The day will be an introduction to meditation with theory and practical exercises to help you initiate a meditation practise. It is suitable for those new to meditation or for those who have some experience but would like to give a boost to their practise. We will cover some of the following during the day:
- Why meditate?
- Some steps for setting up a regular practise.
- The benefits of meditation.
- A guided walking meditation outside in some of the wonderful space we have around us.
- Mindful breathing and movement practises.
- As well as simple mantra chanting to prepare us for meditation.
- And a delicious vegan lunch and time with like minded friends.
Meditation turns the mind inwards to find that stillness that lies beyond the thoughts. Meditation is the practice by which there is constant observation of the mind. It can give profound benefits in terms of physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual well being. It brings increased awareness, attention and clarity of mind, helps us recover and manage stress better and generally improves our overall well being and energy levels.
There is nothing more valuable than a peaceful mind. So many times our mind rushes about looking for happiness. Our Meditation Day Retreat will bring inner stillness and inner contentment and exactly that, a peaceful mind.
