Ninth Day of Christmas- Concentration
We all know how important it is to beat that particularly successful family member (let’s face it, it’s usually Dad) in board games. They sailed through to victory in Risk, Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit throughout your entire childhood and this needs to be avenged. You can achieve this through top-notch performance that will leave observers in silent awe. “What excellent Monopoly strategy”, they will say breathlessly. “Wait until you see them with a Cluedo board”, others will reply. By taking up the practise of meditation you’ll be hearing praise like this constantly, and this year, finally, could be YOUR YEAR. (more…)
Fifth Day of Christmas – Sleep
Christmas is too exciting for sleep! And you have to practice to stay up and see Santa. Sure, you may be thirty two years old, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get caught up in the spirit of the thing. Except, if you think about it, you do have a week ahead of you so using meditation to help you get as much shut-eye as possible is really a very good idea. (more…)
Christmas is indisputably brilliant. It’s the only time where you are officially mandated by your family, peers and possibly even the government to indulge yourself to such an illogical extent that if you did it at any other time of year, people would be legitimately worried about you. But like every party that lasts for two weeks, Christmas is also something of an endurance test. Buying the people you love presents, eating 15 roasts every 48 hours and waking up to Bucks Fizz every day is bloody hard work. So we decided to show you all the ways meditation can help!
By tempering out every aspect of the Christmas emotional roller coaster mentioned below, meditation will help you breeze through the whole thing with as much style and grace that it’s possibly to muster when you are chewing down your sixth mince pie and wearing a sparkly Christmas jumper. (more…)
We had a really interesting group med the other night and it was evident that the majority of folks in attendance want to get to a place of peace and fulfillment double quick! This inspired me to enliven the phenomena of the hero’s journey, which in true mythical fashion, feels worthy of a retelling…
When I was growing up I never really understood what mythology was all about. It felt like it was some weird and fantastical storytelling that had absolutely no relevance to my life. I remember finding out a friend of ours at university, Adam, was studying mythology as part of his Classics degree and wondering “what is the point in that?”!
Little did I realise that all these legendary re-tellings were not merely conceived as entertainment, but were in fact cunning devices for passing wisdom and guidance on to future generations.
