2019 Mindfulness Practice Programmes

Why is practice important? When not moving toward integration, complex systems like our lives move toward either chaos or rigidity, rather than the flexible harmonious flow of integrative wellbeing. ~ Dr Daniel Siegel

Below are links to the online audio and downloads for all recent weekly mindfulness practice meditations 'Free of Charge - Open to All'. Practising Mindfulness may be the kindest action we can take for our own growth and that of humanity because we are all connected. As we change individually we assist in making shifts in the collective. Connecting with our deep wellbeing empowers us to take action for a happier and more caring world.

Osho on Happiness

Being happy is up to you. It’s a choice you make, and it really is that simple. No one but you is responsible for your happiness, and no one but you can choose to be happy. “Happiness is man's nature. You need not worry about happiness at all, it is already there. It is in your heart – you just have to stop being unhappy, you have to stop the mechanism functioning which creates unhappiness.” Book ~ Zen: The Path of Paradox, Vol 2 by Osho | Audio MP3 ~ Happiness by Osho Part 1 | Text PDF ~ Happiness by Osho Part 1

"I’m here, as Health Secretary, because air pollution is a health emergency." This week the Air Pollution Strategy was released. Visit this page for links to all the Strategic Documents.

OM

OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe. www.youtube.com/watch

Kinder ~ Donna De Lory

Mindfulness practice couldn't be simpler: pay attention to the breath, and when your attention wanders, return. By following these simple steps, you can get to know yourself up close and personal. The essential meditation is Silence. We are made of sound and silence.Sound is our mind; silence is our being. Sound is our trouble; silence is our liberation.All other meditations are different forms of witnessing, but witnessing is present in every kind of meditation as an essential part. Vipassana Page

Going to the places that scare you ~ Pema Chodron

We always have a choice, Pema Chödrön teaches: We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. In this talk, Pema provides the tools to deal with the problems and difficulties that life throws our way. This wisdom is always available to us, Pema teaches, but we usually block it with habitual patterns rooted in fear. Beyond that fear lies a state of open heartedness and tenderness. This talk is a guide on how to awaken our basic goodness and connect with others, to accept ourselves and others complete with faults and imperfections, and to stay in the present moment by seeing through the strategies of ego that cause us to resist life as it is. www.youtube.com/watch

Mada Dalian interview on her book

In Search of the Miraculous: Healing into Consciousness is an invaluable spiritual manual to each persons journey out of pain and suffering. It imparts an in-depth understanding about the complexities of our spiritual journey, and covers many questions left unanswered by others. The author guides readers through the phases of the development of their ego and consciousness, and describes the steps we all need to take to heal our ego into consciousness. Most chapters are followed by question and answer sections; making the topics covered in each chapter more personal and down-to-earth. The author s own story at the end of the book, described in the chapter One Spirit s Journey, beautifully exemplifies how she herself has walked the talk that she now teaches to others. This book might be this year s best offering in the field of spirituality and personal growth, and is here to stay for a long time to come. www.transformationradio.fm

How to Welcome a More Mindful New Year ~ Erin Lee

As an advocate of mindfulness as a way of life, I invite you to incorporate mindfulness as a part of your New Year Resolutions. You might want to commit to doing one thing mindfully per day, or establish a more routine mindfulness practice. You might even want to get yourself formally trained in mindfulness, if you have been toying with the idea for some time. Perhaps you already have a New Year Resolution in mind, and you could be more mindful about achieving or sticking with it.". www.youtube.com/watch?
