Heartfulness trainer, Educator, Psychotherapist, Researcher
I have been practising and sharing Heartfulness as a trainer for more than thirty five years which has involved pioneer work in leading and creating new initiatives in Europe. In parallel with this focus, I have been a mother and working in education throughout my life on aspects of empowerment and transformation for women, teenagers, children, adults, in both formal and informal educational settings involving the community, health and public sector. I have had leadership roles in university and psychotherapy training and carried out doctoral research on meditation and transformational aspects of learning. (My book ’The Heart of Listening: Attentional Qualities in Psychotherapy and Counselling’ (Sage 2001 integrated spiritual, psychotherapeutic and neuro scientific aspects of the heart) Currently I am teaching Masters and Doctoral students qualitative methods in psychotherapy and sharing Heartfulness in Oxfordshire and UK. Fundamentally, beyond psychotherapy and education, I have found Heartfulness to offer the most profound transformation at all levels. In simply focusing on the heart, with the help of yogic transmission, we connect with the most profound source of intelligence which integrates inner and outer aspects of self and world.
