A Poem to Help Parents & Teachers Broach the Subject of Grief with Children

Image
I've had a few requests to write about the loss of a loved one, dying & grief to help grown ups broach the subject in a loving & mindful way with children, so I have written this poem called: 'On the day that Mummy died.' ♡♡♡  I run a children's story company, writing alternative endings to the things that concern children the most, as well as poems and stories about the things that can be tricky to talk about ...   www.thesleepingstoryteller.com

International Women's Week in Video ...

Image
Oh my Goodness me! What a celebration it has been. International Women's Week started on Saturday for me, when I won an Equality Award for my Radio Series 'Remarkable Women'. So many AMAZING women, totally inspiring & a honour to be a tiny part of it. Here's a 60 second insight into the Event. Then, my second Radio Series  launched with my Special Guest Cheryl Bass & music composed by Kate Strudwick on Sunday March 8th ... 'Remarkable Women' International Women's Day   On Sunday night I decided to experiment with sensuality & mantra ... making this little video. And tonight, Tuesday, I went to my first ever Women's Business Networking Event I AM WOMAN - and the Director, Cheryl Bass, had me up to do a talk - I fell apart, my legs went like jelly, but I am so glad I did it. Thank you Cheryl. I met some AMAZING women & unbelievable contacts. Who knows what the rest of the week may bring! If you like my

REMARKABLE WOMEN: OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGES OF BEING A HEARING IMPAIRED RADIO PRODUCER

Image
It's been so interesting producing my own Radio Series as a hearing impaired person. I learnt a lot on the last series, when I spent too long trying to do things in the way a hearing person might, which took an awful amount of ear energy, ear energy that I just don't have anymore - so for this series, I have tried something different, to explore whether or not it is possible to be more kind to my disability needs, and still make great radio for the listener. The series is called Remarkable Women & launches on International Women's Day 8th March at 7pm with Oystermouth Radio . It feels really important to launch on this day because I have been bestowed a very great honour indeed, by the  Women's Equality Network, who have made me an honorary member of the Top 100 Women Pioneers in Wales for my work in the Arts, Health & Innovation. I can't quite believe it. This is an all time list & so, I'm in great company - there are suffragettes, polit

NEW RADIO SHOW: Conversations about the Human Spirit & Well Being

Image
Oh my days, my new Radio Series just launched at Oystermouth Radio and will air every Sunday at 7.00pm for the next 6 weeks. I am so thrilled.  I feel so blessed to have such inspirational guests who will be joining me, women who have moved me by their dedication to help others through their own practice. It feels important to create a platform for them to share their story because it may help others listening to think of new ways of lifting their own spirit. Above all things, this is what makes the long hours of filming and editing worthwhile. I have recorded the entire series on my phone and a tiny hand held tascam recorder. Despite my hearing impairments, I have managed to edit the radio shows and podcasts by myself, allowing space for the women to simply 'be' and truly shine. It is my deepest desire that everyone who listens, is able to take something from it for themselves. Dates for your diary ... every Sunday at 7pm from 24th November onwards - full detai
