‘You’ –and your challenges – are vast, boundless, empty fullness, unconditional love unfolding. What is, is perfection. Including suffering and challenge and delight. When oneness is seen, the ordinary is a miracle. The most mundane thing we can ever do is truly extraordinary.
Love is what ‘you’ are. ‘You’ are light. ‘You’ are simply life. ‘You’ are intelligence. ‘You’ are energy. This radiant and absolute joy in being is immediate and quietly underpins and embraces all pain and separate self.

For those who wish it, here at Secret Garden is the art of living happily, whatever one’s apparent personal circumstances. This work is natural and profoundly humane. As a by product, the rewards are greater freedom, ease, effectiveness, joy and happiness in relationship, work, life. However the message is that there is nowhere to go, nothing to get, nothing to become. And to love what is, love yourself like your own best lover. Love what you feel right now. Let what is, be.

Let the Secret Garden Circles give you space to explore how to live a spiritually awake life that is also an embodied happy, authentic, earthly, natural one.
I would be delighted to meet and work with you if you are new to these explorations, and to see you again soon if you are an old friend. It’s my privilege and profound pleasure to walk with those who love and value beingness. Enjoy!
In endless gratitude to all my teachers and guides and to all those friends who bring their own particular beauty to our circles and with all love to you.
