Il tuo host
I have been meditating on a daily basis for decades. For sixteen years I ran a Wellbeing Centre and edited its magazine. I have taught evening classes in meditation which include basic de-stress exercises and elements of Mindfulness. I draw upon different traditions to facilitate a sense of wellbeing as well as my own book ('Draw up a Chair') published last year. I also enjoy using nourishing exercises from the Western/Eastern traditions and people like Ferrucci, Bloom, Dyer. Ideally, meditation follows the inbreath as well as the outbreath, symbolising the inner/outer life. We need both!

Dove ti troverai
Meditation will be in my beautiful 18th C old barn. It's a homely sitting room/country kitchen. I will provide refreshments and make you comfortable. Meditation may also be outside in the summerhouse (used for this purpose) and/or my healing garden with mature trees. I have two rooms available if you wish to stay and include this experience.
