Mindfulness and Meditation is fast becoming the healthy and manageable way to combat many of the stresses and strains of everyday life. Many people today complain of being stressed out by work and difficult relationships. They are over anxious, lacking in vibrancy and often over whelmed by the challenges of life.
The ancient discipline of Meditation and Mindfulness practice has shown to have a remarkable effect in reducing stress; opening us up to joy and wisdom and improving our relationship with ourselves and others. Many health practitioners are turning to Meditation and Mindfulness practice instead of the usual dependency on drugs to reduce stress and anxiety.
A daily practice, building up to 20 minutes of meditation a day, for 8 weeks will make a significant difference. And the great thing is, with a little guidance and support, anyone can do it. Please take the time to browse this site and decide for yourself if meditation and mindfulness is for you.

Holland House and Matara Silent Meditation Retreat Days
Thanks to Jean Pinero for some of these wonderful photos of the retreat at Holland House in May 2016
Our retreat days for 2017 are now over and we had over 50 people attending, many of them coming more than once and many returners from previous years. It was lovely to see familiar faces as well as intrigued newcomers! It was also lovely for Claire and I to observe how people relaxed and unfolded over the day - leaving the venues looking lighter and refreshed.
We will be busy in the New Year planning further day retreats so please check back then if you are interested in coming along.
Claire Seabrook, a craniosacral therapist, has been on the Holland House Retreats and is now running them with me. She wrote a beautiful blog talking about why retreats are so good for the soul. Find the link here.

"You should sit in meditation for 20 mins a day, unless you're too busy; then you should sit for an hour" Old Zen saying.
