Getting Started – A Practical Introduction to Mindfulness. – delivered online via zoom
A 10-week rolling program introducing mindfulness. There are 10 sessions with distinct content and it’s fine to join at any point. Getting Started operates on a drop-in basis, so if you miss a session you can cover the content next time it comes around.
The sessions are interactive to support learning from each other's experiences. We, therefore, request that participants turn their cameras and microphone on for the sessions. Participants will be muted during meditations to reduce distractions.
Getting Started is just that- an accessible introduction to mindfulness, providing a practical guide to building it into everyday life.
Each session will cover a different aspect of Mindfulness and will include:
Each week focuses on a different foundation of building a mindfulness practice starting with Intention and then the nine foundational attitudes of mindfulness: Beginners Mind; Non-Judgement; Gratitude; Acceptance; Non-Striving; Letting Go; Generosity; Patience and Trust.
The science which backs it up and how it applies to our lives.
Guided mindfulness practices
These form the backbone of each session because practice promotes presence
Suggestions and tips for practicing in the context of our daily life
The opportunity to ask questions
