Bare Foot and Happy


I spent Thursday to Monday mostly without shoes on. No i wasn’t housebound or ill.
I was camping at the conscious tribal gathering in a field in Wales. And no, it wasn’t sunny, the weather was mixed with large amounts of rain.
I enjoy being bare footed, it’s my natural way of being, on grass my shoes come off, at home they are off the moment i enter, i even run my workshops on a daily basis without shoes on.
But at last i have a place where others join me. ..

I am a Red Cosmic Dragon 

Well who would have thought that! 

I have learnt many things today at conscious camp.  I started the day on a journey to find my animal guides, I travelled through a tree and into the centre of the earth. .. where I found my crocodile and lion on a river bank waiting for me.

I then had a bath with gongs, and tried but failed to read mine and other people’s auras.

All was redeemed at the end of the day
 when I found out according to mayan calenders I am a red cosmic dragon 

Crying With Laughter 

When I laugh, sometimes I can’t stop. I literally cry with laughter. Last night was one of those occasions. 

I run weekly mindfulness workshops, these may not appear to be places where one cries with laughter often but in my sessions this does seem to happen quite frequently.  

It’s a lovely group who have bonded over the last couple of years and one of last night’s activities was to draw stick person of yourself and then pass it around the group so other members can add to it qualities / things about you that have been missed.  

Saying that the resulting image of oneself that was returned to the person who originally drew it was 

funny is an understatement, hilarious is still being reserved,  tears were running down my face from laughter for possibly the next twenty minutes. 

30 days to change your life! 

A year ago today I launched my first ever book. ..yup get me 😉

It had the catchy title of,” 30 days to change your life. ” OK, it’s not going to set the world on fire and if I was a teacher I would probably give it a grade of, “could do better” or “lacks personality ”

But I still did it…the second book, third book, fourth book. …I will be better 👍

If there is a little bit of you that wants to check out my ,”could do better book” it’s still available on Kindle for an amazing 99p and here’s the link 

Summer

It feels like summer is here, long warm days.  Temperature in the mid twenties. 

In the UK, we don’t have many days like this, so on days like this when walking my dog, 50 years worth of  warm summer days memories come flooding back.

The summer of 76 when I was 10 years  old. .it was our heatwave, day after day of hot sun. 

When my children were little fun summer holidays, exploring unknown places 

Summer memories are precious 

Wild Garlic and Strawberries


I run mindfulness groups and yesterday we took the group to the lovely Moseley Park. 

I bought along with me some food for mindful eating, fresh wild garlic and strawberries.  One of the group accidently ate both at the same time. …Guess what it worked.  The two flavours seemed to compliment each other perfectly.  Try them yourselves. ..we may be on to a new healthy food craze have 

Young and Old

I deliver mindfulness sessions for the alzheimers society amongst other things.  When I approached the room, I did a double take. ..the was a table with a handful of children on it in their school uniforms.  On closer inspection, the tables further from the door had familiar faces of staff I recognise and many members of the drop in.

Yes, some children from the local school had come along with a staff member to learn about the charity and they would be taking part in the session.  I was a little apprehensive at first, but it was a breath of fresh air having them join the elderly members of the group.  Young and old sharing life experiences and chuckling together
