Short Bio: Suffering insomnia many years ago, I taught myself to ‘go to sleep at will’ by combining several mindfulness approaches. Since then I’ve enjoyed wonderful sleep. Now, I’m passionate about sharing my skills: showing others how to re-ignite the innate, life-giving elixir of sleep.
I have practiced and taught mindfulness for over four decades, drawing on different mindful approaches. While working and writing widely in the field (see my general website) I increasingly specialize in sleep, helping people to overcome a variety of sleep-related problems; and also support those facing physical and emotional challenges, where unresolved issues inhibit or disrupt creativity, artistry and performance, through loss of sleep. I am author of a growing range of mindfulness books and other materials.
