Who am I?

I am a freelance Mindfulness teacher and writer based in Oxford. I teach eight week courses and run residential retreats and quiet days. I teach both the MBCT course for the OMC and a course based on Mark Williams’ and Danny Penman’s book Mindfulness – a practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world.

I have had an interest in mental health most of my adult life and started my own journey into Mindfulness when I found that it made a significance difference to how I managed the stresses of my life and to my periods of depression.

I also used to be an Anglican Vicar and so am interested in the relationship between Mindfulness and spirituality of all kinds. The courses and retreats I have run for churches seek to link Mindfulness with Christian spirituality in particular but I also have an interest in spirituality of different faith traditions and the common threads which run through them all.

I have published two books, both with SPCK:

  • Mindfulness and Christian spirituality seeks to offer mindfulness especially to Christians.
  • SEE LOVE BE – mindfulness and the spiritual life is an eight week mindfulness programme with a meditation CD which seeks to explore the idea of spirituality in its more generic and non-dual sense.
