Mindful Living Show 2019

I'm excited to be returning to this year's Mindful Living Show at The Business Design Centre running tomorrow, Friday 15th and Saturday 16th March! For the last two years, I have managed the Magnificent Me Magnificent You stall with author Dawattie Basdeo and we have always had a great time at this show! We will have copies of the album 'Nature’s Rainbow', the mindfulness meditation for teens album we made together, as well as other lovely things created by Dawattie.

Here's information about the show...

The Mindful Living Show is an annual event that offers a unique opportunity to learn more about the art of mindfulness and meditation and the different ways in which it can benefit your life. It's two unique days of learning, fun and relaxation.

Ticket price includes free access to over 70 seminars and practice sessions with some of the greatest speakers, authors, teachers and minds in the worlds of mindfulness, meditation and relaxation including: Russell Brand, Russell Grant, Vidyamala Burch, Dr Patrizia Collard and many others (which you can see on the event website).

Plus super proud that Dawattie is also a Speaker this year! Her presentation will be on Friday 12:00 - 12:30pm.

"Magnificent Me Magnificent You - We Are One"
A fun and playful session exploring cosmic flow within and without using the tools of yoga, meditation, mindfulness, breath.

Plus, your ticket will give you access to the NEW co-located show, including all seminars of - THE SLEEP SHOW (taking place on the same dates)!

The show includes access to a range of fantastic features that will inform, educate and inspire, allowing you to pick up tips from the experts, further your practice and gain a greater understanding of how mindfulness can impact all areas of your life.

Nominated for an Award!

My first Storytime events of the year in February were absolutely brilliant! I love all of the libraries I visited and it was a pleasure to meet so many lovely children and families. There were about 100 people at Hammersmith Library alone! I'm definitely beginning to see great attendance results from online promotion and word of mouth spreading around London! My Storytimes are starting to feel like little performances! It truly was a magical week for me! Read more here: Billy's Circus at the Libraries.

Speaking of Storytime with Anna-Christina...

Anna-Christina from Music Audio Stories nominated for a Whats On 4 Kids Award

I'm delighted to announce I have been nominated for a What's on 4 Kids Award in the category of 'Most Loved Volunteer'! 💖 I have taught hundreds of children at libraries and community events all over London with my Music Audio Stories! 'Storytime with Anna-Christina' is brought to libraries free of charge so that everyone can participate and enjoy my events! I dedicate a lot of my time and energy as a volunteer and so to be nominated for this award, truly means a great deal to me. Details of this can be found here: Nominate Anna-Christina!

Author, Composer Anna-Christina from Music Audio Stories
This month, I have meetings with festival organisers and at children's theatres, recording sessions and I'll be organising and preparing for my Easter Library Tour 2019!

Plus I have a lot of work to do on the production of the new Easter story itself, including recording all of the character's voices and narration, as well as the mixing and mastering of the audiobook! And I will be reviewing new illustrations for my first picture book and finishing the score for my latest Music Audio Story, which is going to be an epic one!

I will also be back at this year's Mindful Living Show but more on this in my next Blog Post...

There really is a lot going on! Away I must go and hop to it all...

March Madness indeed!
