'Introduction to mindfulness and meditation'
Village Hall, St Mary's Lane, Pilton BA4 4BB
November 9.30 am–12.30 pm
£15 (includes tea/coffee and cake)
This workshop will explore the journey
towards meditation through mindfulness, developing the skills to look at the
mind and let go of unnecessary mental activity. We will practice settling the body into a comfortable sitting position, grounding and resting the mind and a variety of short practices. These techniques improve our capacity to focus so that we can see clearly what changes need to be made. Once we learn to calm the mind,
we find ourselves in the present and able to bring this calmness more and more into our daily lives. We can set our mind to achieving positive goals. You will come away with a selection of short practices that you can use in everyday life, and it is my aim to
provide a structured guide to developing a meditation practice, should you wish
This workshop will include the guided practice of minfulness and meditation techniques, background information and discussion. The practices are predominantly sitting, broken up with some gentle movement, a walking practice and a tea and cake break. Please bring your Yoga mat, blanket and any blocks, meditation stools and cushions that you have if you wish to use them. Alternatively chairs will be available.

You do not need to be a Buddhist or a regular Yoga practitioner to practise mindfulness or Buddhist meditation. No previous Yoga or meditation experience is necessary to attend this workshop.
