Connecting mind, body, and spirit through ancient wisdom, neuroscience, and nature. .
My Mission & Philosophy
I have practiced mindfulness since 2000, teaching and leading retreats across Ireland, in Wales, Germany and USA. I have been lucky enough to study with leading teachers from both Western and Eastern Wisdom traditions, as well as having a full immersion into the neuroscience underpinning current secular mindfulness practice. My work now is a distillation of these 20 plus years and it is simple, and underpinned by my three core beliefs:
1) Like the Dali Lama, my religion is kindness.
2) The current wave of interest in forest bathing is a reminder of what we know already – nature heals.
3) Neuroscience allows us to use short mindfulness practises to live happier and less stressed lives
TRY ONE OF MY GUIDED MEDITATIONS
I have created a series of guided meditations with the intention of alleviating stress and anxiety, whilst also helping to give you the tools to navigate the self through difficult times of life.

‘Dee is working with the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland (MS Ireland) in the role of external supervisor to MS Ireland Case Work Staff. We have had a very positive experience with Dee who demonstrates a great capacity to create a space where case worker can reflect on their practice and explore their role within this often complex work. Dee’s style of reflective listening promotes an atmosphere where the MS Ireland case workers can develop strategies that supports solutions which in turn contributes to good outcomes for people with Multiple Sclerosis and family members. We would have hesitation in recommending Dee as a supervisor.’

During the session, I listen as you share. I may occasionally question, challenge, or support you as appropriate. Ultimately, you will own whatever insights are uncovered, as well as whatever action you might take. We end the session with a short meditation, thanking Wisdom for the sacred space and the support, and asking for continued guidance and blessings in your life.
