About Anne

My spiritual journey started when I discovered a local yoga class and through this I found new friends and developed a deeper interest in spirituality. I've been training for over 18 years in many disciplines, from Hatha Yoga to traditional Usui Reiki and Karuna Reiki to meditation, mindfulness and relaxation. I live on the sunny :) Isle of Wight, not far from the sea breezes and sandy beaches...

Day 96 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

Getting up at 5.30am is no guarantee of peace and quite in out house. It had been raining in the night, so I stayed indoors for my meditation practice today, lighting my candle, sitting on my bolster, starting to notice my breath. […]

Day 95 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

Getting up at 6am, I thought I would go outside so that I wouldn’t be interrupted, although part of me wanted to stay indoors wrapped up in the warm. It was another windy morning, the wind blowing my hair across my face, but at least I didn’t feel as cold today. […]

Day 94 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

My daughter got up at 5.30am and my partner’s alarm clock was going off, so in order to have a quiet space to practice I went outside. I wasn’t all that keen as it was cold and windy, but I thought I would give it a go anyway. […]

Day 91 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

My daughter was the first one up again this morning, all bright eyed and bushy tailed ready for the day, I haven’t felt like that for a while. I used to be a morning person and love the mornings, but recently I have found it a challenge to get out of bed and start my meditation practice. […]

Day 88 of 100 days of Mindfulness Meditation

Today I was unable to practice my meditation as normal, but I managed to do it in other ways. I practice my meditation every night as well, so last night I sat on my bolster to practice and I had a sudden rush of anxiety and found it very difficult to stay there. I changed positions laying on the bed with my legs up the wall to help me feel more relaxed and continued from there. […]
