Mindful Hypnosis in Somerset

The times in which we are living now can be extremely stressful, we never seem to have enough time to do anything and often, it appears as if we are chasing our tails and getting nowhere fast. Hypnotherapy could be the answer…

The knock on effects from this can soon manifest and before we know it, we can feel very drained, tired, almost negated in fact and it can be at these times, where we can reach for a crutch, seemingly to help us through, yet these vices and habits we pick up are doing us no good at all, we all know that, yet often it can seem impossible to give them up.

Whether you would like to quit smoking, maybe you feel you would like to lose some weight, or just would like to feel happier and more positive about yourself and the life you lead, call me and I can help you.

If you have reached this understanding and are determined, then I can help you to achieve the above mentioned and many more ailments, vices, habits and personal to you problems which you feel you would like to combat and overcome. Once you have reached the point where you wish to confront and overcome these, ring me for an initial free consultation and then visit me near Yeovil, guide you into and through a deep and relaxing meditation, then whist under Hypnosis, I can suggest ways in which to stop, basically removing any habits that you feel you would like removed, replacing them with mindfulness, wellbeing and a positive outlook, all of which will aid you in a healthy lifestyle.

Hypnotherapy has been practiced for many centuries with great success and whilst there is no actual date of origin, it is known that the Ancient Egyptians practiced this art and can be seen in many of their paintings and etchings.

Providing an overall holistic and alternative therapy, Hypnosis really can let you leave behind and quit many habits that you feel are restricting you in your life, leaving you healthier with a great sense of achievement and pride.

This non-invasive therapy is highly regarded across the world and is used in many cultures as well for all types of situations.

From quitting smoking, maybe you get nervous at exam and test time, you could feel you are over eating, whatever you feel is a problem to you can be overcome and once you realise you want to face it, you are halfway there.

How he went from battling a heroin addiction to being a SHAMAN

John Awen, 48, from Yeovil, Somerset was addicted to heroin for 11 years. During this time, he went to jail for shoplifting and driving without a licence. He said he quit drugs after having two heart attacks and being stabbed in attack. John has transformed his lifestyle, and runs a vegan mentoring programme


Calling meat eaters rapists and slave masters is wrong

A Somerset spokesman for the Vegan Society says shock tactics to shame people into giving up meat risk harming the cause.


John Anwen, who lives near Yeovil, says intimidation of meat eaters is not going to gain vegans new friends or change eating habits.


He condemned techniques adopted by some campaigners who have branded meat eaters as rapists and slave masters.


He advocates peaceful lobbying and education to encourage more people to give up meat.




Shamans have been around since the dawning of time. Wise Men & Women who communicate and understand the Universal laws of life, death and the constant cycle of life.

Often revered and frowned upon, simply because to be and live as a Shaman, means to connect with the unseen forces of this world and other realms, rather than bow down and adhere to another’s indoctrinations and teachings. Basically a Shaman will, for the most part, work alone and in doing so, they connect on a much deeper and intrinsic level with the ways of the world, almost shunning the enforced ways of others.

Throughout history the Shaman has been used and called upon for a vast array of answers that aid people and the communities they live within, from assisting in the birthing of new-born children, seeking new places of settlement, walking onto battlefields to quell the fighting, communing with the deceased to receive clarity, answers and insights. Along with an infinite amount of other qualities, the Shaman knows, senses and feels the natural ebb and flow of life, death and away from the distraction of others and their rulings, is free to access many realms in the quest to acknowledge the questions and answers that will aid them greatly in their understanding and comprehension of life and all that is contained within and without this world and universe.

Many esoteric groups and beliefs, follow teachings and rulings that have been put in place by others, no different really from the mainstream churches that so many strive to break free from, yet unfortunately they still end up bowing down to another’s beliefs and often follow without question or reason.

We can only truly gain wisdom, clarity and knowledge by breaking free from the harsh ways of the dogmatic system which many are enslaved to and fight to hold onto, endlessly following and obeying, hearing without listening and forming part of the endless flock of Yes Men & Women.

Having never been able to follow and adhere to another’s way of life I set out from an early age to seek answers to a multitude of questions I had going around in my head. Throughout my life I have tried to follow, simply because it is so much easier and you don’t have to think. Each time I have had to walk away and return to my own way of life, seek my own answers and understand life, death and the world around me on a more natural, deeper and real sensing and awareness.

All of the answers I have been seeking and still seek are within me and from this understanding, through deep soul journeying and transcendental meditation I know I will find them and have them answered.

From communing with dead people and talking with the animals at a very young age, I find it extremely warming and soothing that now in my late 40’s, I have returned to that state of mind and being, yet now I am better equipped to understand and acknowledge this gift that I was born with, its just now I can let it naturally and freely flow and that my path as a Shaman is not new to me, I just embrace and live it daily now.


Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice and Yule marks the lowest point within the skies above us in the Northern Hemisphere for the Sun. The bringer of life and the great God who empowers and rules our lives, radiating, emanating and fuelling us on all levels of our being, is now waning as we reach what is the shortest day accompanied by the longest night within the calendrical year.
The greatest light show in our Universe is now ebbing and retreating into a time of slumber and as this God slowly dissipates before our very eyes, we can once again enter our state of hibernation just as the Bear does.
As the fires from our hearths crackle and warm us, we say farewell to the Sun who has invigorated and inspired us since the spring, reaching his crescendo six months ago at the Summer Solstice.
As we turn inwards, now is the time to recharge, just as the very ground we walk upon is at rest along with all the animals, trees, shrubs and life all around.
A time to reflect upon what has been and what is now passed, along with putting into plan what we would like to see and welcome into our lives once the time of retreat and slumber is over.
As the festive period begins, we must not forget what the true meaning of this very sacred time is about. To give thanks for all that we are, have been and will be again is pivotal to our well being, to enjoy all that is around us, to spend time with family, loved ones and friends, to take the time to value this very life that we have and hold dear.

As the Sun slowly slips away, give thanks for the energy he has given us throughout the year that is now almost over, bow your head and give thanks to him, for without the Sun, we would not and could not be.
However you celebrate this time of year, I wish you a very magical Winter Solstice and Yule time.
Much love to you all.

Archaic and Wrong

Within the majority of the world today, we as a supposed race of civilised beings have reached the time where we do not need to kill, exploit and eat the animals we share this beautiful planet with.

Unless you are an Inuit living in the frozen expanses, or a tribe living where arable land is sparse and unmanageable, there really is no excuse whatsoever to partake and support mass slaughter of our fellow creatures. We have now reached an understanding, backed with factual scientific evidence that proves to not eat meat is healthier for us all, even though to become Vegan has to be about saving lives and not being a part of cruelty on a massive scale.

How can anybody in this day and age possibly think its ok to eat another being, let alone wear the skin, its beyond belief and shows a total lack of compassion, empathy and humanity.

The social conditioning of needing a staple diet of meat and two veg has long gone and was absurd anyway.

Times are changing and whatever you believe, it is wrong to kill, slaughter, exploit and see the creatures we share this planet with as a commodity for us to ridicule and use.

Come on peoples, sharpen your senses, escape the cycle of cruelty and exploitation of animals and make the transition to become meat, dairy and cruelty free, there really is no other way.

John Awen.
