www.freemeditation.com is a wonderful and generous online resource dedicated to teaching the pure meditation technique and experience of Sahaja Yoga Meditation. Sahaja Yoga Meditation is meant for everyone who desires to find his or her true self. Developed by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi in 1970, Sahaja Yoga Meditation involves the awakening of a subtle spiritual energy known as the Kundalini which lies dormant in the sacrum bone at the base of the spine in three-and-a-half coils.
We highly recommend this website as it explains the whole subject of meditation through informative and inspirational articles. The site hosts archives of meditation music, educational videos and a free 10 class online meditation course (hosted at onlinemeditation.org). This website certainly honours the wish of the founder of Sahaja Yoga Meditation to freely teach meditation. A worthwhile visit!

Mind Body & Soul
Mind Body & Soul Weekends are annual holistic exhibition shows in Northampton, Peterborough, Birmingham and Cheltenham organised by holistic organisation Natural Living. Mind Body & Soul Weekends’ Birmingham event held in the first weekend of November hosts a collection of stimulating speakers, interesting exhibitors and authentic readers and sensitive’s. In total the Birmingham event will have over 50 exhibitors and talks and workshops in 3 Workshop Rooms.
Mind Body & Soul Weekends posts a large amount of content on Social Media that deserves a special mention as their content gives you a great insight into their events. Mind Body & Soul Weekends launched their Facebook page this year; we are really impressed with their use of photo albums on the Facebook page. Mind Body & Soul Weekends created a Facebook album of nearly 50 photos from their exhibition show at Peterborough and each photo contained a description and named the practitioners in the photos wherever possible. Mind Body & Soul Weekends’ Flickr account is also worth visiting as it contains great photo albums from over 10 exhibition shows from as far back as 2008.
Natural Living’s Mind Body & Soul Weekend in Birmingham takes place on Saturday 3rd - Sunday 4th November.
