Our lives are becoming more and more demanding yet our ability to manage those demands isn’t improving. We are constantly busy but no matter how good we get at multitasking we still feel like something is missing.
Our minds are designed to problem solve, so we go around and around in our heads, trying to make sense of life, not because we are doing anything wrong, but because life can at times be difficult. This can be mentally and physically exhausting, and in the long term could result in sleep and anxiety disorders, burn out and mental health issues.
So what if there was another way? This workshop with Senior International Mindfulness Trainer, Supervisor and Teacher Kathy Ward will introduce you to mindful awareness and the amazing fact that the challenges and difficulties that get our brains working in overtime with the “What If’s’ are workable, there is something we can do to counterbalance the pressure of modern life!
During the workshop, we will explore easy to learn mindfulness practices including a Body Scan and Mindful Movement, skills that will help you redirect attention, let go of the pressures of modern life, find peace and balance.
So who can benefit from the workshop? Anyone! No previous meditation experience is needed and you do not necessarily need to have difficulty or challenge right now as learning these skills also builds resilience for the ups and downs of life in the 21st century. So we invite you to just come along with some curiosity and see where it takes you.
As Pico Iyer says in his book The Art of Stillness, A TED Original, “In an age of speed, I began to think; nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing could feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.
Join us and find out how!
THE WORKSHOP WILL BE IN ENGLISH.
