Without training, the mind is busy with thoughts and there is little awareness of these thoughts. The thoughts seem to control the person, rather than the person being in control of the mind. This is problematic, because when thoughts go unwatched, they generate havoc! Thoughts patterns lock in emotions, and these cause unhappiness. As you engage in spiritual practice, you begin to become aware of the mind and its tricks. As thoughts subside, and as the links between thought patterns and emotions become weaker, there is more joy and peace – our true, natural state as human beings. Life becomes more enjoyable and simple (with less painful drama) and challenges are easier to resolve. There is also a more direct and ongoing access to intuition, which is the body’s natural guidance system. Self Inquiry is a spiritual practice that fast-tracks the breaking of the harmful links between thoughts and emotions that give rise to unhappiness. By observing your thoughts, identifying habits of thinking and their connection with your feelings and experiences, you can sever these patterns, dissolving their influence for good. The result? You feel better, often instantly. Your mind is clearer. You feel a new freedom and confidence that propels you to a lighter state of being. In this event, we will practise the tools of Self Inquiry with an emphasis on training the mind to be alert and clear, enabling thought observation and the breaking of unhelpful habits. In doing the exercises, your awareness of your inner wisdom – your intuition – will strengthen, so you can increasingly guide yourself from within, rather than looking outside for answers. We will also work with your real-time issues to shift them in the session. Bring an open mind and the willingness to let go of what does not serve you. Please bring: a notebook and pen. We will start at 18:30. Please arrive a few minutes early to get settled. Venue: Friends Meeting House, 120 Heath Street, London NW3 1DR. A few minutes walk from Hampstead tube station.

As well as training individuals and groups in personal development, she spoke on platforms such as TEDx and national/international media. Several years ago, she took a step back from her business to refine, deepen and simplify her own Self Inquiry practice. She now creates space for like-minded people to come together to disrupt their own blocks in their inner and outer worlds, to reveal and experience ever more of the truth.
