Welcome

I'm a mindfulness teacher based in Scotland. I've been teaching Mindfulness online now for well over a year and, like so many of us working in this field, I have come to regard communicating on Zoom pretty much the norm - at least for the time being. I teach on a one-to-one basis but more often I teach groups of up to 10 people.

Having lived for a few years at Scotland's Samye Ling Tibetan Monastery in the 1980s I was inspired to teach Mindfulness many years ago when encountering the person who became my teacher - The late, Ven. Akong Rinpoche Tulku. While I teach secular mindfulness to my clients, my work has always been strongly influenced by Buddhist philosophy, essentially rooted in nurturing loving kindness and compassion for oneself and others. It is on these foundations that I operate an ongoing equality and diversity policy of in relation to all those I teach - regardless of ability, race, gender, class, religion or age. I have a developed interest in working with issues around identity which can prove so challenging to many in life in so many complex ways. In particular, I work with Trans and Non-Binary gendered people as well as with the LGBT Plus community at large. I run courses for both these communities, believing that people can have much to gain by knowing that they will be welcomed into a safe, entirely non-judgemental environment. This of course is exactly the same ethos that I apply when I offer 'open course' which anyone is welcome to join.

My courses tend to run in 3 - 4 month cycles. I do hope to welcome you onto one of these at some stage.
