An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until 8 March 2018
Enjoy being guided through meditations each week to cultivate greater presence, awareness, ease and compassion, whilst developing helpful tools, habits and confidence to integrate mindfulness into your daily life.
Meditation helps cultivate a clearer, more focused and relaxed mind – an imperative skill in our increasingly demanding and distracting lives. Through mindfulness meditation, learn to purposely pay attention to the present moment; respond to life’s experiences more thoughtfully; improve your physical, mental and emotional health, and meet yourself and others with greater kindness and compassion.
Build your mindfulness muscle week by week with the support of a Thursday evening practice as you are guided through several approaches to mindfulness mediation AND enjoy support while developing your own personal practice, with BONUS take home resources: recorded mindfulness meditations and activities to support you integrate Mindfulness into your everyday life.
