We live in a world of change and uncertainty but presently it’s as if a storm were raging around us, churning up feelings of anxiety and fear and making it difficult to respond resourcefully to our own needs and those of others.

Join us for an afternoon of self- discovery and journey into stillness as Neville Hodgkinson discusses the book with the Authors Dr Sarah Eagger (MB,BS, FRCPsych) and Jan Alcoe (DHypPsych (UK)).


Stillness in the Storm is new book published by the Janki Foundation, that is focused on raising spiritual awareness within healthcare. This unique book offers 7 self-help tools for coping with fear and uncertainty in challenging times, drawn from a broad range of positive psychology therapeutic and spiritual models and approaches. With short meditations and visualisations, the book guides us to discovering ‘stillness in the storm

Social Media Survey

Dear All,


Hope you have had an enjoyable summer. 


We are in the process of reviewing the Janki Foundation's social media content, which includes our website. 


Studies have indicated that different healthcare professionals have variable use of social media platforms, and they will make recommendations to patients or colleagues based on their confidence and reliability of information. In the current climate of healthcare crisis and information overload, we would benefit from an understanding on how spirituality-related information is accessed by healthcare professionals. This will enable us to focus our messages, events and outreach. 


We would greatly welcome your valuable thoughts through this survey. It is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you.

Best wishes, 

JF Social Media Review Group
