Starting Friday April 5th 2024 I will be starting some new in person meditation classes at the Albany Creek scout hut. These are casual classes ($10 per person) that you can just turn up for – but it would be great if you could register your interest please: ann@marvellousmeditations.com The classes are very relaxed, seated […]

Happy talk…

A friend recently shared a letter – apparently written by Sir Richard Branson – about happiness. I say ‘apparently’ because I know so many things shared on social media supposedly written or endoresed by someone famous are often nothing to do with that person.

But ironically I read this on my phone scrolling through my Facebook feed. I noticed how low the battery was and realised I’d been scrolling longer than I

Where’s Nobbi…?

Earlier this week people around the world celebrated the Lunar or Chinese New Year, and this year is the Year of the Dragon. Which seems to be a very aptly named year so far. From the beginning of February we’ve been visited by a couple of dragons. No – not the fire breathing ones, but
