“I started the Big Peace blog in 2007 because I was sick of setting goals to get me more/better/more. I wanted to get off the treadmill and appreciate what I had, I wanted to ‘find’ some sense of inner peace. Well, what a journey it’s been. I thought the road to peace would be all about angels singing harmoniously in the background as I meditated on my navel. No such luck! It’s been a journey inwards that has made me question the very cornerstones of my life.
It’s required me to be very brave – to face my demons, to live more, to love more. In the past two and half years, I’ve learnt how the brain works and how to train it for inner peace, have interviewed some of the world’s greatest gurus, have left my husband after being married for 16 years and got a dog. As I say, my journey to ‘find’ my missing peace has been an eventful one.
And finally I got ‘there’, to find I hadn’t lost it in the first place. I just had to tap my heels together and I was ‘home’.
I’ve finally realised The Big Peace is not a destination but a choice every second of every day. It’s actually a very simple (if not always easy) daily practice.
I’ve just written a whole book on it The Big Peace, published by Hay House September 2009. I’ve created a 12 week programme for you to try out 90 ways to inner peace. Hopefully, a handful will really work for you and you can start to create your own daily practice for peace. Good luck on your journey.”
