Meditation is a journey of bringing the mind into the heart. ‘Vipassana’ means seeing clearly. ‘Metta’ (loving kindness, heartfulness) practice cultivates our capacity for kindness and non-contentiousness. The combination of mindfulness and loving kindness is a powerful way to develop clarity, contentment and compassion, in the quiet environment of retreat as well as in the midst of the chaos of our every-day lives, and helps us to tap into our inner sources of kindness and wakefulness.
This 3-week course is an introduction to meditation and mindfulness. Over the 3 weeks you will learn various techniques and begin to experience how the practice of meditation can benefit both physical health and mental health. You will also experience how it becomes easier to practice when you are part of a group.
This 6-week course, with Adie Clarke, is a self-care and wellbeing programme rooted in Mindfulness based psychology and Mindful meditation practice. It is an invitation to slow down and to explore the richness of experience of thoughts, feelings and body sensations in everyday life.
