Yoga ManMeditation : Travelling Light

This visualisation will prepare you for the lessons to come. It helps you to dump unwanted baggage and to pick up news tools and resources for the journey ahead.

Make a note in your journal of how you feel before, during and after it.

Note it is best listened to on headphones and definitely not while driving.

Turn back timeTimeful Task : Random Acts of Kindfulness

For the following week, each day perform at least one Random Act of Kindness [ROAK], with the following caveats:

1. Make sure they are random and not premeditated.

2. Ensure your motivation is not to receive one back from the person you bestow yours upon.

3. Become mindful of how what goes around, comes around so, in your journal, make a note of any kindnesses others unexpectedly bestow on you.
