For many years I had decided that walking meditation wasn’t for me. I love walking but if I’m walking, I like to be walking TO somewhere and preferably at a very fast pace. I cannot handle walking slowly. I find it almost impossible so perhaps you could say I’m exactly the kind of person who […]
Happy Vesak to my Buddhist friends!
Whilst we’re experiencing this pandemic and trying to navigate the new reality it brings, I thought I’d share a Metta meditation with you. It’s a fantastic meditation for the current situation as it gives us a chance to connect with others and extend our love. It can give us a greater appreciation and sense of […]
As I move into week 4 of being at home, I find myself thinking about social connections and the communities that I’m a part of. I’m appreciating being part of these communities as we give and receive support, comfort, positivity and love. The last few weeks I’ve been transitioning into our new ‘normal’ as a […]

It’s children’s mental health week so I’ve decided to share a few meditations and exercises that are great for children. (All tried and tested by my motley crew!) Keep an eye out for posts throughout the week!
