Bonus Episode - Safe Haven Visualisation Meditation
Join me on this guided visualisation meditation where you will be creating a safe space in your mind that you can visit whenever you want or need to. Learning a new language often causes us to feel stressed, anxious, frustrated and very nervous at times so it’s important we look after our well being, using tools to calm our minds and nerves so that we can alleviate these uncomfortable sensations. This guided meditation was created by Teal Swan. Find a quiet place to spend twenty minutes where you won’t be disturbed and let your imagination be as creative as it wants to be!

Episode 16 - The death of Prince Philip, insights of the British Mind about the British Monarchy
Following the death of the queen’s husband, Prince Philip, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, my two friends and I have an informal chat about what this news means to us individually. Some people adore the Royal Family and some people feel differently, and an event as significant as this one can be a good opportunity to ask ourselves how we feel about the Monarchy and realise our personal values as human beings.
