Next week, I’ll be marching into a new decade. My celebratory plans included sunshine holidays and maybe a trip to a yummy restaurant. But when “man makes plans…” and all that.
My mother asked me for my birthday gift wish list. To be honest, all I wanted was to see family, spend time with friends and leave the country 😀
So don’t worry about gifts, let’s do something worthwhile instead. To help vulnerable children is what resonates with me most right now. And you can’t do something good for someone without feeling good yourself.
If you feel inspired, please join me in donating. But absolutely no pressure!
I set the goal for €400, which seems like a lot but let’s make miracles during this time ♥ (I’ve since moved the goalposts to €500 and we’re very nearly there!)
Thank you in advance AND I’ll be giving a free 30-minute meditation class via Zoom on Wednesday 3rd June at 8pm IST for anyone who’s donated and fancies chilling out for half an hour with an experienced meditation teacher who’s just about to hit 40.
Here are the deets:

I would recommend that you find a comfortable, quiet space where you won’t be disturbed.
You may like to sit and/or lie down (have a blanket handy in this case).
Headphones could be helpful but are not compulsory.
For a full experience, you may like to light a candle/incense.
I’m excited for this!
I’m really looking forward to hosting this course. It’s definitely a time for being present, meditating, breathing and learning some new tools & tips to alleviate fear & anxiety and to cultivate more calm, peace, happiness & fun in our lives. And we can do this from the comfort of our own homes!
This six-week Mindfulness & Positive Living course will be a relaxing haven amongst all the current global craziness.
During each one-hour session, you will practice mindulness & meditate, do some breathwork & gentle movement/stretching, as well as learn tools & tips to alleviate anxiety and create calm in your life.
Find a quiet space (headphones could be helpful but not essential), a comfortable seat AND somewhere to lie down (also not essential but could be lovely – have a blanket handy in that case), as well as a pen & journal. Use some incense or essential oils and/or light a candle for optimal relaxation.
The course runs Wednesdays 8-9PM from 22nd April until 27th May 2020 via Zoom.

One of the favourite strands of my work is Life Coaching sessions. I love how present it makes me as I sit with my clients.
Life Coaching is a 1:1 talk therapy, which focuses on what’s going on for the client in the present moment and how they wish to move forwards in their lives. It is a completely non-judgmental process.
The Life Coach facilitates the client to gain fresh perspectives by listening empathically, reflecting back to the client and using powerful questions. This aids the client to gain clarity, release blocks and suffering, and set goals.
The Life Coach sees the client’s potential and helps them to gain insights and start living a life of more contentment, peace, self-love, and confidence.
I work with clients via Skype and Zoom.
Please contact me if you would like to work with me.
If you’ve been financially affected by COVID-19, I can work with you at a reduced rate or on a donation basis.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I’m woken early by the gentle sounds of a housemate rising. I’m working the late shift today so I don’t have to get up. I decide to seize the day.
I’m the only person on the Curragh plains. The sun blesses me with light. Dew drops glitter in the grass.
This morning, I rise at 5am. I do some breathing and get dressed in the half-light.
I shut the front door quietly and slip past blindfolded houses. I feel like I’m playing a trick on society, the only one awake.
I wake in the early hours of the morning. Unable to fall back to sleep, I creep to the other room to meditate.
The curtains are pulled wide. The sky is decorated with layers of cloud, dusky and white. The wind mewls, causing the ebony trees to arch and bounce.
My first instinct is to capture this experience for an Instastory. But having already committed to a social media-free Sunday, I don’t do this.
I’ve made a pleasing decision to treat myself to (at least) one thing per month that will make me feel good. I never question handing over large sums for rent, insurance and petrol, so why not do the same with things that will uplift me?
Investing in myself will increase my value, both to myself and to the world, because it will make me relaxed, energised, creative, motivated and inspired.

“Stress is wanting something to be different than what it is.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
This relaxing, insightful and empowering workshop will look at what resistance is, why we experience it and the impact it’s having on our lives (in body, mind and even in the choices we make).
The afternoon will include mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, gentle movement, guided visualisation and journaling as well as a pause for a short break for tea and snacks.
We will learn where our resistance stems from, we’ll bring it into the light to acknowledge and understand it, and we will release it so that we can experience freedom, peace, clear vision and a lightness of being.
It will take place on Sunday 8th March from 2.30-5.30pm in Balanced Bodies Holistic Centre in The Courtyard in Newbridge, Co. Kildare. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite at a cost of €30 plus service charge. Click here to book your place: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/releasing-resistance-tickets-92730203535
