I have practised and taught mindfulness, meditation and related disciplines around the world for over forty years in a number of roles.
For over forty years I have devoted my life to practising and teaching mindfulness, meditation and Buddhist practices around the world. I was involved in the establishment and running of several Buddhist centres, including founding a public centre in Stockholm, Sweden, and working as director of a retreat centre in the UK, where I spent much time leading and attending intensive retreats. I’ve led retreats and Buddhist training programmes in the UK, Germany, Holland, Sweden, Spain, North America, Australia and New Zealand.
Following a powerful experience on retreat some years ago, I’ve felt a growing urge to devote more of my life caring for people who suffer from pain and illness. At that time I had developed a close friendship with Vidyamala and was inspired by the work she was doing teaching mindfulness-based techniques to manage long-term health conditions. I trained with Vidyamala in the Breathworks Programme in Manchester and there in 2004 became co-founder alongside Vidyamala and my good friend Gary Hennessey – also known as Ratnaguna. I’m interested and involved in expanding the Breathworks Programme into other areas, such as the suffering arising from the complexities of modern life.
