The cost is £270, which includes the 16 hours of group tuition, weekly course notes, guided audio, ongoing online support and the 6hr retreat day. When and where is the course held? Tuesdays starting 25th September thru til 20th November (not including half-term week 23rd October) 19.30 - 21.30 Manor Green School Elizabeth Hawkes Way Maidenhead Berkshire SL6 3EQ. What is the retreat day? As part of your package you will be abe to join 1 retreat day for free (usually £50). The day runs 09.45 - 15.30 on a Saturday or Sunday, in or on the outskirts, of Maidenhead. There will be a retreat day booked in Autumn 2018, Early 2019 and Spring 2019 and you will be free to join whichever day suits you best. The retreat day is open to people who have attended any 8-week mindfulness course or for those who have an established meditation practice. What happens on the retreat day? Arrival is from 09.45 for teas and getting to know the group ready for a 10.00 start to a blissful day of mindfulness. I will be guiding you through all of the practices that will have been learned during an 8-week course, including: The Body Scan Mindful Movement Sitting Meditation Mindful Lunch Mindful Walking Mountain Meditation Breathing Space. Most of the day will be in silence but of course there will be opportunities to ask questions throughout and there will be plenty of time at the end for everyone to chat about the day. Silence for some may be perceived as a being negative from either being ignored as a child or an adult, being told to be quiet, for example. Silence, however, can be seen as a gift, an opportunity to be ourselves, under no pressure to communicate to anyone. The experience could be an opportunity to learn how to relate to silence in a different way, becoming comfortable in its prescence. Fruit snacks and teas will be provided but please bring a light lunch with you. Chairs will be provided but please feel free to bring along any meditation stools, cushions and blankets or anything else you would like to bring with you, to be as comfortable as possible. Watch this space for more retreat days scheduled later on in 2018 and 2019. Please feel free to contact Tricia to discuss the course in more detail or to see whether it is for you on 07776 132083 or tricia@themindhub.co.uk

  • Game Spot Reviews: Return Of The Obra Dinn Review - The Good Ship

    Like Lucas Pope's previous game, Papers, Please, Return of the Obra Dinn is primarily concerned with processing information. In the latter, you play as an insurance clerk assessing claims on a mysteriously abandoned ship rather than a customs agent assessing documents at the border of a totalitarian country, but in both games, you are presented with fragments of data and asked to check their veracity through cross-reference and deductive logic.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Lego DC Super-Villains Review: Mediocre Mischief-Makers

    It's been obvious for a very long time that Lego games iterate more than innovate. If you pick up a Lego title, you are guaranteed a wholesome romp in whichever licensed universe is at hand. Everything is breakable and spits out glittery, golden collectibles when destroyed. Beloved characters are Lego-fied and reenact their famous antics with an extra dollop of cartoon absurdity. Those qualities remain appealing, but every so often, developer Traveller's Tales stumbles onto an idea that requires an extra bit of creativity to really make it sing. Sometimes TT steps up to the plate, like it did for Lego City Undercover and Lego Dimensions.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Dark Souls Remastered Switch Review: A Very Special Revisit

    When it comes to delivering a memorable and tense experience, not many games can match up to the original Dark Souls. Many fans swear by the approach From Software takes with its stoic and uncompromisingly bleak action-RPG series where one wrong move can cost you dearly, and it's become one of the most challenging and anxiety-inducing franchises in recent memory.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Review - Queen Of Cards

    With the Witcher trilogy, developer CD Projekt Red established that it's capable of making compelling role-playing games with tough decisions, hearty combat, and engrossing lore. In Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, all but one of these aspects has persisted. This prequel is as captivating narratively as some of the Witcher series' best tales, filled with gut-wrenching decisions that have far-reaching consequences. The only difference is that instead of fighting with a sword, you battle with cards.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Reigns: Game Of Thrones Review: Swipe Wight

    After nearly a decade, the end of the Game of Thrones TV show is in sight. Fortunately, fans of the series have new things to look forward to, but even for those with faith in George RR Martin, the prospect of a new Song of Ice and Fire novel looks increasingly unlikely. Similarly, what the future holds for video game adaptations of the franchise is unclear. Telltale is all but dead, and for a series that has proven to be such a phenomenal success in other mediums, it's surprising that there haven't been more game adaptations.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Review - Big Changes

    As a continuation of the Black Ops subseries, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 both benefits from and is limited by its past. All three of its major modes--multiplayer, Zombies, and the new battle royale mode Blackout--pull from and build upon previous games. Multiplayer is largely successful in its mix of old and new, while Zombies struggles more with dated elements. Blackout, though, strikes an excellent balance, putting a clever Call of Duty spin on a genre entirely new to the series.

