Mindfulness is about love and loving life. When you cultivate this love, it gives you clarity and compassion for life, and your actions happen in accordance with that. – Jon Kabat-Zinn
Saturday 2nd August 11:00-17:00
Holy Trinity Church, 234 The Broadway, Wimbledon
This will be a practical day exploring mindfulness and mindfulness meditation, suitable for beginners and anyone wishing to learn more about this area. The practice will include focused meditation and whole body awareness. We will gain insights into becoming more aware of what we hear, see and feel – all things that can help us to be more grounded in the present moment. We will practice some mindful eating and will try mindful walking which will be outside in the church grounds if weather permits. There will be opportunities to discuss what you are experiencing, as well as a chance to share and feedback to one another throughout the day.
Please bring a yoga mat, cushion and/or blanket to enhance your comfort on the day.
Tea and coffee-making facilities are available on site. You can either bring your own lunch or eat at one of the local restaurants or cafes.
There are only 10 spaces available, so book early to avoid disappointment.
NOTE: despite being held at Holy Trinity Church, the practice is non-religious, although some of the concepts of mindfulness are borrowed from Buddhist principles.
