This month we had a really fun time together at the 7th Big Beach Busk, hosted a group of cyclists who cycled up from Manchester and had a brilliant adventure stopping at bee farms, growing projects and micro breweries, which was a great event during #ScotClimateWeek. We held a parent's evening with Edinburgh Birth and Baby, welcomed a new Yoga teacher, Clare Freeman of Yogaforth on Tuesdays 1230-130 and 9 new coworkers!
Regular classes are now back in full swing, check out our online calendar for more information and there is still time to book into our Mindful Life Design course, more details below.

After last year's success, we are having another Christmas Market for Makers. The number of talented folk selling was brilliant and so was the turnout. Save the date and keep your shopping for the 10th December 12-4pm at Tribe Porty.

Patty Smith on the Creative Impulse and the Childhood Epiphany in Which She Knew She was an Artist
Maria Popova beautiful explains this book, "How does one become an artist — not in a practical sense, not by some external measure, but by an invisible and intimate surrender to the creative impulse? For Patti Smith, one of the most radiant creative spirits of our time, it was a similarly precise and transcendent childhood experience. In Just Kids, she recounts what she considers to be her first memory of the creative impulse." More here.
"I’m a white belt when it comes to saying no. It still kind of feels like a foreign language; I overthink my word choice and stumble around incoherently. I worry that it’s coming out all wrong — arrogant or ungrateful or uptight."
