance of mental health. It has been a busy old Mental Health Awareness month for us which is amazing, not for the business, but for...

We are one mind, one heart, one race, many opportunities…

We are one mind, one heart, one race, many opportunities… We do not need to search for some form of identity to make you, you… You are… Direction is not you, your path is not you… We can begin to rest confidently in the absence of direction, knowing each step is the longest path that...

A bit of reflection…

A bit of reflection I wanted to share this morning… We get so lost in ‘meditating’… We don’t meditate to fix ourselves, we arent striving to improve ourselves, it isn’t even really for redemption; it is an opportunity for exploration, curiosity, kindness and a willingness to build a relationship with that which touches our soul…...
