Nan’s Ginger Cake 
 
I loved my Nan’s ginger cake - she had a magical jar of stemmed ginger that made it taste exotic! Hard to get in the 1960’s. You can add crystallised ginger if that easier to find. 
 
The recipe is rich and light at the same time, unlike the shop bought ones that were always a-bit claggy!

The world has been turned upside down and our assumptions about ouraelves and the world have beeen severly challenged. One of our assumptions on a global and personal level is that we are in charge. I run my life, we run the world. Well I am afraid the truth is some thing different, more scary and liberating at the same time.  
On our recent online meditation retreats and online mindfulness courses I have been reading out a poem by my teacher called Life is King. You can read it below and let me know your responses.

As time goes on and more and more of us embrace virtual learning we too are turning many of our courses to work online. We now have online mindfulness courses which people can join from anywhere in the world. These are live and interactive with myself and work very well. We also run online meditation retreats and these have been one of the big surprises as they are the most popular of all. These online Meditation retreats are run over a Saturday morning betweeen 10:00 - 13:00 and have a very simple format.
