I am passionate about helping women of all ages unearth their natural, sustainable capacity for joy, focus and grace.

I trained intensively in the Buddhist tradition for 5 years, experiencing two full years practising vipassana meditation for five hours every day, and since then over 20,000 hours on silent retreat.

My spiritual practice began early. Growing up in a violent home in Northern Ireland during the war, I found solas in connection to my natural world and Mother Mary. I began a yoga practice and working with animal spirits in my late teens, both of which are still part of my daily spiritual practice.

I trained in Non-Violent Communication at Findhorn in 2010, where I was called to teach mindfulness meditation. After completing the Mindfulness in Schools training I developed my own teaching style centred on self-compassion.

Since then I have taught thousands of adults and children to meditate - in schools, adult education, healthcare, families, businesses and individuals from all walks of life.

As I began teaching meditation my relationship with the Divine Feminine and Shamanic healing deepened radically, which led me back to the feminine face of God, and to study the beauty of our biological healing processes through neuroscience, Energy Medicine and EFT Tapping.

My background is in Fine Art and I continue to draw and write most days. Last year I finished my first two books.

I am nourished by living in tune with my natural world and animal companions. I connect weekly with the HayHouse Community and a 12-step group.

I came to meditation in my late 20s, after years of chronic pain, panic attacks, insomnia and depression.

When I went on that first silent retreat my life changed completely. I had finally found a way to release the traumas of the past and find my true voice.

To me, these meditation techniques that heal body and mind are a birth right. This is why I teach. I know from personal experience that we really can heal from anything, no matter how terrible.

It is because of a daily meditation practice that my life just keeps getting better and better.
