Good morning, I have loved your 'presence' for many years Alistair (on escape to the country etc! Always finding you so calming!
I have followed you on Instagram for ages, and now found your website.
I have struggled for years with anxiety, worse since menopause, and then 2 years ago, I sadly, suddenly lost my husband...the worst night of my life..... I relived that night over and over for about a year.
Last year I had an anxiety breakdown, which (no help from the GP apart from Diazapam which I quickly got off) I dipped my toes into yoga, and mindfulness which helped a little (I had trouble keeping it going)
6 months ago I went to a meditation retreat day, which led to classes of mindfulness/meditation/Buddhism teachings, which is helping my thoughts and breathing (I've not been able to breathe properly for years).
I love Buddhist/contemplative/meditation teacher! Like you, he's so calming......
My husband was a therapist, he used to keep me going and hold me together in mind and body, so I lost more than just my best friend.....
He used to do a lot of EFT too, which again I need to do more of, so, joining your site/group can only add to my box of tools, and I hope give me a bit more strength. I am planning to move house this year too, which has so many mixed emotions and is quite scary for me.
Looking forward to seeing more of your teachings and guidance, thank you, Jayne xxx
