Saturday Morning Newham Mindfulness Meet Up Group.
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 interconnection and unity in the community. The group will provide the opportunity to learn and practice mindfulness in a safe environment. Each 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 compassion break and dedication. Each session will start at 10.30am to 12 noon every Saturday morning @ The Red House, 13 Upton Avenue, Forest Gate, Newham, London E7 9PN. The sessions are suitable for complete beginners and the experienced. One Saturday a month will be dedicated to a family sitting practice and yoga games in support of the nuclear family. 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. Please visit www.urbanmindfulnessfoundation.co.uk (http://www.urbanmindfulnessfoundation.co.uk/) for further information on our group.

What we're about

Public Group

The Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC) is one of only six courses listed on the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teachers Website. It was designed by the Mindfulness Association who are one of the affiliate organisations of the UK network and is based on their One Year Mindfulness Training programme.

The Mindfulness Based Living Course is designed to provide a strong foundation and understanding of Mindfulness Practice that helps to enhance a persons everyday living experience and promote a sense of well being regardless of their situation.

Whilst the course is just as effective at reducing stress, depression, risk of relapse and psychological issues as the others courses such as MBSR, MBCT, MBPC and MBRP. The Mindfulness Based Living Course has been specifically designed to help anyone regardless of their psychological, physical or emotional situation and indeed is suitable for both those who are not suffering from any significant issues as well as those who may be experiencing difficulty.

As such, we consider the Mindfulness Based Living Course to be one of the only available mindfulness courses that is not attached to any form of stigma or illness and is therefore considered most open and accessible to everyone both inside or outside of a medical or treatment based setting.

It is an eight week course consisting of eight classes, which are typically two or two and half hours long, preceded by an introductory class before the eight week course begins and concluded by a follow up class after the eight week course ends. A day of Mindfulness practice is also typically included between weeks 6 and 7.

The weekly themes included:

Introductory Session – What is Mindfulness and Why Practice It?

Week 1 – Start Where We Are

Week 2 – The Body as a Place to Stay Present