  • Game Spot Reviews: SoulCalibur 6 Review - Transcending History

    What truly distinguishes SoulCalibur from its genre contemporaries is a pervading sense of adventure. It tells a grand tale of knights and ninjas, axe-wielding goliaths and pirate warriors, all struggling over mythical weapons of good and evil. It accents this with a rousing orchestral score and grandiose narrations about entwined destinies and inescapable fates. Sure, deep and rewarding mechanics are at the heart of every good fighting game--and SoulCalibur VI certainly has that--but for this series, adventure has always been the soul.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Armello Review - Nintendo Switch Update

    [Editor's Note: We have updated this review to reflect our experiences with Armello's Nintendo Switch version]

    Armello's hybrid of tactics, dice-rolling, and political intrigue has aged better than expected in the three years since its release, and on Nintendo Switch, the game is almost as formidable as it is on PC. Its charming blend of animal kingdom hijinks and turn-based strategy gameplay has yet to be replicated by a newer, flashier title; Armello has definitely held up well, and its uniqueness is undeniable. However, there are a few major differences between PC version and Switch releases, and not all of them are positive.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Starlink: Battle for Atlas Review - Endless Space

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas is a game about flying through space, exploring new planets, and shooting a lot of aliens. Set in a seamless open-world galaxy, it sees you pushing back occupying forces by battling enemies, setting up outposts, and completing simple tasks set by your allies. For better and worse, it's a distinctly Ubisoft game, from the huge spaces (seven separate planets and the vast depths of space that separate them) to the maps overloaded with activities. But thankfully, Starlink is not quite so full that it feels bloated--just full enough so that there's always something for you to be working towards.

  • Game Spot Reviews: Child of Light Review

    There are times I want to be sad, when I'd rather be all alone, quietly thinking about my life, or hugging a loved one to forget about the day's trouble. Child of Light embraces that melancholy beautifully and its various elements cultivate a doleful mood. From the overgrown foliage threatening to overtake the neglected environments to the tired inhabitants wasting away their days, there's a somber tone that permeates this storybook adventure. I was struck by that desperation in the whimsical poetry of the dialogue; conversations are constructed with overtly meticulous rhymes that betray the bewilderment building below the surface. And the docile piano melody made my heart all the heavier.

  • Government have got immigration wrong

    We need workers for Care Homes, Hostels, Restaurants, Hotels

    English people are reluctant to work in these sectors

    The governments plan is to ensure there are no immigrants for these sectors.

    Once they do that these companies will have to reduce their services or close.

    No Hope for us

  • MPs still don't have the answers to Brexit

    Let the people have a second referendum.

    The questions to ask is "Stay In or Out" (Maybe using the same terms as a Norway or Canadian solution)

    We have got fed up of years of weak discussions and uncertainties that are creating a poor economy.
    The government is also not focusing on the real problems in The UK.

    We do not want a General Election. The Government can't sort it out and nor can Labour.

    Let the people have a second referendum and lets move on and get rid of the uncertainties

  • Brexit Cabinet Paper is a weak compromise

    The time is coming for The Government to admit it is unable to sort Brexit out.
    It has cost us money and time and they are no further forward.
    They are getting stuck into a black hole.
    We can only now give it back to the voter to decide.
    Leave without a deal or stay in as we were. There is clearly no advantage for a midway compromise without power.
    Wake up now and get one direction in or out

  • Why Focus on Africa and not Europe

    Our trade with Europe is hundreds of Billions. Why is The Government having a trade mission to Africa. Our trade with them is less than 10 Billion.

    Why are we pushing a Cabinet Brexit document to the EU that does not improve our chances of promoting trade to America.

    Why is the government focusing on a compromise with The EU that is worse than being in The EU,

    It is clear that The Government is unable to agree themselves and they are coming up with a document that is a compromise and is a complete waste of time.

    Its not a good idea to destroy ourselves. It is better to stay in Europe and push for reforms within the Union.

  • Brexit is still a mess. ANOTHER REFERENDUM PLEASE

    The EU and Government cant get it together. The people need to act again. They now have better information.

    We are all beginning to realize we voted for something that cant work. Nobody can make their minds up.

    Its costing the country millions in loss trade research and development. The government are in turmoil

    The EU are doing their best to block brexit. The government cant agree what they want. It is an impossible task.

    Lets get rid of all this mess and confusion. Have another referendum NOT an election.

    The choice is do you want to stay in.
    or Exit with probably a harder brexit.

    We will then have a better direction from the people. If we decide to stay in All is saved no discussions.
    If we decide again to leave a harder exit is the probable answer.
    Either way we can then improve the country with the peoples confirmed choice.
    If we have to stay in we can then use our power to change the European Union to our advantage and use the changing policies in the EU or even bend the rules like other members do..

  • 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.
