“By teaching others you will learn yourself.”

George Ivanovich Gurdjieff



'being mindful' for me is about:

•  learning integrity and acceptance, being true to myself, embracing all I am, lovely traits and flaws alike.
•  developing my awareness of the 'here and now', letting each moment be the precious gift it is intended to be.
•  mastering the courage to discover what is right through deep looking, allowing wisdom and knowledge to arise in complete simplicity.
•  cultivating joy and happiness and sharing it all around me.
•  uncovering compassion, starting by being kind to myself and extending loving kindness to others.


... and if you'd like to know more about me ...


I hold a deep interest in holistic healing, all things medical and the implementation of a common sense approach to the daily practice of family health and well-being. I first studied the art of medicine, moved to and around the US and concentrated on raising four children with my husband Mike. For ten years the family has lived in London, and as the children grew older and left to fulfil their own dreams, I returned to my original love for healing in all its forms. Currently I split my time between London and Luanda, Angola and welcome all opportunities to share my passion in both places.


my inspiration comes from many sources in no particular order

  • ongoing Inner Work exploration and meditation practice with Alexander Filmer-Lorch, 
  • advaita philosophy, Sanskrit, Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads weekly study with Dr Stephen Thompson
  • mindfulness practice in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh
  • sound healing and chanting with Jill Purce, Stewart Pearce, Chloe Goodchild, Simon Heather, Githa Ben-David and Samantha Kazarinov-Hawk
  • family constellations and ancestry healing wtih Jill Purce, Anu Azrael, Illi Adato and Yishai Gaster
  • ongoing Toledano Kabbalah study with Z'ev ben Shimon Halevi (Warren Kenton)
  • kabbalah of light imagery study with Dr Catherine Shainberg and Irene Viglia Atton
  • nutrition, general health and herbal wisdom with Susanne Kaiser
  • mantra healing and phowa with Dr Nida Chenagtsang
  • the way of the sacred woman with Dr Christine Page
  • many life experiences and everyday teachers: my children, family, friends, students and life situations.

If you are curious about our UPCOMING ACTIVITIES AND COURSES,







The first thing you discover is

a kind of emptiness,

a silence,

a presence which doesn't seem to have content to it,

like looking up at a limitless sky. 


That boundary-less place

inside you

is your own consciousness,

your awareness. 


When you relax into it,

you realize that it's also full -

it is everything. 


You realize this presence is

what you really are: Love.


Arjuna Ardagh




For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.

T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding
