Episode 17 Oak Tree Meditation
In the fifth episode in this Tree Meditation Series, Simon goes to Ladywell a sacred grove of trees beside an ancient well in West Oxfordshire. He tells us about a personal journey he made with Oak in 2020 when the world was seemingly falling apart and explains how its symbolic qualities of strength and endurance helped him to change his life. Meditation with Oak is recommended when you face a difficult decision or need support in making hard life choices. This episode was recorded on a windy day in mid May and the sound of the wind rushing through the ancient Oak tree is all part of the natural atmosphere Simon loves to create making this podcast.

Episode 14 Ash Tree Healing Meditation
Number 3 in the Tree Meditation Series is different, as this time we are connecting to our hearts and sending out love and healing energy to the Ash trees. Ash is under threat due to Ash Die-Back fungal disease and older trees are being culled leaving the orphan younger trees without their parents to feed vital nutrients through the wood wide web. Together with a group of healers and compassionate people we have created a healing beacon in the forest specifically for healing the Ash trees. This meditation is an important part of this healing work as it widens out the scope to the group to other like-minded tree lovers who want to help the ancient Ash tree. Every time to play this meditation and send out your innate healing power you are preserving the lineage of Ash trees. Please share with your friends.

Episode 11: VortexHealing
I am a VortexHealing practitioner and wanted to give people an insight into this powerful form of Devine energy healing, so rather than talking to myself I went to interview the person that inspired me, Simon Tandree of Embodied Stillness.  What follows is an insightful and fascinating chat about what you can expect when you come for a treatment. We also look behind the curtain as Simon explains what it's like for him channeling VortexHealing. I am sure you can appreciate it is a rare thing for a practitioner to be open about their own experience. Once you have listened the chances are you'll want to book a VortexHealing session for yourself. Treatments with me cost £55 for around two hours. Please email me at

Episode 4 Pilgrimage with Kurt Rowe
Literally a rambling chat with Kurt as he walks 140 miles along the Pilgrims Way from Winchester to Canterbury. He was inspired to make this journey across Hampshire, Surrey and Kent by reading a chapter of Rupert Sheldrake's book Science and Spiritual Practices about Pilgrimage and Holy Places. Recorded on day one of the two-week journey, our conversation covers various aspects of going on a pilgrimage in the UK today including the health benefits of long-distance walking, the energetics of the landscape and how suffering can lead to spiritual realisation. Simon stayed over to record a follow-up episode on day 2, which will be published shortly. He plans to return to walk the last section into Canterbury and gather Kurt's reflections on his epic walk. Apologies for the wind noise during the first 5 minutes of the interview.
