10:30 – 13:00

Bring along your pens, note book or a small journal and 1 or 2 pictures or artefacts that hold happy or positive memories to this mornings taster session. Recent neuroscience research shows how we can learn to re-wire our brains towards a more positive bias building a happier mind and improving our well-being.  By using your creative imagination, mindful meditation, writing and discussion we will explore ways to develop more appreciation and savour life’s special moments.

How often in our daily life do we find ourselves dwelling on what is not ok rather then things that bring us happiness?  Even small acts of kindness from a friend or stranger can make a difference, but do we really notice them?

Offering random acts of kindness is a great way to begin, kindness given to or received from a stranger as well as those we know can instantly lift our mood, but we can take this further;  learn to truly appreciate and embody these fleeting moments of happiness – ‘Expand – Enlarge and Embody’ them!

We will make a start in this session, so please bring with you 1 or 2 pictures, images or artefacts (not too big) that remind you of happy memories or things you can appreciate, and a note book, or even better, a smallish journal (if you have one), and we will get started!  Reconnecting, re-wiring, writing creatively and sharing together as a group.

After the session you may like to take your practice outside in the natural surroundings of Shambellie appreciating what you discover.

No experience is necessary.
