'Meditation is the ultimate mobile device; you can use it anytime, anywhere unobtrusively'
Sharon Salzberg

Many view Mindfulness as something of a minority sport to be practiced only in a quiet room with eyes closed. 
I know from experience that for Mindfulness to be truly useful it has to work for us in the every day stuff of our lives , helping us both to better manage difficult situations and challenging  people and to notice and enjoy the gifts in the everyday. 
We often come to mindfulness with a clouded, worried mind, searching somehow for more peace, happiness and connection. Practising Mindfulness helps us to somehow feel lighter on our feet, experience more happiness for no apparent reason, and to see what are often crippling fears and anxieties diminish.

Join me for this gentle day of practise and go away refreshed and equipped to bring the benefits of mindfulness into your everyday life.
We will be a small group of six, with healthy snacks, vegetarian lunch , and lovely surroundings for this nourishing day of finding Peace Where We Are.

This workshop is suitable for those who have some experience of mindfulness and those who are new to this simple way of being more present to ourselves, those we love and the world in which we live.

CHRISTMAS AWAKENS WONDER

Christmas awakens wonder in the heart. All belief depends on wonder. Where there is no wonder, there can be no faith. Wonder is a beautiful way of seeing. Wonder never rests on the surface of a fact or situation. It voyages inwards to discover why something is the way it is. Wonder celebrates the mystery and depth of presence that is within us and around us. It has no greed to grasp or own the heart of a thing. As Patrick Kavanagh said: "Through a chink too wide comes in no wonder." Wonder keeps experience fresh and original. At the Winter Solstice the divine presence stirs in the crib of the heart infusing our eyes with the glow of wonder.

John O'Donohue 
Excerpt from BBC Radio 4, Christmas Reflection, 1998.

Clearing by Martha Postlewaite

Do not try to save
the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create
a clearing
in the dense forest
of your life
and wait there
patiently,
until the song
that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself
to this world
so worth of rescue.
