Mindfulness is the ability to notice where we are, physically and mentally, and bring our attention back to what is rather than being in our fantasies, fears, hopes and dreams.
We invite you to join us for a series of mindfulness evenings.
We would like to meet every month (Weds at 6pm) for a 2-hour practice period followed or preceded by a short introduction and/or talk. Both beginners and people who are already practising are welcome to join us. It will be an opportunity not only to explore theory but also to go deeper into our own personal practice.
Some of the practices include:
- sitting (including mindfulness of breathing and open awarenes) and walking meditation
- mindful yoga
- body scan
- loving-kindness meditation
- various visualisations
Each meeting might have a different theme and we might practise different things.
Bring a pillow/cushion and yoga mat to sit on and come a little early so you can settle in. You can also sit on a chair.
Evenings facilitated by: Wendy Wood & Julia E. Wahl
