    Naked Dragon is Two Years Old this May! 


    And What a Thrilling, Inspirational and Amazing Two Years it Has Been! 

    Since our launch event in Surrey in May 2011 with our first guest speaker; best selling author and creator of The Mystery Experience – Tim Freke, it continues to be a great joy to offer a platform to the best of today’s Inspirational Speakers and Sound Performers. 

    Nurturing and developing our community has been fuelled by love and it is a real joy to have discovered that by following my passion in such a way that Naked Dragon has quickly become my life’s work. And as work has become play – and play has become work – I have found myself dancing the beautiful dance of life as many aspects of my life begin to gently flow into one another.

    Over the past two years it has been a great pleasure to have presented …

    57 x Unique Inspirational Experiences with…
    34 x Fantastic Speakers and Performers at…
    7 x Gorgeous Venues 

    And we were recently delighted to learn that we had connected with more than 30,000 people last month!

    Last year we were also honoured to have been invited to sponsor… 

    2 x Film Premières

    Three Magic Words featuring Gregg Braden

    It has been a real pleasure to have hosted so many amazing teachers through our series of inspirational  events and I am very grateful for all the love and support everyone has given Naked Dragon over the past two years.

    I would also like to offer a HUGE Thank You to our Wonderful Sponsors who have been so very generous with their support.

Thank you all.

  • Bonkers About Books

    Posted Apr 17th, 2012 By in Book Reviews With | No Comments

    Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend.
    Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read!

    Groucho Marx

    With modern technology affecting all our lives, communication has become instantaneous and the internet has opened up a whole new world for us all.

    In many ways, progress is a good thing and I believe that we are incredibly fortunate to be living in one of the most exciting times of world history. However, there is one tradition that I hope will continue to be treasured by us all – the joy and pleasure of the World of Books.

    With the advent of the ‘Kindle’;  the book reading experience has joined the modern age and gone all ‘techie’. I agree  that it is a great tool for reading on the move…and a boon for backpackers who are often weighted down with kilos of books – I just wish it had been around when I went back packing a few years ago!

    However, I am delighted to report that following a recent ‘straw poll’ of my friends and family to ask how many would want to replace their beloved books with an electronic version of the same, the general consensus was that no piece of technology can replace the joy of curling up with a good book and that it wouldn’t be the same somehow (at least for those of us over the age of 25!) to snuggle up in bed with a good ‘Kindle!’

    There is something special and ‘touchy feely’ about the whole book experience…from perusing the shelves in the local book store or library; to making a selection and looking forward to some quiet time when we can switch off from the outside world and enter the world of inspiration contained within the pages of our chosen book.

    Books have their own special energy and unique smells. We like having them around to bring us comfort and security. Turning the pages to reveal the next exciting chapter is a real thrill. Books are our friends and our companions and we are never alone when we have a good book for company.

    A book that touches us in some deep way will remain in our memory forever. And when a book makes such an impression, we can often we can recall exactly where we were when we first read it.

    As you may have gathered by now, I am just BONKERS about BOOKS!

    Some final thoughts on our enduring love for books…

    To read a book for the first time is to make an acquaintance with a new friend; to read it for a second time is to meet an old one ~ Chinese Saying

    Books are the windows through which the soul looks out ~ Henry Ward Beecher

    The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it ~ James Bryce

    If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it ~Toni Morrison

    Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers ~ Charles W. Eliot

    Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it ~P.J. O’Rourke

    I find television to be very educating.  Every time somebody turns on the set, I go in the other room and read a book ~ Groucho Marx

  • John Whiteman – Creating Happiness from the Inside-Out

    Posted Jan 28th, 2012 By in Archives With | No Comments

    Wednesday 25th April 2012

    Happiness is an Energy you can Create from the Inside-Out

    Imagine a life where you were able to self-manage how you feel.

    A life where by taking simple steps each day you can shift from feeling ok…

    …to feeling good…

    to feeling fantastic!

    Well the simple answer is – you can!

    During this inspirational talk, John will explain how to increase your energy vibration and take the action you need to manifest your dreams.

    John has discovered 9 Elements which, when brought into your life will do exactly that. Based on his experiences as a Business Troubleshooter, he found that these 9 Elements when applied to his clients lives made such an improvement to how they felt that their personal and business life benefited amazingly.

    “These 9 Elements lift your energy vibration, make you happier, and help you to find and live your life’s purpose”


    These practical steps form the foundation to a philosophy of life John calls “The Way”

    The Way brings your mind, body and spirit together as one, helping you to be the person you were meant to be and live a life filled with happiness and flow.

    “How you Feel is…How you Live your Life”

    John’s teachings can easily be incorporated into your life. Just by having the awareness of how these elements directly affect how you feel can have life changing effects and result in you living a happier life.

    “A Life Where You Get to Self Manage How You Feel…and Grow Happiness from the Inside-Out”
