Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get! That's how the saying goes, but you do know in my box of chocolates!! How? To find out more, read on or visit www.ommazingchocolates.com
Life is nothing, really, until you add the meaning. All of us will float through a lifetime, only some of us will be fulfilled by the journey. We'll do that by getting up off the bench - pursuing passions, developing interests, and honoring the vitality and time we've been given. Choose the life you want.
You have reached this page via my old website when I did holistic therapies..now life has moved on and my career has changed slightly!
I still offer occasional meditation retreat days
I take my Laughter Yoga skills to private events, such as Hen Parties.
I now make chocolates as a small Chocolatier...handmade luxury chocolates exclusively made for you...so if you would like some, please visit my new website www.ommazingchocolates.com. Yes OMmaZing Chocolates...mixing OM with amazing to add a bit of uniqueness!

Thank you for being wonderful and supportive clients, but this website will no longer be.
It's 1st November, the sun is shining brightly, it's warm and breezy and 18 degrees and yes I am in the UK, not abroad!! Crazy weather and loving it! The picture above was taken today...the view of our hill on the farm.
1st November is also Samhain and many people observe the sacred time of Samhain. Samhain is a festival of the Dead. Meaning "Summer's End" and pronounced saah-win or saa-ween, Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest and the start of the coldest half of the year. It is also the beginning of the spiritual new year.
Here are a few ways to celebrate Samhain.
Samhain Nature Walk. Take a meditative walk in a natural area near your home. Observe and contemplate the colors, aromas, sounds, and other sensations of the season. Experience yourself as part of the Circle of Life and reflect on death and rebirth as being an important part of Nature. If the location you visit permits, gather some natural objects and upon your return use them to adorn your home.
Reflections. Reflect on you and your life over the past year. Review journals, planners, photographs, blogs, and other notations you have created during the past year. Consider how you have grown, accomplishments, challenges, adventures, travels, and learnings. Meditate. Journal about your year in review, your meditation, and your reflections.
Renovate. Select an area of your home or life as a focus. Examine it. Re-organize it. Release what is no longer needed. Create a better pattern. Celebrate renewal and transformation.
Here's to your Spiritual New Year!

Slow down, take time out for the sole purpose of warming your heart and soothing your soul.
Instead of giving your to-do list ultimate control, enjoy the day by sitting under a tree or dangling your legs over a quay side. Whatever it takes to take care of you. It will help you reclaim clarity, energy and a general feeling of wellness & happiness....here are a few simple ways to achieve that beautiful space.
Meditation: 10-20 minutes a day of inner peace will do wonders for your insides and your outlook.
Go to the beach: kick off your shoes, turn your mobile off and sit or walk on the sand, enjoying the moment & sounds of the sea & birds singing.
Take a nap: lay down in the middle of the day and close your eyes for 20 minutes.
Escape: Release control and organisation and walk out the door and see where the day takes you.
A chance to break away even if it's 5 minutes a day, just let yourself go, to bring more joy to your heart and soul & treasure every moment.
Hack into your Brain’s default mode
The neuroscience behind meditation
It's all about me! Or it's all about you?!
Do you find you give out so much of you to others, whether it's in relationships, at work or friends in need and not give ourselves 'ME TIME'?!
It is good to give to others but it is so important too to have ME Time and to allow yourself to have ME Time. Otherwise too much giving and not enough receiving can make us unhappy, depleted and ill.
So take a rain check now, on how your energy is & ask yourself how are you feeling right now, are you happy, do I have enough ME Time? If some of your answers are 'no' and you would like to do something about it, change it, but don't know how.....then I suggest you try a Health MoT with me, where I can dowse you and check & align your energy levels, chakra balancing, food sensitivities, life/work balance etc. Perhaps have a Reiki to follow or some other form of treatment that you need to get your life back that makes your inner YOU sparkle again, that light within you shine, so you can enjoy life once more!!
Or you may like to spend a little longer with me and book a half day session on a 1-1 basis, or even a whole day on a Retreat Day or a few days on the Empowering Group Retreats which are all very reasonable. The world is your oyster!
If you would like a confidential chat with no obligation, then please feel free to call me on 07801 498519 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

I've just returned from a fabulous week on an amazing, inspirational yoga retreat in the Andalusian mountains. My 3rd visit there and I just love it. Time for me. Time to be, simply wonderful. Stunning views sweeping across the valley to a beautiful turquoise lake and mountains behind us. Birds singing early morning and mountain goats with their bells on in the distance. Peace and quiet, a chance to switch off all thoughts and just be. A digital detox - no tv, radio, books, phones, newspapers. Excellent healthy raw food & juices lovingly prepared each day. Learnt different styles of yoga, meditation and a treat of a gong bath and Thai Massage workshop, plus time to sunbath, walk, swim. Simply divine. I'm still in my bubble now of inner peace and calm, as I write this!!
This is better than a holiday in my books! This isn't a holiday, it is a Retreat to get away from everything and everyone and go within to truly find your hearts desire. If you haven't tried it yet, I would certainly recommend it.

I've just returned from a wonderful few days away by the seaside with my family. We had gorgeous weather, time to chat, laugh and play. Time to swim in the sea and time to just be. We saw beautiful sunsets, wonderful views and drank it all in. We enjoyed every moment. What we didn't have was signal for our phones or wifi and I didn't miss it one bit, as it gave me the chance to simply enjoy life, take in the scenery, listen to what people had to say, make conversation, taste the food and enjoy every single bit! I now feel relaxed and refreshed - bliss!!
When you come on one of our Retreat Days, you will gain a similar feeling to this as I do encourage everyone to hand over their mobiles and car keys when you arrive - so you can switch off too and enjoy every moment of your day, just for you, time to drink it all in and time to just be. Don't worry, you will get your belongings back when it's time for you to go home at the end of the day!

Relax Let Go and Enjoy The Moment - every second counts!
As I sit on top of the hill in a field full of buttercups, the golden yellow hue is everywhere. I sit and watch the buzzing bee jump from one nectar to another. I hear the lambs bleating in the distance, the leaves in the trees rustling as the wind gentle blows. All is still and calm as I look across to the Malvern Hills that stand majestically against the blue sky - what a view, as I enjoy this moment, this present moment. wow! You can enjoy this view too if you booked on one of the Retreat Days - see below!

For me it's time for a Spring Detox!
Firstly, a Spring clean for my body, mind and soul and then the house!! - too much rich food and chocolate over the Easter holidays!! Enough is enough!! As they say 'You are what you eat' and in this recent article which makes interesting reading...natural beauty comes from within...
Could you quit sugar for life? I'm not sure if I could for life, but I'm certainly going to give it a go while on my detox.....another interesting read!! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/you/article-2612107/Food-exclusive-Sarah-Wilsons-I-Quit-Sugar-Life.html.
Bring on British best Asparagus - great for detoxing, so good for you, I just love it, apart from your wee is green and smelly!! Beetroot, Avocado, Cabbage...here I come!!
Detoxification means to LET GO and release what it is that no longer serves us on different levels including food, drinks, addictive patterns, old stories and toxic relationships. In doing so, we allow the space to welcome in the new, better appreciate living in the moment and to live life full of creativity and joyful moments....
