November 2018. A beautiful autumnal day with falling leaves and a tiny wren in the garden brings peace and tranquility. I'm currently attending a course about Food Addictions. Fascinating, relevant, terrifying for those who suffer from this very real and distressing disease. More on this when the course is completed in a few weeks time.


The month of the two B's - Bumblebees and Bowen technique. 

Bees, our essential pollinators, are declining at an alarming rate and some species have now been declared extinct in Britain. Pollination is vital for the food that we eat. Bees love lavender, borage, foxgloves, verbena – there is a multitude of yummy plants for hungry bees and it’s so easy to grow these in our gardens. Check out the Bumblebee Conservation Trust: 

A friend recommended the Bowen technique to me after I trapped a nerve in my back. I’ve tried all kinds of therapies over the years but never this one. It was amazing! 

The Bowen technique is very distinctive, a kind of rolling action on very precise points on the body. I found it very relaxing, a little strange and occasionally a little uncomfortable. But I had a strong impression that my body was reacting in a positive way. 

After the treatment was over, I had a gorgeous sensation of my body not being my own! I felt like I had something ‘warm and fuzzy’ whooshing around inside. Like I’d been shaken up – gently – and placed back down in a better physical condition. 

The pain in my hip was gone. My tight hamstrings were looser than they have ever been. I felt relaxed and peaceful. When I left the treatment room and went outside I felt a little nauseous but that soon passed and I’ve felt fantastic ever since. 

My therapist is Andreas Souris. Email him at for more information. Always check with your GP first if you have any medical conditions. 

Andreas is charming, calm, professional, knowledgeable, courteous and attentive. I thoroughly enjoyed the session and am really amazed at how powerful it was. I am going to return now and again for to maintain the new equilibrium that I have.

I don't do Blogs or Bombardment via email or Facebook postings or Instagram or Twitter or any of those amazing platforms to 'talk' to you.

There are lots of people out there doing just that and very often their work is truly outstanding. I admire them, they are awesome indeed.

However, personally, I find it all a bit too much. For me, the internet is a noisy and cluttered and hectic place and I sometimes want peace and quiet and tranquillity... Some time to think and reflect.

Don't we all spend too much time in front of a PC screen?

So I work with a notebook, a paper diary and a pencil. I love the feeling of pencil on paper. I think more deeply when I write in this way. I find it relaxing and energising.

So you won't find lots of information or stories to amuse or entertain or help or inspire you on here. You have to meet me in person for that!

You will find information about events and retreats and maybe recommendations...

Thank you for reading and enjoy the rest of your day!

With Gratitude and Smiles, Joan
