  • Free Mindfulness Drop In Classes

    The Red House, 13 Upton Avenue, Forest Gate, Newham, London, E7 9PN.

    Welcome to Newham and East London's Free Mindfulness Meditation Meet Up Group where we practice and cultivate Compassionate Awareness, Insight and Wisdom through Mindfulness Training. Each drop in session offers the opportunity to deeply reflect and contemplate the values of Loving Kindness, Joy, Compassion and Equanimity in a way that calms the mind and body, and enable us to listen deeply so we can respond rather than react to life's challenges within the Urban Environment. Ultimately, each session aims to be a resource for each of us to stay focused and connected to our hearts deepest wishes and access the energy needed to reach our full potential. Whilst sustained Mindfulness training often results in reduced stress and anxiety, and an increase in the ability to relax and be more centred and grounded. It also offers the opportunity to connect with ourselves and others more fully so we can gain clarity about what really matters in our lives and then build new responses to the challenges and blocks that we face in bringing what matters to fruition for our own well being, and the well being of others. A key focus of this group will also be to cultivate the awareness of our interconnection that serves as a resource for compassionate action and wise discernment that propels us to make the changes we need or want to see in the world. Each session will start with a welcome sit, mindful movement exercises including Mindful Walking, Mindful Yoga or Qigong. We will then do a guided sitting practice, followed by open enquiry, teachings and or sharing to facilitate development, learning and understanding of what it is to be human in a Urban Landscape. At the end of each session, there will be a dedication and an opportunity to catch up over a cup of tea and maybe some biscuits. Drop in sessions are offered on alternating Saturdays or a Monday and Friday Evenings when announced. *Please ensure you check the calendar for specific session dates. Start times: Saturdays - 10.30am to 12.30 noon. Weekday sessions 7pm -8.30pm. Sessions are held at The Red House Club, 13 Upton Avenue, Forest Gate, Newham, London E7 9PN. Please check the calendar for specific dates. The sessions are suitable for both experienced practitioners and beginners. You are welcome to sit either on the floor or in a chair so feel free to come as you are. However, you can bring a blanket, meditation cushion or yoga mat etc if you wish. Although mats, cushions and chairs will be provided. Please visit http://www.urbanmindfulnessfoundation.co.uk for further information on other retreat days, courses and events. Finally, whilst the drop in sessions are offered Free of charge, we welcome any donations to help support the continuation of this wonderful and growing community. The suggested donation is £3 per session for members of the Urban Mindfulness Foundation and £5 per session for non members. Thank you for reading about this wonderful group of mindful practitioners and we look forward to practising with you soon.
