Grow Your Mindfulness Practice: A One-Day Workshop

Grow Your Mindfulness Practice: A One-Day Workshop

More Views

When we finish an eight week mindfulness course it can be difficult to keep our practice alive. We may find that without the support of an ongoing group and expert guidance we stop growing and developing our practice.

Just like tending a garden, mindfulness needs care and attention so that it can flourish. On this interactive day of practice and learning, through meditation, reflection and discussion, we will explore how you can nurture your practice beyond an eight week mindfulness course. 

During the day we will examine the underlying principles of mindfulness practice exploring key areas of intention (why we are practicing) and attitude (how we are practicing). There will also be time spent exploring the practical aspects of mindfulness and how we can work with difficulty during practice, including how to practice when we are tired, when the mind is busy and when we are experiencing difficult emotions.

The day will include extended periods of guided mindfulness practice, as well as group inquiry and discussion.
