I got a very polite email yesterday from a man asking why my books are so expensive. Tis a fair question. When you consider that 3 of my books: Shaolin Chi Kung – $37 Smiling From The Heart – $37 Qigong356 – $17 Are currently only available in electronic PDF format, yes, their prices are […]

I received this email over the weekend: “Studying and practicing under you has in many ways revolutionised my life. I am not sure if I could have survived the last almost three years without your input into my life. I feel like you are my friend, my confident, and my mentor.” Steven Shorrock As you […]

The Sunday Quote: “… all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There’s no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.” Bill Hicks I couldn’t sleep last night. I was tired, but I was wired. I […]

The Saturday Quote: “Use it or lose it.” Jimmy Conners Sure, the use it or lose it quote could probably be attributed to quite a few different people. But I like Jimmy Conners. I remember my mum being a hardcore tennis fan and seeing Bjorn Bjork, John Mcenroe, Ivan Lendl and Jimmy Conners all slugging […]

This should be interesting… I usually take an hour to write, edit and publish each Qigong Daily. I know, you wouldn’t think it takes that long right? Well today I’ve got 25 minutes. How come? Well Clarabella left the house at 07:15 to start her early relief shift at Newton Abbott Library. And that means […]

I get a lot email. Too much to read. These days I only check and respond to client and customer email. I mean those guys pay for my bread and butter. Everyone else, well… It’d be nice to chew the breeze and shoot the fat but I don’t have time. And time is the most […]

Once upon a time there was a man called The Lurker. He was used to being on the outside looking in. Days became weeks and weeks became months. And always The Lurker watched. He watched the others having fun. Overcoming pain and illness… Growing fitter, stronger and healthier… Toning up and creating lives worth loving… […]

I hated rugby at school. I remember being kinda excited the first time I got to do it. I got to wear a special shirt I’d never owned before and I was full of dreams of how rugged and tough I was going to be. 10 minutes later, laying on the floor gasping for breath […]

The Sunday Quote: “You can never learn less; you can only learn more. The reason I know so much is because I have made so many mistakes.” Buckminster Fuller Here’s a list of mistakes I remember I’ve made on the ZEN+ journey: Practiced Qigong in the disabled toilets on the top floor of the UPS […]

The Saturday Quote: “In spite of my faults, my dog thinks I’m great. I just have to try and live up to his expectations.” You know, I spent 25 minutes this morning online trying to find a suitable quote to share with you today. What with it being Louis 6 birthday I thought a cool […]

An anomaly in my buttock region

September 12, 2014

I‘ve been so busy working on the research for the ZEN+ book I haven’t been doing anything interesting. So this morning I sat in my Woffice rummaging through my current notebook. And found this gem… On my way back from the USA I had to clear security at Washington Dulles airport. I took my belt […]

Nelson Mandela Hid My Book

September 11, 2014

Yesterday at 10:30 I dropped Clarabella off at the Careers Advice centre in Exeter. Armed with a satchel full of notes, a pad and a pen, I headed for the nearest coffee dealer. Not being familiar with this part of Exeter I opted for the first place I came across. And to my delight it […]

The Animating Principles of ZEN+

September 10, 2014

A very interesting and life changing event happened to me 24 years ago. One which started me clearly down the path I find myself on today. Me and 5 friends were walking along a footpath in Bradford. It was chucking out time in the pubs and new to the city we were keen to hit […]

Six Weeks of Summer

September 8, 2014

Ollie goes back to school today after the 6 weeks summer holiday. There’s a strange atmosphere in the house. Six weeks of lay ins, unstructured days and endless play have come to a pause. I think Clarabella is feeling Ollie’s return to school more than I am. Before I got out of bed this morning […]

This turns me into
a homicidal maniac…

September 7, 2014

Can’t remember the last time I went to bed at 3am. But last night, thanks to some neighbours having a party, that’s what happened. Loud music is like my Kryptonite. It turns me into a homicidal manic if I’m not careful. How come? Well, I simply can’t understand the mindset of people who think it’s […]
