I am a mindfulness and movement teacher with decades of experience training and supervising mindfulness teachers: www.livingmindfulness.net.
Trained as a yoga teacher, I highly value the inclusion of mindful movement on any retreat and in daily life, drawing on a large palette of methods, including yoga, Feldenkrais Method and chi-kung. My classes and retreats are characterised by a warm and open atmosphere and a spirit of inquiry, free of any dogma.
For 5 years I lived and worked in a residential Buddhist retreat centre for women in Shropshire and in 1992 I became a member of the Western Buddhist Order (when I received my Buddhist name). I am a certified transformational coach and offer 1-2-1 mindful coaching.
My first degree is in music and movement and in 2007 was awarded a practice- based PhD in Creative Arts at Dartington College, Devon. The title of my thesis was Gestures towards Emptiness - an exploration of ritual with reference to Buddhist tradition and innovation and it is available online. It includes many examples of my artwork.
