  • 8 Week Mindfulness Course plus retreat day
    What is Mindfulness? Modern mindfulness is a non-religious form of meditation. Whilst most definitely having roots in ancient Eastern philosophies, mindfulness was adapted and developed in more recent times to help people manage their chronic stress, anxiety, depression and pain, by regularly practising a variety of mindfulness practices that can be integrated into modern day life. The practices can be done sitting, lying, walking, on the bus - anywhere - so they are suitable for all ages and very accessible for everybody. You do not have to sit in a lotus position, transcendentally chant or be in complete silence. However, if you did wish to do those things, that is absolutely fine, as long as you are doing them mindfully! Through mindfulness practice we can learn how to break the cycle of habitual thoughts, negative thought patterns and behaviours by becoming more aware of the triggers that lead us to them. Mindfulness helps us to reduce and manage stress and anxiety levels more effectively, helps us to cope with managing pain more effectively and overall it helps to build more resilience and improve our wellbeing in general, providing a more peaceful and postive outlook on life. Of course, you do not have to be suffering from stress to reap the benefits of mindfulness. Mindfulness offers a chance to simply stop sleepwalking through life and instead live it by being fully present in the moment, helping you to you remember your day, your life, finding moments of joy from the simplest of things, each and every day. What are the Benefits of Mindfulness? Mindfulness is a 'gym for the mind' and through regular mindfulness practice most people will see an improvement in the following: stress and anxiety levels chronic pain management breaking habitual thoughts reacting in a more positive way attention \ concentration awareness patience memory sleep resilience general wellbeing N.B - Whilst a research study shows that regular mindfulness practice can significantly reduce relapse rates for depression, it is best not to take part in an 8 week course whilst suffering from depression or other mental health issue and to wait until you are feeling better.

  • Does online social Media such as Facebook need controlling

    It is time we all realized we are wasting our time and life using social media.

    Some people do not have the understanding of it and what it is doing to them.

    Children should be banned from using it until at least aged 18. Most children cant handle it and are getting abused using it.

    It is becoming a platform for criminals.

    You have been warned and the government needs to take action.

  • People’s Vote campaign

    PRESS RELEASE Home News Launch of the new national People’s Vote campaign https://www.open-britain.co.uk/
    Post published: April 15, 2018
    After the biggest ever Day of Action by anti-Brexit campaigners on Saturday, with over 300 events across the country, today [Sunday] sees the national launch of the campaign for a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.

    The campaign will launch with a rally tomorrow afternoon in London in front of an audience of over 1,000 people. The crowd will hear from leading MPs from across the party divide – Anna Soubry, Chuka Umunna, Layla Moran and Caroline Lucas – about why they think it should be for the people, rather than politicians to decide.

    In addition, there will be speeches from other notable public figures, including the acting legend, Sir Patrick Stewart; world-renowned economist, Professor Mariana Mazzucato; ground-breaking entrepreneur, Richard Reed; and world-leading neurologist, Professor Malcolm Macleod. Young people, who have the most at stake in the Brexit debate, will be well represented with contributions by the Vice President of NUS, Amatey Doku; and OFOC youth campaigners, Femi Oluwole and Lara Spirit. The whole show will be compered by the award-winning comedian Andy Parsons.

    The People’s Vote campaign, with a new website (www.peoples-vote.uk), brings together nine grassroots campaigning organisations that have the support of a million people across the country, which have for the first time united behind a single overarching campaign.

    The People’s Vote campaign will today [Sunday] also be launching a new poster campaign, designed by some of the leading advertising creatives in the country, who have given their assistance voluntarily. The posters will be unveiled at the rally and on an ad van that will tour central London. Activists attending the rally will also be given t-shirts featuring one the campaign’s key messages – that the final deal is ‘too big to ignore’.

    Layla Moran MP, a leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, is expected to say:

    “Yesterday, saw thousands of activists hand out half a million leaflets demanding a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal at over 300 events in every region and nation of the UK, in an unprecedented display of the grassroots power of the country’s anti-Brexit campaigning organisations.

    “It may seem like the odds are stacked against us as a movement, but fighting for what you believe in is never easy.

    “We are short on time, but we have people power on our side. Together, are on the verge of something extraordinary.”

    Caroline Lucas MP, a leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, is expected to say:

    “We will be making the case in Parliament, but this is too big and too important to be determined solely by politicians.

    “So, it's up to you. If the public demand a People's Vote, politicians will fall in line.”

    Commenting, James McGrory, Executive Director of Open Britain, which is supporting the People’s Vote campaign, said:

    “Whether you think the Government will negotiate a good deal or bad deal, Brexit is definitely a big deal.

