Event description

Description

Mindfulness meditation is a life-skill and a practice that invites you to arrive fully into each moment of your life. It is a habit that can bring huge amounts of peace, acceptance, joy, intimacy and connection.

The 8-week course teaches mindfulness through a variety of sitting meditations, movement exercises and group reflections. Each week we focus on a different topic:

1. Awareness of automatic pilot - how we often live without really being awake, alive and inside the present moment, but thinking, anticipating, worrying, daydreaming about past or future events.

2. Awareness of our individual perception and how our thoughts are highly personal and not always true (and yet our body responds as if they are)

3. The joy of mindful movement

4. Awareness of stress and triggers

5. Awareness of how we cope with stress and triggers

6. Awareness of communication and relationships

7. Awareness of what we take into our bodies - food, communication, media, situations.

8. Closing session to review the learning

Participants are encouraged to practice at home and are given guided meditations for home practice as well as a coursepack for further reading.

The couse runs from 6.30pm-8.30pm on consecutive Thursday evenings from Thursday 12 Sep - Thursday 7 Nov, missing out Thursday 31 October (half term).

Participants of the 8-week course are also invited to attend the Silent Retreat Day on Sunday 13 October at no extra cost. This takes place from 10am-2pm and is a truly soul nourishing day of movement and meditation.

After the course you will:

- Have a life skill and a practice to help quiet the frantic mind, a place that you can create within yourself that invites deep healing.

- Have more awareness of the habits and patterns at play in your life

- Have developed self compassion, with a kinder relationship to your emotions, thoughts and behavioiurs

- Have greater resilience to deal with stressful situations

- Have tools and insight into ways to improve communication with your loved ones

- Experience more mental clarity and a sense of spaciousness

- Feel like there is more time in the day, by reducing your stress levels and sense of pressure

Testimonials:

'The course has helped in many ways, to react more calmly. To react less negatively and try to look at situations from a different perspective. I enjoyed the discussions of the concepts so much that I am now reading Full Catastrophe Living. Mindfulness is helping me accept my life more, not the waste time lamenting the past circumstances that have lead me here. It has helped me to slow down and appreciate life, thank you.'

'Sam has been an amazing teacher. I always feel so peaceful afer the sessions. She is approachable and knowledgable and conveys herself so clearly at a level that is easy to understand, putting everyone at ease. the course has helped me to come to my breath and use meditation to calm me down. I am much more aware of my body sensations and how I am feeling, which has really helped me to gain control of myself and situations as they are, knowing they will pass. I have found Sam inspiring both as a facilitator and as a person.'
