What we're about
Welcome to Newham's Mindfulness Meditation Meetup Group where we will practice secular mindfulness meditation with the intention and motivations around improving the health and wellbeing of ourselves and others.
A key focus of this group will be the cultivation of mindfulness and compassion for the benefit of ourselves and others we connect with. The group will provide the opportunity to learn and practice mindfulness in a safe environment.
We will run drop in sessions on a Saturday morning 10.30am -12.30.
Each drop in session will start with a welcome and mindful movement exercise. We will then do a guided sitting practice. This will be followed by open enquiry and sharing to facilitate development, learning and understanding. At the end of the session, there is a short dedication.
Venue: The Red House, 13 Upton Avenue, Forest Gate, Newham, London E7 9PN.
The sessions are suitable for complete beginners and the experienced.
Please feel free to bring your blanket for warmth and or a favourite cushion or bench for sitting if you have an established practice. A limited number of mats and cushions will be provided.
To keep this group going there is a suggested minimum donation of £3 per session but this is optional
8 Week Mindfulness Based Living Courses - We will from time to time run the 8 week mindfulness based living course. Please note that during the courses no drop in sessions will be available.
