I love Amanda and Duncan. The treatments and services they provide are absolutely amazing. I've had beauty treatments, massages and Reiki with Amanda and she has helped me through some horrendous times. I would highly recommend Amanda and Duncan.


A lovely experience and made me feel completely at ease through all three of my different treatments. I have had a Hot Lava Shell...

Two Glasses of Wine, a lovely life philosphy like meditation

This lovely philosphy story was given to us by our dear friends at West Sussex Chiropractors. Very much like the recent Happiness Revolution and meditation.

Two Glasses of wine, a philosphy for life or meditationWhen things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 glasses of wine.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.  When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up the very large and empty mayonniase jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full.  They agreed it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar.  He shook the jar lightly.  The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.  He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.  Of course, the sand filled up everything else.  He asked once more if the jar was full.  the students responded with a unanimous “Yes”

The professor then produced two glasses of wine from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand.  The students laughed.  “Now” said the profess, as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognise that this jar represents your life.  The golf balls are the important things; your family, your childeren, your health, your friends and your favourite passions; things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full”.

“The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.”

“The sand is everything else; the small stuff.  If your put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.”

“The same goes for life.  If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.”

“Pay attention the the things that are critical to your happiness.  Play with your children.  Take time to meditate. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18holes.  Go for one more run down the ski slope.  There will always be time to clean the house.  Take care of the golf balls first; the things that really matter.”The Happiness Revolution by Ananda Healing

“Set your priorities. The rest is just sand..”

One of the students raised her hand and enquired “What does the wine represent?”.  The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked.  It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there is always room for a couple of glasses of wine with friends!”

What a lovely story. It leads on nicely from our Happiness Revolution where you focus on the important things that you have in your life, rather than all the rubbish. It also fits beautifully with the meditation that we teach at Ananda Healing.
