Last week Richard led an interesting practice based on the wise sayings of a famous celebrity and was very well received by all. It kept everyone's attention and allowed us all to find something to contemplate on during our time together. The other practice we began to explore was a Wise Mind practice. Based on a DBT intervention we started the process of discovering how to come to wise decisions. It is something we will return to. We are adding practices to the website. Hover over the mindfulness page until 'practices' appears.

Here is the book we base our course on: Finding Peace in a Frantic World by Mark Williams and Danny Penman.
It really is a very good book giving you all the information you need. We find that people thoroughly enjoy the courses because it gives them a framework and discipline to practice what keeps them on an even keel. Get in toiuch if you want to come on the course or want to know more.
