Mindfulness is more a way of being than a tech-
nique and it is the regular daily practice (30 min-
utes) that increases the likelihood of being able to
use mindfulness when times are particularly tough.
By committing to the daily practice, at least for the
duration of the course, you give yourself the best
opportunity to experience a difference in how you
relate to what is happening in your life. You may be
surprised!
To register for the Workshop or Course call
Yes to Life on 0203 222 0587 or email office@yesto-
life.org.uk. You will be sent a registration form to
fill in and return. Following this, the charity will ar-
range a time for you to speak with me. This an op-
portunity to talk about yourself and the particular
challenges you may be facing at the moment, and
to learn more about mindfulness and how it may
help. You will be able to chat about any concerns
you may have, which may help in deciding if it's the
right course for you, or the right time to be embark-
ing on it. It is a challenging, but at the same time
life-enhancing course.
I look forward to practising and learning with you.
I hope that this month's article has conveyed
the essentials of Yes to Life's programme of events
and will entice some of you into wanting to attend!
Below is a calendar of some of our upcoming events,
but you can always get up to date on our website
yestolife.org.uk by looking under Events, and every
page has a Newsletter sign up at the bottom right.
Our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds are also
