I currently work as a 5Rhythms® teacher​, a tachyon 'pain body release' therapist and as an active father to my two sons. Over the years I've been greatly influenced by various generous teachers with whom I've been fortunate enough to study with & I feel particularly indebted to Thich Nhat Hanh, Byron Katie, Adyashanti, and most importantly Rupert Spira and Gabrielle Roth, the latter of whom took me under her wing in 2000 and guided me to turn my life inside out.

Gabrielle saw no separation, all she saw in the human being was the dance of creativity, actualised as well as in potential. This welcoming of me as an innately creative being was something I'd never encountered before, not even in my bohemian London based upbringing. Never before had I felt truly seen and met in the limitless way that Gabrielle saw me. She gave me a new way to see myself and the world. Yet she didn't just awaken me to the fundamental existence of this vibrant creativity that we all are, she provided me and countless others with an extraordinary path from which to awaken and nurture the development of this creativity in the real day to day world.

Consequently my primary spiritual practice for the last 20 years has been Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms® and I continue to dance, study and teach the practice every week. Gabrielle trained me to teach at 'Waves' level in 2004/5 and in 2015 I completed my training as a 'Heartbeat' level teacher with Gabrielle's son Jonathan. (Sadly Gabrielle passed away back in 2012).

For the last 5 years my teaching has been greatly influenced by my ongoing studies into the nature of consciousness through my current teacher Rupert Spira with whom I've attended many retreats. The liberating realisation and consequential experiential understanding of 'who I really am' has taken the tension out of my teaching and opened up my classes to being a place for us to experience the presence of God, truth, love, whatever you wish to call it (Gabrielle called it the Mystery). No longer am I facilitating people to improve themselves but instead holding space for people to come to the experiential understanding that the ongoing dance of the body, breath, mind and emotions is simply consciousness in motion, inseparable from anything, already liberated from the illusory separate self that we think we are. In allowing the dance from the perspective of unity, the mind, body and emotions find their natural balance and there is no need for us to force anything.

The tachyon pain body release treatments that I perform are a safe and highly effective method for the tensions associated with our illusory separation to be released. For most if not all of our lives we have allowed the establishment of a deep network of tensions that have come about as a result of the cultural assumption that we are essentially separate and mortal, that our consciousness was born from our body and will therefore die with it. When these tensions are released through the healing, there is often an associated realisation of our nature as unified and whole. Through the release of tensions and energy blocks we become kinder, more loving and relaxed, and more open to our soul's unique purpose in life.

These healings are supported by my providing appropriate Wild Earth vibrational remedies for you to take at home. These wonderful remedies help to reveal particular gifts and characteristics that have been previously hidden or blocked in your life.

mission

My mission is to create a healthy, loving and beauty-filled community of light, inter connectedness and self responsibility by compassionately stepping forwards in love, power and presence to shine a light on who we truly are.
When we take the courage to shine the light of awareness on the parts of our self that are in shadow, and when our presence consequently comes to contain our strength, vulnerability and compassion, the energy around that presence re-calibrates. This is the role of the wounded healer who understands that to commit to evolving his own consciousness through spiritual practice is a deeply selfless service to the world.
Through sharing practices that inspire and awaken me, I aim to model and inspire others through authenticity, lighthearted presence, and an integrated understanding of cosmic freedom.
