Sunday in London was a perfect day to hit the reset button.
This thought provoking Be Better London event was hosted by Local Motion Studios in South London.
Led by Bj Rule of Crossfit City Road we kicked off with some mindful movement, focusing on primal patterns and getting us reconnected with our bodies. This was followed with a guided meditation led by myself, preparing us for the wealth of information we were about to receive from our three diverse speakers.
Tim Cook, known as The Raw Londoner was the first keynote speaker. His personal blend of humour, information and practical application blended well, as he invited us to "Consider going plant based. Become a Biohacker."
Yasmin Ibrahim (The Spiritual Rebel) followed suit. As always, unapologetically true to herself she shared how disease in the body can be created by our emotions, and what we can do to help heal ourselves. Her own personal journey dealing with cancer and abuse was both inspiring and powerful.
We closed the event with a talk called Lynden & Me. In it I touched on my own experience on dealing with grief and death, how we can best navigate our own grief, and support those who are going through it.
Death is something that we receive little to no training or preparation for, but its a conversation that we all need to have, as its the one thing we can all be certain of. Plus when viewed as the flipside of the coin to life, it can help liberate us and live a more powerful life inline with our true calling.
