Oshadhi Meditation




Short introduction to myself


My spiritual enquiry was ignited at eighteen when I first heard Krishnamurti speaking at his school in Hampshire but it was not until I reached fifty that I had the opportunity to follow this in earnest. I moved to Henfield where I met my yoga teacher who also incorporated the philosophy of yoga.  She had been with the School of Economic Science (from the Shankaracarya tradition, as well as Ouspensky and Gurdieff). I met her teacher when he was giving a talk at the Patanjali Centre for Classical Yoga (where I now teach).


Straight away I knew that here was a teacher who would guide me on my journey. He has extensive knowledge on the Vedas, Upanisads, Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Shakespeare, the Bible and much more; having studied them in detail for over forty years. He introduced me to Sanskrit and the Mahesvara Sutras (which he wrote) and I have been working with them for seventeen years.


The Shankara tradition goes back to an oral tradition but when the teachings were being lost, they were written down 5,000 years ago; yet they still remain as relevant today, as the teachings are immortal. Swami Rama was my teacher’s teacher and he was fortunate to be in his presence when he visited the UK.


For over twenty years I have followed my teacher’s guidance whilst at the same time developing them into practical use with meditation, yoga, qi gong and ultimately self healing. I find the joy in using the ancient sanskrit language and endeavour to share it with others.





Invitation to daily 8 am connection 

in silent and stillness.


We find ourselves in challenging times and worldwide we are all in it together, we are part of humanity and beyond.


We are born with the birth right of silence and stillness but as we grown up we lose awareness of that connection, yet it remains ever present within; it is eternal. It is a space of great depth that can nurture and sustain through difficult times. 


To find it you have to turn away from external distractions and look inwards. Through my group of meditators we have initiated a joining together in the subtle realm at 8 am every morning till 8.30 am. This will encourage the opportunity for pauses during the day with reconnection by simply fallng still and silent.


We invite you to join us for whatever time you can spare 5 or 10 minutes. To fall still with the body and silent with the mind. To calm the mind by following the breath at the bottom of the nostrils, staying with its flow gently in and gently out. Meditative awareness has many benefits in its own right..
