These sessions are designed to provide some basic understanding about the Mindfulness method of meditation and to practice the meditation in order to experience its benefits.
What is Mindfulness Meditation?
Mindfulness meditation is about developing the skill for being more present. It is about learning how to change the habits of inattention and distraction and learning how to stay in the present moment. If you need to reduce stress, anxiety, worry less, lower your blood pressure or feel more in control of your moods and reactions, then mindfulness meditation may be the thing for you!
The Mindfulness Meditations sessions are free and will be held here at the Counselling Service, Level 2 Peribolos East and we have a maximum of 15 places.
