Calm in Chaos

Calm in Chaos started on 20th March 2020 as the Coronavirus chaos started to impact us in a big way, all around the world.


Each week we create the space to step back and access our inner calm, creativity and resourcefulness. HERE is what we are doing - it's experimental and will adapt over time, just like what is happening in the world. The intent to spread calm (rather than the virus or panic).


These sessions and recordings are set up as 'pay if you can and found it valuable'. You are very welcome to watch and join the sessions for free if you cannot pay, given current circumstances.
