Connected, Mindful and Compassionate

What Do I Mean By ‘Spirituality’?
I like to use a definition that works well in education and healthcare.
Spirituality is everyone’s natural connection
with the wonder and energy of life;
and the instinct to explore that experience and its meaning.
Spirituality affirms that personal development is about the growth of compassion and consciousness, heart and mind — not material success and status, but love in action.

A genius. Finally someone who separates new age nonsense from spiritual reality. Caroline Myss
A good person with much experience and wisdom to impart, an excellent teacher “who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.” Church Times
"I learnt so many valuable and insightful lessons from you and will carry your words of wisdom with me forever. In fact during a very challenging day with my sister, daughter and ex husband yesterday I managed to use and apply the techniques you shared to avoid a potentially explosive situation. Remaining relaxed, positive, calm with an open heart full of love and asserting my own space. The outcome would have been so different before your workshop and would most probably have resulted in yet another massive meltdown. But it didn't and I am so much more healthier emotionally and mentally which feels bloody awesome!!!" - Vicky, mother and care support worker
"Dearest William — Thank you. I have been reflecting that it is nearly 2 years since I attended your Endorphin Effect workshop in London. That 2 years has been a period of great changes for me - I like to think a period of spiritual growth. You have been a major factor in that growth and I would like to thank you for your instruction and guidance, your commitment to future change in our society, your deep caring and compassion, your huge holding presence which has helped us through stormy emotional waters at times, and many other things too." Stuart Kempster, Medical Doctor
"I wanted to thank you for creating such a wonderfully safe space at the weekend where we could explore so many new ideas and concepts. Saturday seemed to be on a more emotional level and Sunday a more mental one but I loved all of it - the meditations, excercises, insights, laughter, the stories that people shared within the group and your boundaries and structure that were so carefully woven throughout the whole event. It was magical." — Rebecca Martin, Therapist
"Thanks for a great workshop, William. It rocked. I have been to many workshops and trainings over the years, but yours was the best!" — Rosalyn Chambers, Yoga Teacher.
"I wanted to take the time to thank you for the most wonderful Masterclass for Empaths. This was my first workshop with you and I loved every minute. Your words were inspiring, helpful and made sense of my own situation. You kept it real and you were sensitive to all those around you.... Thank you for what I felt was a life changing day in so many ways for me. The day for me was awesome." — AJC, Somerset
"Would you like to wake up on a tropical beach or a gorgeous mountaintop every morning? Be accompanied throughout your day by your beloved or a very good friend? Feel like putting up your legs on a deckchair or curling up in your warm bed all day? Sorry, can't do that for you - but here's a very close second best: The Endorphin Effect!" — Patrick Herzog, business man and tour guide
"I came to your Endorphin Effect workshop in Birmingham recently, but was only able to stand for one day. Amazing as my usual limit is 2 hours maximum! I was very sorry not to attend on the Sunday, as I knew you would be talking about negative energies, pain etc. However, I am now in possession of both your book and CD, and finding it easier to concentrate and put myself in the right frame of mind.
I have never been to anything like this before, as I'm not so much a sceptic, as distrustful of the motives of the teachers, and don't want to be lining the pockets of someone with a message they've thought up just to get on the latest bandwagon. I know, I'm a cynic! Anyway, William, I was very moved when I met you. Your method has changed me. I am a more grounded person with a lot more respect and love for myself, and particularly for the bits that don't work. What a very powerful thought - to tell the failing areas that it's OK and to nurture them with love. THANK YOU, THANK YOU AND THANK YOU AGAIN.
I trust that when our paths next cross I can walk up to you and shake your hand, without the encumbrance of any crutches. — With love and a smiling heart." Maureen B, school administrator
