This is a regular drop-in session for newcomers as well as for those who have been meditating for some time. Regardless of what your knowledge or experience is of mindfulness, you can drop in to meet others who practice mindfulness and meditation. These Friday evening meetings are a great way to reset your mind from working-week mode to a slower gear.
These sessions are held the first Friday of every month from 6:15pm until 8pm. There are a maximum of 12 places so early booking is advised.
Each session, we will introduce the theme for the session, watch a 30 minute video from an internationally respected mindfulness teacher, have a discussion on the key learning, and then have a live guided meditation practice (20 to 30 minutes).
You do not need to know anything about mindfulness or meditation. All you need is a willingness to give it a go and an openness to listen to other people's experiences of the practice.
Here are the upcoming themes:
4th November: Different types of mindfulness practice e.g. meditation & 'everyday' mindfulness.
2nd December: The mindfulness take on how to discover who you are.
13th January: The links between mindfulness and psychotherapy.
3rd February: How mindfulness develops empathy towards others.
3rd March: The science of Compassion and Self-Compassion.
7th April: Tailoring your mindfulness practice for your changing life.
5th May: How mindfulness changes our brain stucture and functioning.
