MINDFULNESS TOE DIPPERS

ATTEND OUR DROP IN GROUPS

DROP-IN FRIDAYS

This is a regular mindfulness drop-in session for newcomers as well as for those who have been meditating for some time. Regardless of what your knowledge or experience is of mindfulness, you can drop in to meet others who practice mindfulness and meditation. These Friday evening meetings are a great way to reset your mind from working-week mode to a slower weekend gear.

Free mindfulness drop in

Each session starts with an introduction to the theme for the session. We then watch or listen to a 30 minute recording from an internationally recognised mindfulness teacher, have a discussion on the key learning, and then have a guided meditation practice (20 to 30 minutes). You do not need to know anything about mindfulness or meditation. All you need is a willingness to find out more, give it a go and an openness to listen to other people’s experiences of the practice. 

Research shows that regular meditation improves physical and emotional health and wellbeing. The man most credited with bringing secular mindfulness to the west, Jon Kabat-Zinn, defines mindfulness as: “paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally, to the unfolding of experience moment to moment”.

In this video, you can hear Professor Kabat-Zinn describing what mindfulness is. Why not give yourself the opportunity to experience some of these basic mindful skills?
