(4-Week Mindfulness for Busy People Course)

“The only thing I didn’t enjoy about the classes was finishing them. I enjoyed being able to ask questions, share experiences and not feel judged. Also importantly, the time spent explaining the concepts rather than diving straight into practice. I’ve learned actually how to meditate and what this means. The teacher was great – balanced structure well with interactivity and let it flow. A sensitive addition of humour too.

I’m surprised How much easier it has got naturally and what a huge impact mindfulness has had already in helping me address issues that I have tried through various therapies and other techniques for over a year.

The variety of techniques was great. Since practising I feel that I’m, happier, kinder, more patient, chilled out, be able to reframe and not get caught up in negative thoughts. I’ve learned patience, to switch off and think of today, to be happier and how to get back to sleep!

Thank you Joy, I have been amazed at my progress. Especially this last week - what would have previously been a very overwhelming time for me resulting in high levels of stress and anxiety actually ended up with me not only getting through it but making really positive progress at work with tangible results and dare I say it, I actually enjoyed it also!!”

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!
