My early exposure to the Church left me with more questions than answers, which launched me on a lifelong quest for spiritual truth. I began by exploring teachings and practices from a variety of spiritual traditions but with no clear idea of what I was searching for.
Gradually my focus shifted away from doctrine and belief systems towards self-exploration. It was then that I began finding answers to questions that had haunted me all my life. It was this that led me to the ageless and universal mystical teachings that lie at the root of all spiritual traditions – and these simple, timeless truths are accessible to anyone who has the desire to embrace them.
Through Sacred Meditation, Eliza and I offer insights into this journey of self-discovery in awakening to the truth of who we are.
I’ve had a lifelong passion exploring different spiritual pathways in both the East and the West and have been a teacher of meditation all my adult life. In 1998, I founded the Meditation Centre in Dent, Cumbria, with a vision of bringing together those of different faiths and beliefs.
Alongside my work as teacher and guide, I’m also a photographer and writer and have produced several books on the life and landscape of Northern England which include The Light Within: A Celebration of the Spiritual Path and my own story: In Search of Freedom – One Woman’s Journey.
In 2013, I left the Meditation Centre to focus on my own search, which resulted in my new book: The Mystery of Martha. With my husband David, I now run Sacred Meditation.
