What are 1:1 sessions with me like?

I give highly detailed, personalised meditation instructions to aide in your awakening.

To begin, it helps me to help you if I understand what motivates you, what you've been through/experienced, and how you understand your consciousness journey thus far.

From there, we'll get into the nuances of your phenomenology and more specific advice.

The Space I Provide

I'm here to provide an open and compassionate, as well as confidential, space for you to share how you relate to life, being and existence in its deepest sense.


By listening to how you construe things, I can better relate to you and tailor my language/advice in a way that may resonate with you more.  For example, are you more rationally or scientifically minded? Are you more poetic or philosophical? More spiritual/mystical? More of a personal development type person? Or a mix of all of the above? However you may be, I am very considerate of the fact that everyone is trying as best as they can to make sense of this world.

To begin, it's good to ask yourself:
-Why do you want to meditate?
-What do you hope to achieve/realise?

(Trying to answer these questions and sharing your answer with someone else can be helpful in its own right.)

It's helpful if you come to these sessions with an idea in mind of what you want to find clarity on/specific issues you want help addressing. If you're unsure of what you want to work on or don't have any specific questions, that's fine too :). Points of interest and focus always emerge!

From here we can go into more detail on which particular stage you may be at in your journey/where you're currently working from. *I do have a general roadmap for how one progresses on the path of insight, but it's important to remember the map is not the territory and everyone is different. And also sometimes this stuff just confuses and deludes people more.

How I Can Help/What We Can Get Into

  • Finding your leading edge of practice and insight - and instruct you on how to deepen, integrate and move forward from this place.

  • Advising specific techniques for specific moments of practice - When it comes to meditation practice, I have trained in many different techniques and have learnt when and which techniques are more advisable at different periods along the path.

  • Providing you helpful resources - frameworks, theories, maps and other teachings which can help you make sense of your experience and the general terrain of meditation and the mind.

  • Ask an adept meditator questions you couldn't ask a monk - I don't shy away, so ask away!

I believe in a skilful balance between practice & theory, with an emphasis on what is practicalTo close things off, at the end of our session, and throughout, I normally advise 2-3 pieces of practical advice that you can start implementing into your practice straightaway. Think of it like suggested 'homework'.
