I have a personal background in Yoga and Zen meditation with training in delivery of both. I have what could be best described as an eclectic approach to the spiritual wisdom traditions and love to weave and play with many different practices and ways. The Sufi way of a spiritual lock smith that fashions the key to fit whatever lock is presented, resonates with me deeply and I do my best to meet people where they are. I met Brian whilst facilitating a meditation space at a festival in Dorset from which he invited me to come and share at the Freezone retreats. Its been a great privilege and a lot of fun being with the Freezone tribe ever since.
I do my best to bring my own experiences from my practice and find ways to share what I hope is of use. How best to relax and relax consciously? How much effort should it take to be ourselves? How about we put everything down just for a moment; our efforting, our opinions, our assumptions, our identities and see if when all the things we take ourselves to be, or associate with, aren’t there are we still present? This feels like the invitation to become who we truly are so that finding ways, and being open to new ways, of self discovery can be revealed to us.
With my partner Lizzy we play with these different body, breath and mind practices to help people relax and find a better relationship to themselves and as a consequence with each other. We’ve developed a vibro-acoustic platform called Ombed as another reliable way to cultivate relaxed awareness. The Ombed delivers vibration and sound directly to the body offering a pleasant draw for the attention down into the body which softens and relaxes. When the body relaxes so does the mind. We are passionate about the power of relaxation so our invitation is to rediscover the art of relaxation and integrate that way into our lives.
