Modern Mindfulness for Busy Digital Lives

with Rohan Gunatillake
17th January 2018, 19:00 – 20:30
Brockway Room, Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

Rohan Gunatillake

 

The majority of people who are interested in mindfulness don’t actually do anything about it, and the reasons they give are always the same: I don’t have time; it’s too hippy and I can’t afford to turn all my technology off. Rohan Gunatillake is one of the most original and creative voices in mindfulness and meditation and he calls this problem the time problem, the hippy problem and the technology problem. In this session you will learn how to solve all three.

You will learn:

• How to meditate wherever you are and whatever you’re doing
• How to see your phone as part of your mindfulness practice and it still be legit
• Why meditation doesn’t have to be something done in silence and by yourself
• How to approach mindfulness with playfulness, rather than just another thing on your to-do list

Through his company, Mindfulness Everywhere, Rohan Gunatillake makes great products, which combine meditation, technology and design. Best known as the creator of the bestselling app buddhify, he is also the author of ‘Modern Mindfulness’ and was named by ‘Wired’ magazine in their Smart List of 50 people who will change the world.

Fall in love with yourself, with life and with another

with Katherine Baldwin
12th February 2018, 19:00 – 20:30
Brockway Room, Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL

Katherine Baldwin

 

In order to love another, we know we have to love ourselves first, but what does self-love actually look like and are we practising it, or are we secretly neglecting or mistreating ourselves? How would our lives and relationships be different if we truly valued, esteemed and trusted ourselves? What if we felt good enough, instead of waiting for others to make us feel good?

Katherine Baldwin knows the dangers of craving external love and validation as well as the transformative and healing power of self-love. By building her self-esteem from the inside out, she went from being a single, highly stressed news journalist with a binge eating disorder to a woman in love, living with her fiancé by the sea and working at her true passion – coaching others to have healthy relationships and find love.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Strengthen your emotional core to boost confidence and self-esteem
  • Connect deeply to your feelings and your intuition
  • Understand any blocks to love and relationship
  • Prioritise activities that make your heart sing
  • End self-sabotage and find the courage to be true to yourself

Katherine Baldwin is a relationships coach, mid-life mentor and author of How to Fall in Love – A 10-Step Journey to the Heart. She coaches women and men to have healthy, authentic relationships with themselves and others, to walk through their fears and pursue their passions. She has a Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy Skills from the Westminster Pastoral Association and 14 years of experience helping herself and others recover from self-sabotaging behaviours including eating disorders, workaholism and dysfunctional relationship patterns. Katherine frequently writes and speaks on relationships and personal development for the national media.
