My Personal Interests
I love gardening, walking in nature and doing pottery.
Throughout the last 40 years, I’ve practised meditation, mainly in the tradition of Non-Duality.
"Non-duality is a translation of the Sanskrit word 'Advaita', which simply means 'not two' and points to the essential oneness (wholeness, completeness, unity) of life, a wholeness which exists here and now."
'Non -Duality' is not attached to any religious belief.
