Mindfulness meditation is about being awake and present in the moment. We often spend much of our time planning and worrying about the future or ruminating about the past. When we live our lives in this way, we miss what is happening right here and now. We also have a tendency to judge ourselves and our experience, which undermines our self-worth and confidence.
Mindfulness and heartfulness are essentially entwined. In Asian languages the word for heart and mind are the same. Life can only truly be experienced in the present moment, so it makes sense to live in the present as often as we can!
This workshop is aimed at beginners, however all are welcome. The class will begin with a brief introduction to mindfulness and sound healing. The majority of the workshop is experiential, where you will be led in a number of meditations followed by a sound healing journey.
A growing body of evidence reveals how mindfulness reduces stress, anxiety, chronic pain and depression. Regular meditators are happier and less likely to suffer from psychological and physical distress. This taster session is a great starting point or reignition!
