About me


Hello! I'm Alan.


I've been meditating for over 30 years and discovered its practical applications to daily life - mindfulness - about five years ago.


I'm an accredited Breathworks teacher delivering the Mindfulness for Stress and Mindfulness for Health courses.

Mindfulness is our capacity to attend to the present moment. Most of the time we live our lives in our mind; planning for or worrying about the future and remembering the past, good times and bad (usually bad!). Even when we are in the present moment we can be caught up in our expectations and judgements about it, so we end up thinking about the present moment rather than just being in it.


This lack of mindfulness can result in many problems including dissatisfaction with life, stress, fatigue and being unable to sit down for long.
