Helen HamiltonHelen Hamilton is a spiritual teacher based in West Yorkshire, in the north of England, and is a mother of four.

Helen’s teaching style is direct and uncompromising in its insistence that we already are what we are searching for and yet encompasses compassion and wisdom to help us dissolve our ego with love and understanding. She teaches worldwide and holds regular Satsangs and other events.
