Bless you Gentle Reader and Welcome to your first Monday Morning Moments of Calm.
I’m so glad you are here, taking time out of your busy schedule to read what’s on offer. Hi, I’m Ntathu Allen I was delighted and honoured when Ceri asked me to join FabafterFity as your Inner Well Being/Meditation Expert. Not sure if I would call myself an “expert” yet I’m thrilled –and nervous—to be here.
A Bit About Ntathu – Who Am I?
For as long as I can remember writing has formed a core of my personal journey . Through a series of unhappy “life situations” including the untimely early deaths of my dear brother John (1997) and close cousin Sherry (1995) I found meditation.
Like you, I’ve had my fair share of life’s ups and down- juggling the demands of a highly pressurised job as a Probation Officer with caring for my then young family, a miscarriage, financial debts, and a long drawn out divorce all took their toll. Learning to meditate and then yoga I found courage, strength and space to fall apart, heal and rebuild my life. In 2003, I left my young daughters at home with my now ex-husband and my father and travelled to India to train as a Yoga Teacher. The experience had such a major impact on me, in 2004 I resigned from my stressful job as Probation Officer and set up as a self-employed Yoga Teacher. Since then I have weathered the joys and challenges of running my own business, divorce, debts and of course being a mum—which is a full time job in itself!
