‘Inspired’ … ‘Reflection time’ … ‘Optimism’ … ‘Energy’ … ‘Gentleness’ … ‘Openness’
… Just some of the words that visitors have used to sum up their experience at The Mindful Living Show. It is difficult to capture the essence of this unique show in a few words and explain quite what visitors gain by attending.
On 6th – 7th March 2020, you have a unique opportunity to reflect, experience and learn more about mindfulness, meditation and sleep.
Just imagine how much knowledge and insight you could gain from over 120 seminars and experiential sessions, in dedicated workshop rooms – covering a multitude of practices and wide-reaching health and wellbeing subjects from mindful movement to creativity, from sleep issues to mental health, from empowerment to creativity, from spiritual insight to self-compassion, from sound therapy to lucid dreaming, from mantras to ‘touch’, from relationships to parenting, from waking up well to mindful nutrition – and much more from leaders and experts in the world of health, wellbeing, mindfulness and beyond.
As the largest event in the country dedicated to mindfulness, meditation and sleep the speaker programme is second to none. Set across 4 conference-style theatres, you will hear from renowned authors, scientists, experts and teachers. It is a unique opportunity to meet them, enhance your knowledge, understand their thinking, get involved in their practice sessions and ask them questions.
But, the show offers something much deeper than simply learning…
… A ‘connectedness’ – a coming together as a group with warm, friendly, kind individuals – a feeling of acceptance and compassion that is quite unlike any other festival, show or event.
Many people together, but still a feeling of peace, reflection and tranquility. That may be as a result of the calming music drifting throughout the atrium, the attraction of the beautiful, abundant flowers dotted around the exhibition, the scent of sensuous aromatherapy oils, the group meditations taking place all around – or maybe it is the kindness, compassion, genuine interest in each other and desire to celebrate the vitality of life, that emanates from everyone present. And NEW for 2020 … an evening of deep relaxation.
Close your eyes and just breath for a moment. That is what our Friday night is all about. Being in the present, centred and calm. Launching this year for the very first time, we are delighted to bring you ‘The Wind-down’ – sound, senses and space. A blissful few hours to take you into a world of rest and relaxation and introducing you to an array of new sensations.
Experiential, inspirational, creative, physical and something for all ages
And then, there are the features. The Creative Calm Space offers explorations for nimble fingers and imaginative minds, try your hand at mindful activities such as mindful art or calligraphy that push your creativity. Focus on your breath and your physical being in The Mind & Body Space, which offers tai chi, yoga and mindful walking. And our Taster Zone gives you the opportunity to enjoy group meditation and hands-on activities with our exhibitors.
Our ‘Mindful Minis’ feature offers families the opportunity to explore mindfulness for the young, bringing parents and children together in practical sessions where benefits can be explored, and different approaches examined and tested. Practice mindful creative and physical activities together and learn techniques designed to support young minds.
Our event is all about meditation and live practice. So, if time out is what you need to explore and reflect on the learnings from the experts, the Guided Meditation Space offers peace and solitude – a simple, tranquil area away from the main event … try different practices, enjoy a journey of discovery and visualisation with our guided meditations.
