Melbourne (Mount Martha) – An Introduction to Mindfulness & Meditation 4 Week Course – Starts Thursday, 17 August, 7.00pm Sessions
Event on 2017-08-17 19:00:00
“Neuroscientists have found that meditators shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex…This mental shift decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety. …The researchers found that the meditators showed a pronounced shift in activity to the left frontal lobe. In other words, they were calmer and happier than before.” – Psychology Today Benefits of mindfulness & meditation: Reduce stress and anxiety More focus and energy Greater sense of ease and perspective Sleep better Relax more Greater self-awareness and wisdom Deeper levels of self-acceptance Richer and deeper experience of day-to-day life Studies and articles on the benefits of mindfulness meditation What is mindfulness? Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.” – Jon Kabat Zinn (Professor of Medicine Emeritus Stress Reduction Clinic and the Centre for Mindfulness in Medicine). Mindfulness and meditation are both gaining in popularity as more and more people discover how this simple skill can have a profoundly positive impact on your life. Organisations such as Google, Apple, Nike and Yahoo! now run mindfulness programmes and sessions for staff during work hours. Modern research about mindfulness and meditation shows measurable and significant benefits to people including less stress, less anxiety, greater focus, calm and happiness. This particular course emphasises your own natural wisdom, your own innate OKness, right here and now. The instructions and guidance will be explicitly inviting you to embrace your whole human experience as it happens, moment by moment with a radical acceptance. "Since doing this course, I have been sleeping much better, I feel much more in control of my emotions, I have enjoyed 'noticing' my own state, but also it has transferred to everything around. This means I am re-enjoying many things that I had been taking for granted." — Sandy Good About The Course: Practical with no dogma or religion Bookings are essential.
