I have spent many years in formal education, and also learnt so much from the Eastern and African Wisdom Traditions. In 2014, I was awarded a PhD in Mindfulness and Education - the first in Africa, apparently! While I appreciate academic rigour, I am more at home in the role of researcher-practitioner, exploring the benefit of these practices in daily life. Nothing gives me more joy than supporting others to develop their own, life-enhancing, contemplative practices.
Inside each of us there is a noble heart. When we clear away all that blocks it, this heart can change the world.

- Sun, 19 SepKumba Lodge, Praia TofoSteven Heyman and Lucy Draper-Clarke are teaching together again, at the beautiful Kumba Lodge in Tofo. This Mozambican adventure will take you through the Five Koshas, from the strong to the subtle layers of the body-mind.
It has become clear to me that Lucy has the intelligence, depth of education, and natural teaching qualities which mark her as someone who would be able to help others.
As a facilitator, Lucy is superb. She is knowledgeable, gentle and caring with a calm demeanour and soothing voice, together with honesty and humour with regard to her own experience.
Lucy is a warm, wise and wonderful teacher, embodying fully the heart-mind connections she gently encourages in others. What she offers comes directly from her heart, enabling her to provide exactly what is needed spontaneously in the moment.
