7.30 - 9pm

with Sangita

Learning to become more mindful in life brings us into the present moment and is a potent antidote to our tendency to want to 'catastrophize' future scenarios.  Becoming attuned to the stillness within, we become more aligned with our essential nature.  Life begins to flow more easily.

This 8 week course of Mindfulness Based Still Meditation (MBSM) will give you a great foundation for your meditation practice, and will cover:

  • the impact of stress on the body and mind

  • the importance of relaxation 

  • how to manage the mind

  • emotional health

Warning:  meditation may cause happiness!

2 Deepen Mindfulness | use imagery to harness the power of mind

Mental rehearsal & the use of imagery and affirmations have become mainstream.  Have you ever noticed elite athletes meditating before a big race?  In fact, in any performance related field you can think of - academic, sporting, musical, corporate - the use of imagery can be used to enhance results.  Imagery can also be applied to the cultivation of inner peace, and to accelerate healing and help manage pain.  

This 8 week Imagery-Based Mindfulness course  will deepen your meditation practice, and give you specific skills and guided meditations to create the future you would like to step into.    The course will cover:

  • goal setting, affirmations & visualisations

  • cultivation of inner peace

  • a look at the mechanics of mind-body medicine

  • brain science & neuroplasticity

  • choosing the 'right' imagery

  • the subject of healing & pain
