Life is a journey
I offer Corporate Meditation Workshops and One-to-One Meditation Lessons. I mix a corporate background with extensive meditation experience, accredited by the British School of Meditation (BSoM).
I share insights and experiences from my travels to over 150 of the world's countries. Whatever your travel intentions or requirements, I can help you understand the world.
