Still writing and meditating! I don’t think this book can be rushed.

In the meantime, here is an amusing picture of me!

Back on the website after some time offline. Great to be back!

January 2015

Happy New Year to all! Hope your meditation and yoga practices are going well.

I’m hoping to go on a short meditation retreat this year at some point. Also, to finish my new meditation book!

December 2014

Working on a new book. Also, meditating and doing yoga. Thank you to all of my great yoga teachers.

November 2014

Getting up very early in the morning to write.. another busy month for me!

October 2014

Yoga and meditation, yoga, eating, yoga, eating, yoga and meditation..

September 2014

Another busy month of course! I have been learning about the Diamond Sutta. Please don’t ask me to explain it as it’s far too complicated at this stage! 🙂

Thanks to everyone who has recently purchased “Ten Days to Daily Yoga” I hope it is helping you to develop and maintain a daily practice (or a regular practice). I am very grateful.

Thanks also to all of my lovely friends on Twitter and Facebook for spreading the dhamma and keeping me inspired to write.

August 2014

Another busy month for me. Thanks to everyone who has connected through Twitter or through my (not so often used) Facebook page!

This month I have been busy practicing. I’ve been lucky enough to take part in some great and inspiring yoga classes. I’m very thankful to the fab teachers that are helping my practice. Sending metta!

July 2014

I recently received two nice reviews for “Ten Days to Daily Yoga” on US and UK Amazon.

A few clients have been asking recently when I am going to get my freelance meditation and yoga writing up and running again. The answer is not yet – sorry about that. I’m really busy working on so many projects and the freelance writing is taking a back seat at the moment..

Meditation Motivation – A Quick Tour of Buddhism and 20 Easy Tips to Create a Daily Practice is now available at Page Foundry / Inktera and Scribd. Thanks Page Foundry and Scribd for stocking my little book!

June 2014

I’m also mid-way through the 30 day yoga challenge on OmCities.com which is going really well. The daily emails are keeping me going! I usually practice asanas about 4 days a week (and meditate on the other days) so I have ramped up my practice for this challenge which is a great experience.

I was delighted recently to see that Meditation Motivation – A Quick Tour of Buddhism has received two nice new reviews on UK Amazon. Thank you UK! I am very grateful.

May 2014

I’ve been a bit busy recently and it’s already 24th May!

Previously exclusive to Amazon, Ten Days to Daily Yoga has just become available from some other retailers. Here’s the full list:

Available in eBook and paperback from Amazon
Available in Nook at Barnes and Noble
Available in ebook at Kobo
And at iTunes

I have just started the 30 day yoga challenge at OmCities.com which will be an interesting experience as I usually have the odd rest day between practice. So doing yoga on a daily basis for 30 days will be something new and exciting! Watch this space as I will post an update in June!

OmCities are giving away one signed paperback copy of “Ten Days to Daily Yoga” as part of the yoga challenge!

I also recently did a Goodreads Giveaway for “Ten Days to Daily Yoga” which was really well subscribed. The winning paperback is in the post to the winner right now.

That’s all the news for now. If you want more regular updates, here I am on Twitter!

April 2014

April has been a busy month so far. I did an interview with OmCities.com (I have written about that in a blog post here and you can read the interview here) – Thank you to OmCities for taking an interest in me and my  little book!

Also, the paperback version of Ten Days to Daily Yoga has finally been released. It’s available through Amazon. I’m planning to do a blog post about that (when I get time..) as I’m really pleased with it and all of the hard work that went into it by the cover designer and formatter. (Yes, I used a professional formatter!)

My last bit of news for April is that Meditation Motivation – A Quick Tour of Buddhism and 20 Easy Tips to Create a Daily Practice is now available through Google Play!

March 2014

March already! The months are flying by.

“Ten Days to Daily Yoga” will soon be out in Paperback (the eBook has recently been released)

A Goodreads Giveaway for a paperback copy of “Meditation Motivation – A Quick Tour of Buddhism and 20 Easy Tips to Create a Daily Practice” has just finished and a copy is on it’s way to the winner!

I was really pleased and suprised to see that 703 people signed up to win! Either the book is popular, or people like free stuff 🙂

I am also thrilled that you can read about my new yoga book “Ten Days to Daily Yoga” on the excellent YOGA Venture website! I am so thankful to YOGA Venture for that.

Apart from that, I’ve had a busy month, made slightly less stressful by doing copious amounts of meditation and yoga!

Thank you to all of my friends on Twitter for sharing their practice and keeping me inspired to learn and sit.

Have a great rest of the month everyone!

With metta, Mia

January 2014

At the start of a new year, my gratitude goes out to all of my lovely freelance writing clients who commissioned me last year to write about the subjects that I love (yoga and meditation etc!)

Also to all of my friends on Twitter who share their practice and continue to support and inspire me to continue writing and tweeting about yoga and meditation.

I’m also very grateful to everyone who purchased one of my books last year.

Thank you and I look forward to more good times, work, fun and friendship this year!

Have a wonderful 2014!

December 2013

This month I have been concentrating on my daily meditation and yoga practice. It’s too easy to allow life to get in the way, so I ensure that I prioritise these daily activities! My next book is about yoga, which I have been practicing for years but have not yet written about (at least not in a book of my own). So I’m working on that, together with keeping up with my freelance writing.

November 2013

I have had an article on yoga and relaxation published in the November 2013 issue of heartlight magazine. You can find it on page 32!

October 2013

This month has started off busy as usual! I’m working on my new book, which I hope to release by the end of the year. We’ll see how I get on!

I have been keeping up with my daily meditation and yoga practice, which has been helping to clarify my mind for all this writing!

If you’re into Vipassana meditation, you may be sharing my sadness about Goenkaji’s recent passing. Goenkaji (S.N. Goenka) brought Vipassana to the masses and thanks to him, thousands upon thousands of people have benefited from his kind and wise teachings.

Vipassana retreats are donation only, if you haven’t tried one, you might want to look into it – and if you do, then I recommend that Dhamma.org is the place to go to sign up for a retreat near to you. I am so thankful to Goenkaji, because going on a 10-day Vipassana retreat really ramped up my meditation and was such a benifical experience.

September 2013

September was busy with Twitter, Facebook, writing and research, not to mention fitting in my daily yoga and meditation practice! Thankfully, I have all of my lovely Twitter and Facebook friends to help keep me on the cushion (and mat!). They really do teach me so much and help to keep me up-to-date with the latest goings on in meditation and Buddhism! Thank you to all those who share their practice!

August 2013

August has been a busy month of writing and researching my next book which I hope to publish this year. In addition to that and my everyday life activities I have also been busy doing some small writing commissions for ethical / yoga / health businesses through my page on Fiverr!

July 2013

This month has started off on a very good note with my discovery of a lovely review written by meditation teacher Viramitra. Viramitra is not only an ordained meditation teacher, but is also the inventor of the Kindseat meditation seat, so I am particularly honored that Viramitra has read my book and taken the time to review it! You can read the review on Amazon.co.uk. 

June 2013

In June, I updated the settings on my Paper.li newsletter so that it draws meditation news from more sources. The newsletter comes out every Sunday and I always Tweet a link to it (or rather, that happens automatically for me when it’s published each week!)

I also joined Facebook, with a personal profile and a page. Now I just have to figure out how to use them! Please make friends with me or ‘like’ me over there!

May 2013

May was a busy month for writing, with some small writing assignments in addition to me working on two new books. They won’t be ready for a while as there’s still a lot of writing and research to do. Watch this space!
