The power of micro changes

One of the recurring themes I hear from guests on my Finding Space retreat is that they don’t have time to make changes in their everyday lives! And that’s the challenge facing most of us.

The Art of Contemplation

As I walk along the dunes to it,…

Unsetting My Mind

This is a story about stones. One gratitude stone starts the tale. I gathered it from a Norfolk beach the day I ran away from London in March 2020. London locked down and I fled in a van. Although I drove the van forwards, I could see no way of moving forward in my life. I was driving away from…

Oxygenating Your Business Brain

"Focussed, sharp, clear thinking, creative." What am I describing? A successful entrepreneur? Correct - also the benefits of a well oxygenated brain. Your most complex organ, the powerhouse of your nervous system, the brain consumes 20% of the body’s oxygen supply. Limit that supply and life quickly becomes unfocussed and foggy.

Why I love sceptics

“What do you do?” people ask. “Put simply, I teach people to breathe better and stress less,” comes my reply. “Oh!” go the sceptics confidently, “Surely we all know how to breathe!” My challenge when I deliver a breathing workshop is that the room is mostly full of sceptics.

Silencing your inner critic

Silencing your inner critic  How polished and wily are our inner critics? They are the public speakers we all wish we could be. Confident, charismatic, convincing. Their audience sits there in stunned silence - not a heckler in hearing. There’s no Q&A. There’s no discussion. They are never booed off the stage. Even though we’ve heard their opinion before, we…
