We Are All The Same Underneath 🙏


This weekend we had some members of Initiatives of Change International come to stay and spent much time discussing the meaning of life and how we progress into the future.
The movement was led for a number of years by the previous owner of our house, Peter Howard, with its roots going back to the 1930’s and a link to Alcoholics Anonymous. When Dominic and I found out about this coincidence a few years ago we felt we had been led to this group and began to get involved. The groups founder Frank Buchman and Howard were both Christian and this weekend I prayed as well as meditated, and had my eyes opened to our similarities….

What struck me over and over again was how Dominic and I as Buddhists have the exact same views as our Christian cousins. The only differences in the conversations were some of the language, with everything that we were all saying a complimentary mix of flavours creating an amazing recipe for the future.

Ultimately we are all the same underneath.
We all want to feel happy and healthy.
We all want to help others wherever we can.
We all want to serve humankind in our own unique way.
It was a beautiful meeting of minds, with the same one word being repeated over and over again from everyone in the room:

Living from truth.
Basing your life on truth.
Breathing, believing, speaking, acting in truth.
We all have it in common and it doesn’t matter what religion or non-religion you call that. It is living from the heart; the giving and receiving of love; being honest with yourself about where you want to go in life.

This weekend there was a deep and beautiful spiritual bond that went beyond labels and specific beliefs; it was more a meeting of intentions, and it opened my heart up even more. So get out of your head and the details, and into your heart and how you want to feel; live from that place xx

Member Quote Of The Day.

In this section you will read something that has been said by one of the Quantum Sobriety Online Programme members over on the very lively private forum:

18 months ago today I had my last drink. At the end of January of this year I had 8 months of sobriety under my belt, but I didn’t feel free. Stopping drinking had thrown up all sorts of feelings and questions about myself, along with the realisation that whilst I used alcohol as a crutch to become who I thought I should be, I didn’t actually like that person very much. The self-confidence I thought I’d had, had evaporated and I knew I needed some tools to work through all of this. I still felt like I was missing out, and I knew if this carried on I’d never stick to my sobriety. Amazingly, 2 days before the programme started, I came across QS via Jo’s Webinar on Soberistas and signed up. In the period since I’ve been part of QS I have had my wedding, honeymoon, 25 year college reunion dinner as well as some health investigations. I can honestly say that I doubt that I’d have been able to stay sober through these things if it wasn’t for the accountability, support and tools that QS has given me and the strong desire to still be part of this amazing community. Thank you

QS UK and Ireland Tour.

 15th – 27th January 2018 
All dates and venues have now been confirmed
Tickets links below

For two weeks in January I will be travelling the length and breadth of the UK, and popping over to Ireland, to deliver donation-based workshops and meditations.

Learn how YOU can quantum jump into the reality where you were NEVER addicted, and walk out of the workshop as that person.
It’s time to take your power back

Strategically the towns I am heading to are where the QS Guides live, and they will join me on the day to talk about their own journey to FREEDOM in sobriety. Some of the guides will then be launching their own QS monthly groups which will begin around the country in February 2018.

This is a DONATION-BASED event as we are so excited to get this information to the public at large, with the option to pay as little as £1.85 (inclusive of Eventbrite taxes and VAT) or to donate as much money for your ticket as you want, which will go towards the cost of the tour.  

Each separate event has it’s own page on Eventbrite, so click on the town nearest you to take you to that page and all of the information.
