Honouring Kate Greene: MUM’S LIST Goes From Book To Film To International WELLNESS WORKSHOP
First time a wellness workshop launches in conjunction with a feature film to help people embrace the profound and existential
The best-selling book and film Mum’s List has inspired the launch of a unique wellness program – the Mum’s List Legacy (MLL) workshop – which helps people navigate the unpredictability of life with resiliency, courage and wisdom. Mum’s List(which opened in UK theatres on November 25) tells the true story of Kate Greene’s journey with cancer and the list she left her husband and two young boys for how to live once she had gone. The Mum’s List Legacy workshop carries out Kate’s wish for humanity – that we live with greater purpose, gratitude and joy.
“Ultimately, we must not deny that death and loss are things we will have to face with the same source of wisdom and mindfulness that we approach other aspects of suffering in our lives. Grief comes to inform us and enlighten us. It is painful, but provides the perspective and appreciation for joy,” says Derek O’Neill, the creator of the MLL workshop and executive producer of the film Mum’s List.
Workshop facilitators have been trained and certified to offer workshops around the world for individuals, businesses and organizations. Using proven mindfulness techniques, meditations, and self-reflective exercises, the program teaches people to look within for insight about their life experiences and challenges, and provides guidance for creating positive change. Topics of focus include stress reduction, releasing fear and anxiety, enhancing the body’s resiliency, and cultivating inner-peace and personal empowerment.
Singe Greene, husband to Kate Greene and author of Mum’s List the book, says, “The book and workshop are already having a positive impact on people’s lives! Making “that list” and experiencing the workshop first-hand has provided new insights into my own life, giving me direction and deepening my commitment to living a life with purpose, happiness and service to others. I highly recommend it.”
In honour of Kate and Singe Greene’s family, a portion of all workshop proceeds will go to supporting their two children and charities around the world.
