MEDITATE WITH JOY IN COCKERMOUTH


If you’re searching for a way to: * de-stress * relax


* attain calm


* improve concentration * cultivate happiness,


Meditation can be a great way to help yourself, for the long-term.


I offer meditation courses and drop-in meditation groups in Cockermouth. I am an Associate Teacher with The Meditation Centre, Dent and I teach the simple, yet powerful, classical yogic meditation technique that is taught at Dent. The technique is not religious and is suitable for those of any faith, belief or lifestyle.


In my courses, Learn to Meditate with Joy, I teach the technique step-by-step and answer your questions about meditation and how to build your own daily meditation practice. I address misconceptions about meditation, clearing away confusion and obstacles that may have stopped you from enjoying meditation, or put you off even trying it. I explain the benefits of meditation, the process of the release of stress and how meditation can transform your life.


I teach Learn to Meditate with Joy as a full day, or a series of two half-days. Private bookings are also available.


I also lead drop-in meditation groups, Meditate with Joy, at Cockermouth town-centre venues. These evening (weekly) and daytime (fortnightly) groups will support you with your meditation and let you share the special energy of meditating in a group. They’re also a great place to start if you’re new to meditation.


My meditation courses and drop-in groups are suitable for all, from absolute beginners to experienced meditators.


See above for details of upcoming courses and drop-in meditation groups up until Christmas

nutrition with jackie ~ DON’T BE S.A.D. ~


National Chocolate week was recently celebrated. So, you might have been expecting a piece on its health benefits. Fear not, I'm writing one for Christmas. The pressing need now is Vitamin D.


The sun is lower in the sky at this time of year. Leaving aside the fact that hardy Cumbrians can be seen out in shorts and T-shirts at any time of year, there simply isn't enough UVB from October to March for our skin to make Vitamin D. The UV index has to be a minimum of 3. It's only 1 as I write this in September with a forecast of 3, briefly over lunchtime.


I'm keen where possible, on getting nutrients from food. The best sources are oily fish, egg yolks, liver and full fat dairy but you're unlikely to get enough this way. Supplements can be helpful. Look for Vitamin D3; D2 is only half as effective. The strength might be labelled by weight in micrograms (µg) or by international units (IU) which relate to biological activity. For Vitamin D3, 1 µg is equivalent to 40 IU. PHE recommend 10 µg/400 IU a day which is


moderate; studies have found that less than about 600-800IU is ineffective. You may need year-round supplements if you're on statins because we make it from cholesterol. Vitamin D is fat soluble so it can build up and we each absorb it differently. Your doctor can do a blood test to make sure you're not overdosing.


What about Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.)? A special lamp can compensate for the lack of light. Add Vitamin D which supports your health in many ways, including SAD.


Top tips – take Vitamin D supplements this winter.
