We all love stories. The question is, “Is the story you are living the one you want or it is a story about running on a hamster wheel, mind racing, high stress levels, unhealthy habits and feeling pulled and dragged by the demands of the day?”
Mindfulness and Meditation is about coming home to ourselves and living in accordance with our true nature. Each day we have the opportunity to create a new page in our life. An opportunity to nourish our mind, our body and spirit, by living a life that is aligned with our innermost being.
We may hope that at the end of the year and ultimately our life we can look back and see the wonder of the story we have lived, all the while being true to ourselves.
We may hope that on our journey we can connect with calm when we feel anger might take over, peace when we feel stress looming large, love in times of hostility. We may hope that we can keep our hearts open when we feel like closing down with hurt and that we can care for our mind, our body, and spirit with an attitude of balance and loving kindness.
Mindfulness and Meditation helps us, as it shows a way to be the person you really want to be by coming home to yourself and making good choices.
Now, of course like the weather, life will always be full of ups and downs. The beauty of this programme is that it connects us with our inner wisdom and guides us in negotiating our way through challenging times in a graceful and healthy way.
So that, we grow in our humanity as we accompany each other on this journey home.
Thich Nhat Hanh has a beautiful story about watering seeds. He says:
“Your mind is like a piece of land planted with many different seeds: Seeds of joy, peace, mindfulness, understanding and love, seeds of craving, anger, fear, hate and forgetfulness. These wholesome and unwholesome seeds are always there, sleeping in the soil of your mind. The quality of your life depends on the seeds you water. If you plant tomato seeds in your gardens, tomatoes will grow. Just so, if you water a seed of peace in your mind, peace will grow. When the seeds of happiness in your life are watered, you will become happy. When the seeds of anger in you are watered, you will become angry. The seeds that are watered frequently are those that will grow strong.”
This programme shows us how to water the seeds of loving kindness and those seeds that nourish us at all levels.
With loving-kindness connect to:
- Living an authentic life
- Ease and nourishing your mind, body and spirit
- Being the person you want to be.
- Connecting with calm within the chaos
- Communicate effectively to others and remain at ease
- This programme is about ‘you’ .
- Meditation and Mindfulness practices are designed in a manageable way to suit your lifestyle.
