MISSION


COME IN PEACE | LEAVE IN HARMONY


" Essentially there isn't anything I teach, offer that you do not already know, deep within your own being. My work is to assist you in uncovering that which is already there within you. To bring out of my own work on myself and to offer that movement toward truth, for the benefit of others. That they may awaken to their own sense of equanimity born out of their hearts longing for peace and discovering the one true nature that is in us all, and has been all along." Nigel Lott

*To guide those on a path of healing, to shine a light upon darkness one heart at a time.

 *To bring my healing practices into all levels of education, prisons, rehabilitation centers, and to those experiencing sickness or need .

 * To support the cultivation of higher levels of consciousness and well-being.

 *To educate as many as possible through personal instruction and sessions, written materials, classes and trainings, and other means of media the importance and methods of these effective healing practices and techniques. 

* To uphold and practice loving kindness, with respect and dignity for all life and the planet. 

* To support research, charitable projects, and works that are in service to the relief of suffering.

"Remember the infinite possibilities that are born of knowing that all love surrounds you, lives within you and that all life is so very, very precious, there is not a moment to lose. To love now all that you can, surrender to its power to the heart of it, and know that in the beginning, as in the end it is all that is or ever was or ever will be. For you are the letter written by God, you are the mirror that reflects the divine, seek inside for all you want is all you are, there is nothing above or beyond.

Helping a couple to overcome and move through a very stuck place in their relationship, showing them techniques and practices to deepen the love in each other by moving beyond the pain. Being invited to read healing stories to hospital patients and nursing / retirement  homes, or helping a company resolve conflict in the workplace. These are just a few of the tasks  I am called upon to perform. I carry around a number of breathing techniques and healing meditations in my head and heart and use them formally in class and in many other circumstances throughout my day.

"In coming to the true wisdom of the heart we offer no resistance to circumstance, surrendering to it all with the utmost humility, we come before love, before God, wherein all questions are answered…beauti-fully." Nigel Lott

CONNECTIONS HELPLINE



NEED HELP CALL US ANYTIME 


In keeping with my core values, in this community all sentient beings are held in the highest regard, with the utmost dignity and respect.


CONNECTIONS offers weekly calls to people who are experiencing loneliness and, who would like to receive regular weekly telephone friendship from a kindly, compassionate and supportive volunteer.

People and volunteers are matched carefully, to ensure they have some common interests and compatible personalities and friendships are reviewed regularly, to ensure that both parties find them enjoyable. The calls last approximately 30 minutes, and take place on the same day, at the same time, each week.

The Telephone Friendship Service is not a counselling service, and no specialist advice or support is provided, however if it becomes apparent that specialist help is needed a referral can be made.

The service is free, calls from volunteers are made via an online, virtual call centre and our people and volunteers never meet, as the safety of the people we help and our volunteers is paramount.

MASTER STORY TELLING


"Nigel is an example of far reaching change. His transformation and knowledge come out of original experience and the equanimity that he now exhibits. Among all the people that I have known, Nigel has traveled the furthest. He has a way of framing internally as his language implies and, defines the terms of the larger mechanism that governs everyones lives, every intelligence, and the larger growing understanding and mapping of what the universe is creating." Paul Richards, The Sente Center.
