Live session held on 22nd May 2020. Photo: Two more rescue cats from Foal Farm, Kent adopted by my dear friend living down the road. I am their main cat sitter when she is away, hence the developing of a very special relationship with me. They are 15 year old siblings who have the strangest meows in the world and are inseparable as they are adorable.
Live Practice held on 21.05.2020. Photo: These were photos taken recently during the Lockdown, of Theatres, Music Halls and Galleries with their doors closed. Even with their doors closed, I saw great beauty in their form, for what they seemed to represent at this time – ideas, beauty and so much more in the form of the hope we all seek.
Live Practice held on the 20.5.2020. Photos: One of my Gurus, this is the cat that changed a strong belief and fear of mine, carried from childhood- having feared and disliked cats most of my life thanks to my upbringing, she literally converted me into a cat lover overnight. She came to me as a rescue kitten and completely changed everything I had previously believed about cats. Experiences are always changing our beliefs, and mindfulness is about noticing these experiences, no matter how subtle they may be. After this, I wondered what other beliefs I had that may not necessarily have been true. You will meet our other two rescue cats in this video (just photos though) too. The screen goes blank and black at one point, and even though that was just careless editing, just try pretending that it’s a close up of one of them, since they are all black (LOL)
Live Practice held on 18.05.2020. Photo: My bike ride through Central London a few days ago took me through some of my favourite (now closed) galleries. The Tate Modern’s architecture alone can sometimes be very satisfying even when its doors are closed.
Live Practice on 14.5.2020. Photo: My favorite bookshop in London, Watkins Books, founded in 1897 by John Watkins (friend of Madame Blavatsky who co-founded the Theosophical Society) and moved to its current location at 21 Cecil Court in 1901. Photographs on this YouTube Audio alternate between this shop front and the now silent Cecil Court lane. A shop worthy of a pilgrimage. As photographed on a recent cycle ride through the quiet streets of London
Live Practice Session held on 13.5.2020: A Body Scan with Visualisation. Photo: A weekend cycle ride through Regents Street in London, where there was more stillness than usual.
Live session held on 12.5.2020. Photo: Sunset at Lake Windermere, Cumbria. I took a short walk one evening to the shores of the Lake and understood why Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth and John Ruskin loved this place so much and drew inspiration from it.
Live session held on 11th May 2020. Photograph: Spring Blooms at Isabella Plantation, Richmond Park. I’ll never forget the first time I turned a corner and found this view, carefully tucked away deep within this magical, 190 year old “plantation” in South West London
Live Session held on 5th May 2020. Photo: Stillness on a Lake in Rotterdam

Meditation Practice for 7th May 2020. Photo: A moment of stillness as I walked through one of my favourite places on earth, Beckenham Place Park, near my home in South London.

Please click here to either listen or download some of my meditations and reflections as Podcasts. Some of them were recorded specifically as podcasts while others were recorded during actual meditation sessions held with my fellow practitioners. I do hope you will somehow get a glimpse into what some of us were experiencing during these sessions. Please do enjoy and subscribe, whether to the Podcasts or YouYube channel so that you will be notified when new recordings are added. Some of the YouTube recordings may not be available yet as Podcasts and vise-versa. The most recent meditations will be displayed on this page as YouTube audios. Thank you.

The same guided meditations and reflections are also available through the YouTube link here

One teacher I can never recommend enough is Eckhart Tolle. You would have noticed me listing a few of his books and talks under the “Recommended Reading” page of this website. His writings and speeches have very little to do with increasing your knowledge on this subject, avoiding that pitfall taken by many where meditation and alignment becomes a purely mental and intellectual exercise. This is however, for good reason called a “Practice” because it needs to be experienced through the alignment between our words, thoughts, and actions. And that is exactly what meditations are laboratories where we can practice this alignment under, what is usually a fairly controlled environment so that we can then take it out into the worlds we live, work, love and do so much more in. The difference between thinking intellectually about meditation and actually practicing meditation is as different as day and night, and perhaps a little bit like attempting to understand what the most sublime chocolate cheesecake tastes like through books and words, but without ever actually tasting it.

Tolle does indicate his sense of Being at one with his words, illustrating this wonderfully, through his own example – the way in which he lives his life, his words, which you begin to sense are in alignment with his life and his thoughts too. Here is a talk he recently gave, following the recent events pertaining to the Coronavirus. It is about 45 minutes long, but definitely worth a listen:
Tolle on the Virus and so much more.

Dr Wayne Dyer was a Teacher in every sense of the word, from college lecturer to spiritual teacher to many millions of people around the world. Here is a beautiful compilation of his words, in no particular order but deeply soothing in the way that it seems to resonate deeply with me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have and will continue to.

Reflections by the late Dr. Wayne Dyer.

There are of course a number of excellent guided meditations out there that I would also recommend. Its difficult to recommend a single one only because we are all unique and different and there is a guided meditation out there to suit every one of us, and at different parts of our journeys.

If you find yourself constantly interrupted by the momentum of your mind (the constant chatter of the mind), Binaural beats can be very helpful. Everyone from monks to scientists are now using them to aid in their meditations. Binaural beats are quite scientific and would need to have been produced carefully in a controlled setting by those who understand the science behind them. Therefore, in order to properly benefit from them, I would recommend using any of the materials created by the team I have had personal experience (but with whom I have no professional connections) with, at Sacred Acoustics. There are number of free downloads available there and more should you wish to purchase, including guided meditations combining voices with the Binaural beats.

And then, of course, there are the guided meditations available from Jon Kabat-Zinn, the medical physician who is partially responsible for the whole Mindfulness movement in the West, having translated the Zen and Vipassana Buddhist tools into its current secular form. I cannot recommend his meditations enough.
