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!
Do contact John by clicking here to e-mail. if you would like to give the three week programme a go (there is no cost). In the programme four daily actions are detailed to make as a habit of ordinary life – designed to re-orientate our thinking and attentive capacities. These practices are proven to have a real impact on the way we live.
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.
Thursday 1st February 8.00-9.15pm (Fully booked)
Thursday 22nd February 8.00- 9.15pm
Thursday 1st March 8.00- 9.15pm
The sessions are popular so places need to be booked, please contact John.
