Calm in a storm

Producing a mindfulness magazine amid the most anxiety-ridden year I have ever lived through was beautifully ironic. We gave a digital magazine to the world at a time when nobody felt calm or secure. 

Writing words of encouragement felt like quite the challenge, yet nothing gave me peace like having the luxury of working from my garden during a heatwave and seeing our tiny team over Zoom calls, stretching across the UK and even as far as Estonia.  

The power of words and the resilience of magazine makers are unstoppable in any climate; our storytelling remains a necessity.
