About us


My lifelong passion has been exploring spiritual paths in both the East and the West and I have been a teacher of meditation all my adult life. In 1998 I founded a Meditation Centre in Cumbria to bring together those of different faiths and beliefs, recognising that we each tread our own path to awakening to the Truth and Love that resides within us all.

Alongside my work as a spiritual guide, I’m also a photographer and writer and have documented the life and landscape of Northern England though several illustrated books. In 1997 I wrote my autobiography In Search of Freedom, and in 2019  my first novel, The Mystery of Martha, a story about two women living 2,000 years apart who tread the same path to their awakening. My latest book, a memoir, came out in 2023 which tells the story of my own search from childhood to the present day.


My early exposure to the Church left me with more questions than answers, but prompted a lifelong quest for spiritual truth.  I then began exploring different spiritual traditions, but with no clear idea of what I was looking for.

Gradually my focus shifted away from doctrine and belief systems towards self-enquiry and discovered ageless, universal mystical teachings that lie at the heart of all spiritual traditions. Only then did I find answers to questions that had haunted me all my life.

Through Sacred Meditation, Eliza and I share these simple, timeless truths, which are accessible to anyone who has the desire to embrace them and awaken to the truth of who we are.
