Four Week Mindfulness Course
Meditation and Mindfulness are often scary words for some people, and come with a lot of preconceived ideas of how they should be done, and what the aim of meditation/mindfulness actually is.
In this course we will be exploring mindfulness and concentration practises as some useful tools to help us build into a meditation practise. We will look at a few of the fundamental principles from buddhist meditation philosophy, however you don't need to be a buddhist, or indeed, align with any religious or spiritual group to practise mindfulness or meditation!
Abbie has completed her 50 hours CPD in Meditation Teacher Training with 'Yoga Like Water' in 2022, and continues to add to her practise with ongoing CPD work.
A great question... and one we will ponder on more in the class. In a nutshell, meditation can help us live more fully in the present moment, and as a beneficial side effect we may (or may not) notice that we become more self-aware, and have a few more moments of calm throughout our days.
I want to join, but...
There are many factors which can hold people back from going along to a meditation class. One of the most commonly heard statements is 'I have too many thoughts to be able to clear my mind'. The good news is, we're not aiming to clear our minds in this class! It is the practise of noticing when we've attached to our thoughts and coming back to our concentration technique, that we will be cultivating.
What do I need to bring?
Props at the hall are limited so you will need to bring with you a yoga mat (or similar) to sit on, and then any other props to make you comfortable, a pillow, bolster or blanket might be a good idea!
Where and When is it?
We will be starting a new four week Mindfulness Course block soon - watch this space for start dates and details!
