This month Ben and Jeni are joined by Siobhan Healy aka Jutika (, an experienced meditation and mindfulness teacher. She gives us some great insight into ‘focusing’ support all the from Ireland.

Our wide ranging, but always strangely linked, facts this month are that trees talk and plants listen, a look at the links and myths surrounding creativity and mental illness and that our bodies hold experience and know the way forward.

You’ll also find it on YouTube:

Every first Monday of the month Ben and Jeni invite friends and colleagues to chat about what they’ve found interesting from the past, present and future of ‘wellness’.

Share your facts, feedback (keep it clean) and support on twitter @ASpoonFull_ .