    “Brexit is not inevitable. What the Government comes back with, not what was promised in the referendum, will be the real deal. It should not be a done deal.

    “Brexit will affect everybody in the country, which is why it should not be left to 650 politicians to decide our future but 65 million people. That is why so many are demanding a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal.”

    Commenting, Tom Brufatto, Chair of Britain for Europe, which is supporting the People’s Vote campaign, said:

    “The People’s Vote campaign is clear. The terms of Brexit should not be stitched up behind closed doors by politicians and foisted on the country. The people must have a say, and that means a People’s Vote.

    “In every part of the UK, we will be hitting the streets in the coming weeks and months to drive home the message that a People’s Vote is the only fair and workable way of deciding whether our country should accept the final deal.”

    The People’s Vote campaign is backed by nine anti-Brexit groups, eight of which now operate out of a shared working space in London’s Millbank Tower: Open Britain, European Movement UK, Britain for Europe, Scientists for EU, Healthier IN, InFacts, Our Future Our Choice (OFOC), For our Future’s Sake (FFS), along with Wales for Europe.

  • Brexit-We have no chance in sorting this out

    The government and the country is clearly split on Brexit.
    We are therefore struggling to sort out an agreement with The EU..
    This will not be good for The UK or The EU.
    So where do we go. The financial data appears to show. If we leave there is not much to gain.
    Plus it is a very complicated to leave and we will never agree with the Irish borders and trade.
    When we voted in the referendum.We were not aware of the delays and problems that would happen.
    So far we have harmed the economy just talking about it.
    I know it is difficult to accept. We should never have had a referendum especially the way it was run.No info about the outcome.
    No preparation if we voted out.
    We have to correct this now.
    If we come out of the EU without agreeing it will be disaster.
    We have to reconsider our vote in the referendum. This means voting again to stay in or out. We have more knowledge now.
    It will hopefully be clearer then what direction we take. When its done. We all accept that as the way forward.

  • Second Referendum is our only hope

    The Election failed to show us any way forward.We are now in a worse situation.
    We have to reconsider our situation and ask the public to reconsider their situation NOW before we negotiate with the EU
    We need to have another referendum.
    We also need to state on the voting document
    If we vote out it will make us poorer.
    If we vote in our economy will be better

  • Brexit is still not looking well

    The government seem to be doing what governments are good at. Do every thing the population do not want.
    Most people probably voted out because the EU would not listen and would not put some control over immigration. I say control I do not mean preventing or creating state registers.
    I agree Human rights also made it difficult for governments to have some control ie to prevent the wrong people getting into a country. How far do we want to control. We will never be able to control everyone and why would we want to.

  • SECURITY ISSUES

    Most of the cameras installed in UK government sites appear to be made in China.
    Its time the orders were given to a company that is UK based.
    Hinkley Point Power Station the other issue- Will it ever get built maybe The Government takes that view.
    We will see how we get on with the high powered batteries concept that is built into houses to store wind and solar energy.

  • The UK Now

    Our main focus should be to deal with Brexit
    The panic is over and we appear to have calmed down. Everything is geared to EU finance or put it another way our finance that goes to the EU.
    We need to re structure all this so it works for us.
    We appear to be floating on air and need some solid policies to show we are taking the break with EU.
    The meeting of the Mayor of Paris and The Mayor of London was a good start.Most countries have Mayors and it needs to be used to link in with these countries.

  • Need some ACTION

    We are slowing the momentum of Brexit and its creating uncertain times for us and Europe.
    We now need to restore the economy before it dives.
    Reduce VAT to 15%
    Scrap NEW Stamp Duty Increases and Buy to Let extra Stamp Duty Charges.
    Start a National Council House Building Project.
    Offer building and development grants to industry and business.
    Offer EXPORT Incentives and enable Private or Public Companies to promote their products through Embassy networks
    Reduce Capital Gains Tax to 10%

  • Are things looking good

    Sounds like property prices are moving up again after Brexit and Osborne’s war on Buy to Lets.,
    We might be able to keep the Chinese out of our Nuclear Power stations ie with the failure in France similar production the American Problem and the Australian Problem.
    Brexit seems to be going into the slow lane.Not good if we want to develop our overseas trade. We need that overseas trade now. Why wait to develop trade contracts we are leaving anyway.

  • No to lower interest rates

    Lowering interest rates does not help us. We need the pound to get stronger. No a lot but just enough to stop companies in Europe surcharging us for their loss on selling
    to us with a lower pound.
    The Companies in Europe really need to get round this by selling their products in euros not pounds.However it appears they can make more money this way.
    Therefore lowering the interest rate seems to lower the pound and can boost exports and increase costs of imports. Plus It does not stimulate us to spend more or borrow more.
