Labyrinth Magic on YouTube
A creative project for children and parents who want to make beautiful labyrinths anywhere! I used to live in a Scottish retreat centre and spent many quiet evenings doodling on the rooftop; one night discovering the method given in this short video of creating a Chartres Labyrinth in a 7 simple steps. It’s easy to remember once mastered on paper or whiteboard. And why not try it next time you’re on a beach? I recommend watch the video through first, understanding the steps, then rewatch whilst drawing and following the instructions, hitting pause as needed. If you like playing with the pattern and find the labyrinth has a resonance with you, check out my book Labyrinth Magic with the Chartres Labyrinth.

A 1-hour guided meditation good for grounding with the elements, if you’ve felt ‘out of yourself’ recently. The benefits of guided meditation can include increased calmness, reduced stress, greater self-confidence and self-awareness, and improved sleep patterns and physical pain relief. This meditation can be enjoyed by people who’ve never meditated before, or those with an existing practice, and is from Meditation To Go, my one year programme of guided meditation for calmness and improved health, available on Amazon.
It’s recommended you listen to this in a quiet environment where you can be comfortable and undisturbed. If you feel ‘not entirely’ back in your body at the end of it, listen to the short video ‘Curtains’ which will assist.
