This half day of mindfulness will be largely experiential and will involve a number of meditations including sitting, body scan and movement.
This course is suitable for beginners to mindfulness. If you are curious about mindfulness and would like to know more, these half days serve as an excellent introduction.
These days also provide an opportunity for experienced meditators and those who have completed courses to practice together with a group in a supportive environment.
Everyone is welcome.
