21 Days to live…a happy life

In this programme John outlines a self-help course of easy-to-do practices which re-orientate the way we think and then experience life. The practices are drawn from a range of research and offer a really positive and helpful guide to live happy lives even when everything is chaotic, hum-drum or just busy!

If you would like to receive a copy of the programme - there is no cost - please contact John by clicking here to e-mail.

Sessions at Netley Marsh CE Infant School : these sessions are led by John Reeve. In each session 5 different exercises are introduced which we all try out – the exercises range from sitting, to walking, stretching, in the school hall and sometimes outside (if the weather permits) – all with attention to our breathing and the movement of our bodies.
