Mindful Mornings is our series of morntime events dedicated to waking the body and mind up well, before they get caught up in the busyness of each day. Each event begins with half an hour of mindfulness exercise (past events involved guided meditation, gentle but energising yoga, sound healing), which is followed by a short, intimate discussion centered arounded self-guided meditation techniques, and how and what to eat first thing in the morning. Guests are then provided with a deeply nourishing breakfast, made from natural ingredients, and free from gluten, dairy or refined sugar. Our aim is for these events to provide a moment of calm before the storm of each day, helping attendees to start the day feeling balanced, grounded, centred, positive, energised and in control.

Most of our events will take place on Wednesday mornings, as we think this is a crucial time for reflection and intention setting. We can reflect on occurrences - whether positive or negative - that may have taken place at the beginning of the week, and reset anything that may be out of balance or bringing us down. We can also take this time to be grateful for things that are going just fine, and can focus on setting new intentions for the remainder of the week. Most of our events will take place between 7am and 9am - a peacful time when the city is only just beginning to stir. Rising with the sun, you'll notice a unique energy within. We have a unique energy in the mornings because we're recently rested, and are rising and waking in line with the Sun and Earth. Instead of allocating 'me time' after work, or after dinner, or after your evening chores (when you'll often feel too exhausted to do much at all), schedule it in as part of your morning regime, when you can truly appreciate it and make the most of it. The way you wake will set the tone, mood and energy for the rest of the day ahead of you.

If you can't make our morning events, from time to time we also hold evening events centered on winding down well, in order to wake up well the following morning. We believe that every great day starts the night before. You can eat a good breakfast and give yourself an extra half an hour in the mornings, but if you haven't slept well or fully, neither of these things is likely to effect how well your body and mind feel, and function. Our aim is to encourage the body to transition out of a tense state, caused by the demands of the day, into a calm and centred state, to slow the body and mind down in order to welcome and prepare for deep relaxation and sound sleep.

Just like our Mindful Mornings events, Mindful Mealtimes will begin with a mindful exercise (such as meditation, sound healing, yin / restorative yoga, tea ceremony, art and journaling), which will be followed by a brief pre-meal breathing excerise, to prepare the body for digestion and absorption. The evening nourishment will be enjoined as a communal feast, and will consist of three courses, made only from natural ingredients and without gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Each dish is designed to be easily digestible in order to keep your body and metabolism on a calm level, whilst still functioning optimally. The menu will utilise deeply nutritious herbs, spices and other fresh produce prepared using simple methods, in order to effortlessly provide the body and mind with what it needs as the day comes to a close. The aim is to rest and reset the system, and to avoid demanding too much effort and energy from it at a time when it is preparing to shut down. Whilst our internal processes are still in full swing as we sleep, we want this to take place on a cellular level, rather than a physical level (which will only keep us awake).
