Supporting Team YOU and The NHS Free Resources

My dear dog Flynn expressing clearly how he feels about
getting out for just one walk a day! C’mon!

Hello dear friends,
I do hope you are well and that you have been able to adapt to this fresh way of being.

I personally have moved through a range of responses over the last few weeks and now am settling into how things are. I do miss sharing space with folks and “filling my hug tanks” as my son Matthew would say. But now  I’m enjoying connection via online routes. It’s all new to me and perhaps for you too. So… I feel a coming together as we all embrace awkward!

I’m keen to continue to share my practices so…… let’s give it a go.

Online offerings
Free Group Sessions

  • A regular Weekly TRE Shake Group via Zoom -*For existing shakers

 Monday’s 11.30 am and 3.00 pm

 Tuesday’s 2.30 pm.

Sessions last 90 minutes includes: Settle – Connect – Awaken Tremors – Relax

*This is for those who have either attended one of my TRE or Neurogenic Yoga Workshops or have had a 1:1 TRE session with me and have practiced shaking at home. 

Please email if you’d like to join me. Including please in your email a little on your TRE shaking practice. I need to know particularly how your TRE practice is for you and that you can self regulate. I will send guidance regarding the session to those wishing to take part.

  • A weekly recorded Yoga Class and/ or Yoga Nidra guided relaxation. Please email me if you would like me to share this with you. Here’s one I prepared earlier ( very Blue Peter!)

  • Recorded Guided Meditation. Please email me if you’d like me to share this with you.

Here’s a meditation I recorded recently.

These group offerings are FREE as I’m very aware that many of you are struggling with reduced or no income at all.  I’d like to share this with everyone, so no one is left out. However if you feel moved to offer a financial exchange a suggested donation is £5, but please only offer a donation if you are able to without any financial difficulty.

I would also like to offer  FREE 1:1 or Group sessions to Nurses and Doctors as a BIG thank you for all that you are doing for us. These practices include TRE, Guided Relaxation, Meditation, and grounding practices to ease out of overwhelm. I know that perhaps right now all you want to do is rest. But know that this is available to you in the future too…when the time feels right.

xxxxx We are so grateful to you xxxxx

  • If you know anyone on the NHS Front Line that you feel might benefit from this, please feel free to pass on my details.

One to One & One to Two Online sessions

  • For those new to TRE (Tension and Trauma Release exercises), Meditation or  EFT Emotional Freedom Technique – Tapping) I can introduce you to this via Skype or Zoom.This can be in a 1:1 or 1:2 setting. (so you might like to try this with a friend). These sessions have my regular 1:1 Charge.

Please keep well and safe.
With love to you.

Attitude

Attitude

The longer I live, the more I realise the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude to me, is more important than facts.

It is more important than the past,

than education,

than money,

than circumstances,

than failure,

than successes,

than what other people think or say or do.

Its more important than parents, giftedness,or skill.

It will make or break a company, church or home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change our past..

We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.

We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

I am convinced that life is ten percent what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it.

And so it is with you….We are in charge of our attitudes.

What happens when we stop worrying

When you decide to stop worrying what people think.

Do you know what happens when we stop worrying about what other people might think of you?

You get to dance.

You get to sing.

You get to laugh loudly, paint,write and create.

You get to be yourself.

And you know what?

Some people won’t like you.

Some will laugh and make a point of your flaws

but it won’t bother you all that much!

Shine Brightly

Shine Brightly

Some people are going to reject you,

simply because you shine too bright for them,

And that’s okay. Keep shining.

The love that saves us is not a love that might come to us in the future,

but rather the love that we can give to whomever is around us right

now.

Embracing Silence

Embracing Silence

I don’t have to talk

I don’t have to say something meaningful

I don’t have to try

I can just feel kind and gentle

inside and out

and in all the space around me

Hopefully it’s contagious

a bug I can pass on

All breathing in kindness

and breathing out kindness

carrying kindness woven into our clothing

moving through our hair

hitching a lift in our cells

riding through our vessels

this aura of gentleness and peace

speaks and reassures

without words or razmataz

Breathe in this gentle healer

inhale its gift

..and pass it on.
