The Tuesday Evening Meditation Group is currently on its Summer Break and will return in mid-September.
This is a small, relaxed and informal gathering for those who would like to join together with others in a friendly, relaxed environment to explore Mindfulness or further develop their meditation practice.
While it is open to everyone, the group best suits those with some Mindfulness or other meditation experience who are looking to deepen and enrich their own, existing meditation practice in the supportive environment of a great bunch of like-minded people. The evening includes several periods of group guided meditation (which can be up to half an hour long) and some teaching about Mindfulness principles. There is also opportunity to chat and get to know other group members during the coffee break. Refreshments are provided.
Note - chairs are provided for seated meditation, but please feel free to bring your own cushion for comfort and a blanket/shawl if you tend to get cool when sitting for a period of time. (You are also very welcome to bring along your own meditation cushion/stool/bench if you would prefer to use this.)
There is a modest admission charge to help cover room hire, etc:
Waged - £5
Concession/Unwaged - £3

This meetup is run by the Nottingham Mindfulness Group - See Here (http://www.meetup.com/Nottingham-Mindfulness-Group-Meditation-Mindful-Living/) for more information.
Our open, public meetings are designed to share information about Mindfulness and to offer the opportunity to experience and practice Mindful meditation, plus the chance to socialise with others who are interested in Mindfulness (or meditation in general). These meetings are not structured to form a progressive course or formal training in Mindfulness, and they do not, in and of themselves, constitute a "Mindfulness-Based" therapy (such as MBSR or MBCT). We publish and promote comprehensive details of the formal classes and courses in Mindfulness and "Mindfulness-Based" therapies that are available in Nottingham and the wider East Midlands - please ask us for a free copy of this information if it would be of interest to you.
Any information provided in the course of our meetings is not intended to be taken as a replacement for medical advice. Any person with a condition requiring medical or therapeutic treatment should consult a qualified medical practitioner or therapist.
Mindfulness and other forms of meditation are safe and appropriate practices for the vast majority of people and they are proven to offer a wide range of benefits, including the lowering of stress and deep levels of relaxation. However current research indicates that all forms of meditation (including Mindfulness) may be unwise for people with bipolar vulnerability or those who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD). If you are currently receiving treatment for any form of mental health issue (or have received such treatment in the recent past, or have reason to believe that you might need such treatment), you should consult your doctor or health care professional before engaging with Mindfulness or any form of meditation.
