This is the season when the natural world comes to life again and our senses are bombarded with colour, sunshine, birdsong, fragrance and constantly changing temperatures!
I was facilitating a couple of sessions at a company who were interested in an Introduction to Mindfulness. 90 minutes in a small group was enough to re-engage with what we can do to come to our senses and get out of our busy minds. For some it was a chance to notice how busy and stressed their lives had got, and to work out how to bring a little more space and tranquillity in. Here are some other ways to keep yourself in a good place…
I have room for a couple more people in my Monday Mindful Hour. From 8-9pm most Mondays I lead a small group in my home in Balcombe. We do Mindfulness guided meditations and stretches as well as consider how we can bring mindfulness into our daily lives. A great way to touch base with your inner calm. If you’d like to come along and give it a try, call me on 01444 819075.
Saturday 4th July, Independence Day in the US, is the date of the next walk. We meet outside the Tearooms in Balcombe and do a beautiful circuit that takes in fields, woods and the lake. £5, call me to book your place.
So there is no excuse! If you or a friend is in need of permission to slow down and smell the roses, here are a few ideas to get you started. If you can’t join us for any of the activities, I hope you enjoy the colours, fragrances and sounds, of Spring and the sun shine – don’t blink, you might miss it!
