Hello! We are Michael and Michelle Coleman and are lucky to call Guanock House our home. We know all about the stresses and strains of modern living and the toll that can take upon our body, mind and spirit.
We have both been teaching spiritual development work for many years. But life itself has been our best teacher. By practicing conscious observation of ourselves – our emotional responses and our reactions to life situations that we do the work on ourselves and that enables us to help others.
Through the exploration of many meditation and spiritual practices our principal teachers have synthesised a number of Yoga meditation techniques from the most basic to the most advanced that we believe serves modern people, living busy, modern lives. We believe that in the current age the leading edge of human development is no longer to be found by seeking out remote Yogis living high in the Himalayas or in ashrams in the Far East. The leading edge in human development necessarily involves the tussle of everyday modern life. The conjunction of deep meditation practice and the full experience of living in the world is where rapid progress is made.
Guanock House dates back to Roman times. In the 14th Century it was part of Spalding Priory.
Originally a Roman Settlement, Guanock was a monastic grange close to a waterway connecting Spalding to Wisbech. The word guanock refers to a place of healing. The original grange was built out of Barnack Rag, a high grade and much valued building stone used from Roman times until the 1530’s.
