  • 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 positive 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. The Course A comprehensive 8 week course learning the foundations of mindfulness, the science that supports it and a variety of mindfulness practices that will help you to cultivate a more mindful way of life. This course is a combination of the two 8-week models, Mindfulness Based Stress Reflief (MBSR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) developed at the University of Massachusetts and Oxford University. When are where is the course held? Tuesdays starting 30th January thru til 27th March(not including half-term week 13th February) 19.30 - 21.30 Manor Green School Elizabeth Hawkes Way Maidenhead Berkshire SL6 3EQ. What is the retreat day? The retreat day will be 10.00 - 15.00 on a Sunday. During the day I will guide you through all of the practices that you will have learnt during the 8-week course, and there will be some periods of silence. This day is not only a blissful opportunity to enjoy some peace and calm but also a chance to ask any questions you may have. Fruit snacks and teas will be provided but please bring a light lunch with you, along with any meditation stools, cushions and blankets. Chairs will be provided. There will be a number of retreat days scheduled for 2018 and you are free to choose which one you would like to attend.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

    For Info
    The European Union is a politico-economic union of 28 member states. It has an area of 4,324,782 km², and an estimated population of over 508 million, and operates through a hybrid system of supranational ... Wikipedia

  • 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.


    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.

  • Hinkley Point Power Station

    May be it is time to dump this project. EDF will find it difficult to complete this project. It is expensive electricity. China will be in the middle and it could be a political nightmare. We need to consider smaller nuclear units or push other projects such as gas wind and solar. Keep it small and not link it to countries outside Europe or America. Osborne was not on sound ground when he went for Chinese investment on such a large project.Maybe
    The UK Government needs to raise money and create an ENERGY BOND-also use EU Grants and Consider UK and European Companies

  • EUROZONE What do be do

    So when we vote to leave or stay.
    Where will we be.
    If we leave we be in a confused state.
    Bit like leaving your home. Directions and bills have to be sorted.
    Same with the country. Anything European will need re thinking or changing.
    This will create a vast amount of work.More work for the state.
    If we take the easy way and vote in. The workload will be minimum.
    The problem we will have is The Euro-zone is like The Roman Empire. We all want the
    status to be in it but in the end its not what the people wanted. It may then fall like
