This will also give us a chance to explore the area of ‘breadth and focus’ in meditation, as well as generally develop and maybe even flex the great...

For these events I wrote a daily (or almost daily) article on Wildmind’s blog, accompanied by guided meditations.

When Mark joined the team, we...
