two types of change

How do you feel when you experience big changes in your life?

• Do you feel excited and open or do you feel nervous and jumpy?
• Are you welcoming of change or do you often find yourself on the back foot in reaction mode?
• Does it feel smooth and positive or bumpy and uncomfortable?

welcome (back) to my blog

It has been quite some time since I posted an article on my blog and so for some of you this may be the first time you have seen Conscious Living Blog. If you have received this by email, that is because you learned to meditate with London Meditation Centre or New York Meditation Centre or you signed up to the blog directly.

After time away having a baby (she’s nearly two now!), I am back to writing articles and hope you will find these interesting and inspiring. I welcome your comments and look forward to developing this space further.

Keep an eye out for the next article: “you are not alone”

All best wishes,
