*/ When humanity sets out to create unity the results are awesome. In fact when you look at the statistics, 99% of the world is at peace! Humanity has made stunning progress towards building unity, collaboration and health for all in the last 100 years... and when we build on this positivity we help it grow.  So when we hear news of suffering, terrorism or poverty, perhaps the greatest thing we can do in response is to add positivity to the world.  Here are just a few ideas for you - and feel free to add your own in the comments at the bottom of the page.   1. Give peace a chance Go to a time when you felt completely happy, fulfilled and at peace with yourself and the world. Re-live that feeling as fully as you can. Let it fill your body and mind. BE peace. Direct that peace... more

How often do we tell ourselves we'll keep a daily meditation practice going, but it’s so easy to simply fall out of the habit. Maybe you've had an illness or there's a change of routine like the summer holidays or at Christmas, or another life event we can’t control. We might just be too busy or stressed or upset to keep our practice going. No matter what the reasons for quitting meditation were, here are some simple tips to get you back in the groove.   1. Keep it simple
Our minds can exaggerate how complicated it is to restart our practice, so we keep putting off doing it. One way to beat that natural resistance is by making it absolutely simple – just light a candle. Sit for 10 breaths. Just sit on my meditation cushion for 1 minute. The more achievable and easy that first... more

In today's world we can often feel scattered, not able to find clarity or any certainty in our life? There may be nothing particularly traumatic or stressful in our immediate circumstances, but we just feel unsettled and unsure of our direction in life. In itself, this can create stress. The grounding breath will help bring steadiness to your mind, giving you greater clarity and certainty. If you practice the grounding breath regularly, you may begin to find stresses of yesterday no longer hassling you today. Grounding breath meditation Sit with your spine upright and in a comfortable position and relaxed. If you are sitting in a chair, keep your legs parallel; feet flat on the floor or on a rolled up mat. Close your eyes and for a few breaths, become very interested in your breath as... more

Enjoy this free Sky meditation.  It's from the Dru Meditation dvd. How easy it is to lose our perspective on life and some situation or issue can grow out of all proportion. We can get bogged down in the detail. The Dru Sky meditation helps you regain your perspective on life, broaden your vision, lift your eyes from a situation in which you are stuck, and see the larger perspective. Use it when you want to regain your enjoyment of life and all of those great things that are really important to you.     Enjoy! Andrew, Patricia and the Dru team

Yes, autumn is here again. We so often approach autumn with mixed feelings – it’s a bit like marmite – you either love it or you hate it. On the one hand, it’s the romantic season of ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’, with beautiful colours in the trees, harvesting fruit, warm evenings and beautiful skies.  On the other, it signals the end of the summer and therefore the onset of the colder winter months – and so can be depressing time for many of us. Dru meditation is one of the most effective ways of keeping you feeling cheerful, no matter what the season (or the weather!)  When we move from summer into autumn, the energy changes from being very yang (male, hot, strong, fiery) to become more yin (female, soft, wet, colder).  As the energy changes outside us, we can use meditation to help... more
