JULY NEWSLETTER
 
Greetings!

We have a busy season ahead of us, packed with new classes and events. Please browse through our latest newsletter for more information on what's coming up soon.  

Paying attention to our listen skills and speech

Being aware the suffering caused by unmindful speech and the inability to listen to others, I am committed to cultivating loving speech and deep listening in order to bring joy and happiness to others and relieve others of their suffering. Knowing that words can create happiness or suffering, I am committed to learn to speak truthfully with words that inspire self-confidence, joy and hope. I am determined not to spread news that I do not know to be certain and not to criticize or condemn things of which I am not sure. I will refrain from uttering words that can cause division or discord or that can cause the family or the community to split apart. I will make every effort to reconcile all conflicts however small.

Is your child sitting the upcoming 11+ assessments this September?

The course is designed to calm and prepare the mind by reducing stress and teaching your child meditative techniques to practice at home.

These high-performance techniques of mantra (mind calming chanting), mudra (hand gestures) and visualisations (a technique used by top athletes) will enable your child to relax, deal with frustration and, will improve your child's memory and creativity.

As we are all aware if your child is over stimulated mentally and physically your child cannot succeed.
