This evening MHWI members were able to relax and laugh with speaker Helen Rowe.  Helen explained what laughter yoga was and how it was derived, before giving everyone a chance to have a go.

She then moved on to explaining why mindfulness is currently so popular in our busy, daily lives, what it is and the opportunity to try a couple of exercises to experience a few moments of peace and tranquillity.

Important for next Wednesday – resolutions shortlist 2017

Resolutions: Make your voice count

Every resolution passed throughout the WI’s 101-year history has stemmed from a concern put forward by members. This uniquely democratic model offers the opportunity for you to combine your voice with 220,000 others to make a real difference on important issues. This year, 85 resolutions were submitted. These were narrowed down to six by representatives from federations at a shortlisting meeting in London on 29 September.

The next step is for you to consider all six and select the one you would most like to go forward for further discussion and final voting at the Annual Meeting in June 2017. The selection process is open to all WI members and you can make your selection by filling out the selection form found in the November& December issue of WI Life.”

We will be discussing the resolutions at our meeting on Wednesday, 25th January and collecting voting forms.
