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 […]

This week I’ve decided to link to a previous meditation I’ve written about. The body scan is very well-known and widely used. It’s a simple but incredibly relaxing meditation that I think you’ll enjoy. It’s great at the end of the day to ease out the days stresses and any physical tension. Feel free to […]
