I teach a very simple and effective form of meditation that is suitable for everyone. My goal is to empower participants to create their own daily practice of mindful meditation. Relaxation is gently achieved by an open and welcoming approach that guides the participant to become mindful and focus on whatever is happening at that moment. Sounds, the breath, physical sensation and thoughts are all used as easy gateways to experiencing relaxation and peace.
A regular meditation practice quickly yields a variety of benefits including better sleep, reduced stress and tension, a calmer mind and an increasing sense of peace and well-being in your daily life.

An introduction to an easily learnt style of mindful meditation. You will be supported and encouraged to establish your own daily practice so you can enjoy the many benefits of meditation. All Courses take place in my Studio in Epsom with a maximum of 9 participants and the cost is £97.
- “I enjoyed the course and am now able to meditate at home, already experiencing the benefits. I look forward to continuing this journey.” SJ
- “It has encouraged me to make the time for myself, be it short or long, in order to meditate. I feel energised and more relaxed in my everyday life when I maintain meditation practice and I feel enabled to deal with difficult situations in a calmer more rational manner. It helps me to feel better and more confident in all situations I encounter”.BC

Saturday Morning Meditation Sessions
From time to time I offer a Saturday meditation session that gives an opportunity to deepen your mindful meditation practice in an oasis of calm for a whole morning. Each session includes a specific focus on teachings about energy medicine or spiritual development. They all take place from 9.30am–12.30pm in the warm, supportive atmosphere of my Epsom Studio with a maximum of 7 participants. A break for tea/coffee/refreshments is included and the cost is £30.
Forthcoming Saturday Morning Meditation Sessions 2018
19th May 9.30am-12.30pm — Spirituality & Meditation (1 place still available) An exploration of how the practice of meditation and resting in stillness can support and create a framework for spiritual growth. Understanding the difference between psychic gifts such as clairvoyance, aura reading or mediumship and walking a spiritual path.
23rd June 9.30am-12.30pm — The Secrets of Forgiveness (Full with a waiting list) Holding on to resentment, anger and hurt veils your perception of reality and uses up unnecessary amounts of energy that can leave you feeling physically depleted. Forgiveness enables you to release these harmful emotions and helps you let go of the people and issue involved. This leaves you free and open with more energy to embrace a more vibrant life. Many find forgiveness difficult and during the morning we will explore different ways to access and create forgiveness in our life.
14th July 9.30am-12.30pm — The Inner Smile & Practising Compassionate Kindness It is easy to indulge in self-criticism and judgement of others especially when things do not turn out the way we expected or wanted. Practising the arts of inner smiling and compassionate kindness softens the critical voice lodged in our minds, reducing feelings of stress and supporting positive outcomes and better relationships with ourselves and others, especially when “things go wrong”.
15th September 9.30am-12.30pm – Connecting with the Stillness in Trees Spending time in nature away from the usual demands of life helps to clear the mind and creates relaxation. We will be deepening this effect by consciously taking time to connect to the still nature of trees, in particular to the huge beautiful Ash tree in my garden. We will be using essence of Ash to support this connection. We will also experiment with essence of the Apple Tree.
To make a booking, please send me an e-mail
One to One Meditation Training

- “It has been amazing… I feel more relaxed and am able to meditate on my own now. It was an ideal starting point. I recommend meditation to anyone wanting to achieve ‘space’ in their lives and I thoroughly recommend Gillian as the person to guide you into it. She instils confidence, calm and encouragement.” GF

Friday Morning Group – inspired by the Journey
The Friday Morning Group offers guided meditation and a supportive and understanding environment for anyone who is experiencing emotional and / or spiritual confusion. At certain times in our lives events may overwhelm us.
This may be in the form of physical illness, relationship difficulties with our partners or other family members, times of bereavement, traumas experienced by our children or simply a longing for things to be different.
