I have practiced mindfulness since the late eighties, 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 25 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
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.
