First lets start with the fun stuff. Get your diaries out!
Come along to the Bromley Mindfulness Spring Social Meetup at the Barrel and Horn in Bromley at 2PM on Sunday April 19th.
Everyone is welcome. If you do intend to come, please book into the Meetup group and RSVP. You can book by clicking on this link: http://www.meetup.com/Bromley-Mindfulness-Meditation-Meetup/events/221174411/
I know there are many of you that can’t make the times of the drop-in classes and so you’ve never attended, but still do come along. It will give you a chance to meet like-minded people in Bromley. I want to make the meetup group as inclusive, fun and useful as possible.
We have booked the cool and quirky ‘Granny’s living room’ area at the Barrel and Horn. You can check it out here: https://firstname.lastname@example.org,0.013502,3a,75y,326.54h,73.66t/data=!3m5!1e1!3m3!1sh9vxMRfw9mtWZ9t838XjiQ!2e0!3e2?hl=en

From Monday the 13th of April I shall be running mindfulness meditation classes in Beckenham each Monday evening at 7:30pm.
The venue will be 1a Balgowan Road which is a community arts centre with a really cool upstairs room, one wall of which is covered with tiled islamic style isometric and geometric tiles hence the name Alhambra.
The venue is a few minutes from the Beckenham Beacon hospital.
The building is used as a community arts project run by a fascinating guy called Garnet and one of my students Tracie. Way to go Tracie!
The arts project provides facilities for local groups and they have a project working with the school opposite.
Garnet, the manager of the group is a fascinating character about whom a great creative Director Ed Perkins has done a documentary. You can see the documentary this Tuesday on BBC 4 On Storyville at 11PM. it is called The Lost Gold of the Highlands! I haven’t seen it but I can’t wait…

This month, March, the last Thursday is the 26th and I shall be doing a workshop on Work Related Stress. Do please RSVP. There is no limit on places but it is good to know who is attending.
For this great lunchtime venue and fun, relaxed sessions (it is so chilled!), I do a combination of mindfulness meditation and Metta Bhavana (Tibetan Buddhist loving kindness) meditations. There are a wide variety of Metta Bhavana meditations and I widen my repertoire of them on an ongoing basis. In addition to providing a brilliant way to explore your inner experience and find peace of mind, they also leave everyone feeling good…

At Last! I have finally completed the audio editing of a set of basic mindfulness meditations that I will make available to anyone that wants one. Just email me at email@example.com
