Welcome to the Calm Clan!
Inside the Calm Clan you will find resources to help you with meditation, health and healing, stressing less and relaxing more, sleeping better, being free from anxiety, improving relationships, goals and success and spiritual awakening.
Every month I host a Meditation Class so you can master the life-changing skill. I also host either a Masterclass or Mentorclass, usually on the third Sunday of the month. The Masterclass is on the seasonal theme (Purpose, Emotions, Health, Relationships etc.). This is followed by a Mentorclass the next month, which is a chance for me to teach more on the subject and for you to ask questions and share how you are getting on applying the advice and activities taught.
The Members Hub (where you always arrive to after logging in) is the main hub for easily accessing all recently added content, along with the most popular resources. Near to the top of the Members Hub, you will find the monthly schedule of live webinars. To attend these live, simply click on the schedule listing image at the date/time of the webinar. If you miss any of Sandy's live broadcasts then you will find highlights and replays on the Members Hub - these are added within 24 hours. We send out a couple email updates per month, however, for more announcements and inspiration, we invite you to join the Calm Clan Facebook Group - request to join HERE.
FIRST THINGS FIRST
With 200+ hours of teaching videos and a ever-growing library of guided meditations available, where should you start?
I recommend you begin by learning my GAAWO technique - which can quickly give you an experience of peace. GAAWO is also the first step of the Calm Meditations - so it’s important to know it. Then commit to a regular Calm Meditations practice as this will help you to benefit from everything else shared within the Calm Clan. The recommended daily practice is to listen to the Mind Calm Meditation in the morning and Body Calm Meditation later in the day - both found on the Member Hub and downloadable.
1) This 8-minute video introduces you to the GAAWO technique, which gives you instant peace and presence - anytime, anywhere - and is the first step of open and closed eye Calm Meditation. To ensure you completely understand how to use GAAWO, also check out this audio guide:
2) This 27-minute video covers your motivation to meditate and the 3 steps of the Mind Calm Meditation technique. After watching, play the track below to do your first Mind Calm meditation sitting. Body Calm has the same 3 steps. All meditations can also be found on the Members Hub.

Imagine you are outside on a clear sunny day looking up at the big blue sky... Naturally, you feel calm, relaxed and well. Then, out of the blue, a bird flies across your field of vision. Upon noticing the bird, you take your focus away from the still sky to instead track the movement of the bird as it flies on by. But you don't stop there. You then start thinking about the bird - 'I wonder where it's coming from and going?' ... 'Why is it flying solo?' ... 'Oh no, has it lost its friends!?!' ... and before you know it you are no longer feeling as calm or well as you once were. Instead, you are now feeling concern.
What’s this got to do with you enjoying a more peaceful and positive life? Inside you, right now, is a big sky of awareness and within that awareness there are 'birds' flying around - including thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, life circumstances... even the words you are reading right now is something you are aware of and therefore 'birds' in your 'sky of awareness'.
Our aim is to become much more interested in and attentive to the awareness that's aware of the mind, emotions, body and life. By being consciously aware, you immediately FEEL YOUR AWARENESS instead of FEELING YOUR THINKING (which can often be negative). You discover that your awareness is still, silent, peaceful, powerful, unlimited and infinite. It is who you really are (as apposed to who you think you are) and by being Consciously Aware in Life with the help of a Meditation technique like C.A.L.M., you can wake up to the most wonderful life - not later when you've fixed, changed or improved everything, but NOW.
