Meditation, Mindfulness and Compassion Retreats

The greatest gift you can give the world
is your own peacefulness and happiness.

(Desmond, 2016)

I have been practicing meditation and mindfulness since 2004. I regularly undertake mediation and mindfulness training and go on retreats to support my personal and professional practice. My training and teaching has taken me across the UK, Europe, the United States and Asia. I offer retreats at The Retreat Holistic Center in mid-Essex, across East Anglia and beyond.
