I Met Britannia – Angel of Britain

Two days after the Brexit Referendum on 23 June 2016 I met Britannia, Angel of Britain. She came to me in a dream and then a meditation.

I upset a Psychotherapist – Polyvagal Theory and Molecules of Emotion

Like many folk I hugely benefit from talk therapy. It helps me understand who I am. It clarifies how I navigate my relationships and my work. But for mental and emotional pain, I benefit more from body-oriented therapies — becoming aware of the actual physical sensations of hurt and tension, and working directly with my body to shift them . . .  More

Meditation Masterclass — Handbook for Teachers and Practitioners

Meditation Masterclass is my latest educational resource to be published by the Spiritual Companions Trust. It is a radical  person-centred approach to meditation that is relevant to both beginners and experienced practitioners.

Meditation Masterclass honours the essential jewels of all meditation traditions. It encourages people to explore with complete freedom all the expansive dimensions of meditation.  And, of course, all of this is hugely beneficial for our physical health and wellbeing. For more information and to purchase

How Meditation Was Invented

Having taught meditation for decades, I want to reassure people that meditation is a natural human behaviour. All you need is an instinct be quiet and calm.  

So why are there all these competing meditation traditions and schools? Here are three short stories that illustrate how meditation might have been invented . . . More

Mainstream Statements that Include Spirituality

People who are engaged or interested in spirituality often think that mainstream thinking is hostile to spirituality. But do some research and you will be surprised by the number of authoritative bodies that publicly assert the value of spirituality. They may not be clear on how to put spirituality into action, but they have public statements about spirituality and good practice. More

Self-Care for Health Professionals

Visiting my GP a little while ago he began talking with me about his own health. This was not unusual as we had known each other for twenty years and he had read my self-help book The Endorphin Effect. He was committed to a holistic approach and believed that good medicine enabled patients into self-care.

‘If only I had practised what I preach,’ he said wryly, ‘I would have caught my own condition much earlier and probably avoided surgery. ’ More

BBC Radio 2 ‘Good Morning Sunday’ Reflective Moment

This is the text of the Reflective Moment broadcast on 8th October

Your Daily Bath in Paradise – Earth and Fire

What kind of spiritual education do children deserve? Or to put it another way what would you have liked when you were a child?

This question was triggered for me when I recently helped develop a personal and social health education programme (PSHE) for a large secondary school. I started to think about what I had received and not received from my parents and schooling. There were some good things but there was also an awful gap.
