1931 - 2009

Sydney Banks, Scottish-born philosopher and author and lecturer wrote "The Enlightened Gardener" in 1973, explaining what Banks called The Three Principles
of Mind, Consciousness and Thought.

The insight that Banks shared had a impact on the practice of psychology and psychiatry within a growing community of professionals in therapy, education and both community and individual rehabilitation.

Correctional facilities, halfway houses, even homeless shelters have
introduced The Three Principles with consistent success. Banks's words have been an affirmative and constructive force in the lives of thousands

Many people struggle with difficult emotions during and after traumatic events. They live trapped in these events, which can lead to self destructive behaviour, feeling hopeless and unable to move forward in life.

A slice of Happiness offers support which helps people to wake up to new possibilities and the potential we all have within us to experience peace of mind and contentment.

(Universal) Mind

is the energy and the intelligence behind all life


is the principle serving us immediately at birth and giving each of us a moment to moment experience of life and
our own unique realities


is the principle that brings our thinking to life through our five senses and allows us to be aware of life.
