London - United Kingdom

Hello from London! I’m sending positive vibes to all readers during a time of fantastic opportunities for us to breathe deeply, take stock and possibly change our future pathways. I moved from Melbourne to London in 1994. I completed an MA and MBA at Monash, and Graduate Diploma of Finance at another university.

I wrote down years ago a wonderful statement from Alain de Botton about seeing our thoughts as butterflies and quickly capturing them by writing down these illusive gems. The illusiveness is due to casting our intuition aside, in favour of the more rational and analytical approach from our toolbox of life.

Furlough time has enabled me to self reflect and to go over my piles of copious notes and yearly grand life plans filed away. For me, balancing the Wheel of Life has always been a challenge. My gems of recurring insight are currently: nature, environment, community, mental health and meditation.

To this end, I enrolled in a Shinrin-Yoku (Forest Bathing) Diploma course and Feng Shui, to combine both subjects with my love of interior design. I also registered a new domain name and have started an Instagram account @ecoforestbathing  As I am in my 60s and have had a portfolio of activities throughout my career, especially since living in London, I look on to the next phase with much excitement.

This period of enforced self isolation has filled me with gratitude. Time to reflect on the impact we have on the environment, and to identify what we can do as individuals to change the landscape. I welcome you to connect with me as I embark on this new branch of my life. I would love to hear your experiences as well.

If you are in London, or intend to be in London, please contact me and join me for a complimentary guided meditation in Hyde Park. Yours, Judith Anglin Abraham
