Founder of World Health Heroes blogs my children’s picture book

Can you or your child benefit by being more in the present? My picture book Donna and Dermot on the Move is about how better mental health comes from living in the moment instead of dwelling on the past or future.

A blog from Owen Morgan Whh, founder of World Health Heroes and little Ezra. This made me smile!


Continue your spiritual journey with Rahanni

Do you practise Reiki or are you wanting to help others with your healing touch? I am running a certified Rahanni Celestial Healing practitioner course at the The Arcturus Clinic in Totnes. The dates are 30th September and 14th October. Contact me if you feel drawn to do this.

It is a healing modality of balance: of the mind, body and spirit and of the male and female aspects in all of us. It helps to release negative emotions such as fear and anger, replacing them with love and compassion.

Especially good for children with ADHD and autism.

Video reading – Donna and Dermot on the Move

Me reading ‘Donna and Dermot on the Move’ – my children’s picture book on living in the present.

Reading from my children's picture book Donna and Dermot on the Move. It is about a girl and her dog and the happiness of living in the moment. Available on Amazon or a signed copy from me 🙂 A recent blog post from Michele Marie Liddle of about the book. Michele said: Donna and Dermot is a book about mindfulness for children. I think this is so important for children as sometimes being a Child especially in this age of Youtube, Facebook etc they have alot of technology not like when I was their age when my biggest thoughts where about playing in the woods with my friends.I know 5 year olds that have YouTube channels and are always wanting the latest phone. It always makes me think about when I was five if I had a phone who would be in my contact list, it would have been my mum and grandparents that would have been it. Today that isn’t the case these children have probably more contacts than me as they all have phones.So for someone to create a book that teaches children about being mindful is an amazing thing. This book is about Donna who is loving life in the countryside then her parents get a job in the city and once there all Donna can see is the negative, she gets so involved in the negative that she doesn’t realise the amazing new things that are going on around her. Donna comes up with a plan to get back to the countryside by saving her pennies to get on the train and back to her grandparents, now I wont ruin the ending for you but as an adult reading this book I even managed to take away from it an important message.No matter what we have in life that is going on good or bad, it is important that we sometimes take a moment to sit there and breathe. Actually see what is going on around you and it may actually make you realise that the important stuff, the stuff that really matters is with you always no matter where you go!I would also like to add that any child would love this story, Dermot is a lovely little character and the illustrations are beautiful. Perfect bedtime story.

Meeting Anita Moorjani

The awesome Anita Moorjani signing a book for me at her workshop in Bristol on 2 June. I gave her a signed copy of my picture book on mindfulness ‘Donna and Dermot on the Move‘. Enthralled by her idea of opening healing sanctuaries for those with chronic, long term illnesses.

Anita is a cancer survivor. She had a near death experience in 2006, and wrote about it in her best selling book ‘Dying to be Me’ published by Hay House. Here she chronicles her journey from what was classified as terminal cancer back to health.

Her second book ‘What if this is Heaven’ discusses changing the current paradigm of our conventional healthcare system to focus on health rather than illness. She is currently writing her third book.

Totnes Health and Wellbeing Festival this weekend

I will be at the Totnes Civic Hall this Saturday (19th May) for the Health and Wellness Festival.  If you would like a 30 minute Reiki healing session with me then this is the place. I will be there from 10 am to 5 pm and look forward to meeting you.

Reiki is a form of energy healing that can assist with anxiety, stress and pain.

I will also be offering Rahanni Celestial healing. This is similar to Reiki and balances the male and female aspects in all of us and opens up our heart centres to give and receive more love and compassion.

Come and hear me speak about both Reiki and Rahanni during the day.
