Festive fun and frolics!
It’s been another amazing month here at the Museum of Happiness. We’re now truly getting into the swing of things at our new home and feeling very grateful to be able to dedicate so much of our time to spreading happiness!
Peace, love and PARTYING!
It’s been a bit of a party-filled extravaganza down at the MOH during the run up to Xmas!
We hosted our first Inner Peace Party - thanks to all who attended this absolutely joyous occasion! The ecstatic dance session saw the museum transform into a disco dance floor - we will be sure to hold another session soon! A huge thank you to all our wonderful speakers and session leaders. As always, it was so lovely seeing people connect and forging friendships.
We were also lucky enough to help Yulife and 3FaithsForum to celebrate the holiday season and learn some stress management tips in the process! Thank you to all those who participated and for being so open and getting stuck in!
It was also our absolute pleasure to host a birthday party for one of our biggest supporters, Natalie, for her epic contribution to our crowdfunder campaign. If it wasn’t for her there’s a huge chance we wouldn’t be sat here writing this!
Experience is the teacher of all things
We’ve just launched the new Museum of Happiness Experience and the sessions so far have been really magical. It’s been a real privilege to give all kinds of people a taste of gratitude, laughter yoga and mindfulness with a liberal sprinkling of the science of happiness! The feedback and support we’ve received for this new and experimental offering is truly touching and we are really looking forward to bringing the experience to new audiences next year!
A photograph is the pause button of life
The recent Mindful Photography workshop was an absolute hit due to Menka’s amazing facilitation style! Her Just Looking Instagram community is all about connecting and inspiring each other to use photography to slow down, notice more and connect playfully with the present moment. Check out some of the great snaps from the day below!
Happiness is homemade
We’ve been doing lots of training and community work with residents here at Arlington House, including confidence workshops and creative writing courses! A big shout out to James the poet for all of the help he’s given us with the work of keeping the Museum running!
We’re really looking forward to Arlington Christmas Fayre! We will be handing out presents to the Residents of Arlington. These gifts were very kindly donated by our friends at Sunday School Yoga who recently hosted their Christmas Party at the Museum of Happiness
Last but certainly not least!
Our first Awakin Circle at the Museum of Happiness was a beautiful gathering. We feel blessed for time to meditate with the community, share insights and have diner together. We’ll be hosting more next year so please do come down and get involved if you’d like to :-)
Finally, a big, big shout out to Heather Mason who is working tirelessly to make an impact in using yoga as a preventative health measure and is working hard to raise awareness in Parliament about the benefits of yoga.
We wish you a wonderful and happy festive season and hope to see you in the New Year!
Sending love and smiles :)
