meditations for the lock down

This series of specially selected and curated meditations are designed to help you cope during strange times.

When we give our minds a rest, just for a few minutes each day, our stress levels diminish and we become the calm in a storm.

Somewhat ironically, we also open up …

… give your mind a treat

… also to help you cope

Now available in hardcover, paperback, audiobook & ebook at most outlets

How did we get here?

Where are we heading?

Who, or what, is pulling your strings?

When will life on Earth come to an end?

Why was Soulwaves published on the 1st Full Moon of 2020?

Latest Happenstances

My blog used to be a repository for articles and thought pieces – you can still access them in the archive. This year it’s morphing into what a blog used to be – a journal of my goings on and happenings.

Out of the Void

In just one Moon orbit of the Earth, much has changed. Like most of the planet, we are in self-isolation and in equal awe at how the virus is spreading but how such acts of compassion and humanity are also nicely 'infecting' the globe. This will be an amazing turning...

The Void and The Density

This 'moonth' has seen an unprecedented level of creativity, even for me. Three podcasts, three new ambient tracks and one guided meditation just popped out of nowhere. More specifically they came from the Void to the Density with me as the conduit. This process is...

Starting a ‘Wave

When you haven't written a book, getting it actually published can seem like a bit of a mountain to climb. When you do get it published, it can appear like another bigger and harder mountain appears - and that's to tell people about it and to get them to read it. In...

A Gift That Keeps on Giving

Just over 10 years ago, I published my first non-fiction book called Blocks. To accompany it, I created a set of meditations. Little did I know then that would lead me down a completely different path. This month, my meditations reached the 2.3 million listens point...

Finding a Way

While I have been busy creating the Soulwaves book itself, I have consciously done nothing about publishing it, other than to observe what is happening in the industry. So rather than me having to find the way to get it published, I've been allowing the paths to...

15 Books Later

Fifteen books later, the book I started first has finally been written - and narrated. It's now off for typesetting as this blog gets published. The day after the book is done and it's now kind of out of my hands, it's almost like missing an old friend and there is a...

Small Steps Big Steps

Soulwaves : The Audiobook This month has been consumed by audiobook production - slotted in around loads of family support. At 100 chapters and just shy of 100k words, there is no short cut. I am managing 10 chapters a week and am 70 chapters in at the...

Taking Hands off the Wheel

Artwork by Siri Stiklestad Opli The month of August has become a big handle turning exercise. September augurs more of the same. The reason being is that 35 of the 100 chapters of Soulwaves are now narrated. I make no bones about it, it is a huge task and big ask,...

Two Million Listens

Several blogs ago I set my stall our to post once a month as a bread crumb trail of what was going on in my life - the original purpose and format for a blog perhaps. Something happened at the start of this month which means I should break with this...


Now I should state that I am really not a fan of Formula 1. To me the prospect of watching paint dry is more compelling. That said, I am a big fan of analogy and metaphor and the concept of taking a pit stop and changing tyres for a new road ahead seemed...

Cogs Are Turning

This month I did something I have never done before in the middle of a big project. I took a month off. Well not exactly, I packed up a house I’d lived in for 20 years and had a week's holiday on a wide beam 64 foot long canal boat on the Kennet &...

“Meditation makes the entire nervous system go into a field of coherence.” Deepak Chopra

Meditation is like a technology for the mind.

Not only does it reduce stress and anxiety but it is also the key to access higher states of consciousness. Meditate for just 10 minutes a day for just a week and you will start to see the world in a whole new way.

If you fancy a read to open your mind, there’s a bunch of them here, soon to be joined by another.
