I have been working in the field of personal development for more than 35 years. I hold an honours degree in psychology and my background is in psychology and therapy. I have been engaged in intensive practice and study of meditation and related practices for many years, towards increasing and expanding awareness and deepening my knowledge of myself and the work.
Whilst drawing on a variety of traditions, from both East and West, including sources from India and in particular the Satyananda tradition, my main influence has been the Teacher and Healer, Hilmar Schohauer, who I had the great privilege of working with for 18 years or so. Hilmar himself worked for many years with the Healer Bob Moore who established a thriving centre in Denmark and is well known for the work he did with hundreds of Doctors, Pychologists, therapists and other health care professionals, as well as those drawn to the work whilst on their own particular paths towards self knowledge and realisation. Bob worked with meditation and the energy system as a means to expanding awareness and knowledge of oneself and ones functioning in life and the world.
It has been said in numerous traditions that when you know yourself, you know everything, and this truth becomes more and more apparent as we work deeply with ourselves and our own experiences. For me this work has been a journey into greater and greater dimensions of self and within this a coming more fully into life and the many possibilities and potential therein.
I have been leading meditation groups and working with individuals since 1994. I am also a BWY trained yoga teacher and have been teaching yoga for more than 15 years.
I have over the years come to appreciate more and more the value of meditation and energy work as tremendous tools for personal healing,growth and development. My exploration of consciousness through meditation and the energy body is ongoing using and developing the practices I now teach widely.
