Perhaps you have dropped by my blog to pick up some meditation advice, or maybe you are in a situation at work, or in your relationship that is prompting you to look for some answers.
Whatever the reason is that you are here, welcome! I hope you find what you are looking for and if by chance, you don’t find it then drop me an email and let me know what you are interested in. I will see if I can help.
The blogs that you will find here deal with different aspects of wellbeing, along with all the ways in which we can undermine ourselves as we try to achieve it. It’s a funny thing but don’t you find that much as we want to change and grow, we can still manage to get in our own way?
One of the special features of the Awareness in Action blog is the wide range of meditations and exercises we include to help us work with the habits that we have developed in order to help us cope but that actually get in our way. As we learn to make these techniques part of our everyday life, we begin to find ways to exchange these habits for ones that will help us develop. We can bring about the changes we are looking for.
To help you find your way around you will see blogs marked that relate to your own journey, to your relationships and to your workplace. You can also just browse around and see what catches your attention.
Now you have found us, feel free to comment, ask questions and share your own experience. A blog only really comes alive when its readers join in and take part.
