After launching their first book together – The Present Moment ~ An Art Therapy Journal – Meg and Grace found themselves being asked by readers how they could become more mindful in their daily lives.
Meg has created and delivered professional development courses over the last fifteen years. Your Present Moment eCourse has been developed using the latest research on the physical, mental and emotional benefits of daily mindfulness practice.
Joined by her web developer sister, Kim and with new mandalas from Grace, Your Present Moment eCourse, will help you set up the new year with a fresh start on a mindful path.
You will be comfortable enough with computers to follow instructions via email on how to access the course materials.
Access to a printer will be useful, so you will be able to print off the beautiful new mandalas that Grace has created and also your certificate at the end of the course.
Headphones will be beneficial if listening to audio or visual elements of the course in public places!

Enrolments will continue up until the 5th day of the start month. We will also run courses similar to this again in future.
