Mana - Thank you to all the wonderful participants and assistants who joined Neal and I this mid winter for the 'Joy of Rest' retreat.

Gaudi's immense and magnificent Sagrada Familia...


on retreat with Donna, Sam, Gaby, Melissa, Rhonda and 55 wonderful woman at Suryalila eco retreat, Spain. This was our sunset watching spot....

Lama Rigzin

I had the complete joy of meeting Lama Rigzin in Scotland, we had met and became friends a number of years ago at Namo Buddha, in Nepal where he was completing the lineage painting in the shrine room. We would practice yoga together at sunrise in the middle of winter. Lama is a Tibetan master painter and all round wonderful human being. We ended up at a Tibetan Buddhist Centre in a remote part of Scotland for some prayer ceremonies for world peace.

In love with Florence


I've been adventuring! Everywhere I have travelled to in the last few months has been about celebration, freedom, friendship and the majesty of nature, culminating in an afternoon of wonderment in Gaudis Sagra Famila in Barcelona. The nature and landscapes were for me defined by colours... Niue - green of the tropical forest, blue of the clear ocean and pink of the coral... Ireland - green of spring grass and trees and yellow of rapeseed fields and dandelions... Italy - gold of the biuldings and pink of Mary throughout the Uffizi gallery and the abundance of peonys... Scotland - Green grass and purple spring thistles! Cliche but soo true!!! Spain - gold of the ripe wheat fields and red of the poppy fields...


I had the absolute pleasure of first meeting this human being on the last teacher training with my teacher Donna Farhi in 2015. It seems a rare and blessed thing to meet a new and straight away beloved friend who lives so far away in Ireland. I promised to visit, I did - and have had the joy of living over three weeks with Lisa in Ireland, Italy and Scotland for my 40th birthday celebrations. Lisa is a masterful teacher of Yoga and Somatics, she leads Teacher Trainings in Europe and is an all round wonderful and inspiring woman. is her web address if you would like to check her out!!
