I teach meditative practices to help people connect to their inner resources of steadiness, clarity, strength and joy.
My own meditation journey began over a decade ago, in an attempt to find some space from an incessantly busy mind.
Since then, meditation has grown to play many different roles in my life. For me, meditation now plays many overlapping and interdependent roles: mental hygiene, self-therapy, spiritual practice, inquiry into the nature of experience, and a way to cultivate presence and compassion.
I aim to teach meditation in ways that reflect the diversity of ways of practicing and the diversity of personalities of meditators, while honouring the core principle of the path of meditation - to be here to experience life more fully and more freely.
I am inspired by many contemplative traditions and approaches - Buddhism (in several flavours, but particularly Insight Meditation/Vipassana), contemporary Mindfulness, and the Non-dual and Yogic traditions.
I lead retreats and courses online and in Devon, and I also offer one-to-one guidance for your meditation practice.
