Monday Mindfulness returns for 2018 with a corker of a book!
Mindful Bookclub incorporates meditation, self inquiry, discussion and other exercises based on themes around personal and spiritual development. We explore ideas around waking up, balance, stress relief, purpose, being human, mindfulness, connection, finding your true self and many, many more. We use a book to help guide our discussion and meditations. Previous books have included ‘The Power of Now’ by Eckhart Tolle, ‘The Four Agreements’ by Don Miguel Ruiz, and ‘Loving What Is’ by Byron Katie.
From 8th January 2018, we’ll be using ‘Awareness’ by Anthony de Mello to guide us. You don’t need to buy the book although it’s helpful, as the discussions will be facilitated around a key idea each week. You don’t need to attend every class, although regular practice has its own rewards!
My name is Lucy and I'm a yoga and mindfulness teacher, and coach based in Tunbridge Wells, England
I spent 15 years working in finance and consulting after university, experiencing bouts of debilitating depression, addicted to the working-money-spending-drinking-shopping- working-money cycle that is so endemic in our society. I believed this was normal life. I found my job reasonably interesting, but something never seemed quite right. I was always chasing after men who were unavailable or who did not love me enough. I had absolutely no idea who I was. I felt stuck and powerless, living a life that didn’t feel right, a life that seemed to have no end and over which I had no say, just an endless circle of work and spending and failed relationships.
