Hello dear friends!
Welcome to your special edition of Mindful Updates!
I know that Corona Virus is on everyone’s mind at the moment so I am really keen to reach out
to you all and offer as much support as I can. More on that below. You have probably noticed
that this message is looking different. After 5 years of sending all your Mindful Updates
manually, I have moved to a platform that operates from an automated contact list. I am still
writing and choosing the content, but it is saving me a lot of time copying and pasting! Hahaha
If you would like to continue receiving my mindful updates you don’t need to do anything 🙂
but if you do not please select the unsubscribe button at the end of this email.
If you haven’t gathered yet I am not going to Peru this Monday. It looks like the Universe
wants me to stay here and I am starting to see more and more clearly what is my role in the
middle of this madness. I am glad because I know that I can be of more help to you all if I’m
not in the jungle with no wi-fi or other means of communicating. I will be sending my
Mindful Updates more often in the next few months so you will get your regular content,
but today I wanted to share everything that I think may help you in the current Corona crisis
regarding your physical, emotional and spiritual health. This virus feeds on fear, so the best
antidote is love. Therefore, what I want to focus on is spreading love and helping you raise
your consciousness and vibration. It is more important than ever that you stay present,
grounded and compassionate. That you look after yourself and practice kindness and
gratitude. If you like this vibe and this takes on things please watch this 2min long video. As
always feel free to forward this email to anyone who you think may benefit. See below for a
list of my offerings and other helpful resources:
1. A few days ago I have created a free supportive Whatsapp Group for my friends and
family where each morning I post a freshly recorded short meditation and a link to an
online yoga class that I complete that day. The response was amazing and people are
finding it very helpful, so now I am creating another group for everyone who currently is,
or has ever been, working with me, taken the course, participated in a workshop,
attended a retreat, etc. If you would like to join this group straight away do let me. I will
try to also post the “joining link” on my next Mindful Updates.
2. If you are an NHS worker and in need emotional support, you want to talk with
