Three weeks after my brother took his own life I travelled the world alone.
In the depths of grief and sorrow I began a journey that changed my life forever.
I closed my Physiotherapy practice, left my home, family and friends and began a world-wide study sabbatical.
I studied with some of the greatest spiritual teachers in the world.
I learnt from those who had discovered the most cutting-edge research into the human mind and body.
I spent weeks on retreat embodying the teachings and practices that had been shared with me: many which were over 2500 years old.
I immersed myself in in-depth mindfulness training, modern neuroscience, psychology, somatics, ancient wisdom, eastern philosophy and spirituality.
Many of the teachings of the mind and body that I learnt came back to what’s common at the heart of many spiritual paths and have been used universally to help humans free themselves from suffering.
These teachings were the antidote to my profound sorrow and have continued to awaken me from the stories of the mind which can lead to fear, worry and feelings of unworthiness. I still get lost in thoughts, but these practices continue to provide peace and freedom to my life.
Awakening the Body and Mind Podcasts an Coming Home to Your Body Retreats have been arranged around these gateways to peace and freedom.
I interview and present at retreats some of the greatest teachers of spirituality and awakening from Buddhist monks to thought leaders.
I get to learn from some of the greatest researchers and scientists to share their discoveries.
I also get to share the stories from the alchemists - those who have experienced unbelievable suffering and transformed their pain to help others and also the world at large.
My job as a physiotherapist has revolved largely around helping ease emotional and physical pain and creating transformation with my patients. I can confidently say after treating over 10,000 patients and hosting retreats over the past few years, that how we experience pain all begins in the mind.
Watching my brother’s emotional turmoil in the years before he took his own life, I also learnt to understand how our mind creates our world.
Our perspective and perceptions of what’s happening outside of us, as well as our inner world are all created in the mind. Whether or not we feel at home inside of ourselves depends on the lens that we are looking at life through.
And that’s where our freedom and power truly lies. Because if we createour world through the mind, then we can also transform that.
I believe we need practices of awareness to better understand how our mind, our thoughts and our feelings are creating our world and how we are living. You might ask yourself, how much of today did I spend worrying about what might go wrong? How much time did I spend rehashing a scene from the past wishing that I’d done something differently?
May the podcasts and the retreats be a place that you can return to again and again.
May they also provide the mind-training that helps free you from stories and fears and connect you with presence.
May they help you feel at home inside of yourself.
