Mindfulness is essentially “the ability of the mind to stay with its object, focused and undistracted, for as long as someone wants” (Jamyang Centre 2017). In this super busy, fast paced life that we live in, there are so many distractions that can make it difficult to create some inner space from the thoughts and emotions that tend to endlessly circle in our minds. More and more people are learning how to use mindfulness to help to create that much need space. Further benefits of mindfulness include:

- Greater levels of happiness in everyday life

The nutritional health scan that we are including in the weekend’s programme, as an optional extra, works through reading electromagnetic wave signals emitted by the human body. These wave signals represent the specific state of the human body. The emitted electromagnetic wave signals are different under the different conditions of the human body, such as health, sub-health, disease, etc. Our nutrition scan will highlight the status of your body’s vitamin and trace mineral levels, identifying which areas you may need to address in order to encourage optimum wellness (detailing levels of A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, D3, E and K, as well as calcium, iron, zinc, selenium, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, copper, cobalt, manganese, iodine and more). This is a fantastic way of taking the guess work out of what nutrients you lack, saving you future time and money!
