Mindful Living

I returned to the second year of the Mindful Living Show at the Business Design Centre on the 1st and 2nd June last week. I was invited by Dawattie Basdeo who had a Stand for her 'Magnificent Me Magnificent You' range and copies of 'Nature's Rainbow Mindfulness Meditations for Teens' album (music composed by yours truly).

The Mindful Living Show offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the art of mindfulness and the various ways in which it can benefit daily life.

On the first day, it was lovely to see that some businesses from last year had returned and it was nice to see some familiar faces. Everyone's positive energy created such a calming Zen like atmosphere and it was fun meeting visitors. I couldn't experience any of the seminars but I did get to wander around every now and then to meet the other exhibitors.

I got to play some Singing Bowls which was great, especially as I recorded them last year!

On the second day I was able to catch one seminar in the morning with Will Young. He talked about the importance of listening, the use of language and having boundaries. His delivery was fantastic! Down to earth, open, insightful and to my surprise, very humorous! He had the whole audience laughing on more than one occasion which was lovely! I didn't get to speak to him afterwards as he had to rush off to do a matinee, however Dawattie cleverly managed to slip him a copy of our CD Nature's Rainbow Mindfulness Meditations for Teens!

Later on that day, Dawattie gave a workshop in the Demo Zone on breathing techniques. Unfortunately I didn't get any photos of this as I decided to take part. I'm glad I did because it was really good and I learned a few techniques I didn't know about.

It was wonderful to be part of the Mindful Living Show again this year and I'm looking forward to returning next year. A nice venue, lovely staff, well organised and great people involved which left everyone feeling uplifted, inspired and energised.
