Mindfulness is an ability to see more clearly what is happening in the present moment, and, with an attitude of accepting the way it is, to respond both skilfully and appropriately.
With this quality of attention, we can better understand our own concerns and anxieties and feel more alive to the many situations which life presents.

This is a unique retreat offering life changing skills

for your work and personal life,

with an expert that has applied

and tested mindfulness realistically in daily life.

My personal experience using Mindfulness with a complex situtaion.

Shortly after leaving the monastery I converted a basement to a flat for my London base. This conversion went horrible wrong, it left us with raw sewage in the basement, mould and a battle with Thames water, and an insurance bill that will probably come to over 200,000.

When the insurance adviser first came on site we were told that because we had been persistent, calm and fair, we had probably saved ourselves three years work.

Not only did my mindfulness/trauma training come in useful it allowed me to deal with complexity and uncertainty,  liaising with the all different people involved.

I was moved into temporary accommodation for eight months, the house was condemned as toxic and everything, and I mean everything needed to be cleaned or disposed of.

My mindfulness practice helped me in finding the right contractors and project manager. I did this by investing a considerable amount of money in the initial in investigation, as well as making sure they where eco-friendly. I had suffered from black mould poising and did a huge amount of research on finding the best way to heal myself and why I got I'll in the first place. I found that this is sometimes called sick building syndrome.

After a year of working on this project nearly full time, I now have a lot of experience working with a complex situation and difficult communications. I had to deal with many contractors, insurance claims, toxic buildings as well making the necessary changes in lifestyle to recover from all of this.

Organizations have I worked with


What have I done?

I found the retreat to be engaging, enlightening, eye-opening and very helpful. I've taken a lot from it. It helped highlight to me the power of the body and mind, and the important connection between the two as a unified whole. I've often found meditation approached from a purely psychological perspective and to have the physical elements magnified has really helped me become more mindful, and helped me to understand mindfulness on a more practical level. The day has given me a number of tools that I've taken into my daily life to help me understand my mind and my body better, and start on a journey that will hopefully lead to a more peaceful life.
