At the age of 20 I began a 14 year extensive training in Zen and Mindfulness Meditation with Meditation and Zen Master, John Garrie Roshi. His unique and profound teaching in freedom forms the basis of my Tai-Ji and Healing practice. With his encouragement I studied Tai-Ji and Taoism and developed my natural healing skills by training in Healing-Shiatsu with Sonia Moriceau. Sonia established the first professional training in Shiatsu in the U.K.
I am a Fellow of the Shiatsu Society with over 25 years experience in Shiatsu.
I studied for 3 years in Tantra with Namgyal Rinpoche. Attending workshops in Canada and the UK.
Since 2001 I have worked closely with the internationally recognised Tai-Ji Master, Chungliang Al Huang, author of the classic, “Embrace tiger, return to mountain.” Attending extensive training programs in Oregon, USA and Switzerland.
I am a recognised teacher of Tai-Ji with the Living Tao Foundation
I have Practised Healing-Shiatsu since 1992 at first in Snowdonia in North Wales and more recently in Herefordshire.
I have run Classes Tai-Ji since 1998. I have worked for County Councils and the NHS helping people bring the essence of Tai-Ji and relaxation into their working lives.
I love being in Nature, walking in the mountains and camping.
I am a trained and experienced Steiner School teacher, Bio-dynamic farmer and gardener ,actor, painter and husky Sledge dog handler.
I recently moved to Herefordshire so that my children can attend the Steiner Academy Hereford School.
