Always wanted to try qi gong but haven't got round to it. Have some material by Shifu Yan Lei I plan to get started with though :) And some other ideas.

....see what your local council comes up with - ours has an Active Hastings Scheme where you can do lots of activities for around 2.50 an hr.  I go twice a week and in June theres an outdoor qui gong event free every wednesday.  I would imagine most areas will have these schemes :)

I went to an open day at the buddhist centre in bethnal green and that's where I first heard of it. I'm a complete mindful convert. Bought the book and am about to set time aside to meditate. It's one of those things that makes so much sense and seems odd that I hadn't thought of all this before!!

Get the app and get started!

Tenzin palmo is another buddhist nun i became interested in when i read her book "Cave in the Snow" in the 90's, she is the most amazing, interesting, down to earth woman, born in London who spent l2 yrs in meditation in a cave and has and is doing wonderful work esp at the moment training young suitable nuns to bring back the old dakini tradition - here is a website for anyone interested.

I too love to join. I live in Cambridge but not too far to go down to Lindon! My life is basically related to Buddhism but I never though about 'mindfulness' until recently. I am personally in period of changing life and struggling from emotional ups and downs. I do try some practice of mindfulness but so hard to just observe my emotions...
