Thinking of you. This is for YOU. Feel free to share. Stay safe, stay calm, and stay well. JxAmidst the current times we are all facing, I'm conducting mindfulness meditation sessions online to offer practice to everyone, anywhere in the world.
To help keep us connected while we are isolated, help us stay calm during a time of great anxiety, to give us an opportunity to care for one another, and to be together, I am providing a free live and online daily meditation group.
Every day, for the entire month of April at 8pm Brisbane time, I will offer a 30 minute live and online, free daily meditation/support group on Zoom.

I’m so grateful to know that the more I cultivate mindfulness in my life, I can stay calm and not lose my mind at this time.
What I’ve learned is what we often think and fear is going to happen, won’t happen the way we think. And if it does, it’s never permanent.
To best response to our challenges, our gift to ourselves and to those around us is to stay calm, moment to moment.
The simple practice of mindful meditation that I do each morning and evening, that seems insignificant, actually changes our brain and our body - it’s an act of loving kindness to myself and to you.
Never before have I been so acutely aware of our interconnectedness and our humanity and our affect on one another and the planet.
I’ve never felt so ‘awake’ to the whole world around me. And how much power I have to manage my own inner world to properly, calmly interact with the outside world. We can all learn to do this. And there’s never been a more important time to do this.
My heart genuinely hurts to see so much pain, anxiety, stress, fear and panic in the world. We must use this time purposely. For this reason I’ve decided to facilitate free online mindfulness meditation sessions starting next Wednesday 1 April, for the whole month of April. I hope you’ll join me. I’ll post more details very soon.
I’ve even started doing online ‘workplace’ lunchtime mindfulness connect/reflect and reset sessions. We all need to remember we are not alone in this and we CAN help each other to emerge from this crisis stronger, wiser and more aware of our impact on the planet.
Remember to look up, smile and count your blessings.
May you be safe. May you be calm. May you be well. Sending a big virtual heart hug your way. We will all get through this stronger and wiser together. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

In your quiet space today, open your mind and heart to a greater sense of balance and equilibrium. Often when making life changes we need a sense of protection and guidance. Surround yourself with white light and ask to feel safe and secure as you venture forward. Call for assistance from higher forces - they will come and tenderly support you. We are never truly alone.

Quick Q: which part of this image do you focus on - the blue sky and the light beyond, or the dark in the foreground?
Times are changing. We must learn to stay calm, clear minded and adapt. We must cultivate a reserve of inner peace to support us to navigate through the disruption. We need a more sustainable way to live, be and breathe in the world.
Join me for the whole month of April for evening online mindful meditation sessions where I’ll whole heartedly re-source you and demonstrate practical ways to reduce stress, anxiety, worry and confusion.
Together we will get through this stronger, calmer and wiser.
Stay tuned for more details or PM me your email address, or subscribe directly to my newsletter at email@example.com
Feel free to share this post with others who may benefit fir the gifts of inner peace, calm and clarity of mind.
I look forward to connecting with you, heart to heart, for your sustainable inner peace. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

I sense April is too far away
A really important concept for successful meditation practice is letting be or allowing. It’s a quality that gives space to whatever you encounter in the moment when you still yourself for meditation.
For example, if anxiety comes up as you meditate, you can choose to work with it by simply allowing the feeling to be there. In time, you can learn to ride a wave of anxiety until it dissipates, just as dark storm clouds pass on by in the sky. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

I had a good friend contact me just now quizzing me about why I'm not posting commentary about the present situation in the world today.
I responded by saying there is more than enough emphasis on all of that right now. I want to focus attention on what we can do to support ourselves and others to keep sight of the 'good' in our lives. How can we re-source ourselves to weather and adapt to this storm, and emerge renewed and empowered.
I am also working in the background to offer a FREE online mindful meditation program to help counter fear, stress and anxiety that is building up around and inside of us. THAT to me, and resourcing ourselves, is more useful than talking about and focusing on the problems and threats.
It's my birthday next month, and that will be my gift to you. If you're interested in knowing more, PM me your email address or watch this space for further details coming soon.
I'm also about to launch my podcast!!! Yes... long overdue. It will focus on real stories of real people who have overcome adversity - their lessons, their insights and their legacy. It's called You Can Shine - because just like the Sun that inspires me each day, we too can Rise and Shine again no matter what life dishes up for us. It will be released in my newsletter/blog this weekend so please subscribe so you don't miss out.
In the meantime, B R E A T H E. Count your blessings. Stay well. A new dawn is coming. Sending love and calm your way, Jx ... See MoreSee Less

Just thought I’d comment here and say thank you for not perpetuating the current “event”. The “business as usual” approach you have taken is awesome. You have given people a place to come to which is familiar and calm amongst the perceived chaos. Lots of love to you and your family. 💕
To get the most out of your meditation practice we must learn to drop our judgements. This means experiencing the present moment without the filters of evaluation of meaning making.
Stepping out of a judgmental mindset allows us to see more clearly. When we let go of evaluations, many sources of anxiety and worry simply fade away. When we feel anxiety, adopting a non-evaluative stance can reset our mind into a more balanced and peaceful state. Jx ... See MoreSee Less
