Love & Om
Today the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will address a gathering of business, charity and media leaders in London to encourage them to back their Heads Together campaign. They will ask all of us to “start conversations” about mental health to break down the stigma surrounding the subject.
It will be at the centre of the royal trio’s public work as they build towards the London Marathon in April, of which Heads Together is Charity of the Year for 2017 that we are also supporting.

Join the 1% Challenge and every minute you practice mindfulness in a live Mindful Daily session will count toward earning prizes and increasing eMindful’s donation to charity.
Practicing mindfulness helps you develop skills that have been shown to create lasting positive change, reduce stress, improve sleep and increase happiness.
So reserve your spot and start earning mindful minutes and rewards the day your challenge begins!

How mindfulness could give you the gift of a calmer Christmas
In the run-up to Christmas we find our to-do lists bloated with added chores: present shopping, card writing, preparing to travel or receive guests. We are bombarded with adverts telling us what to buy and where. We tackle the shopping crowds searching for the perfect gift and the juiciest turkey. Our energy and purses are pulled in all directions while we limp on at work waiting for the holiday to arrive.
As the day approaches we may dream of happy families singing around the fire or worry whether everyone will like their gifts or if there will be arguments. Media images distort our expectations of the perfect Christmas with celebrities advising us on the recipes and crafts to add extra joy to the holidays.

Our weekly group provides support to develop and maintain your mindfulness practice. “It’s a simple and generous rule of life that whatever you practice, you will improve at.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert. Please arrive by 18:25 latest as the door is locked at 18:30. New members should visit this page to read about meditation room access: www.meditation-kingston-upon-thames.co.uk/contact
