This intensive course is designed to equip you with a toolbox of options. With the support of a solid ongoing practice, you can enjoy an inner calmness and steadiness that allows you to respond rather than react to what life brings.

What will it be like?

Congratulations on your motivation to explore mindfulness meditation, perhaps for the first time. If you’d like to see what I’m on about, here is a little YouTube sample I’ve made for you to try:

What to expect:

You do NOT need to sit cross-legged on the floor!  You can sit in a chair, lie down or find any position that is comfortable for you.  So wear comfortable clothes you can sit or lie down in, and bring any cushions or pillows you prefer.

Although I will refer to meditation practices from various world traditions, this course is not aligned with any particular religion or doctrine. 

During the hour:

This is a cumulative course, designed to equip you to develop an ongoing daily practice. In the hour session each week, we will firstly connect and see where everyone’s at. ———- We will spend a short time learning about the mind, the physiological changes during meditation and what may have prevented you from meditating in the past. We may also touch on Levels of Consciousness at times, as a useful key to understanding our experience. ———- You are welcome to simply listen, or share to whatever degree you’re comfortable. ———- But most of the session will be taken up with our primary focus: doing one or two different mindfulness meditation techniques, building up a toolbox of options you can use at home. ———– There are plenty of meditation and mindfulness apps online, but the experience of physically sitting in a group energy is much richer. The energetic support of the rest of the group and the depth of my own personal practice has my participants able to sink into a calm, still place easily within the first few weeks.

What IS Mindfulness Meditation?

I am often asked the question, “What’s the difference between meditation and mindfulness?” Meditation carries so many different meanings in different contexts. The various techniques are designed to have a calming effect, promote relaxation, build internal energy and even develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness.  

Mindfulness is more specific. While it does stimulate the relaxation response, its focus is on becoming the witness to the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment. The effect on everyday activities, especially perceived stressful situations, can be profound.

Documented evidence from scientific studies cite the benefits as a lowering of blood pressure, improved immune function, a slowing down of the ageing process, improved skin tone, reduction in muscle tension, better concentration and study, and a decrease in inflammatory stress reaction.   We know from personal experience that mindfulness meditation also takes the edge off stressful situations, balances emotions, develops intuition, and can lead to greater personal growth as events may begin to happen to help you see your blocks and resistances.
