4-week mindfulness experience class – via zoom

A personal and friendly mindfulness practice class. Suitable for new and experienced practitioners.

You will learn:

  • how to practice mindfulness,
  • how to sit in meditation,
  • tips to practice in daily life,
  • how to do walking meditation,
  • mindful movement,
  • gratitude practice,
  • loving kindness practice,
  • mindfulness singing,
  • inspirational stories

Most importantly you’ll receive just over an hour of peace and tranquility in a virtual group of other local, like-minded people. You will be surprised how lovely and easy it is to connect and build a community online in this way, and for this reason numbers are limited.

In previous times this class would happen in the Namaste Centre on the Ormeau Road, where I’ve been teaching it for over 10 years, now it’s online via zoom.

Especially at this exceptional time for the whole world we will focus on practices to calm our nervous system and work with fear and anxiety. Also sending compassion to those struggling – including ourselves.

Suitable for all: from beginners to experienced practitioners with a beginners mind.

Come join us for an experience of peace in the midst of your week.

You can buy the course as a gift for someone – just ask them to give your name on the first night.

I have lots of free material that you can access via my social media pages.

YES you can save the Eventbrite fee – you can pay via PayPal and bank transfer – just email me on mindfulmind@outlook.com for details. Once payment has been received I will send you the joining instructions.

Thank you.

Virtual Deepening Your Practice Retreat

It’s been quite the year and it not over yet… As you are already a practioner you KNOW that practice supports our resilience and helps us stay well in body and mind.  This weekend is an opportunity to do just that, to go deeper into  a practice as community online – connected but socially distant.  In 2020 is the only way we can retreat.

It will be beneficial if you can set your space up in such a way as to facilitate silence and peace in your own home in order get the full benefit.

We will devote time to mindfulness and self-compassion practice, deep- relaxation, mindful movement, mindful walking, guided meditation and discussion.

In my experience with zoom meditation since March 2020 I believe we can still benefit ALOT from a retreat like this. Despite not being physically present we support each other spiritually and emotionally.  It will be a special weekend to be remembered.

It is advised that you should have previous mindfulness experience before booking this weekend, there will be lots of silence.

Yes you can pay by bank transfer, PayPal, cheque or cash to avoid the Eventbrite fee, however payment must be in advance of the retreat and is not refundable from 1 November 2020.

21-22 November

Dates: Saturday 21 - Sunday 22 November
Times: 9.30am - 4.30pm

Christmas peace mindful self-compassion workshop

The theme this month is Christmas peace.

Mindful self-compassion is the foundation of emotional healing—being aware in the present moment when we’re struggling with feelings of inadequacy, despair, confusion, and other forms of stress (mindfulness) and responding with kindness and understanding (self-compassion). Mindful self-compassion also means holding difficult emotions—fear, anger, sadness, shame and self-doubt—and ourselves, in loving awareness, leading to greater ease and well-being in our daily lives.

Mindful self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It’s the practice of repeatedly evoking good will toward ourselves especially when we’re suffering—cultivating the same desire that all living beings have to live happily and free from suffering. And as the Dalai Lama says, self-compassion is the first step toward compassion for others.

The workshop is suitable for everyone from complete beginners to experienced practitioners. It fun, practical and experiential. I’ve been running this workshop for five years and people regularly re-attend. 🙂

Sometimes it will be possible to transfer your ticket – subject to availability. Workshops in Winter months tend to sell out so transfer is limited, summer workshops usually have more availability.

It is possible to buy a ticket as a gift, the person just needs to give the name the ticket was booked under when they check in with me on the day.

Please bring your own yoga mat if you have one and a blanket to stay cosy during deep relaxation.

Thank you, I look forward to seeing you.

Charity Christmas mindfulness class in aid of Mindwise

A yearly tradition – my last evening mindfulness class of the year before Christmas is for charity. Normally held in Namaste Yoga Centre on the Ormeau Road after a Chinese in Macau now for 2020 it’s via zoom

This year the Charity is ‘Mindwise‘. Our vision is a world where people affected by mental health issues receive the support they need to lead a fulfilling life through recovery and discovery.

Mindwise provide mental health training to employers to create mentally healthy workplaces across Northern Ireland. They also provide quality services, including housing, community support and day services, criminal justice services, working with young people leaving custody, early intervention support for families and children, as well as support for carers and families.

This past year I have been providing some mindfulness classes for Mindwise service users too.

Last year in the Charity Meditation class we raised£290 for Headway, £236 for Action Cancer in 2018, in 2017 £294 for Hospice UK and in 2016 we raised £240 for Syria Relief.

It’s going to be very different this year but I hope we can still make a decent amount for this online class!

The class is a ‘Christmas special’ with some mindful chocolate eating!  You will need to provide you own chocolate or fruit for the meditation. Also a candle 🙂

Christmas jumpers are welcomed to add to the spirit 🙂 Though of course we’ll really only see you head n shoulders on zoom – but why not! It’s Christmas x x x

Everyone is welcome, please mark it in your diary.

Suggested donation is £10. Thank you.

Even though the class is for charity – eventbrite still take a fee – its how the system works, i’m sorry about this. If you donate to Mindwise directly you can send me the receipt and I will send you the class code. Thank you.
