- Thank you for stopping by.
- I hope you find the blog helpful.
- It mainly contains quotes and reflections on meditation practice but also contains some inputs from Psychology, Spirituality and different Wisdom traditions. In other words, the various ways that can be used to try and understand what leads to the development of happiness and a full life. It was started to offer support to those who have participated in mindfulness Courses and who continue to practice meditation but now includes everyone who seek each day to live in a more mindful manner. It has a simple purpose – to encourage the ongoing development of more conscious and reflective living.
I have over 40 years experience of meditation practice, firstly in Western traditions, including a 30 Day silent retreat in the Ignation tradition, and with teachers such as Anthony de Mello and Thomas Keating. In the past 13 years I have practiced also in Buddhist meditation, and competed retreats with teachers such as Ajahn Sucitto, Ajahn Amaro, Larry Rosenberg, Joseph Goldstein, Christine Feldman and Sharon Salzberg and in Mindfulness meditation, with trainings by Jon Kabat Zinn, Ph.D., Saki Santorelli, Melissa Blacker and Florence Meleo-Meyer, (Oasis Institute for Mindfulness-based Professional Education and Training, University of Massachusetts Medical School), supervision by Melissa Blacker, (Oasis Institute for Mindfulness-based Professional Education and Training), and workshops with Rick Hanson Ph.D and Paul Gilbert among others.
