Reflecting on the Mindfulness Association Conference last week – feelings of warmth and happiness flood my body and a smile appears on my face. I’m sitting here looking through all the photos that I took over a few days – and again I see laughter and happiness reflected in the images before me. So I thought I would share some moments of joy and happiness with you.
Life can be very serious at times but, as Duncan shares in his blog this week, a sense of community when people get together and share a common purpose can bring about feelings of joy and togetherness. This is clearly reflected in the sequence of photos I have selected to share with you.
Everyone loves a story. It is built in our psyche from our ancestors telling stories around the fire. At the conference there were stories told and knowledge shared. Mindful Heroes and MSc students told their stories. Lama Yeshe shared many meaningful stories about his life. Lead tutors ran masterclasses, sharing their expertise and our special guest – Charlie Morley, delighted the crowd with his success stories of his own life and work with veterans.
We will be collating our stories, photos and videos and sharing them with you over the coming weeks. If you were at the conference then please do share your thoughts, stories and photos with us to share.
