Mindfulness

Weekly, Tuesdays from 10am - 12 noon in TW10 **Starts 8th October** for six weeks

Leader: Sue Roberts

This six-week course is suitable for those who may already know something about mindfulness as well as for complete beginners. It introduces ‘What is Mindfulness?’ in a secular way and people who attend will be offered the opportunity to explore how to practise mindfulness and compassion in everyday life. You can expect exploration and practice of the following:

• What is Mindfulness? The nature of the mind
• How to settle the mind
• Using breath and/or sound as a meditation support
• The body scan
• Staying present in the here and now
• Applying mindfulness in everyday life to support stress reduction

If you would like to attend, you will need to commit to all six sessions as the course is designed to help people develop their mindfulness practice gradually over this time period. The mindfulness practice involves sitting in silence for periods of 10-15 minutes during the initial few sessions, through to approximately 40 minutes during the latter sessions. You will be encouraged to practise these sitting sessions daily throughout the six-week period.

Timing: 10 am – 12 pm. We will have a refreshment break half way through the morning. There will be a 50p contribution towards beverages and occasional printing.

Sue would like to welcome up to 6 people who are interested to join her at Upper Richmond Road West, TW10 5DU
The following buses stop at Sheen Court: 33, 337 and 493.

As there are only 2 places still available, they will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please contact Sue by clicking on her name above
