(8-Week Mindfulness for Health & Happiness Course)

“I would recommend this course to anyone who, like most of us, has felt that she/he is constantly thinking about the future rather than living now, because thinking about what others expect you to do is often much worse than actually tackling things in a mindful way.

Before the course I felt at times that I was drowning in a sea of things that I had to do, I worried about what people would think of me if I didn't deal with everything, and deal with it well.

By the end of the course I realised that I was calm enough to deal with immediate issues and that nothing terrible would happen if I prioritised things and related these priorities to my own values.

I have fewer panicky moments and feel able to slow my mind rather than imagine the worst possible scenarios. I already feel calmer (mostly) and have found effective ways of focussing on what I value.

The different meditations have been invaluable, also the realisation that thoughts are not facts.
I really enjoyed getting to know some lovely, interesting people, sharing thoughts and feelings with honesty and sensitivity.

The way in which John and Joy responded to each comment, question etc showed insight and demonstrated their knowledge and skills around
mindfulness and meditation. We were all gently encouraged to interact which led to a much better understanding of other people's thoughts and experiences.

All of the team made us feel welcome at each session -although we are glad that John and Joy didn't mirror Lora whose attentions usually included nuzzles, sniffs and lying on her back wanting her belly rubbed!

Thank you both for all the time and effort that you have put into this fantastic course.”

David Foster Wallace’s Lesson on Not Living Life by Default

Can we learn valuable life lessons from talking fish? David Foster Wallace says we can in his famous 2005 college speech

This is a great short video containing some wise words on how to deal with the petty frustrations, routine and boredom that happen in real life.

It looks at just how miserable and frustrating it can be when we go through life ‘on autopilot’ behaving as if the world revolves around us.

It explores the value of ‘real education’ and the freedom we can experience in our life from becoming well adjusted, compassionate human beings.

Mindfulness is the key to being able to live this way. Using mindful awareness can we give ourselves the gift of living a good life before death. Enjoy!
