Mindfulness Practice

“Mindfulness is paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally“ (John Kabat-Zinn). It is about learning to be fully present in our lives rather than being on ‘autopilot’ for most of it. Developing an effective personal Mindfulness practice has been proven to help people in many different ways including pain management, stress management and weight control. Although Mindfulness has its origins in Buddhist traditions, it is entirely secular and is practiced by members of many different faith groups as well as by people who have no formal religious beliefs.

Sharing our Mindfulness practice with others has been shown to enhance our experiences and help us sustain a regular personal practice. As a group we will explore different aspects of Mindfulness, share our experiences and learn from and encourage each other. Experienced practitioners in the group will be encouraged to lead sessions if they would like to.

This group will start with a 6 week introductory programme for those who are new to Mindfulness. Experienced practitioners are welcome to come along and help with the introductory sessions or may choose to join the group at week 7. The group will meet weekly, probably on Monday mornings.

Anyone joining this group will be expected to develop a regular personal practice in addition to attending group sessions.

Please note that a small charge may need to be made to cover the cost of hiring a suitable venue.
