OMF teaching team, Received trained teacher certificate (Stage 6), Supervisor
I am a mindfulness teacher, supervisor and qualified secondary school teacher.
It was while living in Taiwan (2001-4) that I became interested in meditation. Later, when I returned to the UK, I began to explore more fully the benefits of mindfulness meditation for people who suffer from recurrent depression (myself included). Today, my practice is based in the secular tradition, and I am particularly interested in moving mindfulness ‘off the cushion’ and making a positive impact on society.
