The last 4 years I have meditated every day. Previous to that I had meditated form time to time, “when I had time”. About 6 years ago in response to a colleague’s question about how my day was going, I found myself saying, ‘good, my day is always better when I meditate”. Still I did not meditate every day. Then at the beginning of 2014, I decided to try meditating every day. Why not make every day a better day?
Here is a guided mediation by Lori Granger that has proved poplular in our weekly Qigong class in Horsham:
In my Qigong class today we had a short discussion about the main differences between Tai Chi and Qigong. The consensus from those who do both, was that Tai Chi encourages more Fire (heart) energy, while Qigong encourages more Water (kidney) energy. For me it is the balance that is important
Qigong as well as encouraging core strength, flexibility, balance, resilience, fortitude and patience is also a way to explore our relationship both with ourselves and the Tao. Here is the first verse from the Tao te Ching by Lao-Tzu.
This is taken from a book by Dr Wayne Dyer: Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life, which is a book I really enjoyed reading, and one I refer back to regularly.
Recently I have seen a couple of cases of people who came for help with specific fears. One was fear of flying in an adult, and one fear of dogs in a child. I am happy to report that both cases have responded in a first class way. Although in the homeopathic literature there are many references to remedies with fears, I have rarely been asked to treat specific fears. It makes me think that my practice could help more people who have specific fears. The fear of dogs came on after a bad experience with a dog, and the fear of flying was unrelated to a bad flying experience.
There is no shortage of villains in the world. Psychopaths – domestic and national – whalers, toxic waste dumpers, global eavesdroppers, billionaire tax avoiders and their army of accountants – all well worth campaigning against with the aim of getting them banged up or forced to cough up.

Critical report on homeopathy called into question
A new website has been launched that questions the conclusions of the House of Commons Science and Technology (S&T) committee’s “evidence check” report on homeopathy. For journalists and public alike www.homeopathyevidencecheck.org offers an opportunity to fully understand the nature of this controversial report and to reach a more balanced conclusion.
It is truly remarkable the level of ignorance involved in this debate, with critics of homeopathy showing their true love of mediocrity, conformism and brain-dead enforcement of orthodoxy (dogma) – with enthusiasm that would make an Inquisitor blush. Read More
Many thanks to all of you who have taken action over the potential threat to the existing supply routes of homeopathic medicines in the UK. The good news is that representatives from the profession have met with the Department of Health and MHRA and have been assured that the authorities continue to be in favour of patient choice and access to homeopathic medicines as it currently stands, and recognise the potential impact to patients, practitioners and homeopathic pharmacies of any changes to the way the act is enforced.

There is still much work to do in improving the provision for access of homeopathy to all of the UK population. You can help! Please click here to tell your story of how you consider homeopathy to have helped you.
