Event description

Description

Mindfulness is a practice of meditative awareness of the present moment - awareness of our body, thoughts and feelings. With regular practice mindfulness can help us to manage stress skilfully and avoid burnout. We can begin to recognise the positive choices we can make in the present, and bring more kindness into our lives.

This day of mindfulness is suitable for people who are new to mindfulness practice as well as those who have some previous experience or have finished a course. Over the course of the retreat, you will have the opportunity to explore mindfulness practices such as sitting and walking meditation, eating meditation, body scan and guided movement, within a supportive group. A short period of the day will be spent outdoors, (if the weather is suitable) so please wear your walking shoes, wrap up, and bring a raincoat! There will be periods of silent practice throughout the day and this will include the lunch period. A vegetarian lunch will be provided and there will be tea and scones on arrival. Throughout the day, there will be time for discussion following each practice as well as personal reflection, and support around setting up a regular home practice.

Wear loose comfortable clothes and bring a blanket and pillow. Please avoid using scented products. Leave yourself plenty of time to arrive by 10am and plan to stay until the end of the day.

The fee of 75 euro includes a 3 course vegetarian lunch and a mindfulness CD. Pre-registration is required. Call 086 8185974 for information or email carmel@mindfulnessgalway.ie
