Slow Down. Take the mindful path back home.
In an increasingly busy and frantic world it is important to make time to come home to our own hearts. When we begin to slow down and pay attention it becomes easier to be still in the present moment.
In this series of classes participants will be introduced to the principles of mindfulness practice. We will learn how to follow the breath and allow it to anchor us in each moment. There will be opportunities to practise sitting and walking meditation and other gentle movement exercises. Guided meditation will be accompanied by instrumental music and sacred poetry. We will cultivate a sense of spacious awareness in an atmosphere of non judging and compassion.
The aim of this Tuesday evening course is to nurture compassion and loving kindness towards oneself, others and the natural world. The focus is on mindfulness as presence of heart and coming home to ourselves. It is suitable both for beginners and those already on the path. There is great support in meeting from week to week with the same group and learning to develop a practice that can be sustained when the classes are finished.
