Get Conscious

Let go, be free now and SHINE

Be all that you can be NOW


 In my experience learning to meditate is not just a tool but a gift to your mind and body.  I have attended Nicole's meditation and coaching classes and found her method of teaching to be easy, relaxed and very enjoyable.  She answers questions simply and helps make the practice of meditation a beautiful experience.  I highly recommend Nicole as a teacher and coach.

Is it time for change?

What would it mean if you could simply let go of stress?

Would you be more productive focusing on the here and now rather than past or future?

Would you have the space to be more inspirational and creative?

Would you feel relaxed, content and peaceful no matter what is going on around you?

Can you imagine the positive impact on you, your team and your business?

Simply let go of stress and be all that you can be NOW.

I offer simple and practical conscious coaching and meditation based on my experience transforming from a stress head workaholic to a modern day monk.  

Be all that you can be NOW




We are not meant to live life in a constant state of stress yet so many of us do.  I know from my own experience the negative impact it has on your mind, your body and those around you - the first step to changing it is acknowledging that.  I also know from experience, even that can be a big step as usually when you are stuck in exhaustion and overwhelm it feels like there is no space for anything else; no space to even realise that you are perpetually stressed, because you are just focused on doing what you need to do to get through the day.  

I am passionate about inspiring stressed people to get past the exhaustion and overwhelm.  My coaching is focused on meditation and simple techniques for getting conscious in a gentle and nurturing way as it is really important to not add more stress to your life by stepping into change; and yet you do need to take action if you are ready for change.

Coaching assists and supports you in sustainable change.  

If you are ready for change get in touch and we can chat about possibilities.   


Hello! My name is Nicole Thackray (also known as Sri Dhara) and I am the founder of Simply Inspire which has been created out of my passion to explore consciousness and inspire stressed and overworked people to get past exhaustion and overwhelm by simply creating space and harmony through meditation and getting conscious so you can SHINE.

I have been practising meditation for more than 10 years and became a meditation teacher and an Ishaya Monk about 4 years ago. I teach Ascension meditation.  I have spent several years learning various coaching tools including MBCT and MBSR (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Stress Reduction) however, I always come back to teaching Ascension meditation because it is a tool that makes it so simple and easy to experience PEACE right NOW.  Life (and lets face it our heads!) are complicated and stressful enough without adding to it.  My goal is to to inspire you to embrace some really simple changes in your life that will empower you to live the life you are meant to.  

How did I become a conscious coach and meditation teacher?  Honestly, I was a bit of a stress head, workaholic, manager and I got to the point where I had enough.

WATCH -  A Mindful Choice - the movie about the life changing impact of Ascension.  

I don't know if you can relate to this but often I would think, “there has to be more to life”.  There has to be more than getting up, going to work, getting as much done as possible, coming home, sleeping, getting up and doing it all again. It didn't feel like much of a life. Although there were parts of my life and people I loved, I didn't feel happy, often stressed and tired and feeling like I wasn’t enough, like something was missing, like there had to be more. 

Several years ago I was at a meditation retreat where I experienced such a profoundly deep level of peace that I couldn’t ignore it.  It was like, in that moment, the old stressed me just disappeared; didn’t exist anymore. I realised there really was more to life and it was inside me.

And so began my journey to becoming a meditation teacher and a coach; something I never dreamed I would do after years in the corporate world. Through my experience of practising and teaching meditation and exploring other modalities I realised the more consciously we live life the more full it is of peace, love and joy, the more we naturally SHINE and it expands and radiates out to those around us.

In our modern world there are so many ways we experience stress both physically and mentally. It would be unrealistic to think that we can create a life where we never experience stress.  Meditation is the ultimate tool to gently heal your nervous system and continuously let go of stress so you can be present to here and now.  I know this from my own experience from practising and teaching meditation.  

Practising any form of meditation is better than no meditation at all. Think of it as the key to keeping your mind and body healthy just like going to a gym.  

Where most people fail with meditation is not keeping up with the practise  - quite simply thinking about it isn't doing it! Which,funnily enough is also like going to a gym - how many of us have gym memberships we rarely use? 

Don't do what I did and take years to realise that.  If you want to experience the truly amazing benefits of meditation you need to be committed.  Having a teacher that can guide and support you in your practise is going to help you achieve that sooner rather than later.

I teach a simple, easy and effective form of meditation called Ascension which is taught live, face to face.
