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.
